I understand that Blackberry should make it difficult to use a stolen handset, but why make it impossible for someone purchasing the unit legally through a legitimate channel?
Do you know if the device you bought was stolen from the origional owner? I bought an 87800c off eBay, thought it was legit, and when i went to get it unlocked I was told it was stolen and there's nothing they can do about it.
