    Default Bold 9780 Vendor ID -1 ???

    Hi,

    Just checked the vendor ID on my Bold 9780 and it appears as -1

    I assume it must be some kind of RIM ID - anyone know?

    Regards

    I have never seen a negative vendor ID My guess would be it's a carrier/SIM free device. When it boots up, is there a carrier splash screen? Is there any carrier branding on the device?

    Maybe Phill_UK would know something. I wonder if he still checks the 9780 forums...

    Vendor ID -1 is HH EU... a RIM Handheld Evaluation Unit.

    Sooo, I'm guessing this is one of those "should not be out in the wild" units?

    No carrier branding or logos. Handheld Evaluation? Who would this be issued to?

    Evaluation (or engineering) units were supplied to carriers for testing, prior to launch of the final consumer units.
