    I have recently bought a blackberry from a friend and would like to know how i can use the bbm app but with a new pin, is this possible as he wants to keep his old pin?

    many thanks

    nope he can't keep his old pin. when you buy it you have the pin it has.
    each phone > different pin that can't be changed.


    if the phone has been restored will all of his contacts from bbm have been deleted? i.e will his old contacts have me as a friend on bbm?

    You can delete the contacts... actually wiping the phone is the best idea. He can then restore his contacts on a new phone if he has backed them up.

    also i have connected it to my wi-fi and turned roaming data off so i can use the wi-fi but it will not connect and says i need to turn the data roaming etc back on and that uses the gprs or gps or whatever it is rather than my wi-fi, how do i get around this?

    Assuming you have a data plan right? If you have 3g on with wifi the data will be routed through wifi and not use your data.

    Is your pay as you go data plan a BB BIS plan? If not you can not use the BB browser on the phone network just wifi. You can D/L a third party browser like Opera Mini that will use your non BIS data plan when away from your wifi. Or else change your phone data plan to a BIS one.
