About a month ago a found on post on PinStack about problems people were having with activating BES after they have received refurbished Blackberry phones. Someone posted a link to a software patch that came from within Blackberry that took care of my problem immediately.

Well, that Blackberry Bold also had an unrelated problem and AT&T gave me another refurbished Bold and I can't activate by BES service. It doesn't get past the first screen.

Can anyone remember where that post is so that I can download the file and get my Bold working?
