Default Registering a used blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I purchased a blackberry second hand, and now when i go create an account, it tells me that the PIN and ESN/IMEI are the same as another user's. What can I do to remedy this problem?

I'm trying to contact the original owner, but I don't know if that will be possible. The PIN is 23C83DE6.

It's very simple. The BESwon't allow two accounts to have the same blackebrry registered to them.

So in order to use this, the old owner has to associate a new handheld to his BES account to which he curently has YOUR handheld assigned to (thus removing the previous association automatically) or he/she needs to call his/her carrier to kill the old BIS account, which is a very easy process that tech support will be able to take care of very easily.

the alternative, of course, is to use BES rather than the BIS- this will go around the problem and allow you touse the email services.
