Picked up the Blackberry Bold SIM Free for £349.99 today from PC World Romford. On the website the phone is £489.34 but in the latest copy of the PC World magazine Whatever Your World (page 43, available from the front of store), the phone has the phone advertised for £349.99. Stock was low but I did a Reserve and Collect and the showed the ad to the lady who happily matched the price, no quibbles. That is a saving of just over £140 over the PCWorld usual price and £100 saving over Play's price.

Is this phone any good then?
#2
The screen is awesome. Just setting up as I write.
#3
Nice phone, but could never justify spending that much! :)
#4
guess it wud b a good deal if u go on the simplicity tariff with o2?
#5
Fantastic phone that knocks the new Storm out of the park, not really a 'consumer' phone - more a business tool as you'll need your service provider to have a BES to get your email....and you'll have to pay for the license.

Again why do people vote cold.If this is the best price for this item its a good deal albeit only if you want this phone. owever if this is not the best price for phone then vote cold and tell us what best price is and where it is available. It is getting ridiculous that people vote something cold just because to them it is either expensive or a perceived waste of money. That is not the point of the site point is to get people what they want at the best price.This could be a quid for a bottle of shampoo or yes 350 quid for a phone.

Extremely nice phone. My fathers just got one and its scweeeet.
#8
very good reviews for it as well.
#9
It's a superb phone. Manages all my email accounts, full internet access and isn't too large to slip in your pocket. £349 is a great price if you are not going down the free phone with a contract route.

well said

This is a great phone, as already mentioned the video quality is HD, there is a speed racer trailer on it when you get it and looks amazing.

Not really a pay as you go kinda phone I have to admit, you do need the BES and a web package so might as well just get it free on a contract.
