    The pics have to be on either the device memory or a media card. Click on Menu then Send A File. Then find the pic you want and Send to BBMessenger Contact. Send to the contact you want.

    I guess I'm one of the one's missing out. I've got only about three friends who have bb's and they're not willing to give it a shot. I'd really like to see how it goes. Price isn't an iissue,as with alltel in the US I have unlimited data and sms. Still no mms on my 8830,though. If anyone wants to pin me,it's in my profile.

    Except that I need to make it clear, Images and Video can only be sent using the PIN Transport though the Blackberry Messenger Contact method.

    2. No limit on length before incurring multiple message charges
    3. No need to provide Phone Number to strangers
    4. Doesn't use Carriers SMS portal, Only the Tower to RIM network connection.
    5. Doesn't require SMS Message Package on Account, therefore no addional costs.
    6. Reliable messaging to BB user no matter which carrier they have or if their carrier has SMS capability/restrictions or not.
    7. ability to send images without incurring MMS charges.

    Exactly my reasons. My principle BB's are on Rogers Wireless. My company BB's are on Telus and my wife is on Telus. Telus is notorious for the "we'll get your SMS out when we feel like it" mentality. When I send a message I want it to go NOW... Not when the Telus network feels like delivering it. I have never seen a PIN take more than a few seconds to go through. There is nothing worse than the wife walking through the door without my espresso beans, smokes, milk, or whatever and then her BB beeps that the message I sent two hours before asking for these items finally comes through.

    Since all my drivers are now provided with Curves, my SMS costs have gone down. They are friends. They take advantage of any technology available. They will SMS whether I ask them not to or not. Now they can PIN and I don't blow my stack at phone bill time. We won't go into the safety issues involved LoL.

    I see why BB messenger is sucha good choice, I dont have a lot of friends that even have a BB. So thats why SMS works slightly better for me. But if all my friends did have a BB then I'd be set.

    Pins and BBM are somewhat the same but not quite. Pin messages where more useful when bb's first came out. For sometime (before rim caught on) you were able to send pins to another bb without paying for bb service. Most importnatly they were not traceable like e-mails were, (however they are now) so it was a way to be able to talk to fellow workers "off the record".

    In the past few years bbm was released which put a user friendly appearance on the PIN function. it reflects a instant message style of mesaging. BBM also allows you to see not only that the message was delivered (check mark with a D), but also if the end user actually read the message (check mark with R).

    Other then that PIN messages today are good to keep nonsense messages off of your e-mail servers. they are delievered instantly rather then the sometimes 5-10 minute delay of emails. Its also good for texting when the message will exceed more then 160 characters. so essentially when comapared to SMS, PIN is exactly the same except it allows for more then 160 characters.

    Every blackberry has it own PIN # no matter which network your on. a quick way to find out your devices pin is to compose any form of message (mms, sms, pin, email) and in the body type the word mypin -just as you see it, then hit the space bar.

    another way is: options-status

    hope this helps....

    I have 15 people in my PIN list. Keeping in touch with family and friends with a BB in this manner...OMG! Freakin' awesome dude!! (my cali surfer imitation..haha)

    I also have Instango installed. It's a free IM/Chat prog. like BeeJive. UI needs work but it suffices for a free AIM/MSN/GTalk/Yahoo consolidated chat client.

    I have removed SMS from my BB plan all together. why? My BB has an email address. if a dumbphone wants to txt me..send a txt to my BB's BIS email account. XXXXXXXXXX@vzw.blackberry.net. And the best part of using the BIS email account...is the speed. I get notified immediately upon arriving on my server. It's just like an SMS message without incurring SMS charges.

    Hope that helps

    On the newer BB OS, bb messenger has a new broadcast message feature that would do this to send a message to all your bb messenger contacts.

    It's encrypted by the blackberry network, is my reason for using it, well I use bbm which sends PIN messages to other bb users, but longer messages PIN messaging is much more effective.
