    pin messages are similar to email...bbm is a list screen with the entire conversation in it and is much like the normal 'chat' programs you can 'ping' someone to wake them up, you can see when they are away or unavailable.

    yeah...that's the only way how.

    PIN messaging and BBM are for PIN/bb users ONLY.

    Ok, well when I try to add someone to my list...

    I go to the menu, and select Add a Contact...

    It opens my address book and makes me pick someone, but I choose "Use Once"

    Then it asks for an email, is that where I put in the pin?

    I have OS 4.1 and when I click [Use Once] and click the middle spinwheel, there is no option to add using PIN. What am I missing?

    it might be something not in that version OS. I do not have a 7290 so I cannot tell for sure... but seems they add a few small things here and there with OS upgrades so this might be one of them to come for ya

    Add their PIN to their contact entry and try adding them after that.
