    so someone posted earlier about a Bold for sale on ebay, well i been watching it I ask the guy for the ESN and if he had the receipt. My friend in the states wants a Bold so my husband said it would be a great gift for her 21 b-day next week so i jumped to watch the item. anyway, what would you do? the seller emailed me back and said he would give me the PIN and he didn't have a receipt. It's already at 910.00 so I dont want to buy something that is not gonna be able to activate. Can i go to Rogers and get one as well? because it will be locked! thanks

    Telus is not GSM.... you can't get one from Rogers. You'd need to get something from Bell or another CMAD or whatever it's called network.


    Oh I just clued in that you're not buying it for yourself... lol What network is your friend on?

    I understand that, as I stated it isn't for me it's for my friend who lives in the states for her 21st b-day if it doesnt go wayyyy high. But I was asking if i could get it for her to send to her from Rogers as well if so that would be cheaper! Thanks for looking out though!

    CDMA. to the OP, you COULD get one from rogers at a retail no contract price and its a helluva lot cheaper than the $910 on ebay right now and more legit. Just have it unlocked via a third party.

    HOWEVER! I've heard that RIM blocking is ANY Bold's pins thats being activated on ATT's network in the US since its not out as of yet. So there's a good chance that even if you have a working Bold, the pin will be blocked which means you can only use the phone and sms part. No email, no internet and no BB pin. Just a warning.
