I just turned off my TMO 8700g and then turned it on again. The box that pops up says, "Enter PIN code(10 left)". This code is not the PIN messaging code. My old BB 6230 did the same thing. I'm amazed that no one else has this happen to them. How did they turn it off? This PIN code is not the same as the security password which I have disabled, but when enabled it says "security password" not "PIN."
Why I brought this up: I was at an airport and needed to check my email. I powered it up and kept trying the password which would not work. When I looked closer I realized it was asking me for a PIN code. I put in xxxx and it worked. I had mixed up the two
I still want to know why I'm the only one who gets this PIN code. My assumption is that I'm not the only one, and that others just are not posting because they agree with me.
