| | Could this be a stolen Blackberry? Req. help
Please Login to Remove!
I was recently using the Motorola i830 when an associate of mine told me he'd sell me his Blackberry 7510 for a low price because he recently upgraded to the 7520 (I think that's the model number. I'm new to this Blackberry stuff, forgive me). He told me all I had to do was pop the sim card out and stick it in the blackberry and I'd be good to go, minus the fact that I'd have to redo my address book. I put it in the Blackberry, which is in outstanding condition, and I can receive and place calls, and receive and initiate Direct Connect sessions. The address book contains no entries as expected, however, I cannot receive any e-mails on it. I went to the Nextel Blackberry webclient and registered the phone and got an e-mail, but when I sent mail to it to test, it did not send. I went to MyNextel and tried to update the registration on my phone, but when I did, I got "PTN and IMEI is invalid." Do I need to call Nextel and transfer something or order anything, or do I need to give the phone to Nextel because it's stolen?
EDIT: He had the box and manual etc. with it, and i've read through them a couple of times now.
