    Hi i bought a blackberry 9790 off ebay. It appears to be unlocked as I can make calls and send texts using the phone. However, the BBM and personal email account, and internet seem to be blocked on 3g. WIFI works. it says something about contacting fido or activating your phone on fido.

    How can i use this phone properly without going to fido. Or will a simple call to fido fix my problem on tech support.

    I am basically using it on AT&T in america.

    Hello and welcome. I could be wrong but I believe you need an account or data plan with the carrier before you can use the other features on your phone.
