Default Change device PIN ?

Please Login to Remove!

My trusty Pearl died a couple of months ago, and I bought a replacement on eBay.

All my apps and data restored OK, except for my favourite app - BBAlerts - that came with an install code tied to my original BB's device PIN.

All efforts to reach the vendor (Handango) and the BB Alerts developer (Logan?) have been in vain, so my only remaining option is to find a way of (temporarily?) changing the new BB's PIN (and presumable IMEI) to match the old one.

Is this possible ? If so, how ?

If not, does anyone have any other suggestions ?

Think of the security issues if it could be changed on any cell phone.
