PIN [. pin] noun:
Each BlackBerry device is assigned a unique eight-digit number called a
personal identification number (PIN). You can find your BlackBerry's
PIN by selecting the Options icon, then clicking Status. Your PIN will
appear in the Status screen.

Sending a PIN message
There are two ways to send messages directly to a BlackBerry user's PIN
rather than to the user's email address, depending on whether you have
the PIN stored in a contact in your address book or not. If you have a
contact in your address book with the PIN entered, you can select the
PIN using the Compose application. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Select the Compose icon (the open envelope and pencil).
2. In the "To:" list, scroll to the correct contact. Click the
trackwheel to display a drop-down menu for the contact.
3. If you have stored a PIN for this contact, PIN will appear in the
menu. Select it.
4. Compose your message and send it as usual.

When the message is sent, it will be routed using the PIN rather than
the email address.

Note: The next time you select that contact with the Enter key, the PIN
will be used rather than the email address. To reset the contact to use
an email address, simply follow the directions listed above and select
Email rather than PIN from the menu.

If you want to enter a PIN not associated with a contact, you can type
the PIN directly into the "To:" field. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Select the Compose icon (the open envelope and pencil).
2. Scroll up to [Use Once] at the top of the "To:" list. Click the
trackwheel to display a drop-down menu.
3. From the menu, select PIN. Enter the PIN and press Enter.
4. Compose your message and send it as usual.
