Question Releasing PIN on an unlocked Cingular Blackberry 8100 on a Rogers plan

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a blackberry 8100 off of ebay ( ) and it was on the Cingular network. I'm on the Rogers network.
My problem is that I can't set up my e-mail on my pearl. It keeps saying that there's already an account associated with the phone.
I've called Rogers and they said that I need to contact the previous owner and get them to call AT&T/ Cingular and get them to "release the PIN". I've contacted the ebay "store" that I bought the phone from but they haven't responded back.

What should I do next? Any ideas? Can I do something else to get my e-mail to work?

Your choices:
1) Call ATT yourself and explain your purchased the device used and need teh PIN released.

2) You can return the device to your eBay seller as unusable (because it is just that) and get your money back.

good luck.
