Default PIN release without calling the operator, possible?

Please Login to Remove!

hi...

i've heard people complaining about PIN get suspended or PIN is already used, and in every threads, they all said have to call operator to delete PIN that is already associated with a BIS account

so what i have in mind is if we could actually delete the PIN account by calling RIM or anyone that work on RIM to delete the account? (not for free of course)...

is there actually a service available to delete PIN? since there is a lot of services arround to unlock the device

because it would be a stressful thing to do since we do not know who is the previous owner of the blackberry that we all have in hand... and don't know which provider that the PIN is registered with

please kindly share you opinion here...

BR

i dont see PIN release service on their web..

anyone here has an idea how to release PIN that has been suspended or used?

except have to call the service provider because i can not provide the information about previous user or the handheld history itself

is there anyway to get through to RIM support/service? where can i find them? any phone number i can call?

thanks

yeah i already check the service

for releasing pin they ask for CAD$150 = US$150 and the service is now not available ..

i think i would rather keep my old blackberry under the drawer and bought a new one
new 8310 only cost $200 why bother unlock PIN ?

but still looking for away to release PIN from RIM networks :(

don't call me a jerk
i'm just experimenting and find there is a possibility of this could happen to me also all of you here... so i intend to warn you guys not to spread imei and esn all over forums, and for RIM please try to make it easy for us to release PIN
i'm going to release it anyway, but i want it instant, because i try calling the operator and no result, they kept me waiting for weeks

so guys any advice?

You are experimenting with someone else's personal information. Call it warning us all you want but what you are doing is the same as the rest of the jerks out their stealing peoples personal info and id. What you are doing can result in undue hassle and even negative financial impact. Again I say...You should feel bad.

It is pretty straight forward to release a PIN. I am deleting your how to defraud the system post. I do find it pretty bad you would step to that level to release a PIN.

I am closing this thread. PM me with any questions.
