    Fake Phone?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place or whatever, first post.
    So, I bought this blackberry pearl 8100 from a friend knowing it was used and everything. But it came in a plain white/blue box that just say blackberry. The phone is Silver/Black unbranded and just says blackberry (no blackberry logo just the text). When you boot it up it doesn't have a vendor logo or anything just says BlackBerry. Is this some cheap knockoff phone or am I missing something. I don't really use it seeing as how I have a curve I just wanted a cheap backup.

    It is probably real, there are unbranded versions of the pearl. I haven't seen a huge string of fake blackberries like I see with iPhones.

    Yea there is a black colored Blackberry phone which is unbranded. RIM does sell phones without a "brand" name on them.

    I didn't even think of that because it wasn't charged when I got it, It looks like all that checks out compared to my curve whatever should be different is (such as model number) It was just strange seeing a color phone I've never seen before

    Boot screen is just like this


    It was only $120 because it's slightly used but nearly perfect cosmetic condition, just though I'd double check on here.

    Looks like a white T-Mobile or AT&T/Cingular 8100. And that box looks like it came STRAIGHT from RIM.

    Nope! He lives like 4 houses down from me, I have no idea where he got it or the history but he's had it for a while.
