I'm sure you are right! But my point is that I do not want to do that... I want to use my phone in its full functionality and not be bound by "workarounds". App store is there to be used, not to be avoided.
If this is the case, I'll sell my phone and steer away from BB.
Hope it makes sense.... Why settle for less than what you bargained for? Unacceptable in my book!

I've had the same problem with the Torch 9810. However, you CAN still backup the device (switch it on but DON'T put your device password in, connect via USB to your computer and backup everything from there; do that before you get the BB ID screen).
That way luckily I only lost some word substitution which didn't back up. It took a long time and I panicked that I'd have to start from square 1.

I guess all phones with OS 7 have the same problem. The rule is Keep your devices backed up regularly, you never know when you may need to wipe them. I am now backing up my OS7 devices daily !

That would be fine if you have data services active on your prepaid card. What happens if you do not have the Data services active as yet and were planning to do so on landing in the new country ?

Last night I travelled from Dubai UAE to Mumbai India. On landing at Mumbai airport same problem, the tel asked for BB password. I tried calling 112 and 911 , the phone went into Emergency Dialling mode and when I disconnected, there was no change, the problem persisited. Probably the Emergency numbers service is not active in India, however since I had already entered the email ID , I had no option but to reach home and wipe the device.
