Ask your cousin if she knows the building in MongKok that sells parallal phones. I do not know the name to the shop, but its on the Ground floor and its all the way at the back and apparently it the only shop that displays BB phones.

Sin Tat Plaza wont have it. CSL (1010) has them in stock for 5188HKD without a contract. If you sign a contract, the majority part will be rebated.

I did see one last time I went, it was about 1 week ago. I even ask the guy how much he is selling. The shop is on the Ground floor and at the very back.
Its the only shop that sells BB's. However that is another shop on the 1/F that sells used BB. But its the one on the Ground floor that has the Bold.

Go in Sin Tat Plaza from the entrance on Tung Choi Street. Make a left and walk towards the end and you will see the shop.

i am picking up my Bold at CSL Hong Kong tomorrow at 1000am (1000pm Sunday night East Coast U.S. time). They are finally releasing it here starting Monday (on PCCW also I assume). Cost without a contract from CSL $5180 HKD ($665 USD) that is unlocked. They said "they will have better promotional disount prices available tomorrow when you sign up for a contract and depending on the contract." - It is about time

Since i already trouble my cousin so much, which place would likely sells the unit that are in stock ? CSL (1010) or going to Sin That Plaza ? and just now i spoke to my cousin what she says that PCCW = CSL 1010 ?? Was wondering which stores of CSL 1010 going to release them on Monday so may be i could ask my cousin to call first before she goes to the store. or may be you have the CSL 1010 store's number ?
Thank you in advance.

This is the link to PCCW's page. I think most of the available Bold are pre-ordered but you can contact their customer service to try your luck.

Suggest not to buy a BB from Sin Tat Plaza, it's hard to get after sales services when things happened. I would buy one from official carriers like PCCW, CSL1010, 3 Hong Kong or Smartone-Vodafone. Just call their service hotlines and they offer very good services.

PCCW and CSL1010 used to be the same company but not now, PCCW offers cheaper with contract.

In Hong Kong BBs from Smartone-Vodafone are locked while all the rest are unlocked, that's why you need to buy one with contract from SV.
