    Not that I am aware of unless they work for your cell provider.

    What kind of trouble did you get into??

    Privacy is a fantasy. Everything is for sale. Sad but true. I have a good friend in the insurance industry. You would be shocked at how easy it is to grab all the info on anyone...absolutely anyone. .

    Tracing? Ok, that's a creepy thought! The only people who would be able to get any info would be the cell phone provider, but as to an ordinary person, probably not.

    OK....so whileI do know that "everything is for sale" and there really is no such thing as privacy---I just wanted to make sure that someone couldn't get a pin, call the cell provider and say "Hey, I have this person's phone...here's the pin....who is it so I can send them their phone" or something like that.

    And LOL @ doughdaddy! No trouble! Just checking before I do something that could get me in trouble!

    The average person is not going to have easy access to that info. So no worries, I was merely making the point that while we would all like to think our personal info is safe, unfortunately if someone wants it bad enough there are ways for them to get it. Ways that normal people like you & I wouldn't think of because we don't think like criminals. At the end of the day it's no different than I'd theft.

    Nope because all the PIN serves on a blackberry is to seperate one device from another. Its not like the ime number or something like that. No one can trace you. But I think thats right, I might be wrong

    Just a friendly reminder that your pin number is registered with your cellular carrier. And most carriers quitely sell the data they have to third party agencies as another form of income for the carriers. Especially in a bad economy.

    You also give insurance companies access to your cellular information. Many insurance companies are now denying claims if they find that you are texting or talking on a cell phone right before a crash. Your granting them access is how they find out about it.

    aight i'm no lawyer(although i do play one on tv and i did stay at a holiday inn last night) but i find it hard to believe an insurance company could deny a claim because of this unless it is either illegal in your state to do this or there was a disclaimer stating this in your policy.
