    Blackberry on PagePlus

    I recently bought myself a refurbished Verizon Blackberry World Edition 8830 from ebay.
    I called PagePlus to transfer my line to it and as soon as i called *22890 it downloaded service books and all BIS were working, browser, push email, all apps and Blackberry messenger.
    All of a sudden just a few days ago it all stopped working.
    I have tried different things to get it working again but i can't seem to fix the service books.
    I went to https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=vzw&locale=en to try and get service books again but it tells me there is a problem with my pin.
    I tried calling *22890 again to reprogram my phone but to no avail.
    Does anyone know how to get all BIS working again?
    As of now I am able to access the internet by using Opera mini but I want to use BBM again, and also you cannot download any apps on Opera nor can you watch any YouTube videos! if anyone knows how to get YouTube videos working with BIS and only Opera mini please let me know!

    Thanks

    Page Plus doesn't offer BIS. If they did, you'd be paying for it.

    BIS is not available on PP & with 20mb of Data YouTube (or any internet video content) isn't a smart choice on PP.

    PP is Great for Talk, Text
    PP is Good for Text Emails, Text/Mobile Web
    PP is Bad for Multimedia Internet, VoIP, Large Images, BlackBerry

    as ultimo said, page plus doesnt offer BIS. Or you probably used all 20 mb. There's a thread where some folks hacked into blackberry phones and made it work with pageplus including all features. Check that out.

    It is INAPPROPRIATE to post this in the main forum, especially since it is a duplicate post of your earlier post in the Blackberry thread in the sub-forum.

    Please do not SPAM the boards with newbie duplicate posts - it is getting really messy in here even without that problem.
