Re: Free BlackBerry PlayBook Ship Date

Unfortunately in Slovenia sender can not pay receiver's duties/taxes (told by local FedEx). It's so sad because Slovenia is member of EU, uses euros and is inside Schengen border but it acts as balkan country and not as EU one.


I am waiting for a response from TMG to see its opinion and then I am going to pay my 'debt' to my country.

In Slovenia I have to pay almost 100 euros for taxes and other fees (our custom is evaluating PB as 500$ valued device). Just for info: RIM is not covering that.

Everything should have been covered. Please contact BlackBerryPlayBookOffer@TMGIdeas.com for help with this.
