Ping a blackberry device?

Hi all,

 

Is there a way to ping a blackberry device without having the Monitoring service running?

 

Thanks in advance,

Alex

Hi knotty,
Thanks for your reply!
That just puts the message in the queue and notifies me, if it's delivered, right?
I wanted to send a ICMP ping to the last known IP, like the Monitoring service does. No way?
Thanks,
Alex
