    bold pin problem answered by RIM

    Advertisement



    ok my self and many people i know have purchased bolds from ebay.. from international sellers from land near and far. ive had 3 in total. two att branded one un-branded...

    all of the pins are locked. no email no bbm. no blackberry registration.

    i spent 3 hours on the phone going back and fourth between att and rim and back and fourth...

    finally i got on the phone with a down to earth rim rep.. who told me.

    "any bold you buy from anywhere in the world that you try to hook up to any united states
    carrier will block the pin as soon as it tries to register to the blackberry
    network in the usa. He said its in there system its automatic and the only
    thing that can be done because he said they received about 100 calls in the
    last week... Is the pin will be released once the bold itself is released in
    the USA... So basically no email no blackberry messanger untill its
    officially released.... He also went on saying the delay in the us is
    because of the high standards the phone companies have on the os. And he
    said any models sold now don't have the newest os updated release because
    the final one goes out tomorrow monday the 18th. So I'm just going to wait
    it out I guess about 10 people I know who have baught one branded all diff
    names all the pins locked once they tried to connect. Its not permanant.

    Download opera mini for browsing if u keep it. Its 10x faster cause with the
    pin locked when ur on the web it bounces you around through att and rim and
    bonces back sending yo an error message or severly lags... Any other help
    feel free to email...

    so anyone with a bold thats pin isnt working hope this helps..

    You mean unless you are a celebrity? SO, if nothing can be done about it, how do they do something about it for the likes of John Mayer and all the other celebs seen toting this thing around in recent weeks?

    Cause those are directly provisoned by RIM. ATT execs and RIM employees do not have those restrictions.

    that sucks man. to me i think its a little unfair to you guys. I'm still waiting till the end of the year to see exactly what im going to be upgrading my phone to though. I had a BB rep guy come into my store (im a tmo rep). He had a BB Bold on him but he wasn't allowed to show it to us which sucked. i really wanted to just play with it sooooooooo bad.

    Any update on this?

    I just got a BB bold (a retail version in Canada).

    Will AT&T lock the PIN for good, or just temporarily until it's released in the US?

    Does that mean that BIS/BES wouldn't work either? It couldn't function as a phone?

    Or just BB Messenger and Push email?

    just bb messenger and push email wont work. And I think it was mentioned earlier that its only locked until they are released there.
