Default How can I get a new PIN?

Please Login to Remove!

Bought a used one. How can I get a new PIN so that the buddy of the older user won't show up?

Thanks!

The PIN is tied to your hardware and you cannot change it.

Change your device. That's it.

Go down to a local branch of your bank and tell them to reset your pin. ;)

If it is in BlackBerry Messenger just delete the person. Also shoot a note back saying you are the new owner. A PIN is with a device for life.

I wiped the device. However, the prior owner is quite popular and I kept getting messages. Tired of reply to each one telling them it's a new owner.

Are these emails, PIN messages or BBM messages? If it's email you need to get the former owner's BIS account deleted.

PIN. The previous owner is a PIN junkie.
