    Re: What is the difference between PIN messaging and BlackBerry Messenger?

    BB Messenger - Sending/receiving PIN messages in an Instant Messenger style application (similar to AOL IM or MSN). This uses data but does not fill your inbox with messages.

    PIN Messages - Sending/receiving PIN messages via Messages>Compose PIN Message option. This is just like email except the address of the sender/recipient is a PIN number, not an email address. This WILL fill up your inbox but still uses data.

    Hope this helps.

    Plus, PIN messages are BB to BB and do not get stored on any system such as your carrier's server if you wanted to send some messages that could not be tracked. This is if you're not on a BES of course.

    So PIN msgs aren't considered text msgs? I don't have a text msg'g plan because I rarely use them, so it's good to know I'm not being charged for PIN msgs.

    That is correct. Because it is more of an email, not an SMS and doesn't have message length restrictions (160 characters) like SMS do. You do have to have a data plan for PIN msgs to work though.
