    Question A sim free BB Pearl - where?

    Advertisement



    Hi guys,

    I am new here and first of all hello everyone!

    I am interested in buying the beatiful BB Pearl in Europe (UK). I searched on the net, and cannot find any deals for an unlocked phone. I don't want a contract or anything.
    Is it possible to get one?

    Szadzik, Welcome to PinStack.

    I thought that the Pearl was available in the UK, given all the questions concerning problems downloading the new themes for it. There are even questions coming from vodafone users on this subject. Have you checked Vodafone's website. You are probably going to pay more for an unlocked Pearl than buying it from your carrier even without the contract discounts.

    Yes I know it is available in UK. However on ebay.co.uk there are only a few of them and most of them are locked TMobile, while I'm a Vodafone user and have no intention of switching to TMobile. I don't want to buy a new contract on Voda either.


    P.S. Is the unit from Vodafone customised in any way? Do they tamper with the firmware the same as with e.g. my M600i?

    Vodafone sell it SIM free for £300. It'll be locked to them but as you're on Vodafone that shouldn't be a problem. I got mine free on o2 with a £25/month contract - works out at £300 over a year plus I get the free calls and texts. I'm hoping to use my Vodafone SIM in it but I've yet to find anyone that can unlock it.

    And in reply to the customisation thing, they include their own theme that is set as the default but you can simply change this. Plus of course there's the small operator logo on the outside.

    Can you direct me exactly to the place they offer it without a contract? I cannot find such an offer.

    You have to go to a local vodafone retailor i'd presume. Tell them you want to buy a Pearl with no contract.

    And what about buying it online? Isn't it possible to buy it from them online?

    EDIT:

    OK. After some arrangements I decided to get a Vodafone Pearl here in the UK.

    Thanks for help guys.

    You can walk into any Vodafone store that has a business center and they'll be able to sort you out with one. It's in their business magazine in-store as well but I wasn't able to find the same option online.
