    Hello all

    Names Simon, live in the UK and I am on T-Mobile UK.

    using a HTC Touch at the mo, and its not working out

    Basicly use the the HTC on 10 minute auto check, T-Mobile UK gprs connection, and a hotmail plus account (has pop3) to get my email.

    to say its unreliable in email retreival would be an understatment.

    so I will be asking about T-Mobile UK if I can buy a 2nd hand T-Mobile Pearl off a friend who has upgraded with them, and add the 5 pm 50 meg blackberry data to my plan even though Im only 2 months into my contract?.

    the problem usally is not the phone, its either T-Mobile gprs having a bad few hours, or Hotmail+'s pop3 server throwing a hissy fit.

    looks more and more likely

    the current setup did not pick up the 6 emails I recived in the last 1/2 hour inspite of a 10minute auto check, I had to do a manual sync

    back off holiday so rang T-Mobile UK

    they are happy to sort me out with the BB data plan on a second hand BB


    while I was off sunning myself, my mate sold his spare BB

    So if I buy one now it will be off Ebay.

    and that rises the question that it may already be authorised for someone else off T-Mobile UK's BB server.

    Is that something I can sort out, or would be a long sting of phone call to T-Mobile UK Customer services.

    some Ebay ads say

    The handsets Pin and IMEI have not been registered with the Blackberry service.
    how important is that?

    That is very important... ask the seller specifically if the PIN is unregistered to any carrier network. They often are, or have not been removed from the previous carrier.

    That is good as it will save you the hassle of getting the PIN released from the sellers account & will make your set up a lot easier.

    As j sanders says the pin may be registerd with the carrier (network) so find out that info.

    Is the phone locked to any of the UK networks?

    Took 50 minutes for my HTC to pick up this reply

    Im looking at 3 on Ebay.

    2 know about the PIN and IMEI, one has de-registered his, and the other was never put on.

    the third did not know, and has now been educated.

    99% off BB's in the UK seem to carrier branded and locked.

    Cheers for the info
