Switching from users



I gave my Torch 9860 to cousin, she tried to register the phone with her new protect ID but cant because the device is still registered to me. I have been trying to remove the device from my blackberry protect ID and still will not budge. Is there any way I can make her the new user of the phone and remove my account from the device. Please help

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


There are many more steps to conduct...please treat this as a resale transaction, and follow ALL that this KB instructs:

  • KB05099 Steps to take before selling or after buying a previously owned BlackBerry smartphone

Good luck!
