    so i got an 8100 from my brother as my phone crapped out. have my data plan. i wiped the phone, got everything set up. go to set up my email but it says that there is already an email assigned to this pin? so i run the setup wizard, do the email, enter my pin and imei and it says they are incorrect.

    now, i had a bb a few years ago and had this same pop3 mail server set up on it. would that be affecting anything?

    otherwise i just need some help. im a bit lost.

    Nope... Your brother has to go in and get rid of his BIS account before you can start a new one. The other option is he could send you the link to the BIS account and you could edit the existing settings.

    If you are with a different carrier then the former is the step to be taken.

    Your brother will need to release the PIN for the BB so you are able to add your info. The PIN for that BB is associated with his account.
