Why I got the Blackberry LE used?

Yesterday, After a long waiting period I got my BB10 LE Red. 

I was too much excited for it and when I opened the box from UPS, I found the device with teared upper screen guard.

 

By which I clearly get the indication that the device is used.

 

any body can please tell me why Blackberry did such poor thing?

and also my device has 100-1. why don't I get  100-2?

 

In near future LTE will be available in my area also, at that time do I have to purchase new device for Testing my application on LTE network?

 

Why Blackberry- a well Esteemed Company- doing such shameful thing?

They are sending 100-2 to other developers and why are not sending to us also?

 

These things are really very disappointed me as well as its also disappointing developers from my country.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Nrupay Shah

Re: Why I got the Blackberry LE used?

Where are you from? When was the device shipped to you?

 

 

BB is sending LTE devices to the devs in the regions where already a LTE network exist, not where LTE will be implemented in the future.

 

BB has started sending recall notice for LE devices in EMEA region just few days ago and hasn't started collecting them yet. At the pace they are distributing the devices, I don't think you have received one of those recalled devices. But, you should contact the BB developer relations asking why the screen protector was torn and if your device was activated earlier. 

 

If confused, you can post your unique LE number in this forum and other forums like in crackberry to check if someone else had it before.

 

Good luck!

It is on the back cover. Just remove it from the phone.

I also suspect the same (that customs did it during checking)

Re: Why I got the Blackberry LE used?

fireball003, yes customs are likely. Did you get the tracking number for ups? Maybe check if the LE was delivered later than expected?

@HSingh2012, nope, no tracking number so far. Chris sent a reply saying that it will take time to get permission from Chinese customs. So, we will have to wait longer.
