    Give them a call and see if they can have BB tech support do it. Or you could always cancel you BB plan wait 30 days and then activate it again.

    I think going through your carrier is the only way to get this done. I use Cingular, and I do not even recall setting up my user name. But I must have at some point.

    You need to call your carrier's Blackberry support unless you have a spare/dead device that you can transfer the old blackberry.net address to. Then you can create a new one and tie it to your PIN and IMEI.

    T-mobile users can choose their userid.

    I think on verizon you can choose your own name. See if you can create a NEW @vzw.blackberry.net address on the verizon blackberry site.

    I just did this with my 7100i. I was getting hammered with spam, which was quite frustrating! All I had to do was call Nextel, and ask them to delete my current BIS account, and I was able to recreate my BIS, just like I did when I started. The only draw back, is you lose any email saved on your Webclient. Be sure to forward anything you want or need saved elsewhere before to delete the acccout. Hope this helps!

    I tried to reactivate an old BB email address I had and the customer rep told me that the address was taken. I told her it was my old address and that I wanted to reactivate it. She told me I had to change one character in the address to activate it. I have a 7105t from T-Mobile.

    The address I want to use is tied to my 7100t and I want to use it with my 7105t.

    I just logged into my My T-Mobile account and they have the account set up so I can switch my email to my old BB from the new one. Is this right or do I have to call tmobile for help?

    You should be able to go to the Tmo site, there should be an option to change the handheld associated with that account. Once you do that you would need to create a new account for the 7100 if you still using it.
