    Do you have a blackberr id? I think you got the email because you might not have a blackberry id. If I'm wrong please correct me.

    What makes you think it's a scam?

    I got the same email after several SIM card swaps between my 9790 and 9900.

    I followed the link and it's totally legitimate.

    It's legit. I think it's RIM's way of linking all your emails to your BBID, making it easier to have many devices.

    I know it's legit because I spent all wednesday evening downgrading and installing different OSes to find a solution for a problem... Every time a new OS, the same donotreply email showed up. No way a scammer can tell every time a NEW OS was loaded on to send the same email. :P

    I was assuming that's how it worked Which OS are you using? I'm scared to install the 7.1 in fears of wrecking my phone.

    I got this email on the 10th because I was downgrading the OS, and then noticed my apps were not refreshing. I couldn't even log on to App World by PC, kept getting the logging out and account screen after being able to log in. I had screwed up my phone pretty much doing all of this, then upgraded back to .205 and apps were able to refresh.

    Legit or not, I am paranoid and have a habit of never clicking on a link supplied in an email if I don't have to. I manually type in the url in a web browser whenever possible just in case the link leads somewhere other than what it says.

    That said, the OP's email apparently is a legitimate one.
