    So I bought a Storm about 3 weeks ago, without the original receipt, off eBay. ESN is clean, I've been using it all this time without a hitch. LOVE the phone! LOVE LOVE LOVE it, especially on .122

    Here's the question though. How would I register it to "me" at RIM? Or do I go to my carrier and register it there (Bell Mobility). It's a Bell branded phone.

    The reason for eBay is to not be locked into a contract. I like my plan, but just got out of a 3 year contract, and don't want to be chained to another one.

    So, how do I register myself with whoever needs to know, as the owner of my particular Storm?

    Thanks, folks, for any hints and tips on this one.

    You mean register it so you could exercise a warranty? I'm not sure if you CAN do that with an ebay phone which EVEN if it was NIB (New In Box), is still probably considered a used phone. You could try asking that question in Other North American Carriers section of the Forum and a Bell rep may answer. And maybe a RIM rep will see it here and answer. They DO check out the Forum.

    BTW Are you a Bulls fan? I'm a bit of a hockey nut and I saw them on TV at the Memorial Cup and i LOVED their jerseys.

    I've posted this on Bell's own forums, but good call on the "Other NA carriers section here". Never even thought of that!

    I know this phone was only activated in Feb, so it's fairly new. The protective film was still on it.

    As for the Bulls, I'm not really a Hockey fan, but I do kind of follow them, especially now that they're in playoffs. They do have great jerseys, don't they
