hello! errrr help!!
i bought a second hand blackberry 9000 a while ago and have got round to getting it unlocked etc. I did all that and my missus put her tesco sim in and all seemed well. However.... when she went to activate the BBM etc she was told she couldnt because the pin was locked to orange (orange branded phone). When she phoned Orange up to ask for the pin, she was told it needs to be the previous owner who phones up with all the sim card details etc! Obviously we dont have these as we bought it second hand! anyone got any ideas??
ta!

keep a orange sim in it, and use it for 3 months, but make sure sim is registered in your name, and in 3 months put 20 credit on your phone and phone orange they will unlock it and take the 20 of credit, failing that wait for the dr to replie or pm him, am sure he will help you with advice
