    PIN messaging/getting PIN #'s

    Advertisement



    is there a way to send a pin request to someone to add them to bb messenger or do i have to contact that person first, get their pin and then message? it just seems kinda silly to have to do it that way, that there would be some kind of pin request feature built in to make life easier.

    On the stacks you could always send them a PM and request PIN number if it is not on the persons profile or visit this thread.

    Yea you have to contact them. Unless they list it on their profile. If they do that then usually they don't mind getting PINs. If unlisted then you gotta ask.

    ok but what about someone not on the board? i have friends that i know have bb's and i want to add them to my bb messenger, so i need to call them, get their pin, and then send a request? that just seems kinda silly. or is there another way that i can add them to my bb messenger without their pin?

    you can send them a SMS/text message to get it...or request by email from BB messenger, but you have to procure it from them somehow since you do not know it already

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ you can add them using their email if they have that email setup on their BB. That's wat I did with all 3 of my BB buddies. Lol! I didn't kno about the pin until a few days ago.

    In other words either way, yes you have to contact them, get their pin and then add them. Sorry no other way

    Me neither. All messengers work that way you have to get the other persons contact info and add em.

    but this isn't a typical messenger. if i have someone's phone number why should i have to have their pin as well? it would be easier if it were possible to add them based on phone number by doing some sort of pin request to obtain it automatically rather than having to ask them for the pin and manually entering it in.

    I'm thankful that I have to give someone my pin. Before you know it, we'll start getting PIN spam otherwise!!!!! Also, RIM is all about security. Someone could get a phone number from caller id. Just my $.02.

    yea but if you could send a "pin request" to a phone number it could be accepted or denied so security would still be ok

    I don't even think that pins and phone numbers can be related that way. Pins run off the RIM servers and phone numbers are ran off the phone carrier. That's my theory on why it can't exchange information like that.
