Re: WOW, this place really is full of idiots.
So, if I read a serial number from my Nexus 7 (not the box, the actual item) which states clearly that it is a SERIAL NUMBER - and it also clearly states on the web site that this is the number I need - but it doesn't work, I'm an idiot.
Whereas you guessed that the box number SSN, rather than the CSSN, is the right one - even thought it is NOT what is stated on the web site - and you're not an idiot.
The only difference between me and you is that you were lucky enough to ignore the instructions, picked a random choice of two - and it happened to work. I read the instructions and the instructions were wrong.
Please don't be so quick to throw around insults, just because you had a bit of luck going your way.
