Everything you need to know about the Blackberry Bold 9800 Slider

As always, it’s likely that you’ll be able to get the Blackberry Bold 9800 Slider for free, with the price of the handset subsidised by a network carrier. However, if you do that, it’s also likely that you’ll be stuck on a 24-month contract – at least initially – paying a hefty premium.

If you don’t use the phone that much, it may make better financial sense to buy your Blackberry Bold 9800 Slider on a SIM free package. This will cost you more initially – the Apple iPhone is currently on sale at £499 SIM free, and although the Blackberry Bold 9800 slider is likely to be cheaper it gives a good indication of how expensive these handsets can be.BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider smartphone pictures

However, factor that cost over a period of time – such as 24 months – and things start to look a lot cheaper. If you opt for a budget Pay as You Go SIM card, or a cheap contract, it could work out much cheaper than signing a contract – with the added benefit of being able to buy a new phone whenever you want.
