A Simple Hack For Discovering Your PIN
What is a Blackberry PIN?
Your PIN is your personal identification number and can be used to communicate with other users via PIN messaging. On BlackBerry, PIN messaging is akin to text messaging, but is only available for use with other BlackBerry users and it appears in an eye-catching red font to make it stand out a bit from the rest. When sending a PIN message, you are also allotted a lot more character space to express yourself.
Your PIN is also useful for chatting with another user via BlackBerry Messenger (often referred to as BBM, this is the IM…or instant messaging…program for BlackBerry). Other users will often ask you for this number so that they can engage in private conversations with you over the BlackBerry network, but if you don’t automatically know this number, it can sometimes be an inconvenience to have to stop and hunt for it.
Easy Blackberry Hack for Fast PIN Access:
Now, however, this super easy technique will produce the number for you in no time flat. Simply open a blank email and type the word mypin and press the space key. The number that has now replaced the text is your pin number. You may want to email this to your friends (since you already have the blank email open) or you can just read the number off to your fellow user and then delete the email. The main point is that it’s an easier step to remember for some than having to go into your Options menu to search for the number.
You can also find out your phone’s version in the same way. In the blank email, simply type myver and hit the space key. Your phone’s model and operating system information will be displayed on the screen. Ditto for accessing your telephone number, simply type mynumber and hit the space key and your number will appear on your BlackBerry screen.
