What they will do is to call Sprint to activate the phone manually to the system (ESN) and then it will provision itself automatically. Of course do not tell BB you have sero, just say you are in the corp account will do.
Yeah, I knew this, but as of now it is no way worth buying through BB unless their prices online don't reflect their prices in store. Still, unless it's under $270, which I sincerely doubt (that whole discounted TP was months ago), it's not worth it.
The phones on Ebay are sold by pretty high-rated sellers and guaranteed for activation. I've never had problems on Ebay, but I'll ask for the ESN beforehand if they'll give it.
OF COURSE, the TP2 might be released on Sprint soon, though it'll be ages until THAT'S this cheap, unless BB sells it for low like they did with the TP. I also don't like what it looks like at all. They tried to rip off the iPhone too much, and the colors are meh. Though, I didn't realize the Sprint TP doesn't have a tilting screen; I swear the GSM one did when I was looking before.
