    I feel a little silly asking this question now, after having my blackberry for so long.

    What is the purpose of the password within the Blackberry Messenger application?
    I see that you can set it to prompt you for a password before adding contacts….is this it?

    Initially, I hoped that perhaps this password would be used to restore a contact list that may be wiped in case of a “Hard Reset” or the like; however, I‘ve not found this to be the case (although I cannot guarantee I’ve ever used the same password between wipes.)

    Also, has anybody found a way to change the Blackberry Messenger password?
    Thanks to all who will reply with personal insight,

    Thanks Peter!

    Although, that really wasn't my actual question. lol

    I know that this password can be set as a requirement for adding contacts.

    What I was wondering was:

    " Is this the extent of its usefulness?"

    And...

    "Can the messenger password be changed?"

    Thats the only thing that the RIMs KDB offers to BBmessenger and a password.

    But the thing is that I nvr setup a password if I uses the messenger for the first time. Also I didn't find a how or why to change it.
