Re-Registering a Handset

I have been given a Blackberry 8820 by my Daughter-in-Law, who has Unlocked it.  I cannot use it with my Vodafone account because it needs to be re-registered.  How can I do this , please?

Re: Reregistering a Handset

I think we need more information to help. Do you have a Vodafone SIM card in the device right now? Try going to Options | Advanced Options | Host Routing Table. If you have a bold Vodafone entry in that screen, hit the menu key of it and select Register Now. Even if that screen is empty hit the menu key and select Register Now. That should send a message from Vodafone to the BlackBerry

Re: Re-Registering a Handset

Did you subscribed for BlackBerry data plan? For getting full access to BlackBerry device features you need to have BlackBerry data plan from Vidafone. Having Internet data plan will not make entitle to use all the BlackBerry device features. It communicates through a special APN called blackberry.net.
