Is it an 8900 as in your post or a 9800 as in your profile?

What do you mean by evaluation unit - a RIM engineering device perhaps?

And what do you mean by "stopped working"? We need more information.

It was a pre-release phone. It came out before the actual curve was on the market. So yes i think it's a RIM engineering device...

At this moment the BB wont get on, even if I change the battery. All I see is that the led turns red for a second and then it stops again.

If it is a true RIM engineering model, it might have been disabled by RIM. Plus most of those have non-working/disabled/banned PINs which make it useless for anything except phone and SMS.

Thanks for the reply! When I got it everything was enabled including the PIN.

Nevertheless it seems that for now I should get rid of the phone as it is useless...

If it isn't it will be. Engineering units are just that, engineering testing. I am surprised that it worked this long.
