    Blckberry Owners Club

    Advertisement



    Have any of you seen this?

    I tried to join, and it asks for my imei number. however, i have sprint(i guess its a CDMA thing) which uses ESNs. I can't figure out how to get in, since i dont have an imei

    did RIM make a mistake or am i making the classic mistake of forgetting to make sure its plugged in? :P

    Re: Blckberry Owners Club

    I am already a member of it. But I am not sure how to sign up without using an IMEI.

    I played a demo and this might help. Here are 2 ways I was shown to find the IMEI.

    Look at the label under the battery
    Go to Options>Status>IMEI

    I am trying to get in touch with a friend who has a Sprint BB to help.

    Did you try putting in your ESN? Can't hurt to try.

    I signed up to that months ago. Never received any email updates from them yet. And I was just logged in a couple days ago, and there was nothing of importance or interest posted on their "lounge" which cannot be found eslewhere already.

    Re: Blckberry Owners Club

    I tried using my ESN number and it wouldn't work. Looks like it is looking for a 15 digit number and that is exactly the number of IMEI "numbers."

    "Please check your BlackBerry's IMEI number. It should be 15 digits long."

    Re: Blckberry Owners Club

    The BB does not have an imei, it has a DEC and a HEX. Have you tried to put either of those. Also, send them a message and say you are with Sprint and dont have an imei, see what they say.

    Re: Blckberry Owners Club

    THIS JUST IN:

    After a few E-mails back and forth to the BB Owners "Contact Us" E-mail (help@blackberry.net) they verified my ESN number and gave me my IMEI number. Used the number provided to access the owers club and viola...I'm in!

    After comparing the IMEI number to the ESN number on the box, it looks as though you have to add zeros to the beginning of your ESN number to equal the 15 digit IMEI number. For example:

    If your:
    ESN Number is 01234567891

    Then your:
    IMEI Number will be: 000001234567891 (just add the appropriate number of zero's to your ESN to equal 15 characters!!!)

    Re: Blckberry Owners Club

    Thank you UH8ME. We at Sprint have never heard of Sprint CDMA phones having an imei, so this is good to know in the future.
