I'm a newbie on posting.
I recently purchased a BB9700 on Ebay. Unfortunately, I did not come across the "Buying a Blackberry of Ebay" page prior to my purchase.
I'm quite confused about the automatic registration of the PIN/IMEI. I read in a number of posts that when you insert your SIM to a BB, your SIM automatically registers the PIN of your phone to your carrier. The thing is, the seller said she used the BB9700 once. I'm assuming she tried it for a week, didn't get the hang of it, went back to her old BB and decided to sell the new one. I was wondering if this means that the PIN/IMEI has already been registered to her carrier and that she needs to tell them to de-register the phone?
Would it be possible for me to just call the telco and ask them to de-register it for me since we share the same carrier (3)?
Thanks in advance!
