    BlackBerry Niagara 9630 BRAND NEW UNLOCKED IN THE BOX - eBay (item 170321766389 end time Apr-18-09 11:55:33 PDT)

    Check this out, you can either pay 1500 dollars or pay 200-500 when it comes out next month maybe. I'd like to see if this guy actually gets 1500 dollars for it.

    from me:
    hello, i live in Etobicoke is pick up an option on this phone? Also CDMA & GSM are different so how can they both work on same network? One more thing, do you have an ESN available so I can verify with Telus that it will work and that it isn't a stolen or lost phone? Sarah

    email from him:
    Hi There I will work with verizon us Only sorry i have to add in discription and ANY GSM LIKE FIDO ROGERS AT&T CINGULAR

    Actually people are paying a lot for the Niagara, a few have sold already. And, those of us that were here already last year remember how many Storms were on ebay and what they sold for. Oofah!

    Wow, that batt cover is UG-LEE! W'sup wit dat?

    Unless you've got sick money to wipe with, you'd be dumb to pay $1,500. Just to try and impress people who won't really be impressed that you blew 3X more than you needed to.

    If this is a prerelease version won't RIM blacklist it? I remember Kevin buying the bold, he didn't get to use it long before they shut it down.

    believe me someone will buy it, just like kevin did when he bought his bold before the release.

    This is only half true. If you're supposed to have the device, it will be fine. Not all pre-release devices are cut. But yes this one would be. I just wanted to make clear that not all pre-release devices are black-listed. And some make it through any way.

    Okay I knew I was missing something. Thanks for clearing that up

    The funniest thing about that listing is that the pictures he has listed are the one that showed up on CrackBerry not too long ago.

    Quite simple. RIM does not lock the devices, the carriers do. If this is a pre release device than it wont have carrier branding and wont be locked.

    It's probably a Verizon test unit, so the CDMA radios are locked to Verizon, BUT the GSM part will work for any GSM network, you just need a SIM. It's probably EDGE only thou like the Storm.
