Any recommendations for a place in AD where I can get an out of warranty iPhone 4 repaired?

I think it's best to take it back to where you purchased it and ask - there's probably an authorised service centre here, there are too many dodgy repair shops who do bad jobs on the cheap here.

I'm a blackberry user but planning to get an iphone - any suggestions on the best place to buy/what sort of package to get?

This was the phone used by a former employee, who's since left the Company. The phone was bought in the UK, so not really an option to return it and anyway it's out of warranty.

Here's a link to a Dubai based supplier of all things techno:

http://www.alshop.com/

Their phones are supplied factory unlocked so all you'll need to do is swap your current SIM for a Micro Sim. Costs 50 Dhs.

I took my 3gs to the apple shop in Dubai opposite York Hotel, they would only look at Du or Etisalat phones under warranty, so I went to Dragon Mart, big mistake they had it for 4 weeks before admitting defeat, I am back in the UK at the minute and have just taken it in and was quoted 30 quid to repair.

Just wait a week or two and they'll release a new version
