Notes
Trade - I am willing to trade this as well. I am looking for an unlocked Bold or Unlocked 8900. I don't think there is an advantage to having a Bold on T-Mobile so a 8900 will work without a problem. I'm pretty open so just let me know and I will work with you. If you have a Bold or 8900 that is not unlocked I'm sure we can work something out. It can be done for less than $20 from many of the forum sponsors.

Condition Notes - The screen has smudges, there are two spots on the back cover which show signs of use and there is one small scratch on the chrome bezel to the left of the lock button. Any imperfection can be associated with use of the phone, storage in my pocket and it has never been dropped. The phone has been on my desk at home, on my desk at work or in my pocket since I have owned it. The screen is perfect (other than needing to be cleaned). I have a work 8330 and can take some pics if the buyer cares about the specifics. The lights in my office are terribly bad so it might be tonight before I can get a decent picture.

ESN Notes - This phone has been unlocked and updated to the latest beta .114 hybrid firmware with the keyboard fix. I am currently using it with T-Mobile. The ESN is NOT clear on this phone. It was purchased used off Craigslist and the previous owner did not deactivate the phone. I will provide the ESN to any interested parties if they wish to contact and verify this with Verizon.

My carrier is listed as Sprint because that is work related. My personal carrier is now T-Mobile. I have noticed some questions about this in other FS/FT threads and wanted to cover it ahead of time.

Would I be able to use this with the T-Mobile network even if the ESN is not clear?
Sorry, I'm not familiar with that term. Still kind of new to the whole BlackBerry/Cell phone world, but I'm picking it up relatively fast.

I had it running on T-Mobile for a while. Didn't have a single issue with it. The ESN would only be for Verizon customers. I bought the phone and the former owner did not deactivate it from their account which is why the ESN is blacklisted. As I mentioned before I can provide the ESN to anyone to verify that the info above is legit.

I forgot how bad the camera is on the 8330. I attempted to take a couple decent shots, but they did not turn out well. They show the wear on the back but not the milimeter scratch on the front chrome piece. I will attempt to get my hands on a better camera...

Have set up BIS on t-mobile? Is this GSM or CDMA phone? Im a bit confused cause I know that Verizon is a GSM provider and as far as I know, ESN numbers are used only by CDMA providers..

Thanks. I just read that the Storm supports both CDMA and GSM technologies. My confusion was about that.
