Changing Blackberry ID login for my playbook

How do you change your original playbook BB ID account login.  More specifically the login user name. Normally you use an email address but my original email address was my old BB.bell.net address which BB discontinued when their OS 10 system came out. That same .net address was used for my playbook with OS 2.1.0.1753.  I can change my password on this account but there is no avenue to edit the user name.  I present ly own a Z10 so all the old software for our older phones cannot be used. But I still use the older playbook which functions very well, I would just like to access My BB ID account with the playbook as well.

Re: Changing Blackberry ID login for my playbook

Basically, to change the PlayBook login, you must wipe the device and use a new BBID.
