Default Unknown Service Provider

Please Login to Remove!

I just got the BB Bold delivered to my house, I bought it from ebay (yh i know), the phone looks good, it is a sim free phone, but i cannot register it to any of the service providers, all of them tell me is registered to another service provider.

Anyone know what I could do?

Thanks for any help

Welcome to BB Forums.
Contact the seller and tell them to delete their account, releasing the BlackBerry so that you can register it.

Good luck!
