I've just checked my credit card (AMEX) and I was billed £161.98 yesterday, thus:

AMAZON *MKTPLCE EU-DE
177,65 EUR
PAYMENTS
Process Date 14 Jul
Currency Conversion Rate 1.1295
Commission Amount £4.70

I think it's a little misleading to say this phone will cost £156. There's simply too many variables when it comes to exchange rates, commission, etc.

True, but it's still a rather good deal!

Sorry was only trying to help you out, my bank didn't charge me a commission charge anyway.

Phone just arrived, setting it all up now, I'll let you know how I get on.

Can't get mine working, all I have it a totally black screen and zune is telling me to complete setup on my phone. Any ideas?

thats an odd one, as soon as you turn it on? what happens when you connect to zune?
#165
you shouldnt need to setup the phone with zune, you just turn it on and fill in the options, what happens when you power on normally?
#166
All I've seen so far is a black screen. Every time I turn it on it is just black and stays like that. Do you think it could be faulty?
#167
not sure, seems odd, its detected in zune though, try a hard reset using VOLUME DOWN + UP + CAMERA + POWER buttons.
#168
Sorry, I wasn't having a go at you. Bad choice of words on my part. I'm sure you weren't intentionally trying to mislead anyone.

It's sort of like including cashback in deals. It's not a given. If you know what I mean? Re commission - maybe I should switch banks. ;)

Sorry to hear about your phone! :o

Thanks for the message, can understand where you're coming from don't worry!

Yeah bit of a bummer, have put my iphone on ebay already now so gonna be phoneless whilst they sort out replacing it I guess.

am loving this, camera is superb, my wife now wants to sell her iphone 4 and get 1 too... Win7 is amazing on this.... just getting loads of apps now, zune has more than expected, only got angry birds so far
#171
Just received mine, currently setting up. It feels lovely, very impressed!
Feelthevibe, sorry to hear yours isn't working. Could it be something to do with the battery perhaps? Maybe worth charging from the mains for a bit? Hope it does start working, and thanks so much for posting the deal!

Had a bit of a faff on installing drivers

Download this software

http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product/support-product-profile-mobile-redux.jsp?customerModelCode=LGE900&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile

And ehn don't select the download link as this model aint listed, you need to select customer support in the top links and then application, drivers etc and then enter your model no and then your model is listed
#173
You don't need that LG app do you? Just grab the Zune software off Microsoft.

I hope they can sort it out for you. Can you speak German? ;)

UPS have updated my tracking to say I should have delivery on Monday (instead of Tuesday). I suppose it's too much to hope it'll come tomorrow. :)

I don't know why I'm so excited, it's actually a present for my dad. (I've got the Samsung Galaxy S2.) I'm looking forward to having a play. When I was choosing my S2 I gave serious consideration to WM7.

Edit: Oh, ffs. UPS have updated the delivery schedule AGAIN. Now it says

Scheduled Delivery Updated To:
Tuesday, 07/19/2011, By End of Day

Last Location:
Departed - Barking, United Kingdom, Friday, 07/15/2011

Could anybody tell me how warrenty would work when buying this phone?
Thanks :)

I'm looking into this now. My first result:

Buying goods from a trader overseas

If you buy goods from a trader overseas, for example when you are on holiday, your rights will usually depend on the laws of the country where you bought the goods.

If you buy goods on the internet from a seller based in another European Union (EU) state, you may have the same legal rights as if you had bought the goods in the UK.

To find out more about buying goods in other EU countries, visit the website of the UK European Consumer Centre at (New window) http://www.ukecc.net. The UK European Consumer Centre can also help you make a complaint about goods bought from a trader based in another EU country. You can find information about this on their website.

In England and Wales, you can also find information about goods bought from a seller in another EU country in Buying goods and services within Europe in Consumer Fact Sheets.

If all else fails, I would make a claim against my credit card. Which is one reason why I decided to buy via Amazon and use my Amex card and not direct from the seller's website and be forced to use Paypal. I don't trust Paypal.

Okies Mango Installed..... Taken me 4 hours....ouch

Had a few niggles during installation as I found the guide and forums a little backwards, so here's my 9 step fool proof guide.

Firstly it took me longer as Zune has connectivity issues with some users (see google/forums), I couldn't be ar$ed faffing around so I just formatted my PC (been meaning to do it for a while anyway).

Providing you don't have Zune issues like me this takes about 20-30 mins

Here we go.....

1. Install Zune from zune.net
2. Create and Account with Zune and log in and plug in phone
3. Make sure phone is sync'd with Zune
4. Select phone in zune (bottom left) and update phone you need to do this twice as there are two lots of updates
5. Install Microsoft Support tool (32 Bit, 64 Bit) Once installed run the program and do nothing with it, just close it
6. Close Zune
7. Download Developer files here This makes Zune think your phone is a developer phone and makes Beta updates available
8. Run update.bat from the folder (make sure Zune is closed), this will also create a back up of your phone which you need to keep
9. Once update has finsihed it will load Zune, close the command prompt from the update file and install the updates in Zune, you again need to do this twice to get mango

When the mango official release is available you need to use the restore files in the developer files and the back up to restore to the old version before installing the official mango so keep all the files. Official Mango aint coming till Spetember at the earliest.

Hope this helps someone

Good Luck

Oh...... And is it worth it? HELL YES
banned#179
Oh I should have added, the second time you do the update at the end is the longest part, this took about 10 miutes to install mango, you can see the line on your phone which is the progress bar, I almost unplugged my phone as I thought nothing was happening and then noticed the line move (thankfully)
#180
Thanks for that @hmmmnice - nice and easy guide!
#181
if possible install mango soon after getting the phone, few people have had bugs with apps installed before mango and had to reinstall loads, very few people but its easier from fresh anyway :)
banned#182
Okies another quick update, after playing for a few hours with Mango I plugged it back into zune to top up music etc and got an error with media component

Fix was to install Beta Version of Zune here

At first you'll probablt not notice much difference (you can check version in settings, phone, should be 7.5 trial).

But each app has so nice new features, scrolling pictures, navigation app added, media player a lot slicker and more options added, etc etc, if you play with Win 7 and the play with win 7.5 the difference is so much nicer
banned#184
Also loving the TV function, I have a Samsung 55" 3D LED TV and when I selected to view a picture on my TV it popped up on my TV asking for access, now whenever i select a pic, video or music to play through tv it just plays, all controlled from the phone... loving it
#185
Having a new phone you won't notice massive changes but the main ones are better browser. Multitasking. Third party apps are way smoother. And everything has a massive speed boost. There's so many small changes though its immense.

Just to add - had major headache trying to get this on.

I didn't check/apply updates to the phone out of the box. I just fired up the mango hack straight away. The app that fools zune into thinking it's a dev phone actually stops legit updates... you can't install Mango without the latest update on.

Only worked once I went back to my backup, installed the old Zune, updated then went back through the process :)
#187
Good to see the Mango hack is working, haven't had time to try it out yet.
Is anyone having problems getting Hotmail to synchronise? It was working out the box, but stopped some time last night, potentially after the last update...

I can't seem to find the Zune beta (*found it linked above, cheers), but I've checked for updates yeah. Might follow your instructions to update to Mango now then, as it looks like I might have to reset and start again anyhow.

One question though, when you go through with the official update, will all of your apps/settings etc be lost?

Note it's better getting genuine as fake don't have the IC chip to recognise when it's full and so keep charging thus F*****g your battery....

Thanks to the OP for the deal, and thanks to hmmmnice111 for the clear instructions for the update to Mango beta.

Took me 2 hours with all the downloads etc, but it's been worth it. It's going to take a bit of getting used to but so far so good.

Just wish Skype was available, but they are predicting a release sometime so I'll just wait :)

hmmmnice111, thanks again for the Mango instructions, got it on last night and it is beautiful. Might have to switch back though as my market is being temperamental, keeps error-ing out on the Orange/LG app things and when downloading certain things.
Otherwise, I'm so glad I didn't go for Android...

Sufficient apps? I know theres loads more on iOS/Android, but a lot of them are useless...
