    okay heres my story.....

    i got an At n t blackberry curve 8300 when i was in Cali from my cousin dnt ask me how she got it i think she found it. any way she already had one and so gave me it the one she found so i could use bbm and talk to her when im in scotland as thats were i live. well i got the phone unlocked then i got the o2 simplicity plan which gives me unlimited internet and the blackberry bolt on. they told me to set up the email account on o2 website but it said i couldnt coz the Pin and Imei have been deactivated or suspended. so i called o2 and they said you wont be able to use email but your BBM you should still work. well needless to say i cant use BBM i tried to add my cousins pin and all its says is pending awaiting authorization, and she cant add me either. so i took it to a mobile help shop and the guy said i cant use bbm here coz its an American phone but i didnt think that was the reason why. iv been doing research on the net and alot of people have said are you on a data plan, i think i am coz the guy added everything for blackberry so i could use the BBM. Someone also said i would have to get the origional owner to call up At and T and activate the pin and IMEI so i could set up the email account then it shoudl work but i cant do that coz i nor my cousin knows the origional owner. So question is there a way i can sort this out. All i want is to be able to use BBM i dnt even care about the email. thanks

    If the PIN is deactivated or suspened, this would explain it. BBM uses PIN numbers to comunicate. If the phne was found by your cousin, and reported as lost/stolen by the owner, you might be SOL.
