    Find an old PIN number

    Advertisement



    So I gave my old BB Pearl to a friend as a loaner and he "lost" it. I'm not sure I 100% believe him, so I wanted to PIN message the phone to see if its alive and working. I have the IMEI but not the PIN number. Is there a way to figure that out?

    Did you ever have that pin tied to any apps?

    Thanks a ton! I thought I had the IMEI, but I erased it. Thank goodness I havent ordered anything from handango yet!!!

    OK, so now that I have the PIN, is there a way to check to see if the phone is in use? I did send a PIn message that just said "test" but nothing has been sent back yet.

    You could call up your carrier and have them report the device as stolen/lost to RIM.
    (the carrier will know your old IMEI and IMSI - they'll blacklist the device / sim on their network). RIM can blacklist the PIN so it'll never work again.

    This is where it'd be really kewl to have a gps-enabled device with one of the tracker/buddy apps on it (walk over to their house and ask for your device back)

    LOL! That's funny! Just sent it for giggles. I did have someone to offer to lookup the the device, but I have a feeling it really is lost.
