Blackberry Bold’s OS screw up

I’ve been trying to buy a Blackberry Bold. Full price. No contracts. I just want the handset.

First I went into the Vodafone shop. None left in stock.

Carphone Warehouse? Despite my issue with their insurance, I popped in. None in stock. They’ve all been sent back, I’m told — big, big technical issues with the device’s operating system.


Yup, they’ve got them. Just, not right now. Big issues with the operating system, apparently. Won’t be back in stock ’til the end of the month.


Do I buy one from eBay? A bug ridden new Blackberry Bold?

Decisions, decisions.
