How Do I Wirelessly Activate My BlackBerry 8330?
Posted by freeappsblackberry on February 10, 2010
If you order your BlackBerry Curve 8330 online to take advantage of instant rebates, or you purchase a used device or one from a third-party retailer, it’s typically not necessary to take it to your carrier’s store for activation. You may be able to complete the process quickly, easily and wirelessly with a phone call.
Things You’ll Need:
- BlackBerry travel charger or USB cable Step 1: Charge the BlackBerry 8330 battery. Insert the battery into the device, then charge via a travel charger or USB cable plugged into your computer.
Step 2: Power on the BlackBerry Curve 8330. Disconnect any cables or chargers.
Step 3: Power off the phone you are switching from, if you have a phone activated on the same number.
Step 4: Call the over-the-air activation number provided by your carrier from the device. For example, Verizon phones are activated by dialing *228 and the Send key from the new phone. Follow the prompts, choosing option 1 to begin programming.
Step 5: Wait until you hear a message saying activation is complete before disconnecting.
