How to get a BB PIN in Nigeria Blackberry Bold or Curve for MTN Zain Glo Etisalat Messenger

BB PIN can be given out as your BB Messenger ID and useful if you have purchased data plan from MTN Zain Glo or Etisalat even if you are visiting Nigeria. It costs about 5,000 naira per month and you will not be charged for browsing, sending BB messages to other people's BB PINs or emails. For productivity and mobility it is a must have for professionals and ahead of iPhone, E71 and Android Phone nowadays.

Visit a mobile phone provider for more enquiries whether you are using an unlocked Blackberry phone or buying from them.

You can give your BB PIN to people and receive messages from them without giving your phone number to them. Even if you change your phone line or you leave the country and use another network, they can still reach you with Messenger through the BB PIN. But our brothers have been sending me Mohammed Abacha messages because I put my BB PIN online, maybe BB PIN is our new way of scamming the world. Watch out for the bad eggs again.

To send messages: go to messages> options> compose pin> In the "to" field put the BB PIN of your friend.

BlackBerry, what is the PIN and how do I find it?
When manufactured, each BlackBerry device is assigned a unique personal identification number (PIN). This allows identification of each BlackBerry and ensures that mail destined for a particular individual is delivered correctly.

During a synchronization, the redirector associates a PIN with an email account, thereafter making certain that mail in that account is sent to the device with that PIN.

With a BlackBerry, the PIN differs from the Electronic Serial Number (ESN) in that the ESN is tracked by the BlackBerry reseller, whereas the PIN is tracked by the BlackBerry wireless network provider. Some resellers may also track the PIN, but network providers do not track the ESN.

In an enterprise redirector environment such as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Redirector (BES) service at Indiana University, the PIN is stored centrally on the BES server, and is viewable by BES administrators and Support Center personnel with access to the Exchange Account Management tools.

BlackBerry devices support direct PIN-to-PIN emailing; if you know the PIN of your recipient's BlackBerry, you can compose an email message using the PIN instead of the email address. This can be useful for troubleshooting, as a PIN-to-PIN message bypasses the email system entirely. Thus, when you cannot receive email normally but can receive PIN-to-PIN email, the problem is not with the device itself, the RIM (Research in Motion) network, or the wireless provider's network.

Note: PIN-to-PIN messages are not encrypted, and UITS does not recommend them for sending sensitive data. For instructions on sending a PIN-to-PIN message, see With a BlackBerry, how do I send PIN-to-PIN messages?

You can find your BlackBerry's PIN on the device itself, or on the BlackBerry Desktop Manager:

To find your BlackBerry's PIN on the device
For the 7100 model, select Settings, then Options, and then select Status.

For all other models:

1.Select Options.
2.Select Status, and you will then see an 8-digit alphanumeric ID labeled "PIN:".
To find your BlackBerry's PIN on the Desktop Manager
1.Launch the Desktop Manager.
2.Double-click Redirector Settings, and you will see the PIN at the top of the General tab.

What is BlackBerry Messenger?
BlackBerry Messenger is an instant messenger program for BlackBerry-to-BlackBerry communication utilizing your PIN code.

What is a PIN, and where do I find mine?
A PIN is an eight digit alpha-numeric sequence that is assigned to every BlackBerry device. You can find your PIN code by going to Options>Status>PIN. You can also find your PIN code by typing "mypin" into an email (no quotes). The BlackBerry will automatically insert your PIN code.

Where do I get BlackBerry Messenger?
BlackBerry Messenger is built into some of the newer devices. If your device does not come preloaded with BlackBerry Messenger, you can download it at through Internet Explorer or your BlackBerry Browser. You cannot download it through FireFox Browser.

Do I need a data plan to use BlackBerry Messenger?
Yes, BlackBerry Messenger sends pin messages through the BlackBerry servers. A BlackBerry internet plan is required to use this functionality.

Does BlackBerry Messenger cost money to use?
No, BlackBerry Messenger is free to use. It simply uses data from your data plan. It does not use SMS.

How do I add a contact to BlackBerry Messenger?
To add a contact, first open BlackBerry Messenger. Click the track wheel/track ball to bring up the menu and select add contact. When you click on add contact, you will be brought to your address book to select the contact you want to add. Simply click on the contact and select request. If you do not have the contact in your address book, scroll to the top of the list and highlight 'use once'. When you click the wheel, you will be able to request by PIN or by email. Select the appropriate one based on what information you possess. You will be offered the option to personalize the message sent to the recipient before your request is sent.

Are PIN messages private?
The answer to this question is, it depends. If you are on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), you should assume none of your data is private as it all goes through the BES. If you are on a BIS, conversations are not stored on the device, so they should be relatively private.

What about BlackBerry Pearl, how much do these phones cost in Nigeria compared to outside? Are the networks open to you bringing in an unlocked phone? You can get a Pearl for around $350 but in Naija, you need at least 100,000 naira. Imagine? Thanks for the info.
