Default question about 8830 & PIN

Please Login to Remove!

I have a few customers who have ordered unlock codes for their 8830 's
once they unlock the 8830 how do they get verizon to release their PIN so that when abroad they can use the data functions & bb email?

I know most prepaid sims do not support data but one of my customers has a sim from the UK that is on a regular account. when he goes to the UK and puts the sim in the unlocked 8830 will he be able to configure the BB email or will the pin be tied up with verizon?

Thanks

I'm betting that's one reason to not unlock the 8830 if roaming and use another carrier overseas... It would be a pain if you're on BIS every time you went in or out of the country.

As long as a BIS account wasn't tied to the device it should be fine.
