Default Pearl 8130, no IMEI, no SIMS card, what can I do?

Please Login to Remove!

I everyone!

I'm kind of freaked out. I just bought a used "Blackberry Pearl - 8130" from Telus Mobility. Personnaly I'm with Koodo Mobile, wich is a smaller part of Telus. I really tought it would be easy to only transfer the phone by changing the serial number on the website.

The problem is this: They ask me about the serial number, wich doesn't work. Then I told myself I wouldunlock it to be able to use it with Koodo.

Problem number 2: Everywhere they ask me about the IMEI, a code that doesn't exist in my phone. The only code I can have is the ESN wich doesn't work. I tried everything; from the infamous *#6#, to the "status" option....

I'm completely lost...
Since the phone doesn't have a SIMS card I'm really desperate...

Someone to save me? :(

The 8130 is a CDMA device, hence it has only an ESN rather than an IMEI and it doesn't use a SIM.
