How do I send a BlackBerry PIN Message?

A personal identification number, or PIN, uniquely identifies BlackBerry devices and BlackBerry-enabled devices on the wireless network. If you have contacts who use a BlackBerry device or a BlackBerry-enabled device and you know their PIN number, you can send them PIN messages. PIN messages are not routed through your email account. When your PIN message is delivered to the recipient, in a message list, a D appears with a check mark beside the PIN message.
