Anyone know of some good deals on BB?
I'm looking for 2 brand new BB bold 9700's with warranty for myself. Heard Etisalat was offering them at 1000AED a few months ago - anyone know of similar deals?
Or is GITEX the event to wait for?

haven't seen/heard any reviews on the new BB slider - whats everyones thoughts?

I also need to let go of my iPhone 3GS 16GB if anyone is interested - bought it at the end of Feb from Etisalat.... how much could I sell it for?

I don't know about pricing in the UAE, but the new BB Torch 9800 (Slider :arrow: ) is BOSS...It has the new OS6 operating system. Very sleak and very good looking. it obviously doesn't kill androids and iphones in the app department but its a HUGE step up. I suggest you go and try one out at a shop before considering a 9700..

GITEX is overrated i agree, but there's no harm if you wait for it!
there could be better offers in it, and if there isn't i think the price of the 9700 will be reduced (because the 9800 is coming soon)... either way you don't have anything to lose if you wait for GITEX!

Thanks guys. I vaguely remember Etisalat offering a Buy 1 get 1 free last year on the Storm.
Yes, I know - storm was shit, but hey! here's hoping I can get two BB 9700 for the price of Uno!


I also think its a bit ridiculous that I need to pay AED 300 to cancel my iPhone package, EVEN THOUGH i'll be signing up to a MORE EXPENSIVE BB package.

FFS Etisalat, I'm upgrading my package and want to give you more money, yet you still want to charge me for the old package - wankers ..... :mad: :mad:

Etisalat probably is thinking "This sucker is dumb enough to have the Iphone package, and now he is going a step further and taking the BB package, lets fleece hi some more!!" LOL

Etisalat is one big Turd .. So is du.
