    New gal to BB world

    Advertisement



    Hi. I was wondering first of all, if you give out your PIN and someone you wish you hadn't given your PIN to becomes a pain, is there anyway to stop them from sending you a PIN message? Second, is there a way to turn off the PIN messaging while you sleep, but still allow phone calls and emails to come through?

    I just bought a Pearl and I have mannny more questions, but this is one of the important ones.

    Thanks,
    nopjnite

    nopjnite,

    There is a way to block all PIN messages, but unfortunately not specific ones. If someone is bothering you, be honest and upfront with them and ask them to either stop pinning you or not to pin you as often. I find that honesty usually works.

    As for only having the phone on at night, one of the options in Profiles is Phone Only, this should stop all mails and PINs arriving until you change the profile again.

    Hope this helps.

    So, would you like to be PIN'ed? I'm looking for PINing buddies. I have a bunch pending. Only three nice stackers have replied. I'm new to the whole BB messenging thing...having fun with it. TIA

    Re: New gal to BB world

    Thank you all for responding and for the welcome.

    I haven't pin'd with anyone yet, I only asked this because I like to know things a head of time, just in case. Sorry, I didn't mean to imply, but thank you for your concern, it is appreciated.

    So, with that being said, I would like to pin, but I don't know how.

    Here's my pin and I will take the plunge, so to speak.

    Re: New gal to BB world

    I'd suggest just creating an email addy for gmail that you'll use purely for back n' forth chat, attach it to your bb and give that out or just install JiveTalk and give out your aim sn. Both Email and AIM have a nice block feature built in.

    Everyone on the site is very nice, but some are rather.. clingy. a convo is a convo no matter the platform, so why not just cover yourself in the event you want them gone and wish to avoid drama. If you end up liking them, you can always go ahead and give them your PIN. Thing is a PIN is nontransferable, so if your phone ever breaks, is lost or stolen.. poof. There goes your list.

    My 2cents.

    Re: New gal to BB world

    There was a link posted by another user that MIGHT be a viable solution to what you are looking for. Personally, I have no experience with it. The software on you BB will only allow blocking all or none of incoming, PIN messages but not one specific PIN #. It's too bad, there's always one out there huh.

    Re: New gal to BB world

    To silence the PIN under the Messenger (not the email PIN) you can open BB Messenger, hit Menu then My Status, and change it to Unavailable and just put a quick message like "in bed" then hit OK. Any new messages you get in that status will arrive silently. It does not affect your phone calls or emails
