There is nothing you can do to overcome that.

Sorry.

 

You can always try a different SIM card, however.

Re: blackberry classic

Ok so are you saying either it's never going to work or change sim card, like maybe not the one that the old user used, what if I buy a damaged one and changed something inside to make my nice one work? Thankz

Re: blackberry classic

If it has been reported lost or stolen, you're stuck. I don't know if you know that for sure.

 

If you don't know that as a fact, try a different working SIM card.

Re: blackberry classic

Yes reported at stolen? But strange a year after I bought it and was in use, surely there must be something I can do, to reverse, police? Network providers, I have his email and name etc although not on ebay,but email still active as messages not bouncing back?

Re: blackberry classic

Sure, you can try doing all those things.

 

Good luck.
