I understand your concern jibi... I have a contact there whom I have spoken on and off with throughout the years... I was hopeful he couls check the case numbers and give some feedback...

Perhaps you are correct and it would only add to the confusion but I don't mind trying to act as a disinterested 3rd party in this...

Wow, I am so shocked at the turn of events here I have had nothing but good luck with Corey. He has nothing but positive feedback prior to this. Good luck man I hope you get it sorted out.

Default $300 to unlock a phone?

Rogers charges $499 regular price for the 8900 and on his (Cory) website he's selling it for $800 - the only difference appears to be the fact that it's unlocked

I asked him a question on his website for the price for the phone locked and he hasn't replied yet.... honestly, I don't even understand why anyone would #1-work for those vulture wireless carriers and #2-deal with an ex-employee of those vulture wireless carriers!

I can't wait until you can buy devices direct from RIM... it's bound to happen soon and then the carriers can go ef themselves

There is always a price for purchasing an unlocked device. Are you sure that it is only unlocked, and not an unbranded device, as you would purchase from RIM?

There is not "always" a price for purchasing an unlocked device.

This matter doesn't have anything to do with being unlocked.

I was merely adding my experience with the 'shady' activity of re-selling and unlocking phones ... and a personal commentary of the shackles we are forced to accept. Cory is in a shady business and thus should be viewed as such! This 'service' they provide is capitalizing on the symptoms created by a consumer-corrupt monopolistic and opportunistic wireless 'service' - much like the service environment a pot dealer operates within (created by the anal prohibition laws)!

my three cents!

I'm not sure what color pills you are on, but there must be several.
And I will take your advice and ignore you.

If you don't understand my comment you can ask for clarification!

if you wanted to ignore my comment... you picked an awfully contentious way to do so with your accusations - my references to pills were metaphors... and I apologize for any inconvenience

There were metaphors, inappropriate and useless. A trifecta from a new user.
Thank you for the help in this thread.

I don't get why my status as a new member has anything to do with the substance of my post - however I think I understand how to get those mega post numbers now :P

I'll try to keep my future comments our of the reach of the birds...

It has everything to do with it. You have not been here long enough to make posts like you did. Stay here long enough, build up respect as a member, and then you can make those types of posts.

Anyway, we're off-topic.

ah, so this forum is a union shop? I need to pay dues before I can make sense?
ridiculous!

... and if you 'respected members' would have stuck to the context instead of inserting your (ignorant) topic hijacking egos, perhaps a stimulating discussion could have ensued instead of childish name calling

Everyone has a dark side including myself, although I would not take it out on a community that I myself belong to and respect. Good luck to both Cory's with all this.
