Default Bold in London.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

My trusted berry took a haaard dive on marble in my hotel and it's practically destroyed :(

For the time being i'm getting my emails using the laptop and wifi access points (which does not work well in my line of work, i move a lot and the laptop size is also an issue)

Is there someone in the London area that can possibly hook me up with a new/new-ish/used/working Bold. Doesn't have to look great, just being in working condition.

My contract is up in some 60-65 or so days so i'll get a new berry upon renewal. I just need a working solution for now. Please make me an offer that makes sense, don't ask for retail price for obvious reasons. Or if you got a blackberry collecting dust in a desk drawer you dont use i would be happy to take it of your hands.

I can meet you anywhere in central London or the Citygroup tower in Canary Wharf.

Thanks guys

I don't have many spare Bolds, so cannot justify parting with them.

I have a few spare curves. They work fine, but look like crap. Thus why none of my users will take them. What network are you on?

It's probably not your ideal solution, but the device is operational, would tide you over till your contract comes up, and you can have it for free as long as you do the legwork (I am in SW London, would be prepared to travel as far as Earl's Court, apart from that it's down to you!)

Thanks Jadey. I really appreciate it. As i said i don't mind the handset condition. As long as i can send my service books over and i can reasonably read the screen and type i'm fine. I'm on T-mobile.

I would gladly meet you in Earl's Court, either tomorrow or Monday. Whatever works best for you.

Tomorrow or Monday works for me, your call... If you want the device sooner, let's do tomorrow.

I assume you have chargers etc? If so I will just bring Curve.

I propose any further discussion regarding timing we take off-board. PM me.

It is my random act of kindness for May. I can be a lazy cow for the rest of the month now

Thank you so much Jadey, appreciated.

LMAO, thanks

No, seriously, you're welcome. It would have ended up sitting unused in a drawer for years, and then being recycled. I feel happy that the BB is getting a new lease of life, at least for a while.

One thing I forgot to do was remove trace of the IT policy on there. It has the RIM default, so should not be restrictive. But it has been on a BES, and therefore has policy. I can't remember the software OS on there, but if it is over 4.3 just hook it up to jl_cmder and you can "Reset to Factory" and knock the policy off. Let me know if you need any assistance!

This is a special thing you did Jadey. To the people that do them, these random acts of kindness don't seem so special. It's just the way these rare people are. But it is rare, and it's wonderful.
