Went into to my local Vodafone store and asked them to check the price of this phone without a monthly contract it came up at £200.00, so I bought one, it seems like a red hot deal to me. Enjoy and grab them quick, as I reckon this is a mis price.

I even think it is not sim locked too.

Wheres the link?

It takes you to the Voda site?
#7
Vodafone have said on their forum that the F490 is not available on contract until 7th April, having been put back from 31st March. Its not showing on either PAYT or contract on the Vodafone website so I reckon you got a good deal

Great April Fools day Joke
#9
lol well done
#10
Was this an April Fool or not???
#11
I don't think it was - on Vodafone's eforum this morning they said that the F490 is now available in the shops. Contrary to what they said the other day but its true.

Talking of April Fools did you see the flying penguins on BBC iPlayer? Great piece of film! :p
#12
I've already voted but this should defintely get bumped up to a hot deal. I got one today. About half the price it will be selling at when it actaully does come out. Someone new vote HOT!!!!!

Yes it does
#14
Is this price instore only cos when I phoned and asked the price was a definite £350.
#15
How does this compare to the LG Viewty then?
Is it easily unlocked/debranded, could i use it on the 3 Network?
#16
Right...

Have been into 7 Voda shops today and have only managed to return with 1 F490 at £200. Most of the shops don't have much stock so won't sell SIM free. Others have the price as £350 so I think whoever got any at the £200 price is well lucky.
#17
how does a fone for £200 be a bargain it will be half price within 6 months and hold hat by 12 months the business of fones are a rip off imho i wait till there £50...lol
#18
Dont forget apart from the 5mp camera this phone is fairly basic, i.e no wi-fi, gps or symbian/microsoft operating system. and it will almost certainly drop in price after a few weeks

You could use that argument on almost everything "electronic".
Anything you buy now will be cheaper in 6 months and cheaper still in 12 months.
However as this phone is probably going to have an RRP of £400 and the OP has managed to get it for £200 then I think I'd have to agree that is a bit of a bargain.
#20
These are priced at £350 for PAYG. So basically a bargain SIM free phone.
#21
My local shop told me they don't sell that.

I don't think lacking wifi or gps makes a phone basic. With a 3.5" headphone socket, voice dialling, touchscreen and BT2.0, I reckon this phone is pretty well specced. Admittedly they don't say much about the camera lenses - I had a Viewty for a while and can testify that 5mp doesn't mean much if the optics are rubbish. I have wifi and gps on my current phone and barely use them. If anything this Samsung is what the LG Viewty wanted to be and failed - a piece of kit that could take on the iPhone and give it a run for its money...

And as for operating systems, my current phone is running Windows Mobile. That's probably why it takes five keystrokes to do what my SE 800 used to do in one, and the battery runs down every two and a half days...
#23
This is no iPhone killer (an annoying phrase), it's aimed dead at the Viewty price bracket, but there are a few reviews and videos on youtube and CNET. To meet the sample tested looks a little slow at some points in the video.
#24
this doesnt even compare to the N95 ... its more eye candy with "some" better functions than the iphone.

I need a new phone with GPS built in ... an upgrade to my N95

good price though.
#25
sounds good.anyone know if it is as god? Better or worse than iphone?
What store did you get it in, just asked for the price....and quoted £200??
Cheers
#26
Compare this to any WM or S60 phone and you'll soon see how this is just for fashion victims. Forget the fact it has no WiFi, GPS or any 3rd party application support that you would expect at this price level. All of which will consign it to the bargain bins when you get bored of the eye candy.

But if you want it a great price. :)
#28
Anyone that has puchased one of these phones...can you say where abouts you got it from? as my local vodafone shop sells it at £350.
#29
