Talk to your friend. If not, you will need to contact the carrier.

Yes you need to have your friend release the pin form the previous carrier...

Your friend, or your friend's carrier, needs to release the device from the currently assigned BIS account.
Until that happens, you can't assign the device to a new BIS account (yours).

Read the FAQ - Buying a BB from eBay. Even though you didn't buy it there, the same thing applies. Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

Lots of good stuff in the FAQ. Will answer many of your questions. You can also search. Both will save time waiting for a response.
