I will not be taking any more orders for members on Crackberry.com I am afraid, due to price increases of Handsets, Limited stock and most importantly, aggro from doing it. I just got a PM from a guy who was going to order from me, supporting me. He's now had to pay £620 on eBay for the handset because he wants it, where I have been doing it it for RRP + Shipping with a donation to charity.
All handsets are now with me to be dispatched, and I will not be doing anymore.
Sorry if I have disappointed anyone.

im willing to pick up where this guy has left off, but only a few at a time.
My terms are bank transfers(wire transfers).
Like the OP mentioned stock is thin on the ground and for some odd reason black now costs more than white and the main independent has decided to stop doing sim free versions.
I've just ordered a white one (would've prefered to the black but hey) from phones4u(link is earlier on in the thread)
I did see your PM bud, thank you.
I'll take a quick if you'd like - no problems. Don't worry, its just a case of opening the box, peeking inside and seeing if it powers on. Everything else is sealed and as is.
As you'd like me to look, I will.

I asked you twice via pm how the transaction will take place and I provided you with my concerns.. and you did not answer them.. that makes you UBER (as the Germans say) trustworthy.
My details have been given to all users, I'm verified and i answered all their questions. Maybe you'd like a screenshot of all my PMs to show. apologies, didn't realise I had to answer your PM's. Are all one posters forum police? even more ironic, why would I trust you as a buyer with 1 post? for all i know, you could be the turd that attempted the charge back.
I rest my case.
PS: Consumer Courier services are Prohibited from sending Lithium Batteries to Germany and France, therefore It wouldn't have been possible anyway.

It seems that, unfortunately, many people in the world still lack basic common sense. I never said that you did not answer my PM's, I said that you failed to answer the most essential question which was "Give me a reason for why shall I trust you with my money, because honestly I wanted to buy from you".
I tried 6 different companies, varying in cost to send one to Germany, all of which refused. You could lie I suppose, but then 1. You won't be insured. 2. If an accident resulted due to your lying (Like the DHL Plane Crash in the Middle east caused by mis-labelled Mobile phone batteries being in the wrong hold) you'd be held accountable.
Still - I don't hold a grudge and wish you all the best!
Philip's Z10 is showing as delivered - Awaiting some feedback from him!
Tonny Joost, Kevin - I am in the process of getting your phones dispatched, but this whole situation with Lithium Batteries via UK Courier is a bit of a nightmare. I've been refused insurance with the usual service, so I cannot use them to send. Certain countries have stupid rules it seems. I'm heading to DHL to see what they can do, and after that - Fedex. I'll update shortly.

People, you seem to be very easy on trusting your money to anyone around the web.. How old are you, 10?
Never said that RiSq is a phoney and that's why I asked him how can I be sure that once I pay him Im going to receive the item. And I'm not from Germany, I am from Greece but the battery thing is something that Royal Mail changed very recently and applies to all the devices that goes ONLY outside UK so the plane example is quite.. not true. Cargo within the UK is being dealt by horses?
DHL does not have this new rule for batteries, it's only a RM thing.
Lithium Ion Batteries Faulted for Jet Crash — Tech News and Analysis
Basically, the normal ingredient for Fire is of course, Oxygen. When Lithium Batteries decide to catch fire, they can actually burn without Oxygen, making them extremely dangerous in aircraft.
It's different everywhere it seems.
For instance, To Switzerland, It had to be in a certain type of container I posted it in - I had to re-package it as my expense at the post office. Then to Austria, it was different again. I was in the post office for 30 mins. Then I have sent one to Spain, and the battery had to be contained within the phone, with an additional outer box between the padding, and the protection. Germany and france are totally black listed from all but the £75 shipping option, which involves a tonne of paper work.
Why, oh why can it not be clear cut rules. I'm on-route now to the other companies, and I've enquired with parcel2go.com, which is a popular collect-from-you and dispatch service here, which offers business like courier services for consumers.
It is quickly becoming clear why all the eBay Z10's are UK Only auctions!
