I'm waiting too, and I heard it will be bricked or deactivated after bb10 announced .

When am I suppose to do with it after that?

Re: What if we receive Dev Alpha After Jan 21st

We really need an official answer. I received mail about Dev Alpha reward but given the fact that it takes at least one week to get it shipped to my country, if I fill the shipping form now; plus at least 1-2 weeks at customs for package inspection/import fees, I will get it after 21st which automatically disqualifies me from trade-up program(App is ready and waiting to be submitted, but I have no PIN for my Dev Alpha).

But RIM knows the PIN. You can try getting from them.

Don't know whether they'll provide PIN for device box that is not open yet. I sent mail, still waiting for response.

January 21st is the deadline for app in App World, not filling out the form to trade up from your BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha.  You can fill out the trade up form after the 21st.
