- - Used PIN
|gatekeep ||12-02-2007 10:03 PM |
Hi, I recently purchased a used BB Pearl 8100, while the phone is great, I cannot use BIS apparently because the PIN on the phone is already in use. Is there anyway to have either my carrier (in this case AT&T) or Blackberry remove the current registration on the PIN so I can use it?

You have to contact the original owner and have him get his old carrier to release the PIN. You can try to work with AT&T yourself but they're pretty resistant to that.

Easiest way is to contact the original owner! Otherwise contact ATT and ask to speak directly to the blackberry support they can free the PIN for you to use

Ah, I see. The main reason I even bothered posting, was because, I do not have the original owner's contact information, apparently, neither does the person I bought the phone second hand from.
Out of curiosity, is the PIN totally needed to access BIS through my carrier? For instance, if I were to get the BB Data Access tacked onto my current plan, would I be able to use it or would I be wasting my money w/o being able to use the PIN?

You will be wasting your time without having the PIN released, no push email which is the heart of a BB. You need to call ATT as recommeded above.
Good luck--and welcome to the BForums.
