Geez. I came here looking for an answer to just this question. I am trying to help out a friend that has the same issue, bought a Bold off of Ebay. TGhe phone is great, but there is a
associated with this device. I wiped the handheld 3 times and the silly account keeps coming back.
I did that one time, sold an old Blackberry but ddn't cancel my account. The lady that bought it from me emailed me, I cancelled the account right away, apologized profusely and she was fine. The problem is, for my friend, that the person is spanish and no one i know, knows spanish.
I'll tell him to go to a corporate store and see if tehy can help.
