Default Peer to peer or PIN

Please Login to Remove!

Hopefully I'm not repeating a topic but I searched the forum and couldn't find anything. I understand how to use PIN messaging but had heard that it is possible (maybe only with older bb's) to read someone elses PIN messages. I don't understand completely but is there a way to change your PIN to someone elses? Or is there another way to read anothers PIN messages?

PINs are coded in the hardware. Only way to change PINs is with specical equipment. No way to read or recieve someone else's PINs.

so even if the BB is not activated, the PIN that is there will still remains even when it is activated?

The PIN is hardcoded to the BlackBerry. Activated, deactivated, dead or alive. The PIN belongs to one unique BlackBerry.

The end.

Not that I am aware of. It is not SMS; it should be part of the monthly service.

Default Forwarding SMS

Hello all,

I haven't posted very much because most things are already answered if you do a search on them (see, us newbies aren't completely untrainable!).

While it's slightly off-topic, my question is related:

I get SMS from some people and want to forward them as e-mails. Is this possible? If so, how?

Thanks,

Tim

Only if you copy and paste the text into a new e-mail message. There is no way to forward an SMS.
