got LE without the screen & back cover protective film

after months waiting , got mine finally.

 

so disappoint with that  the brand new LE isn't with original protective film.

 

Can I assume it is a second hand LE?

Re: got LE without the screen & back cover protective film

I don't think it should matter. There are no moving parts. Electronics are actually often *more* reliable if they've been tested for a little while by someone else (google "bathtub curve"). If there are no visible signs of wear and tear, such as scratches on the screen, then it's none the worse for having been used, if it even is.

The only component that has any real degradation over time is the battery, and even if this is used they may well have delivered you a brand new battery. It's also pretty easy to see the health reading (at least, it is with Battery Guru ;-) ) and if that's in the mid to high 90s then even the battery is just fine.

Re: got LE without the screen & back cover protective film

Check the number and model

 

In the UK we've just had a swap-out as we originally got the STL-100, these were replaced with the STL-200 (4G version)

 

My STL-200 is 7006 - if hugely lower than this and an STL-100 you may have one of the swapped-out devices

 

The number is to be found by taking the back off and looking to the lower right of the box where it says Blackberry Developer

 

This is only supposition but as my 200 arrived three weeks ago seems possible
