Can I 'Reuse' My BB's IMEI # for T-Mobile Prepaid Service?

i have a t-mobile blackberry bold 9700 that i once used on a t-mobile contract i no longer have. i see to set up prepaid service w/ a t-mobile prepaid starter kit, i need to enter my phone's IMEI # . i believe the IMEI # for my bb has already been used (by me, of course) when i originally purchased it from t-mobile, bc i remember seeing it on my receipt (correct me if i'm wrong). if i want to use my bb, now, as a prepaid phone, will entering the same IMEI # be an issue?

Hello tir1,


Yes, in order to use your device you need to input the correct IMEI information of the device you are using.
