    Default AT&T registered phone won't let me use email or create new accounts

    This post was posted by me in other section by mistake

    Hi to all: (I Live in Panama - Central america)

    I bought a BB Bold 9000 from ebay, barely used and came with the unlock code which I used and got the phone unlocked nice,

    I went to my carrier and open a new account for my BB and everything ok till here, got my number, the BB messenger working fine and my data plan as well; butttttttt when i try to use the email wizard setup, I input the PIN and IMEI and it keeps me telling that its already registered!

    i keep receiving mails from 3 different accounts (comcast.net, holmeshouse.com etc) I asume from the previous owner, I did a complete reflash (wiped out all) in my phone and as soon I put the SIM again got the emails coming in;

    I'm not in the USA, but how can I get those mails out of the phone and use my push mails normally, because I can not set up any of my accounts!

    I called ATT&T and they asked for my phone number, but i told them I'm not a att&t user, but i need the phone to be released somehow! and they said they can not help!

    please advice what to do!

    regards,

    Gabriel

    What I suggest doing is backing up your info then do a full master reset, sometimes that works if not Call AT&T & talk to tech support.

    Do what i do.

    Get a friend who has a BIS user name to sign into your Bold. The Bold will ask if to switch PINs/transfer email accounts. Say yes. Then they will sign back into there own BB and you're clear to create an account on your Bold. Good luck.
