Re: what is pin means in blackberry

Hello vicky4u66,


Each BlackBerry device has a unique electronic serial number (ESN) and Personal Identification Number (PIN). It is used for various features of the blackberry including BIS account for email requires both the IMEI and PIN to function properly. Also, when you add someone to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) it adds them via BlackBerry PIN.


Hope this helps,
