This is a common problem with buying a used BB.
You need to contact the previous owner and have them delete their BIS account which will release the IMEI and PIN so you can set up your BIS email. Just canceling the phone service witht he carrier won't do it, BIS needs to be canceled as well.
If the seller won't do it, your carrier might, but they are sometime hesitant as the device could be lost or stolen.
Your last resort is to try to get RIM fix the problem.
