    It's the same as all the other eBay listings that have been posted in here.

    The seller doesn't have any devices yet... and won't have any until it's released.

    I just saw your Tread and I think you SHOULD NOT buy those on the net because the phone is not officially released yet. I found that some people sold engineering samples on eBay, which can be inferior(sometimes better than the official one) to the official one.

    So, be careful and I would hold on to your money and go get it when it is available officially.

    To add to mss-ca's post about engineering models; their pins are often deactivated once they leave RIM...so no bbm!

    There may be more to that; I've got friends at RIM who have two Blackberries- their work one, which doesn't have bbm, they can only pin each other, and their personal ones. I've never asked, lol.

    there are some people here who have pre-release units that havent been deactivated. i think its only engineering units sold illegally or stolen that get deactivated, not all.

    I remember they sold a couple 9650's on ebay last year. They turned out to be tester devices that got shut off after the real bold came out.

    Agreed. I have bought multiple pre-release units and NEVER had a single one turned off.
