Re: blackberry ID. HELP!!!!!!!!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


A couple of KBs that you need:

  • KB05099 Steps to take before selling or after buying a previously owned BlackBerry smartphone
  • KB26694 How to change the BlackBerry ID on a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or BlackBerry smartphone

Note that, if you properly complete the Seller and Buyer steps in the first KB (and, btw, you MUST complete those), you will have accomplished what is required by the 2nd KB.


Good luck!
