Unlocked BB 9800 on ebay

What is the difference if I bought a BB Torch 9800 unlocked from ebay. I am getting a price of Rs. 22K Vs if I bought from the normal market it is around 30K+.

 

Will unlocked BB Torch work on Airtel 3G and will there be any issues in browsing etc?

Yes, it should work fine. There could be issues if the device is unlocked but the PIN/IMEI is not removed the previous user's account (meaning the PIN would still be registered on another service provider.

 

Confirm beforehand with the seller that the PIN is free and usable, this is different than being unlocked.

Re: Unlocked BB 9800 on ebay

Thanks for the response JSanders.

 

I read the link that you shared, considering I am in India, and local responses from here confirming it worked for them would be really helpful.

 

Also, I will try to gather the information that is shared in the article. Thanks again for pointing to such a super resource and a super quick response.
