Hi i am a new user, just had a questions, before i buy the unlock code from ebay. I bought this branded BB 8700r from rogesr from this guy who said he found the phone. Obviously i got a good deal from it. Anyways if i pay to get this unlocked.. would i be able to use in Fido ? or use it at all ? would they block off the phone completely? can they do that?

Just one question, what is the PIN for and how will you check?

The PIN is the unique identifier of the device. It can be used to determine if the device is black listed.

hi can you inform as how to find out if the device is blacklisted? and if it is blacklisted then does that mean that the phone is of no use and its garbage??

No one here can help you with a black listed device. If it was stolen, it should be returned to the rightful owner or the carrier.

If it isn't blacklisted, get it unlocked and you can use it on Fido. They have the Blackberry Connect service with different plans. I currently use an unlocked Rogers 8700r I bought on eBay with Fido. It's been about a year now and its worked flawlessly. Good luck.
