Just been into the orange shop at trafford ctr, didn't see any bolds out on the floor, when enquired, was told they were not for upgrade, and brand new customers only. Called 156 back, they said this was rubbish. Went back into the shop, and after a conversation in the back, I was greated with an open blackberry bold box, with a handset inside it, covered in finger and thumb prints.. And I was told its £129.99 to upgrade... Safe to say, I still have my curve.
I phoned my local store - also told the handsets they had received were special and only "provisioned" for new contracts (as if it could only work for a new connection...). I didn't point that out for the utter bollox that is - it's just retail trying to get a jump on everyone else and get a few new signings before they're everywhere next week.
