    The major issue is that it is not water/liquid damaged. Additionally, hopefully this someone you know is reliable.

    Also, make sure the Bold will be compatible with your carriers network.

    You should be gold then. If it's a 9700, make sure you upgrade to the latest OS.

    also, make sure your buddy releases the pin# for you from his account.

    well basically its so when you activate the bb in your name & data plan, you can create an account on BLACKBERRY INTERNET SERVER(access link from desk/laptop only) to receive your emails-your pin# gets linked to your account, and if he had an email account & doesn't release the pin, you could wind up getting his emails. So just have him call T-Mo & have the rep "release the pin" from his account.
