Default Can I get this BB to work for me...?

Please Login to Remove!

Hopefully someone can help but I have a feeling this will go nowhere...

My BB's screen got badly cracked last week. I've no insurance, so I've got to pay out for a new one.

However my friend is a cab driver, and he just gave me a BB that was left in the back of his cab in August. He said as nobody has asked for it by now they're unlikely too.

So I put my sim in and turned it on after a wee charge and the screen has a box pop up saying 'Device is locked' with three options below that: Unlock, Emergency, and cancel. There is also a lock symbol in the bottom right hand corner.

I guess this is the security thing for when the phone is lost or stolen. Is there anyway around it...?

It probably doesn't help that I'm with Orange and this is a Virgin Mobile phone, or does that not make a diiference...?

Seems like a waste of a handset if nothing can be done....
