Want to purchase 9810

[ Edited ]

Hi all, first post here - I'm wanting to purchase a White 9810.

I've tries multiple sellers - Futureshop/BestBuy/Telus/Bell/Rogers Stores and get "we send the non-current units back to the manufacturer".


Does RIM attempt to sell phones after they become non-current - surely they don't throw them away or fill a warehouse with them.


I realize they're on ebay etc, but I would rather purchase from/help RIM.


Any responses appreciated,

Re: Want to purchase 9810

RIM doesn't do direct-to-consumer sales. What they do with the extra units is beyond me but you won't get one from them.
