I would be very careful about buying a blackberry from china.
You may think it looks correct, they may even have an actual picture of a blackberry, but what you may get is a fake. And the trouble of going through a refund process [you may not get back] would always make me prefer to get an actual model, even if the price is slightly higher.

It's a knock-off and will not work with BlackBerry apps that require a BlackBerry data plan. No BBM, no email, etc. It's a fake.

No real BlackBerrys have dual SIM. You bought a fake.

Not only is it a fake, but there is NO support for knockoffs. RIM won't talk to you because you don't have a RIM device. Your carrier will just laugh at you if you show up with it. Can you return it to the eBay seller?

Beware of Chinese Blackberry products. in the case of Blackberry you must not take any sort of risk. instead of buying any made in china product you can wait for sometime to get it available in the stores. you have got the choice to buy this handset from other places as well. make a good choice depending upon your grits.

RIM makes their BlackBerrys in countries other than China.
Just buy a genuine BlackBerry and you will be fine. No dual SIM cards. No TV buttons.
