Default Pin/imei suspended or already registered

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

I bought a second hand bold from ebay, and when I tried to sign up for a local blackberry plan, the customer service officer scanned my phone and a message box said something like my pin or imei no. was suspended or already registered.

Is there any way to get around this and get my local plan up?

I tried using my friend's sim card on my blackberry and his blackberry services work on my phone. So is it a problem with my phone?

Kind regards,
William

If the issue is that the PIN is still registered on another account, you'll need to somehow get it canceled. Best case is you can contact the previous owner and have him/her do it. Calling the carrier and pleading your case may work, but likely not.

If the issue is the device has been reported stolen there is likely nothing you will be able to do.

So you can set up an email account for a PIN/IMEI that has been suspended or marked as stolen?

NO !!! You don't understand me exactly, or you don't want to understand me.

I can not create an acount for a suspended device !!!! I can give to this man one acount for free to use it if his device has not been blocked on the bberry network !!!

Now is clear ?

Best wishes.

I love cross cultural communications. So lively yet so ineffectual.

Arrogance has nothing to do with it. We are all interested in how to get that one account for free.

I figured I could probably get a bb data plan but I'll stick with my current plan for now.

How did you resolve the issue with your PIN/IMEI #? It was sounding like the device was reported stolen. Or was it just a case of the PIN still being registered on previous account?

I did not resolve my issue. I left it at that. My plan was to switch to a blackberry plan initially, but because of the PIN/IMEI issue I did not. So now my blackberry's just a regular phone.
