Is this a good price over there? It's a good one here if it translates to around 33k INR.

Interesting price if true. Carphone Warehouse tend to be expensive. An unlocked S3 costs £500 from them but can be found for £385 from other sites and the Xperia S is £380 and can be found elsewhere for £280. I think you'll probably be able to pick this up for £400-450.

Edit: They're selling the Nexus 4 for £450!!!

Not a fan of CPW but I bought my Nexus 4 from them and it was £389 (Sim Free) but note they have jacked the price up to £449. However, they are also selling it on Pay As You Go for £379 plus £10 top up which equates to £389 and as they do not lock their phones, this would be the better option!

£480 is a reasonable price, but what about the radios it has though? Phone arena do you have any knowledge of the hspa+ and lte radios this baby has? And does the hspa+ Support AWS 1700/2100? Thanks chaps

Blackberry devices are overrated and overpriced anyway.. Always used/preferred Nokia Eseries devices back then specially when BBM was not yet available here.

The unlock price £480 for BlackBerry Z10 is quite high i think, as i buy code from safeunlockcode.com and the price is very low here and the code also work well, i faced no issue.
