    IIRC, PIN to PIN is a more secure communication method than SMS. Someone correct me on that if I'm wrong.

    You are correct... and simply, it's faster... it's IM on a Berry in essence - - Berry 2 Berry... not to mention NO additional charges or fees, as noted above...

    How about the fact that you can send pics, music, and vida along with files all for free IF you are sending to another PIN enabled phone. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: PIN vs. SMS, why?

    I for one have had "chats" both via exchange of PIN messages and via SMS's... and both work just fine. As far as I know I don't have the option of using BB Messenger on my 7105t; but as you see it is not missed

    IMs like YahooMess, AIM etc came preinstalled and involve extra payment to be used. I never bothered.

    Sending SMS just adds up to my bill but PIN messaging (and instant messages) utilizes my monthly allocated data by my carrier of which I never exceeded the monthly data allocated.

    PIN over SMS, agree with s16ri.

    Also PIN is new to me.. SMS is so... 1999.

    I did not know you could pics and video over PIN. That is a very nice option. Regarding the comment about PIN messaging not costing, that is true, but do you really know anyone that has a BB without a decent amount of text messaging/SMS included?

    Re: PIN vs. SMS, why?

    Yes, I don't. I don't need to pay my carrier any extra for SMS. Up until I got my BB I didn't have any use for something that was limited to 160 characters, and didn't allow special characters. Still don't

    True... Last time I had use for SMS was when my friend and I lost each other at LAX. Her phone isn't a BlackBerry and a telephone call would have gone to Europe and back

    My work Blackberry has no texting included -- actually all SMS is blocked. PIN messaging to others in my group serves the purpose.

    Another thing the BB messenger will let you do is group messaging/chat. Me and several friends are usually talking all the time. No pin, no bb messenger, not chat.

Anybody can sms but not everyone can PIN.

    PIN for International ..

    I have unlimited texting (SMS) with my carrier, but its only for US. If I receive an SMS from Germany, it cost me .20. As I understand it, PIN messaging is free anywhere on the globe. I think this is right. Correct me if I'm mistaken.

    I LOVE PIN messaging on BB Messenger and via Compose PIN messaging. Right now I'm trying to explain to a friend who has an 8100 on T-Mo what all is included in her data package (Minutes and Mail). I don't think the reps there were very smart when explaining all it could do. She thought it counted against her minutes to send any type of data.
