Hi all,

I am currently in need of  new phone and have decided to buy a Blackberry Z10. I have found that Carphone Warehouse is selling them for 180 UK pounds (roughly 348 NZD). I just have a few questions that I hope you can answer before I buy it.

1. Does anyone have experience buying from Carphone Warehouse using Youshop?

2. Would the model sold by Carphone Warehouse, (, work on both Telecom and Vodafone's 3G and 4G networks?

3. Does anyone know the shipping dimensions of the package as its not on Carphone Warehouses website.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your help. :) good to know that it is the same model so support etc should be the same.

Anyone else have experience with Carphone Warehouse?

Remember using the UK Youshop you will also pay 20% VAT (GST)  I assume that this is included in the website price??

I tried to buy a Nexus 7 from Carphone Warehouse as a Christmas present for my sister in law living in London. Everything went fine until they tried to process the payment, I ended up having to ring them up and it turns out they won't use overseas credit cards, you'll need a card with a UK billing address.
