Help! I did something retardedly

Basically i bought a bb torch off a person on gumtree... and it was fully working except it was assigned to his bb id... i thought like a dumbo forget it and its been working for the full two weeks until now... i swapped my vodafone sim for a t mobile sim and when it started the bb id sign in page came up and i cant seem to get rid of it... i know i should have wiped it and used my old bb id but i never Smiley Sad and now all my songs, contacts and data are on the phone and i cant get to them... is there any way i can like back up my stuff from this state? like the bb pins and data? or am i thinking correcty that ive messed up and cant do nothing?
