    Re: What is Blackberry PIN messaging? Answered!

    I have looked and have not been able to find where anybody has explained how pin messaging actually works. I thought I had read that it was directly through BB sat's, but that is not possible is it?

    Im sorry if this has been answered and I just didnt get it.

    Re: What is Blackberry PIN messaging? Answered!

    Hi, if anyone could help me out, when I try to PIN message my buddy, the message never is sent. I get a red "X" and it says general failure something. We were right beside each other too and don't know what is going on.
    Does he need a data plan as well? He tells me he doesn't have one.

    Re: What is Blackberry PIN messaging? Answered!

    Hello everyone!

    I was just talking to someone about how to do radio communications, since I am deaf. I have a need to be able to communicate with my unit mates, and I want to know how I can do this in the event phone service, electricity, and satellite access goes down. I was told that in this event, the BB's would act like walkie talkies, sending PIN messages to each other directly, and that there is a 30-40 mile range limit to doing so without access to any routers (because they've been nuked/EMP'ed). In other words, you buy the BB's by themselves, and only use them as "text walkie talkies" for short-range usage.

    Please confirm. Thanks!

    it doesn't matter how far away the contact is you can still pin them as long as you have their pin.

    yeah unfortunately without a data plan his services won't work, because pin messaging uses data, and he isn't subscribed to any

    pin messaging is a mix between text and instant messaging. you have a list of buddies that you can add to. and you send messages over the data network, it's quicker than sending an sms, and cheaper as well...or not as expensive. it comes out of your data package so it'll never charge you unless you don't have an unlimited data package. you can talk to any blackberry in th world, you just have to have that other person's pin....hope that helps
