Re: Can i keep my old BBM Pin when switching to iPhone

No, sorry, your BlackBerry device PIN is hard coded to the device and remains with the device.

 

You can however keep your BlackBerryID to use on the iPhone when installing and connecting to BBM on iOS.

Your new iPhone will then be assigned a new PIN for BBM.

 

You can find out more here:

Getting Started with BBM on Android and iPhone

Hi

 

I too am having 9780 device. However i bought iphone and downloaded the bbm. With my blackberry id its still not restoring my old bbm contacts n groups even though i had taken the back up.
