You just purchased a BlackBerry. The phone is connected and you can't wait to start using it to access your email, the Internet and to make calls. Before you can access advance features, like email and viewing websites, you need to register the cell phone. It is not difficult to do. You just need access to the Internet and some information about your phone.
Registering Your BlackBerry
Your cell phone's carrier will provide you with their website address where you will create a "New Account" and then enter your BlackBerry's "Device PIN" and "Device IMEI" information so you can register your phone. Registering takes less than 10 minutes. Once the process is complete, you will have access to all of your phone's features. Make sure you have a notepad close by to write down your "Username" and "Password" so you can access the website again. You will also receive an email address with the name of your carrier and a "blackberry.net" ending.
Locating Needed Information About Your BlackBerry
There are several ways to obtain your BlackBerry's PIN and IMEI. The quickest way is to look on the outside of the box your BlackBerry came in. There will be a sticker containing these numbers. The required information for registration is also found on the BlackBerry itself. Turn your cell phone off, turn it over and remove the battery pack. You will then see a sticker with the PIN and IMEI information on it. The PIN and IMEI numbers are also available by navigating through your phone's settings to the "Status" screen. You will want to write these numbers down in your cell phone's manual. Make sure you keep your any documentation and manuals that came with your BlackBerry so you can consult the information in case of problems.
Bookmarking Your Carrier's Website
After you register your BlackBerry, make sure you bookmark your carrier's log-in website so you can quickly sign in to check your account, receive alerts and other information. You may want to bookmark the website on both your home and office computer so you can access information about your BlackBerry from both locations. If you have any problems with your carrier's website, there is usually a "Contact" or "About" page on the website and a telephone number or email address for contacting the carrier.
