BlackBerry ID change for a new user

I purchased a new Q10 and got the Rogers unlock code for my old Bold 9900 for my son oi use on his Wind account. i dropped all the data from the old  device, but it is still using my BBID when trying to access BBM (i kept my  BBID for the new device)


How do i go about assigning anew BB ID for my son to use for the old Bold?

Re: BlackBerry ID change for a new user

Wipe the old device with a security wipe. I don't know exactly which OS the phone is running but it should be under Options>Security or Options>Device>Security. Once the phone has been wiped, power it back on. You'll be prompted to sign in with a BlackBerry ID or you can sign up for a new one. He grabs a new one and everybody's happy.

I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy
