pin question

ive never owned any type of bb, but im seriously considering getting the new bb bold.

a retailer at a local mall is selling it for 550, but NO PIN.


from my understanding, you need a PIN to do access many of the online features, such as email and messenger?

i would like to know what would need to be done to obtain a PIN?

Re: pin question

I'm pretty sure you can't buy one without a pin. The PIN is hard coded into each unit (its equivalent to a NIC).

Re: pin question

Please ask him if he means the PIN you need to switch on your device or the BlackBerry PIN (unique for every device).


I don't understand what your dealer meant by that. Please clarify with him. 

If your question was answered, please accept it as a sollution and / or give Kudos ;-)
