    Didn't think of that, great idea!

    Options > security settings/options > firewall if you didn't know already joeyinpa.

    Looks like you could block Pin Messages as a whole and add exceptions. (contacts and specific addresses)

    Not a bad idea Aleks...

    It would definitely work as a temporary solution. You could block all incoming PINS except people in your contacts, as well as specify any other PIN or email address you would want to let through. Not necessarily the best long term solution but at least you could get a little relief from not getting them.

Since I spend 99% of my time online here, my guess is that someone grabbed my PIN, had read an intro of mine, and now I'm getting text messages calling me a fa**ot.

    Can anyone tell me what/where to report it? I won't "name" the person here or reveal his PIN, unless I'm asked privately by an admin.
    Most things I can tolerate: one gets used to names like that over 20 years or so, but, NOT via my BB PIN!

    My Thanks in Advance,
    JoeyLee*
    I would report to carrier and police who can legally pull up the persons account (name, address etc). Make sure to have ALL the "harassing" messages and if the authorities also view as harassment they will escalate from there.

    I did the firewall, so that should help. Thanks again for everyone's help and suggestions.

    p.s. if I were to actually try and report this to the local police here in Scranton, the first thing they'd ask me is "Well, are you a f****t?" - typical for around here, unfortunate but typical.
    Thanks Y'all*,

    Too bad it's not the other way around, and you can just block one PIN.

    I swear somewhere on Blackberry's site there was a way to check and see what provider a PIN is located with, but for the life of me I can't find it. Anyone else know where it is or have it bookmarked?

    I thought it would be worth a shot for him to report it to this person's carrier as well. Maybe they can help do something about it.

    I would still encourage you to report it your carrier. Most carriers have a security department that look dimly on this kind of thing.

    Report to the fuzz and their carrier, and the FCC.
    Makes for a wonderful lawsuit!
    Tracing their pin is pretty easy.

    Sorry to hear it joeyinpa, it's sad that people choose to disrespect others in this manner. No one deserves that.
