Does anybody know how to get it resolved or how to have the PIN released by ATT? I am trying to contact ATT support but want to know if there is any other way to do it? Also I am perplexed as to why would the device work for 25 days and give such trouble all of a sudden?
Any help appreciated.
When you canceled your account in India, did you also cancel your BIS account? That is the most likely problem.
Check the FAQ for an article on buying a used BB from eBay. It should explain the problem a bit better.
