The PIN is the unique identifier of the device. It can be used to determine if the device is black listed.

No one here can help you with a black listed device. If it was stolen, it should be returned to the rightful owner or the carrier.

If it isn't blacklisted, get it unlocked and you can use it on Fido. They have the Blackberry Connect service with different plans. I currently use an unlocked Rogers 8700r I bought on eBay with Fido. It's been about a year now and its worked flawlessly. Good luck.
