I sold an 8830 World phone to another Verizon customer. I had wiped all data and thought things were fine. BUT I got a call the next day from the buyer and he said he was getting my emails. I had to make 4 calls to Verizon before I found someone who knew what the issue was and how to fix it.
The rep had to have the pin number for the 8830 and also the IC #. Fortunately I had both. It took about 2 minutes and the emails stopped going to the old phone.
Be sure to call your carrier to have the old Blackberry email settings removed BEFORE you sell your phone.
The "wipe" does not and will not remove the settings for your Blackberry. You must have the service provider do it. I am not aware of being able to do it on your account on-line but will check and get back to this Thread
By the way, the new owner received a very sensitive email which I would consider a security breach.
I had this problem when I bought my Bold from a guy...I got my carrier to enable bis on my account but I was getting his emails and texts...luckily I had his number and email so rung him to let him know....seems like that his network hadn't released the pin/device off their network as I couldn't register the device onto my networks BIS service. So the OP does have a point, point being that before u sell your device make sure your carrier removes the device off their systems...I'd say give it at least 48hrs then sell it on.
