Blacklisted PIN

Is there a way to find out if my PIN is blacklisted?

 

I cannot activate BIS (and check it like that) due to problems with my carrier (not technical stuff, but something about contract terms), I have to wait for this contract to expire in 6 months and than I can activate BIS.

You can ask your mobile provider if your PIN is blacklisted.

Re: Blacklisted PIN

If by any chance it is, is there a way to removing it from blacklist?

Re: Blacklisted PIN

Usually not, since it is likely on the blacklist due to having been reported lost or stolen.

Re: Blacklisted PIN

I bought this phone second-hand. So there is a chance that somebody already used BIS. How can I "clear" pin from his carrier, and have a fresh-new, clean PIN.

Re: Blacklisted PIN

If that's the case, then it is not blacklisted.

 

Just call the previous carrier and ask them to release the PIN.

If the previous owner left a balance due, they may not. But you need to ask them.

Re: Blacklisted PIN

Problem is that I do not know previous owner, I bought it from re-seller. But if he didn't left any unpaid bills, I will just remove all his contacts from BBM and all other stuff and keep using it as mine. Right?

Re: Blacklisted PIN

DO you know for a fact the PIN is still held on the previous owner's mobile provider?

Re: Blacklisted PIN

No, I have no idea, that's why I'm asking.

Re: Blacklisted PIN

OK. So, let's start over.

 

Why do you think you PIN has been blacklisted?
