Default Trying to activate BB8320 on AT&T USA

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all: I got an unlocked BB8320 as a gift over the holidays. I have service from AT&T in the US, and I pulled my SIM out of my phone, and put it in the BB8320. Voice and data work well, except that I don't have access to the BB goodies that my other BB friends use (BB Messenger etc).

I assume that even though I have an unlimited data plan on my SIM card, I still have to activate my BB (pin) with AT&T. How do I do this? I tried to do it online to no avail.

I'd really like to get my full BB services working, so I am looking for a bit of guidance here.

Oh, just in case you wonder, I did a search on "activate pin" and "register pin" before posting this question.

Thanks all in advance.

You need a blackberry data plan, not a unlimited generic plan.
