How to use a new BBID on an old BB


I recently switched from a BB to an xperia and so have been unable to use the bbm on the blackberry. I was wondering if it is possible to sign in with a new email and get a different BBID.

The problem is that whenever i click the bbm icon, all i see is a note saying my email address is associated with another device and i can either switch back or cancel the process. There's no provision for a fresh start.

Please advice how i can handle this,
