Activating BIS

Hey guys,

 

My friend just got a new blackberry (well it's her moms old one). The Bold 9700 and he struggling a lot Smiley Tongue

He is on a contract where he pays about R89. He gets R100 and 25 free SmS's. Will his BIS activate with his contract or does he need to do it manually like prepaid?

He needs to contact MTN and have the PIN of the device removed from his mother's account (if it is still activated on her account) and have the device PIN/IMEI activated on his account, and make sure he has the BlackBerry data option on his account.

And, have you called your mobile provider (you have listed as "finance" in your profile here?

Never heard of them, what country is "finance" located in?
