    When you scroll up to "Use Once", rather than clicking next, click your menu button and there will be an option to Request By Pin.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    When in BB Messenger, press Menu (button to left of click ball) --> Add a Contact --> scroll to contact --> press Menu --> select Request PIN or Request Email.

    If there is no PIN or email for the highlighted contact, then neither option is available in the menu.

    If you want to add a contact to BB Messenger who is not in your address book, scroll to the very top of the address list to [Use Once] --> Menu --> select Request by PIN. The default is always to request by email (which is slightly absurd).

    Hope this helps!

    Slightly? That's an understatement.

    Yeah, slightly is an understatement, but I don't want to trash RIM too harshly on this one.

    But it's dumb/stupid/silly to make the default add contact via email for an IM app that is based on PIN. The default ought to be PIN, with an option to switch to email.

    RIM!!! Are you listening???

    I think PIN is the best thing that has ever happened with handhelds because even if you have an e-mail or not, every BB device comes with one and it is so simple. i like that in your Contacts you add a users pin under there contact info. I just wish that outlook had this feature in the address book

    Re: problems

    If you open a contact and Click on the All Fields Tab, and select Miscellaneous Fields or All Contact Fields, you will see a field "User Field 1" which will have the PIN for all contacts that have a PIN entered using your BB. Unless of course you have used that field for something else.

    Hope this helps

    With the Exchange server at my company, when looking up an address in the GAL using Outlook, BlackBerry PINs are no where to be found in the address card.

    But, when doing a Lookup on the BlackBerry address book, anyone in the GAL with a PIN has the PIN included in the listing.

    It's just strange that Outlook has not added a "PIN" field....my Mac Address Book has a PIN field!
