Hi everyone, I need some help.
- Purchased a BlackBerry Curve 8310 from reputable seller on eBay.
- Called Rogers, informed them of IMEI and PIN and installed my SIM. All fine.
- Cannot register for a new account on Rogers BIS as IMEI and/or PIN are incorrect. It is not. Called Rogers tech support, same problem when they try and register me for BIS Internet and Email on their side. Problem escalated as they can't get it to work don't know much.
- BlackBerry sends and receives phone calls ok. Internet also ok. Able to send PIN messages. I am, unfortunately, unable to receive PIN messages or use BlackBerry Messenger. Oh and the push email is out of the question cause I can't create an account.
I fear the IMEI and PIN are locked on the RIM server side. Why do they do this?? Sheesh.
Ebay seller has offered to give me a totally different, new BlackBerry. I fear this replacement will also be locked and will will be back to step 1, all over again.
Thanks very much.
