PIN puzzle - old phone stolen - new phone still can access BBM contacts set with old pin

I had my Curve 9300 stolen last Sunday and immediately phoned my service provider to block the sim card and blacklist the phone.

Now I have a new 9360 which I used to restore contacts etc from the BB Desktop Software. I'm confused that I can still chat to my BBM contacts without changing the pin to the new one.

Is this correct as I thought the pin was related ONLY to the old phone?

Any help much appreciated.

If you restored a backup of your phone, it would have restored the backup of your BBM contacts. As part of the restore process it would update your contacts lists with your new PIN.
