Quidco does not always manage to pay out, View it as a bonus only. don't buy solely on the expectation of payment. Nice phone though!
#2
Absolutely agree! However its already tracked for me and Quidco are very reliable for payouts so I expect it all to be fine. Have edited post though

Nice avatar as well :P

From Quidco.


Note £150 cashback deal will initially track at £50 but will be validated at £150

Please note that your commission will only be received after you activate your phone. It can take up to two months to appear in your transactions listing

Are the cold votes from iphone lovers by any chance ? they just can't accept that there are better phones out there.... :thinking:

great phone and great deal (assuming quidco tracks & pays)
#10
voted hot much better than i-phone
#11
it still doen't support website with flash content?
#12
Just ordered one but after placing my order got a page saying that the sales team needed to check my order and that they would contact me -- is this that Orange doesn't like me or are they trying to make sure they don't have to pay Quidco (which tracked straight at £150)

I ordered the £35 plan (which is only £30 online) since this includes free web browsing
#13
My order's says it's been referred to a member of the sales team who will be in contact shortly. Does this mean I won't get the Quidco cash because presumably the order won't be completed wholly online?
#14
Has anyone elses tracked? I bought mind around 2am Friday and it still hasnt tracked. I know it says it could take 2 months but seems strange some persons have and others hasnt.
#15
Thought I would also mention to the previous two posters, mine did not go to the sales team, just went straight to confirmed order and told me when it would be despatched. I have had a perfect credit score, until this month, when I Forgot to pay off my credit card bill, and also went over my limit so a double wammy.

But was the first time, so not sure how it effected my credit score, But I took advantage of the recent voda deal and this one and passed both credit checks. Although no quidco tracking from orange :(
#16
Sorry but I've had to vote cold on this one.............

PC Pro Magazine just reviewed this phone and gave it 5/6 for Features & Design but only 1/6 for Performance "it's unbearably slow"

They finished the review with "the bad outweigths the good by such a margin that if people told us they were thinking of buying the Touch Diamond we'd be forced to rip the credit card out of their hands for their own protection"

Don't let this stop you buying if you really want it, however I suggest that you do your research first and try and get a "hands on" in the shops before you buy it....................

The forums on [url]www.xda-developers.com[/url] have a variety of tips, tweaks and patches for this phone, and I understand HTC have released a new ROM already that considerably speeds things up

Lukewarm review in the Guardian technology section on Thursday too. http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2008/jul/10/mobilephones.wifi?gusrc=rss&feed=technologyfull

If you don't want the contract there are cheaper ways of buying it - like just buying it.

Expansys have it at £434 unlocked no contract. Nearly £20 cheaper than this deal as after quidco and once you take the £240 contract into account this deal is £453.98!
#20
How is £434 twenty pounds cheaper than £363.98?
#21
This phone is £119.99 plus 12x20 = £359.99 (plus postage maybe) - plus quidco cashback on top. I dont see how that's more expensive than Expansys!

I've read various reviews on this and the only two things that would put me off are the battery life and supposed slowness (although if a new ROM is out that fixes it, then that's somewhat void). It's slimmer than the iphone and looks class. Quite a lot of competition at the moment with these phones.
#22
Plus the good thing with the contract is you can spread the payments over the course of 12 months. Im just binning the SIM when i get it so wont rack any additional costs up on it.
#24
quite tempted to buy this phone to replaced my already sold iphone v1. but reviews seem to indicate it's very slow and battery is as bad as iphone v1

or maybe the fact you have to take out a lenghty costly contract ?
#26
there are better contracts out there which give the phone for free. like for an example mobiles2yourdoor have a deal for £35 a month 700 mins + 100 texts with unlimited landline calls and unlimited internet with cashback it works out to £20 a month and now that is deal.

but then you get no call or text allowance?
#28
I'm quite tempted to get one of these on the monthly contract... but I'm still not sure about the phone, as I had a play around with one in the shop and I wasnt overly blown away! I'm half tempted to wait and see if they get the touch pro with the keyboard, as im still not 100% sure on pure touchscreen phones (Call me old fashioned!) - Anyone happen to know if orange would be likely get it too?

I think this is standard practice with orange. they get in touch by email to confirm the order. Its 18 months since I took out my contract with them.
#30
Voted hot for the price. The phone really didnt excite me though, which is a shame coz I was looking forward to it and hoping it would.

Good price, but not worth it, in my opinion only.
#31
ordered mine free from one stop phone shop with 600 mins and unlimited text for £35 per month.

it still doen't support website with flash content?


If you install mobile flash, it supports it, you tube works fine on my vario2! Although i presume on this it would me much better with a higher res.:thumbsup:

I wouldnt state its unlocked by default if I was you - orange ones very rarely are! And the firmware rebranding by orange is usually horrible.
Great phone though.


You can always get a better firmware from xda-developers. I've done that many times with the several HTC phones I've had over the last few years.

I was thinking of getting the diamond as it beats the new iPhone hands down so this deal is just in time. Voted hot and rep added.

I'm still undecided, how about the Samsung i900 it has quite a lot of features, the only shame is the res* ergh, it's getting quite annoying not been able to decide.:thinking:
#35
Doesnt seem hot to me... iv been waiting for this phone for months now, having seen all the preview shots on engadget.com, but £364 on a contract is rediculous, wait a few weeks and i guarantee this will be close to FREE on a contract. You can buy it for £395 SIM FREE, no quidco but thats not guaranteed anyway
#36
A lot of people arent reading the OP. This is £120 ON CONTRACT, not £360. The price by the OP (quite rightly) shows the CONTRACT cost also.

I have one of the HTC slideout qwerty keyboard phones (Kaiser and Hermes) and I just never use it. If you are going to use the keyboad, then that would be better. I thought I would - but quickly found i didnt. Touch screen is much nicer IMHO.


I know what you're saying, I think im just 'scared' I wont like all the touch screen stuff...sounds daft but, how easy is it to text while your walking and that sort of thing? Daft sounding things but if you cant use the phone for what you want, then theres not much point lol! Thanks for the input though, this is what its all about :thumbsup:

I run an Orbit (version 1) with a cooked rom that lets me use my 8GB micro SD card . Like you Adam, I'm going to wait for the touch pro but only because importantly the memory is expandable..unlike the Diamond which is limited to 4GB. Some folk never even fill a 1Gb card so 4GB fixed memory may be more than enough for them!!

I was same boat, disappoint with memory, but then i realised that i only have 2GB cards on all my phones and they aren't even going over 1GB, so changed my mind with the Diamond.
But then the i900 comes with 8/16GB internal and memory slot, and it's divx/xvid certified means i could put in a few movies to watch while on the tube.
Sorry if i come out as supporter for i900, but i need to choose 2 phones and the more discussion there is the more we are able to make a decision:thumbsup:

The only thing I would warn people about with these (if you havent had an HTC phone before), they break ALL THE TIME. I have had 5 in total, and between the 5, they have been back with provider/manufacturer no less than 15 times. A friend of mine who works at T Mobile has told me they are the most returned phones percentage wise by a country mile.

Obviously no problem as under warranty, but be aware to make regular backups of all your data and be prepared to be without your phone for a period of time at least once during the warranty period.
