Counterfiet BalckBerry D-X1 battery?

[ Edited ]

I've bought a new battery for my Storm 9500 on eBay. The bettery was sold as originial and for me it looks original except of the missing ® next to the BlackBerry-logo. Does this prove, that the battery is counterfiet?

that symbol is usually very light on the logo and to the lower right of the "y" in BlackBerry.


You don't see it?

 

I don't know that not seeing it there "proves" the battery is not OEM, but I guess you it does give one a reson to wonder.

Re: Counterfiet BalckBerry D-X1 battery?

Yes, this is the place I were expecting it. Like on photos in the web. But there is definitively no "R"...

 

Problem is, that the seller is located in Berlin (Germany) where I'm living. I just found his offer on eBay and we've arranged, that I pick up the bettery in his office. I payed in cash, reveiced no invoice and there is no ebay or paypal involved (naive, I know...). I just don't know how I should act now. The Bettery is working fine, just cost me 6 euros but he's still deceiving people by selling counterfiet betteries on ebay labeld as genuine ones...

You bought the battery outside of eBay and PayPal protection.

 

There's nothing you can do.
