Re: BUYING BLACKBERRY PIN?

I don't believe you can change pins as they are tied to the hardware. Why do you say the pin is not valid?

You will have to contact AT&T to see if they will release your PIN.

If you want to thank someone for their comment, do so by clicking the Thumbs Up icon.

Re: BUYING BLACKBERRY PIN?

as krypto mentioned ATT has to release the PIN, another term is UNLOCK the PIN

then the PIN can used on other carriers than ATT

Re: BUYING BLACKBERRY PIN?

Manuel, there are two possible reasons.

 

The first: device pin code is locked to another wireless operator. You can call to this operator and ask for unlock code for your device. Either you can buy an unlock code in one of many companies which sell unlock codes for blackberry device.

 

The second: device pin is blocked, because this device was reported as lost. In such cases wireless operators lock the device pin. In this case you need to contact the wireless operator who locked this device and clarify the situation.
