But there is probably some sort of game between the people who live on the forums to be the first to blast a poster with a search bomb. thanks.
The reason we ask you do to a search is due to the fact that this question is commonly asked. Making another thread about it just clutters the forum and makes more work for users that are actually searching. They then have more threads to sort through to find their answer.
Not only that, but lots of times doing a search will get you the answer you're looking for quicker than typing up your question and waiting for someone to read/answer it. It is beneficial in more than one way. dc/dc was not being rude, just being helpful. He did answer your question as well.
Not as fast as dc/dc's suggestion, but another way would be to call your carrier and have them release the PIN as well. When buying a device from another user, have them do the same thing.
This may help in that case : http://www.blackberryfaq.com/index.p...Berry_off_eBay
Also, as dc/dc eluded to earlier, give this a read: Forum Etiquette
Also, I don't speak for anyone else on this on this forum but myself. Having said that, the people that "live" on these forums ARE volunteers. Moderates and users alike. We happen to enjoy helping people. The disrespect is not appreciated or welcomed. A little gratitude or maybe a thanks would be nice.
