BB pin to iphone app

Hello, I hope I'm in the right place. If not please point me in the right direction.
Helping my uncle a long time BB user with the BB iPhone app.
Set up asked for an email address but not a pin and issued a new pin.
Is there a way to combine the 2 or use the original BB pin in the iPhone app. ?

All help is greatly appreciated .

Thank you

Re: BB pin to iphone app

No, the activation will issue a new PIN for the iOS device. PINs are unique to each handset.


If he formerly had a BBM version 7 on a BlackBerry, using his former BlackBerryID email address and password would restore his former contacts.


Otherwise, just create the BBID and install the app... it's great!
