    I just noticed in my messages on my pearl that it says "Your handheld has been registered with the wireless network" MARCH 1, 2006.

    I bought this phone June 3rd!!!

    I think I was sold a used phone, or one that someone else brought back and didn't like. I think this is why I haven't been able to get onto Blackberry Service Internet. THE PHONE ISNT REGISTERED TO ME!

    i don't think the pearl was out in March, 2006. (?) are you sure that your date just wasn't set when it registered with the network for you?

    That might possibly be the day the phone was made and first tested.

    Ever notice when you get a new BB the time is not set properly to the hour or day? I bet the time was not set properly.

    Yeah, that was my guess. You have the option when you first turn it on to set it, but if you bypass that, any messages coming in won't be the right date/time.

    Hmm I never had an option to set the time when I bought my pearl. :/ my time was also all messed up, I had no doubt I had a new phone though. Only thing that really pissed me off is that the text messages I had saved on my sim will also say the wrong time now (whatever the time the BB was set when you turned it on).

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I always get the popup that asks if I want to edit the date and time whenever I get a new BB, or sometimes when I wipe, reload or upgrade my OS.
