Default 8900 identification help

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all, i'm new here and figured there would surely be experts here to help me. My Son bought me a new Blackberry 8900 overseas and shipped it to me. Its different than others I have seen, and has places for two sim cards. I've been trying to get it unlocked and functioning. I put my sim card in, and it asks for sim 2. Any help? Thanks
