about 1 year ago i bought a blackberry curve 8320 on ebay in germany. I now wanted to register at the BIS (at Vodafone in Germay) it tells me that the phone (PIN) is already registered at the BIS. I tried to use the "send Password" Link with my PIN Number but it didnt work out (The website says the password is sent successfully but it does not reach my cell phone). Aftre that i asked at VOdafone Customer support and they said the phone isnt registered with Vodafone.
Is there a chance to delete or edit the old account registered to my PIN Number?!? So that i can register and get my own BIS?!
Thank you all in advance for the help!

Call Vodafone and ask for RIM support. They can release the account (now they may or may not, but that is another issue). Basically someone else still has this listed as their PIN on their account. Its going to take some doing but you can get this done.

Hi Marc, I'm getting the exact same error you did. How did you get it solved? I sent an e-mail to email@example.com and got the same e-mail answer you have.
I bought a BB Curve 8320 from a friend's friend and I'm not able to use it in Brazil. I also tried to log in with the PIN # and password without success. I don't know what else to do. Can you give me any advice on what to do?
PIN # XXXX
IMEI #: XXXX
