When you uninstall an app from BlackBerry AppWorld, the particular app will fall into Uninstalled/Archive category in My world. Although it provides the fastest way to get it back if needed.

Know your BlackBerry PIN

Every BlackBerry smartphone has an unique “PIN number”. This PIN number is hardcoded in BlackBerry smartphone. Thus, it can’t be changed even if you switch the SIM card. My advice when you bought a new BlackBerry smartphone, the very first thing you should do is find out the PIN number.

How to find out BlackBerry PIN
At home screen, press menu button -> Options -> Status

BlackBerry PIN is playing important role when everytime signal in or out, browsing the internet, sending and receiving emails, instant message and etc. Knowing your friend's PINs, you can actually compose a PIN message to them directly. Compare to email, that email signal must travel thru their dedicated mail server, but PIN Message is travel straight from your BlackBerry to your friend’s BlackBerry instantly. As I can say this is the fastest method of BlackBerry-to-BlackBerry communication.

How to send PIN Message
Open new compose email, insert your friend’s PIN number into To field instead of their email address.

There is another BlackBerry-to-BlackBerry communication with native IM – BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). Adding your friend’s PIN into BBM will link up both BlackBerry smartphones together. With BBM, both of you can have instant message chatting or file sharing without paying single cent to carrier. (Provided you must have BIS services enabled, and depend on which BIS package you have taken from carrier. Carrier will only charge on BIS package accordingly)
Just to share that latest BBM currently officially available at BlackBerry App World for download.

Key features include:

■New chat UI
■Updated picture posting feature
■Easier main contact menu
■Updated menu options for ease of use
■Add any text messaging contact and have them show up with other BBM contacts
■Overall movement between chats and group chat has been greatly improved

There are many methods in the internet to remove IT policy, but no one is 100% guaranty successful. I found myself the following method is most workable with higher successful rate. So, please do not ask me for support if you have tried on my method but still not working.
