    One of my good friends gave me his Curve 8300.

    Everything is working great except the very first owner of this phone had his email set up and i'm getting his emails in my message box.

    It says "An account already exists for this pin, Please try again"

    Then, after pressing ok, it brings me to the Pin and IMEI input screen, but when I put the numbers from the back of the phone in, it says they are incorrect.

    So, am I in a big mess here? I could live without my email set up, but is there a way to stop his from coming in?

    Please help, cause I'm sure there is probably sensitive info coming through on these emails and while I wouldn't mess with it, someone else that got a hold of my phone might.

    Thanks guys.

    Also, what's a list of all the best free applications?

    I'm looking for a free and decent IM app and an RSS reader. Possibly a E-Book reader too.

    Welcome to the crackberry.com family...

    You need to tell you friend to remove the PIN off the BIS website and also to update his IMEI for his new phone through AT&T.

    Also to delete his emails, you can go to Options --> Advanced Options --> Service Book --> Delete his email account

    Welcome to the crack, couldn't you do a complete wipe of it and setup everything like it was brand new?

    Thanks for the help, I sent him an email to go ahead and do this. One problem though. I read before posting that option to delete the email account in the service book, so that's what I did but I'm still getting his emails sent to me. I'm guessing it has something to do with PUSH?

    Thanks

    Yes, he probably has the pin setup through bis to do this.

    I guess the waiting game begins.
