HI, i've bought a used 8700r no battery and no charger, but it didn't look like a scam, now that i've got a battery the phone is asking for a pin, is there a way to solve that problem? the phone was really cheap but it still would be a shame just to throw it out.

sorry, when i turn the phone on it says to enter a password, also has a number of attempts
in the brackets eg(2/10 )
the previous owner doesn't answer my emails.

Type the password wrong ten times (follow the prompts) and it will wipe out the BlackBerry and allow you to use it.
