I wont suggest your attempting to use a found blackberry but the first thing you should have done is call the carrier.
If the SIM is locked there is nothing you can do.
Use SIM card security to add another level of security to your device. This level of security is designed to prevent unauthorized use of your
BlackBerry® device or SIM card by locking the SIM card with a PIN code. If you lock your SIM card, other people cannot remove your SIM
card and insert their own and they cannot remove your SIM card and insert it into another device.
If you have protected your SIM card with a PIN code, you must type the PIN code before you can remove your SIM card and insert it into
Protect your SIM card with a PIN code
Verify that your wireless service provider has provided you with a SIM card PIN code.
1. In the device options, click Advanced Options.
2. Click SIM Card.
3. Press the Menu key.
4. Click Enable Security.
5. Type your SIM card PIN code.
6. Click the trackball.
Note: If you type the SIM card PIN code incorrectly three times, your SIM card does not function. Contact your wireless service provider
for more information.
