Yes, but from your 1st post to now, it has been just about that. I will shoot an email as well for you, but Sith_Apprentice probably has better contact.. They are great, and are very personal in their contact.


you can also shoot a PM to ShapelessBB, Steve can help you out..

Thanks guys...the phone is unlocked now. Since it's a Cingular phone, will I have any trouble when I sign up with T-mob BB email?

No, you shouldn't have any problem... TMo doesn't care as long as it is unlocked.
