Exclamation unlock sprint phone not allowing blackberry service to activate on another network

Please Login to Remove!

bought a phone from amazon it was an unlock sprint phone by the way i am not in the US and i am the Caribbean the phone is working well i use the sim card here and it makes calls etc. but i am not getting the blackberry service on the tour, i called my service provider and they keep giving me turn arounds telling me that they technicians need to upgrade something pertaining to the phone was wondering is there something that sprint has locked on the phone or whatever that is blocking my service by the way we have plenty phones here imported from the US under the US carriers that works down here

FYI: when i register it tells me sorry process cannot be completed try again later

any suggestions because i am gettin mad and fed up :S

Then all you have is voice and SMS....
To get e-mail, web browsing, Facebook, etc. you must have a BlackBerry Data Plan.

Let's start at the beginning. You have a prepaid SIM card. Have you called your carrier to see if they can add a BlackBerry Data Plan to the account?

And we understand perfectly.
