With Christmas just a few days away now I thought it would be handy for good people of the UK to have one place where they can check out the best deals on Pay As You Go BlackBerry smartphones. After all - the youngsters are still digging BlackBerry here, although I expect we have seen a slight loss is market share this year. 

Starting from just £79.99 you can pick up a new BlackBerry - although this will be a legacy device. If you want BlackBerry 10 then it's going to cost you a little more, but as you'll see at the bottom of the list, the gap between the two operating systems has narrowed quite dramatically at one retailer. 

Whether you are looking to pick up a BlackBerry for your children or partner, there should be something for everyone. All the below networks do of course also offer BlackBerry devices on contract too, but I suspect that Christmas time is when the PAYG market hits the roof. 

O2

Orange

T-Mobile

Vodafone

Three

EE

But the bargain of the year has to be at Carphone Warehouse where as well as the 9320 and 9720 you can pick up the BlackBerry Z10 from just £159.95 on a selection of the above networks. 

If you're leaving buying a BlackBerry until the last minute we're ho-ho-hoping this post comes in handy. If you find any better bargains feel free to share in the comments.

Been looking for a white Z30 like crazy but the closest place to get one is from the Uk on Vodafone.

My daughter is now wanting a Z10 given it can have all of her favourite social apps on it. With the price at Carphone Warehouse so good looks like she might get it ;)

Anybody notice carphone warehouse uk have stopped selling Z30s, was going to order one this week as I get paid but they've stopped selling them!
Pretty gutting considering they was stocking them only last week... looks like amazon is getting a new customer

That's quite odd - I was in CW in Canterbury a couple of weeks ago and they not only had all 4 BB10 devices on show, they had the Z30, Q10 and Q5 on a separate promotional BlackBerry stand, in a prominent place! I asked about the Z30 and the assistant said it was a really good device and he'd heard lots of good feedback about it! I almost fainted :)

I know someone living in canterbury that can get me a Z30. Did they have a z30 in white ?

I tried to look at his screen and I *think* I saw a white option but can't be positive, sorry :(

I went in to CPW last weekend and asked to look at a working Z30... and the first assistant answered: "Who's that by, then?"!

Another assistant stepped in: "BlackBerry, isn't it?"

As if things couldn't get any worse, the 'manager' then contributed: "Well, we will be getting them in just as soon as BlackBerry release demo samples."

After I explained the Z30 had been released weeks ago, the manager's reply of shrugged shoulders saw me leaving the store in resignation that BlackBerry is on a very bug, uphill struggle!!!

Had the white z10 unlocked from CPW for a month now! What a phone! In the space of 6 months I've had 2 huaweis devices, 2 Lumia devices a GS4 and the iPhone 4. The blackberry blows them out the water! But like mentioned above the sale support for these BlackBerry devices is shocking, nobody wants to know and that's sad espcially when the OS and Hardware is so strong.

Handcrafted and sent by my beautiful Z10

I went to three different carrier store yesterday and not one had a BB10 device, sales assistants in two of the stores said BlackBerry had told them they are going out of business that is why carrier stores do not have any BB10 devices on sale
