FWIW, PIN="personal identification number", so referring to a "pin
number" is referring to a "personal identification number number". Yes,
I know it's an incredibly common reference, but that doesn't make it any
less distracting/irritating when I see it.
Sort of like "hot water heater"... The water can't be hot /enough/, or
there'd be no reason to heat it! It's a /cold/ water heater! (Tho here
in Phoenix in the summer, "hot water heater" isn't an entirely inaccurate
description, actually. Even without additional heat, the water comes out
of the tap at ~30C/86F.)

Unfortunately, BT's not something I've used either so no personal
experience here to help you from, but I can't just leave you hangin' with
only the number-number complaint, so hopefully... Google to the rescue!
I just tried it so here's a link to the quick "bluetooth kde
pin" (without the quotes) google I did. The Debian Wiki hit (first hit
from here) looks useful, containing information for kde, gnome, and
alternatives, tho as I said I've no personal experience so can't validate
