Default Will changing networks on BB Bold affect my original pin?

Please Login to Remove!

I would really appreciate it if any of you could help me out with this slight problem I have. I got the bold on a contract with Orange with the whole BB data package. I've just moved countries and wanted to know if registering with a new network and using the same phone would cause me any problems in terms of the Pin changing or my email account. I have just got it unlocked since it was locked to orange and just wanted to make sure if it was worth taking up a blackberry contract with a new provider using the same phone. I hope this will not change my pin or cause me any problems. Please help I'm Desperate!

Your PIN will not change. You will need to unregister the device with Orange and then register it with the new carrier. You will also need to setup your email accounts with the new carrier. Other than that, you won't experience any problems at all.

^^ what he said. It's not enough just to remove your email accounts with your old carrier, your BIS account itself must be removed, else you will receive the dreaded "your device is already registered" message when trying to setup email forwarding with your new carrier.
