Serial number is linked to an old owner?

Have you tried calling PlayBook support?

Hello JSAnders

yes i tried , if you look on the Belgian http://be.blackberry.com/ site it will send you to a phone number 080077980 and it will ask you on which language you want (dutch,french;english) and when i choose the option "problem on playbook" the line is cut...(tried all otpions and line is always cut).

there is no email address or other way than to insert the serial number and theemail address of the old owner...

thanks for your help

yes yes 

and the only way to get through is by giving a ticket number that i have to create using my SN number and i can't because it requests also the email of the old owner which i do not know so i'm stuck ;-)

snif....

thanks

Use your own email , not that of an old owner.

Your own BlackberryID email address

"This email address does not match the registration email address, please try again."
 
As i mentionned my playbook is refurbished so the Serial Number is linked to the old owner of the tablet....

Have you tried to just reload the OS and start all over with the settings, and from there you can input you own BBID

Re: how to get help support when a refurbished playbook SN is linked to old owner.thanks

Hello I can't because i can't recharge it and i do not even get anymore the red or any other color led....

the PB is dead and i'm trying to send it to repair at BB belgium but the only way is via their web site http://be.blackberry.com/customer-service/contact-us.html or phone 800-77-980

but by phone you need to pre-register via the web site for a ticket.

that i cannot do because you need to enter the Serial number and the email but as this is a refurbished it's still liked to the old email adrress owner.

so who can give me an email address for the Belgian Support center of BlackBerry in Belgium.

Thanks
