    Re: Compose PIN??

    A PIN is just like a text message you can send to another BB users if you have their PIN. It's using Data instead of you SMS plan. Comes in handy if you have a SMS limit per month. Hope this helps.

    oh one more thing, it usually turns Red to denote that its a PIN and not a regular text

    Re: Compose PIN??

    you mean I could potentially send my wife a PIN message that uses only data... If i know her phone PIN... that number that pops up when you connect to DM?

    also does it work for non BB's?? like my brother who has a SLVR

    never mind im a dumbass I read the post halfassed at first.. k only BB's.

    yes the PIN is the number that comes up when you connect you DM. Or you can hold the ALT button down and spell out RACE or Settings>Options>Status

    ^^^ same here...lol...

    and getting it to beep or make sound when it comes in you need to select what you want for sounds.
    Go to Profiles first and make sure its not on Vibrate or quiet. Go to Advanced at the bottom and press select. From there you can set the sounds and alerts for everything from Email to Pins to MMS etc. hope this helps.

    i'd have to say that PIN is more like email than sms, in that you can have a subject, body, and the ability to attach a contact entry from your address book.
