I have an unlocked BlackBerry and mine works, so it must be something else. Have you tried adding by using the email address?

No. All removing the subsidy lock does is allow you to use other carriers' SIM's.

Check for an IT policy. Can she send/receive PIN messages?

She cannot send PIN invites. She can receive PIN request but gets this message no permissions or something i will have to check the specific message again.

Did she as well?

If you go to Options > Security Options > General Settings and scroll to the bottom, what does it show under Services?

Before you do that, I would check what shows under Services on her device to see if she has an IT Policy her device since it was used.
