    Found a guy on ebay selling playbooks with locked pins. From what i can find RIM chan shut down stolen playbooks. This guy sold a few and has four left. Do you think it was from the stolin shipment? Check out ebay item number 300696675436

    Are you talking about the stolen Canadian shipment? This seller's in California. Not that it's completely implausible he/she could have brought them here, but it would be very difficult to bring over so many hot PBs.

    They could have had sum of the numbers switched. Definitely stay as far away from this deal as you can.

    It was still in the USA when stolen.

    Improperly distributed PlayBooks can be blocked as well. I get the impression that the serial numbers don't become valid in the system until RIM considers them distributed.

    They get blocked from the update servers, so the PlayBooks can't get the initial setup. I think update server access is based upon the serial number rather than the PIN.
