Re: register pin & imei

You will need to get the previous owner or yourself to call AT&T (formerly Cingular) to release the PIN and IMEI from their database.

 

Often carriers might not release the PIN and IMEI, if the previous user left a balance due on their account, or the device had been reported lost or stolen.

Re: register pin & imei

You think it was new, it might not have been.

 

Regardless, your only hope is to call AT&T again, and explain what you need.
