    Someone posted about this too. The PIN is not working. Also, I feel like whoever is running that account got it from someone else and running scams, if that makes sense.

    No he's not a scammer. I actually know the guy who he buys from sometimes. He just charges way too much.

    Well the problem is, any device you get isnt supposed to be sold. In theory it could be considered stolen property. The PIN being blocked will kill any data from RIM to the device (carrier data would be fine).

    Additionally most prerelease devices get their PINs blocked at the end of testing and release of the device, ESPECIALLY when RIM finds out it made it in to the "wild"

    I just wish RIM would willingly put out early a couple of phones... with a crazy price if they want to, and that way we would get to test them and to keep them! This is nuts! I have to buy the same phone 2?!!!?!?! Thank god I haven't gotten any of my pre releases blocked, but if they do I'm gonna cry

    Sorry, but it's not true. I've four pre-released devices (different models). All are working fine.
    PINs will be blocked per request.
    Only depend. Batch of 9020's got out and have been listed and no work. but mostly unless reported stolen pins stay good.

    As I wrote, PINs will be blocked only per Request.
    Gimme a list with stolen and still working PINs, will forward to the right person - blocking
    No needs, I can send myself.

    I stand corrected. Still trying to get in to the testing ranks myself. Perhaps some day RIM or VZW will show me love, but I'm not holding my breath.
