    a blackberry pin is a letter/number combination assigned to each bb hand set. it allows users to send pin based email-like msgs and/or IM style messages through bbm. It counts under data portion of your plan. most US plans builds in unlimited PIN msging with BIS or BES data plan.

    text messages, or SMS, is a short message system of up to 160 characters and does not fall under data portion. most providers charge per text unless you purchase a plan for texting.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ also when you receive a pin from someone you don't know. It displays your name not just numbers

    Your blackberry messenger application preloaded on your Pearl can be used as an instant messenger. Awesome way to connect and chat with fellow BBer's and covered under your data plan as mentioned before.
