    Yes you can make an emergency phone call, but the PIN feature requires the unlimited data that the service providers have. The answer would be no, you are not able to PIN without an active SIM. I have worked for at&t for 4 years and never heard of anyone doing it.

    thanks for the quick reply...

    so does my pin message (or corp email or any msg for that matter) go through this path?
    - my bb > my carrier > bb ent server > bb server > recip bb ent server > recip carrier > recip bb

    i have no idea, but i just wanted to see how msgs/emails travel...

    you phone has to be conected to some sort of service to use anyform of messaging. to be connected network you need a sim card inserted so your phone will get the required service books to be able to do so.

    The ability to make an emergency call without a SIM is not universal. If you read the following article, you'll get a bit more of a sense of the issues involved:

    Just as a test (and out of boredom) I was surprised at what numbers did come up as emergency numbers when I tried them on my BB. 999, 911, and 112 all operate as an emergency number in my 8700c.
