    I picked up a used Q10. I'm trying to switch the BlackBerry ID over to my information.
    I went to settings -> BlackBerry ID then I replaced the old owners information with my own.
    The next step was to confirm this action by entering the password for the former owners BBID. I did this.
    Then during the next step, I received an error saying "This username is already in use. Enter a different username."...meaning there is a problem with my email address that i'm trying to sign in with.

    My BBID is currently signed in on my Passport, and on my Classic, since I use both. Is 3 devices too many?

    Did you wipe the phone first? In Order to set up the phone as new you need to wipe the phone

    I did use an autoloader to wipe it.
    But maybe i'll try the security wipe too.

    Thanks

    Hello before you wipe a BB10 device make sure you have disabled BBprotect which can only be disabled with previous BBM id and password.
