My phone is filling up with spam BBmessages - all junk/ unreadable/ foreign characters. It went quiet for a whil
e but I have had over 500 so far this afternoon alone. I have deleted messenger, but they just appear on my mainscreen. I have changed my blackberry ID and associated email; I have deleted my emails and email clients and have switched off wifi, but still the messages are appearing - another 8 while I've been typing this!
Can anyone help?

I don't use social sites and as far as I am aware I have not left my pin (I assume you mean BB ID p/w?) on any sites, apart from Blackberry World. In fact I have changed my BB ID username (email address) & password.
It doesn't seem to relate to email accounts though, when I opened one it was 'Received Using: Peer to Peer To: 23AF2249 From: 25D71008, Title: <$RemoveOnDelivery,SuppressSaveInSentItems> BLACKBERRYMESSENGERINVITESTAGE2, <<no text>> then gibberish.
I have checked a few more and they are all sent to 23AF2249.

Thankyou for this - I had no idea what the Pin was or what pin messages are; I have no idea what my pin is nor how these people could have got my pin - I bought the phone new and have never used this facility. They are all spam as many appear to be Arabic or Hindi(?) script and others just random letters & numbers.
However, your note gave me an idea and I have now found my pin (Options/ Status) and learned what pin messages are. I have now blocked incoming Pin messages (Options/ Security/ Firewall) and it seems to work (12 blocked while sending this!).
Hopefully this will help others with the same problem, though I still have no idea how they got my pin.
