Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

You need the owner's acct information.
You also need a data plan to access the internet which wasn't clear to me from your post.

Check the FAQ article "Buying a BB off eBay". The article has the info you need.

Basically, you need to have the seller call their carrier and cancel their BIS account. If it was on BES, then you need to remove the IT Policy. You need a BB dataplan also.
