For £80 I don't think so mate! What are you expecting an iPhone or something?

As above I'll get links and pics posted as soon as I get get to a proper computer.

Not such a special price, as phones for U have been doing it for £79.95 + £10 for a while now.

Has anyone told CPW they're doing this deal?

"Pay as you go
From
£98.95*
*Plus £10 top up"


***EDIT***
Didn't spot "this weekend" in OP's post

Constructive criticism there i see :roll:

It has a Symbian S60 Operating System (recently been made open source), it has built in GPS, Nokia have made OVI Maps totally free.

It is only £80 with compulsory top up.

Name me a sub £150 phone with a capacitive screen?

I personally have the Nokia 5530 (no built in GPS but has WiFi and a better camera than the 5230) for the money you cannot fault this 5230 against the likes of similar priced touch screen phones such as the Cookie & Tocco Lite.

Just checked Quidco, CPW is £5, and Phones for you is £6.50, so cheaper there The main advantage of CPW is the phone may come unlocked.
#9
Just checked Phones4U site and the £79.95 only appears to be for the white version of the phone, which isn't very manly.

So if you're a bloke and are after the black version then this is the deal for you. :thumbsup:

They must have sold out of the Black model @ £79.95, was there a week ago and the white was £73.45 + £10

Thanks, I like the way that they're selling the benefits of their insurance on that phone -

'Without insurance the device you are buying would cost £0.00 to replace.'

So, who'll give me a free phone replacement on demand?

Since when has white not been considered manly?!


Well I wouldn't walk around with a white phone, especially a white phone with pink on it. Would you?

Haha! Bet you've voted it cold just because I said that, and you've got a white phone, haven't you!! :-D :whistling:

White can be better. I've got the iPhone in black and the finger prints and and even the smallest scratch shows up :roll:
Same with cars, buy a black paint job and all the cr*p from the road shows up, unless you wash it daily in winter, and the smallest dent shows from a mile off.

Seriously though I was only having a laugh! I don't think it's exactly girly for a man to have a white phone but at the same time black is a bit more masculine I suppose (if you catch my drift!). The phones in this deal were described in the Metro ad as being "black and white/pink" with pictures of two different coloured phones shown (as opposed to 3). The pink appears to be on the other side of this phone, as shown below.

It's certainly not small but the thing is the screen covers the majority of the front of the phone. If you were to make the phone any smaller then you'd have to make the screen smaller aswell. The iPhone is larger than this and nobody moans about that.

This (the 5230) and the 5530 are basically trimmed down, less expensive versions, of the Nokia 5800. The 5530 have Wi-fi but no 3G and the 5230 has 3G but no Wi-fi so you pays your money and takes your choice! Presuming you live in a strong 3G area then personally I'd go for 3G over Wi-fi.

will it be unlocked if i buy from 3 network?


When they have a phone for sale across all the networks like this it's usually unlocked. I bought my girlfriend the 5530 for Xmas from the CPW. She's on Vodafone contract but I bought the phone on Virgin as it was a tenner cheaper and it came unlocked. (she doesn't use mobile internet anyway so 3G wasn't a concern).

You could always give them a ring to check first. They do a no quibble money back guarantee aswell if you want to send it back after purchase. (although the £10 airtime is non-refundable)

im sure someone has done this before, but in a nutshell

5530 - smaller screen, wifi, NO GPS

5230 - 3.2" screen, gps, NO WIFI

5800 - 3.2" screen, with both WIFI and GPS



all i wana know is if this CPW deal will be unlocked?

anyone bought it yet and tried another network sim?
#26
I took the plunge and ordered one but doubt it will be here in time to let you know if it's unlocked
order one, if it's not unlocked send it back... simple

assuming this is unlocked: will this work with a 2g virgin sim?


Yes.
#28
The deal is on the front page of the Metro again today. Says it's the last day.

Tel 0800 781 7975 for orders.
#29
yes yes yes !!!

the phone came UNLOCKED!!!
#30
can confirm these are unlocked and the white version is almost all silver, there's very little white on the phone really, the battery cover (the whole of the back) is all silver and it comes with a spare battery cover in black
pity it does't come with a data cable though, or software, had to buy a cable on ebay :(

still available online too
#31
Are all the Carphone Warehouse's PAYG's unlocked, was looking at this here and do you still get Quidco...
