So, let’s get started!
Step 1: From the main menu, press [#][#] and then your six-digit Lock Code. If you do not have your Lock Code, you can contact Bell Mobility customer service by phone at 1-800-667-0123. Or you can watch our video Activating Your Bell Cell at bell.ca to find out how to get your Lock Code.
Step 2: Press in the track wheel (at the side of the BlackBerry). The CDMA SERVICE PROGRAM EDIT SCREEN will appear.
Step 3: In the Mobile Directory #, go to the end of the existing phone number. Click the [DEL] button to remove the existing number.
Step 4: Enter in your ten-digit cell phone number, including the area code.
Step 5: Scroll to the bottom of the programming screen. Enter your SIP User ID where you see the e-mail address. Enter your SIP User ID in the form firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 6: Enter your SIP PW (password). Your SIP PW is your electronic serial number. This can be found by removing your battery. Please note: The characters for the SIP PW must be in capital letters.
Step 7: Press the track wheel on the side of your BlackBerry to see the menu in the top right corner.
Step 8: Highlight the SAVE option and press in the track wheel to select it. You will see the message WRITE SUCCESSFUL. RESETTING DEVICE appear briefly and then your BlackBerry 7250 will shut down. It will restart on its own.
Step 9: Once the initialization is complete, confirm that the mobile number is correct.
Step 10: Repeat steps 1 and 2 and check that the number shown in the MY NUMBER field is your cell phone number.
And you’re done. You’ve just programmed your BlackBerry 7250 phone for Bell Mobility.
Now that you’ve programmed your phone number, your phone should be ready to use, as long as it has already been activated by Bell. If you have not yet activated your phone, you can have it done in the store or, if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you can watch our video on Activating Your Bell Cell Phone at bell.ca for a complete set of instructions.
