    I called RIM and they told me that the PIN and IMEI I provided to them did not exist. Does that mean I will have problems registering for Blackberry Email service? What does that exactly mean if the PIN and IMEI does not exist?

    Sounds like a counterfeit device. Where did you get it from?

    but its pretty authentic. I compared it to my cousin's curve and there's nothing fake about it.

    To answer your question: if RIM doesn't recognize it, no carrier will be able to activate it.

    I asked one lady from RIM and she said they didn't make it. Then I asked another lady and she said it just means the phone's not registered with Blackberry

    OK, maybe contact the people you bought it from then?

    I contacted the guy I bought it from and he said that he receives the phones from all over the world.

    Your only recourse is the retailer, he is selling counterfeit or illegally modified phones.

    No, it is useless. Get a refund, you know better then to deal with this vendor in future.

    Does anyone suggest a site that sells the blackberry curve 8320? I don't wanna pay more than 330 if possible. But obviously I want an authentic one.

    If you buy one from a carrier, you can be sure of getting the real thing, with a warranty. Any other source is risking the same thing.

    Craigslist. Before you pay, get the ESN and call the carrier and make sure it's clean.

    This wouldve been my suggestion as well. I've had dealings with them before and have always been satisfied.

    I need an unlocked one. I travel a lot. I just looked at the guy's return policy and it says 30% restocking fee. What should I do? He sold me a fake blackberry can I get him on that?

    Your safest bet is through a reputable company. Either get it through the Carrier or unlocked and unbranded through Horizon Wireless.
    Blackberry 8320 Curve w/ Wifi [BB-8320-titanium] - CAD$432.00 : HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center

    A little more than you were looking to pay but better than the fake or stoeln one you have.

    Hello!! Restocking fee on a FAKE?? Tell him to send your money back or you are calling the cops. Then after you get your money....CALL THE COPS!! If it was purchased on a CCard, file a dispute with your bank.
