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

BBM for iPhone
