    Where did you buy your Bold?

    I'm sick and tired of waiting. I've decided to pick up a Bold, unlocked.

    Question is, where should I purchase it? I'm thinking eBay, but if someone has a good experience with a different source, for cheaper, let's share!

    The best way is to get it from Canada and not eBay. Just make sure your Canadian friend gets you a Rogers post production unit.

    Its something like 700-800$ without a contract...but its still short in the greater Montreal area. Might be a few units here and there but they get off the shelves as soon as they come in.


    Good news though, is that its made in canada....so no duty fees!

    Oh bummer, I can currently get one from eBay for about $750, unlocked. Is there any other benefit to getting one directly from Rogers, besides peace of mind?

    I bought mine at Best buy Canada, in Richmond, BC, 649 CAN + taxes, a bit over 700 CAN with all that, exchange rate was 1.06 CAN = 1 US so worked about to about 650 US then paid 20 US for my unlock code from a reputable source, but rogers emailed with this:
    The Blackberry Bold is available for $649 without a contract. However, we are unable to unlock Rogers Wireless phones at any cost. If you try to unlock your phone through a third party your warranty will be voided and there is no guarantee the phone will work thereafter

    Just finished reading through that thread. So, are you willing to ship out another one?

    unlocked the bold voids your warranty? i was told otherwise since its just a code and nothing to do with the actual hardware

    Rogers is full of it. Unlocking it is just a code, it does not physically modify the unit in any way.

    $649 Cdn + 13% Tax (Ontario PST and 5% GST)

    Plenty of stock in Toronto.

    it does not as some of the carriers will give you the unlock code and even RIM will give it to you if you get a really nice rep.
