Default Bought a used 8700r and its asking for pin

Please Login to Remove!

HI, i've bought a used 8700r no battery and no charger, but it didn't look like a scam, now that i've got a battery the phone is asking for a pin, is there a way to solve that problem? the phone was really cheap but it still would be a shame just to throw it out.

Type the password wrong ten times (follow the prompts) and it will wipe out the BlackBerry and allow you to use it.
