    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i don't think so, but I'm still a rookie.
    Good question I'd like to know as well.

    Not possible sorry.
    PIN to PIN messaging is a blackberry handheld utility only.
    Would be snazzy though if possible.

    Hmmm...There are all sorts of 3rd party apps (jive talk, ramble etc) that allow you to emulate IM clients via data, I wonder if any software wonks have tried to crack this.

    Probably not. If you are already using Jive, Ramble, etc. then you have a Yahoo ID, AIM, etc. No point/need to spend time and resources to develop something not necessary.

    The point is to send an IM from a laptop to someone on a BB via PIN when that BB user who (like my wife) is not a techie and doesn't have or use any of the usual IM suspects/clients.

    i would doubt RIM would allow such a thing with a 3rd party company to interface with their 'secure' messaging.

    Hey, RIM is being magnanimous enough to allow us to turn the Berries on.



    (Kidding aside, of the computer-related companies I've ever dealt with, in my book RIM has the best record of all)

    I don't think I would want such a thing in the first place. Being able to PIN from a laptop or other GPC environment creates the possibility of 'war-PINning' ...and other mischief.
