A lot of people are just buying a cheap pda off of ebay. Some of these pda's you get a $100 for, you can purchase for $20.
I purchaed a used 6280 on ebay from a 3rd party reseller, while trying to register the PIN with Cingulair (AT&T branded unit) they show that it is still assigned to the previous owner and will not release the PIN for re-assignment until that user cancels the service, of course they won't give me any contact info for the previous user. The SIM card that came with the unit is un-assigned in the network.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. The seller has offered to refund my purtchase, but I would just as soon activate the unit.
