You need to call the person who sold you the device and have him/her delete their BIS account. That will release the PIN so you can set up your account.
The other problem that you have is that you probably don't have the proper service books. I don't know if Bell supports the 9500 series or not. Once you get BIS access and add the IMEI and PIN, send the service books. That might help. Otherwise, see the yellow sticky at the top of the 9500 section. There is a note there on activating a 9530 on ATT and TMO. That should help.
Im new to this site, sorry i did not use the search. I had found a very similar subject, but it was closed. :S
I will contact the person the sold me the BB as he is my Supervisor.
He had/has a BES account but now with the Storm 2, would that make a difference?
Bell does has both the 9530 AND the 9550. Same as verizon.
Thanks again for the info!
