Talking 7100T: PIN Number: I heard someone

Please Login to Remove!

can email you from just using your PIN number. Is that true? How does that work. I assume you need to first know that persons PIN number.

Sorry.. I new to this blackberry stuff.

Thanks

yes the PIN is just like an email address but you can use it in the blackberry messenger also.

So I can compose an email and enter a persons PIN number in the email address field and it should go through?

PIN messages only work between two BlackBerry devices. Sorry for stating the obvious.

Gotcha, I did hear that. I looked on the back of my 7100T and didn't see a PIN number. Darn thing has to be somewhere.

Keep in mind Cingular does not yet support PIN messaging nor the messenger - but all the others do at this point as far as I know.

Untrue about the PIN messaging. I use PIN messaging all the time, first with my 7280 and now with my 7100g. When they start supporting Blackberry Messenger, I'll be happier.

I am waiting for my 7100t to come today. Does it come with Blackberry Messenger pre-installed?
