Talking How much would you pay for the 8700R?

Please Login to Remove!

[font=Comic Sans MS]I have a 8700R I got for free at the Rogers Launch Party and I want to sell it. I don't physically have it yet as it is being shipped to me from Toronto. I should recieve it in a week so please keep that in mind. I am already getting one from my work next week as well so I don't need the other one.

I am just inquiring about how much people are willing to shell out for the device which is out now. Rogers is already selling the device unlocked for about 650 (tax included) but there quickly becoming unavailable.

My questions to all of you is, how badly do u want it and how much are u willing to pay tops..

Thanks

Is this locked to Rogers? Would I be able to use this on the Cingular Network?

Its definately Locked to Rogers. Rogers are freaks when it comes to locking their devices.

I spoke with rim as to when the devices from the launch party are supposed to be shipped out. I was told that they are to go out on the the 28th of this month.

I think all of the Rogers devices are locked to there network. I hear you can call them and ask them to unlock it though cuz technically it's illegal to bind you to particular network when you own the device.

Anyway, the 8700R will definatly be locked to the Rogers network. If I find any unlocking tools I will post it up for you guys.

Rogers has a $250 price tag for unlocking their devices. You're better of using Bongo Wireless at that rate...

I'm lucky I guess I work 10min from Bongo, that being said the GSM Unlocker would be a welcome alternative for others. Love to know how they do it though?

Sorry, my edit might create confusion concerning Finch's post here, which responds to my edited post pre-edit, and which is now a separate thread: http://www.blackberryforums.com/showthread.php?t=19484

My apologies.

Rogers charges $250 for the unlock code. Just to make sure of it I called my brother in law who works for Rogers and also checked w/ my friends roomate who also works for Rogers and both told me it's $250. Not $60.00

No because it's locked. You would have to have it unlocked before you could use a Cingular sim.
