    Sounds like maybe girlfriend's Dad needs to contact cousin and get the PIN. Sounds like a loose trail. The original owner would need to either provide the PIN to you or call the carrier and release it.

    Do you mean a password to use the phone or the actual BB PIN?

    Did your girlfriends dad have the device active on his account??

    If so, he would need to ask Orange to release the PIN so a new BIS account can be set up on it.

    I think there is a lot of confusion in this thread. Are you talking about the unique PIN to your BlackBerry? Or are you talking about a code to unlock the phone's screen after it has been idle?

    Its got to be just what jared is saying, what other code could Orange want than the one for the cousins account in order to remove it and free it up to be re-registered.

    Your going to need your cousin to do this, you don't have access to his account
