FS Blackberry 8900 £140.00

I have a BB 8900 Curve for sale, I have had it for 1 week but I don't like it, for me its not user friendly.

Its the phone only, in mint condition (pretty much brand new) and still has the screen protector on it.

It comes with the matching bb leather pouch and the charger with u.s adaptor and the data cable.

The phone is unlocked to all networks, previously was T-mobile.

The only bad thing is I don't have a box.

Pictures being uploaded now...
Shipping/Payment:
B/T only

I will send it royal mail first class, postage will be included in the price.

Or pick up from middlesex, london can be arranged.

Is the pin released?

Do you mean the bb pin? If so yes, I have added my brother who lives in my house and my mate, neither of them have ever sent me a message lol, so can be deleted...

just to check for others, just because you have never received messages on the BB does not mean it is pin released

if you have had teh phone on a blackberry contract or used any blackberry email / internet sevice then the pin is in use

Best to call whoever you have the phone contract / sim with and check

a BB that is not pin released is no use to anyone else and it cannot be pin released by anyone else but the original owner

you just need to give them the pin number of teh BB which is found in options / status menu and they can confirm that the PIN has been released.

This will deffo make it easier to sell

Ok so I spoke to t-mobile phone tech, he said whoever I sell the phone too...they can go back to their service provider and have my details removed but the pin number will be the same.

yes and no !

yes the pin is teh same - it is unique to the phone - you can get the PIN by clicking options then status then you can read the 8 alpha-numeric PIN

but no the new owner cannot clear your personal details - that is wrong. The PIN is linked to your t-mobile account number / sim card and this link must be disabled / relased by T-Mobile only with your permission - nobody else can do that. All part of the BB security system.

hope this makes sense

TBH mate you reallt do need to get this sorted and confirmed here before you sell.

No serious BB user will touch a non PIN relesed BB -ts like having a laptop and bo internet connection !

Elitom i believe you are slightly mis informed with the new blackberry pin release system, i recently purchased a blackberry bold 9000 off here, the pin did not need to be released before sale as when you insert a new sim with BIS (Blackberry internet service) on it, the phone will automatically reregister itself with your sim and bbm and internet service should work fine, i had one not realeased and its all sorted itself out ok

i think this is why HPC is being told by is being told by T-mobile once someone else gets the phone it becomes the issue with there provider, i can link you to a site where i was reading about such things if you wish but as the bold 9000 worked this way im sure this phone of a similar if not newer age would wokr the same,

buyer just needs a sim or contract with BIS and it should be fine!

i would however reccomend you remove all your current contact details on the handset and could fully reset it

EDIT: though not intended im sure some potential buyers maybe put off by what Elitom has written so you can always contact a mod to get them deleted :D

I beg to differ but also I am willing to be proved wrong.

maybe other members here or a mod can clarify if BB have relaxed their stance on PIN ownership / releasing but also jusy checked a couple of forums and got this info

I would suggest that mods do not just delete my comments and that any person who is not familiar with blackberries first visit crackberry.com forums and make sure that what joeprosho is saying is in fact true.

We don't know the technicalities of every product listed here. It's up to the seller to ensure an accurate description on the item being sold and being fully accountable should this not be the case.

yes its understandable considering i dont exaclty what is true myself, i bought my bold 9000 off "Merrick" on here and i believe the device had just been reset, he told me he had not released the pin but did not need to for the reasons i have outlined, i was slightly dubious myself but i unlocked the handset myself when i recieved it as it was only on 3, and upon placing my o2 pay and go sim in it which has the blackberry bolt on everything registered absolutely fine can BBM and Email away

i would have thought the same would have been applicable for these two hansets that were released around the same time though this is merely speculation, he might not want to be pestered but i will contact merrick with regards to this thread to see if he can clarify anything further

my information regarding my handset was from this vodaphone administrator person...

Hi Zach,

This is a strange one as the advised you have been given is correct, basically once a new SIM with BIS active on it is entered into the device it should automatically unregister the PIN from the blackberry server and register this again through the new SIM/BIS account.

Can i ask if you are getting any o2 signal on the device? if not then it could still be locked to the Vodafone UK network.

In either case you will need to get the old owner to contact us to make sure for definate that the PIN is copmpletly unregistered and the IMEI is not blacklisted and the device is unlocked.

They can either call us to do this or if they register with the eForum and post on the eForum we can look into this for them.

i found this at http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/topic/64758-bis-i-cant-register-with-my-sim-despite-the-pin-being-deregistered/
#19
re reading kind of makes me thinkwere both right in a funny sort of way as the staff giving advice in that thread also ask to make sure the pin is fully unregistered with a network, but then they all so say once a new BIS sim goes in it should un and re register itself...

Edit: just want to apologise for some of my wording earlier where i refered to a new blackberry pin release system or sumthing.. its not like theyve brought out a whole new way to do it or anything which i made it sound like they had

Thanks for the info guys.

I spoke to t-mobile again and they told me the same thing. The buyer can transfer the bb pin to themselves.

When I set this phone up, I didnt sign up to bb mail if that helps. All I did was put my sim in, turn the phone on and did the basic set up.

I will reset the phone when I sell the phone.

Now can I sell the phone? X)
