Please get a non-camera smartphone to India!!

[ Edited ]

Hello BB Team, I am a huge fan of the BB phones and so are many other people in my family. But we have a situation on our hands in terms of offices allowing camera cellphones onto their production floors being treated as information security breaches. So many offices in India have now banned camera-equipped cellphones and hence the need for a smartphone that has everything else but a camera arises. I understand that there is a Blackberry Tour 9630 which is available in other parts of the world, but was never launched in India. Is there any possibility I can get one of these pieces through legal channels? I very much want to stick to using a BB, but now, I am being forced because of my workplace related policies to move over to a stupid Samsung non-smartphone, because noone ever thought about smartphones without cameras. I am not sure if you are the right people to write to about this, but I could not find any other link on the http://in.blackberry.com/contact/ site to actually write to and check for this. Please help me to either get in touch with someone who can address this, or at least pass on my feedback to the folks who take decisions about which phones to launch in which countries. Thank you, BB!!

 

Note: I have a link from a 3rd party website - http://www.dealsandyou.com/blackberry-9630-tour-new-othercities-10042012-d-n-y.html/?city_cat=83 - this is an online shopping website, which claims to be selling the same 9630 model without camera, imported from other countries. I have never been a real big fan of online shopping, so I have my doubts, especially because they have already mentioned that these pieces carry only a "3-rd party warranty" and that too only for 6 months. If BB India was actually selling this model in India, I doubt people would ever have to buy from such 3rd party vendors.

 

Best Regards,

Sandeep.

Hi Mohit,

 

Let me know where you are located (in India?) and what is the price you wish to sell the phone for? Is this an unlocked phone?

 

Regards,

Sandeep.
