      Well, this is a smartphone company that sells specifically to Africa, so you may have to ask someone to purchase it for you in either one of the African countries selling it like Kenya, Nigeria and ship it to you. I don’t think you would need to do that with the numerous options you have in London.

      Plus, I will have you know, by being in London, getting this will make your warranty situation difficult, not forgetting that the device won’t have been tested on the UK mobile carriers for efficiency.
