Exclamation Plz help really weird situation

Please Login to Remove!

I have a titanium 8320 that was originally from tmo, i'm now living in jamaica and would like to switch carriers so i can use the local carrier. I got the phone unlocked and I can use the local digicel sim, but i can't get the blackberry service activated because i didn't from my tm o service, i jus swapped sims. I don't wanna disconnect my tmo I just wanna use the local service while i'm here

All you should need is a local sim card with a BB data plan on it. Your BB can only be on one carrier's BIS at a time, though.

You should be able to login to TMobile and remove any email accounts from your email setup. That should free up the PIN to be used on another BIS System.
