Duty tax (130usd) for DA charged to touchstone account and paid by BlackBerry.
So, if we need pay duty tax it self, maybe i must pay mpre than 150usd. i need move to singapore next year.

For my case, i m abit worried about shipping company in Malaysia. The work ethic is questionable but doesnt i m completely right. As to avoid mysefl from getting nothing at the end. So, I emailed to ELSA to ask for tracking code and she gave to me after i told her that i m worried the parcel will be stolen (which usually they claimed it missing parcel)
I called up UPS in KLIA and Shah Alam to track my stuff. Apparrently UPS staff are helpful as well as people in SIRIM. Jus ask what SIRM needs for permit, and what UPS needs for custom clearance.
UPS gave me 5 copy of stuffs for custom clearance and 1 authorization letter for them to represent me to collect the LE from custom. I didnt upload that letter because i was told not necessary since it is for personal use although i m using my company address.
Regardless free phone or paid phone (you bought online), you need to pay the import permit. It is stated in their policy and you cannot run from it. You give a try to email BBRY to claim for the permit if you want to. I will do that once i got my LE.
I have forseen this will happen and 2 months back i raised this issue to 1 of 2 Malaysian BlackBerry Elites. I asked him to suggest to BBRY to make a bulk delivery of LE into Malaysia rather than sending one by one to dev. The reason is to avoid this import permit stuff from happening on us. Unfortunately, nothing happen. Either he never pass my message or BBRY has appointed ELSA and her team to do the shipping earlier.
Rather than pointing fingers to BBRY or PR or Outsource Company now, we just need to work what is the best for us to make sure we get the LE. Talk nicely to UPS and SIRIM and they can help you. So, jameztcc, UPS and SIRIM are not accountable for the problem that you face now.
Anyway, once i got the LE, i would write an email direct to Alec Saunders about what i have said in here.

Walkthrough on how to deal with UPS and Sirim in Malaysia
Sounds such a pain in the a** to do all these stuff but do we have any choice? So, enjoy it!
If you want SIRIM and UPS to process all these fast, make sure you call them once you sent the emails.
