| | Setting up a used BB with internet email, not BES
Please Login to Remove!
New here, so have done the searches etc, but cannot fine a reference to my question.
Specifically, I'm about to buy my first BB (either a 7290, or 7730), used. I intend to use the personal email service rather than a BES, and my understandin g is that this is bascially a service run by RIM, but repackaged by my local carrier.
Looking at my carrier (Vodaphone australia), I can see that I can create a BB account as long as I have the PIN and IMEI of the device. I assume that this info links back to the BB servers to creat the account. So, what happens if someone else has used the device? Does a new account get created for me, or will I be blocked from using the BB or what?
Comments and clarity much appreciated.
