    As stated above, selling a new Blackberry Odin. I'm not sure whats wrong with this phone, but I cannot load the OS. I've tried every method to load, and it comes back with a 302 : Catastrophic Failure Error. Needless to say, after a few hours of trying, I've given up. Maybe someone else will manage to put an os onto this. I'd let it go for $200. The screen protector is still on, and it was never used.

    PM sent. Also, is this a 9550 or 9520? I'm assuming since it's new the PIN, IMEI & ESN (if it's a 9550) are good-right?

    Lol, the sotware probably can't be loaded. Pre-release phones sometimes can't be.

    Happened to my Bold, I paid $100 and had the motherboard swapped out for a Rogers one.

    If he can't do it and has tried everything, how will it work?

    I think he means that this have may been a tester and may only run the OS they released it with and may not have a loader ability and thats why he cant load anything on there.

    If thats the case, it may not have a pin and ,ay not be able to be activated unless you buy a whole new board.

    Hmm, my old Bold (was running 4.6.0.14 - think about how old that is, lol) couldn't have its OS updated. I got the board swapped out.

    PIN was never blocked though.

    Hmm...how much/how difficult was it to get the board swapped out?

    Took it to a cell shop here. $100 cash installed in 1 day.

    But that was a Bold and they put a Rogers board in it. Might be hard / more expensive to get a Storm2 one 'cause they'll need a Telus or Verizon board, and the phone just came out. Soooo....

    This is still for sale? Part of me wants to buy it simply because I like a challenge.
