    Question New Alltel BB 7250 (unlocked)

    Advertisement



    Just purchased a BB 7250 on ebay which was on the Alltel network. As I am in Canada and subscirbed to the Bell Mobility network I was surprised to learn Bell is not willing to add the ESN to their network. Prior to the request I attempted to download and install the Bell O/S software but failed. I have four questions:

    1) Is it possible to have the ESN on my existing 7750 (slug) moved to the new 7250?

    2) Is there some way to load the Bell software to the 7250?

    3) Is it possible to Unlock the 7250 from the Alltel network?

    4) Do I have any options other than reselling the 7250?

    The ESN is on the device and cannot be switched to another device.

    Both Bell and Telus will NEVER activate a device which they did not sell. Why? I don't know. Protectionist practice I suppose.

    I think you're out of luck on this, and your only option will be to sell.

    If you decide to sell then pin me and we can discuss price. I have a friend stuck on alltel whom would like a BB
