Default Visiting London - Where to buy BB Curve in London?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm going to London for the weekend, leaving tomorrow, and I was wondering if there's any place that I could go to and just buy the BlackBerry Curve outright?

Any help from our Briton brothers?

Replies will be MUCH appreciated.

Hope you enjoy your trip to London.

You will not be able to buy outright a Curve in any O2 Store. You either will have to know someone with an O2 Business account or last option, maybe visit Tottenham Court Road. That is where all Grey Importshops are, likelyhood is they wont even have them there but that maybe an option. You will also have to be prepared topay a premium if they do.

Good Luck

Agree! We've just ordered a ton of business 8300s and O2 are running short! But I've just got mine, la, la, la! It's very nice.........

Any shop on Tottenham Court road will be able to source you one dude.

Make sure however you tell them you live in London. They are notorious for ripping off tourists if they spot you...also they ALL talk to each other. One shop at one end is normally owned by the same bloke as one further along. So trying to bat them off against each other is pretty hard.

BUT do bargain and offer cash ;)

They will probably source you one fairly quickly. I remember when the XBOX360 came out. On launch day nobody had one, but for 40.00 extra you could have as many as you wanted from one of the shops on that strip

Good luck my friend, and enjoy the city. Its pretty neat

Hopefully there's more of a supply when I go over in 3 weeks to get married (assuming it's not out here in the US yet)

Yeah, Tottenham Court Road is your best bet. Phone shops galore.

Also, be sure to visit the Spread Eagle pub.
