A BlackBerry ping is a device to get someone’s attention on BlackBerry Messenger. When you ping someone who has BlackBerry Messenger installed, his phone will vibrate. A ping is a nice way to let people know you are thinking of them, even if you have nothing to say or can’t talk at the moment.
Pinging Someone Using Your BlackBerry
To use the feature, open up Blackberry Messenger, click “Contacts” and select the person you want to ping. Press the BlackBerry icon key and select “Ping Contact.” Your contact’s phone will vibrate and your phone number will appear on his phone -- unless he has vibration turned off, in which case he will only get your phone number on his screen. You can turn off the ping vibration on your phone under the options key in BlackBerry Messenger by clearing the “Vibrate When Receiving Ping” check box, pressing the BlackBerry key and saving the setting.
