    I just noticed that PIN # in status is different than on label under battery for my Blackberry Bold 9000, IMEI number is the same everywhere...

    why? how do I fix this?

    My guess its programmed into the board and cannot be changed. Has it had the midplate changed?

    Unfortunately where I am now, that doesn't work so easily... will BIS work if the numbers are different? Or can I update the software number?

    There is something wonky with your phone, the PIN on the sticker and the one in the firmware should be the same. That's why Motorcycle Mama told you to exchange the phone.

    Does the PIN in status register with RIM? I mean if it works I wouldn't worry too much about it other than if you paid for a new phone but actually got a refurb. As mentioned above, replacing the mid plate changes the numbers. I did that on a Storm I sold awhile back, so I know all about the non matching PIN numbers.

    Or sell it. Some ppl don't mind. It doesn't affect the working of the phone.

    Could have just been a sticker misprint. *shrugs* Does the phone work as far as registering with RIM/internet services/etc? If you bought it at the store and they setup w/o a problem, you should be good to go.
