    Vegas casinos and PIN messaging

    Advertisement



    Ya'll,

    I bought my husband the Pearl (cuz I just love mine) and am trying to get him to convert from his 8125 (the poor Pearl is still sitting in his box). I used the *9/11 PIN Messaging* scenario in praise and as to why BOTH of us should have BB's. We are going to Vegas this week and was wondering if anyone has used their BB's to PIN while in the casinos? I know the 'cell' reception in most casinos is horrible, at best. Last time we were out there we got separated and the darn cell phone was useless...so, casinos and PIN messaging?

    If the cellphones were useless, then the PIN messaging is going to be even more useless.

    Pin messaging uses the DATA connection, and you are only going to get that if you have a GPRS or EDGE connection.

    However, text messages can be sent over GSM, which is what you're probably going to be stuck in if you have a really crappy signal considering there are 50 floors of concrete, wire, rooms and high priced escorts that you are underneath.

    So, usually text is the way to go if you are getting a very crappy signal.

    Most casinos now have repeaters in them that have been added by the carriers. I would check with your service provider and see if they offer coverage in the casino.
