    I have just bought BB Bold 9900 and trying to create Blackberry ID. But I need to enter screen name and the previous owner doesn't want to tell me it. He is saying I can create it without it. But I don't see any other way. Can anyone help me?

    You should be able to create your own screen name no?

    Do a factory reset or a full device wipe.
    The set up the BBID. Might even want to install the latest OS for the device.

    But the previous owner must be stupid not to wipe the device or at least a factory reset.

    I understand that person doesn't want to tell it as he clearly didn't wipe the device clean and you can access everything he has ever done with his id. You can see which apps he installed/deleted, maybe even receive his email again. You have to make your own id, but first install a new os or at least wipe it clean, or it won't accept a new id login.
