    How does someone even go about trying to sell this many phones, really? "Uh, yeah, so you wanna put up an ad on eBay for 2000 Torches? Let's say, $50 bucks each or highest bid?" That doesn't sound fishy at all. They would have to ship it over seas. Even that would be difficult to do. How do you do that without looking suspicious? Stupid criminals. Shame on them. Hope the authorities catch them.


    They are sought after phones. I am not a criminal but I could sell all 2700. They sell themselves.

    *Contradiction. If someone offered me a 9810 for $50 I would buy it....so would the majority.

    They are probably going to be sold overseas anyway.

    I feel sorry for the people who will get screwed over since the IMEI or PIN's are blocked. No data.

    I work like a 5 minute drive from there... need to be on the lookout for guys selling at the side of the road :P

    But seriously, this is going to make it tough for people trying to legitimately sell phones online.

    Ironically more stolen BBs = more business for RIM = more profit for RIM?

    thats quite true because it wasnt stolen from RIM. it was stolen from someone that has already bought from RIM.

    Someone would have purchased the device even if it wasn't stolen.

    They are 99% for sure being sent out of country.

    The only way these guys will get caught is if the ports are being watched. No one is stupid enough to sell phones stolen in such a large quantity locally.

    Also a high probability this was an inside job. Not exactly easy to steal 2700 phones in one shot unless you knew how everything at said warehouse worked.

    Insurance is going to cover their losses anyway...so the only one's really hurt by this is the insurance company and the warehouse owners who are going to have to pay higher insurance premiums.

    Well what I suggest is buy a device only from a vendor who is verified and is willing to send you a valid bill of sale. That ways you will be safe from any fraudulent activity.

    Once they find that data is blocked from working, or the police bust them from unknowingly possessing stolen smartphones, either way, we're going to see threads in the 9900/9930 forums asking for help.. Then we'll have to break it to them.
