This is not the right phone you have pictured.

Hehe, thanks. Good Friday sleepiness and a slight bit of number typos. I've fixed that.

Does anyone know if this phone is unlocked or if its unlockable?

Great deal! Voted hot!

Pretty sure if its on 02 it should be unlocked. Not 100% sure though?
#9
What are this company like at cashback? I've heard some real horror stories about some phone places not paying cashback even though bills/vouchers etc are sent on time and via recorded post.

Anyone have any experience of e2save?

Being "clearance" stock it probably is unlocked, but like you I can't be 100% sure...

I've had two contracts with them and claimed cashback no trouble. Infact I lost their cheque and they send me a new one. :-D As long as you follow their T&Cs perfectly you're okay.

the big question - w850 or w880??

the big question - w850 or w880??


check out the w880 in a store if you can. the keys are horrible. depends on your preference.

w880i does not have FM radio and camera flash which the w850i has :thumbsup:
#13
niallmoran
the big question - w850 or w880??


Both have 3G.
Both have a 2 megapixel camera.
Both can record video.
Only the W850i has a light for the camera.
W850i has a marginally bigger display.
W850i has FM radio.
Both have just 16MB memory but this can be expanded, although they both use different types of memory card.

I'd say that the W850i is marginally better, but it's really down to a matter of personal opinion. :thumbsup:
#14
My current phone is an 850i. I like it, however its a bit chunky. Also, you tend not to get the memory card included in clearance deals so factor in buying one of those if you intend to use at as a mp3 player. (i've got a 4gb card in mine).
One final point, the orange button on the front of the phone is for activating the mp3 player function, which you tend to press by accident every time you open the phone. Its also easy for it to unlock itself when in your pocket and start making calls without you realising!

Posted in ducky's other moby deal
And you better hope they don't go bust because they rely on people not to claim if you watched Channel 5's It Pays To Watch otherwise £360 ouch.
For the record, I think 4 cashback mobile companies were shown to have gone bust on that show.
It's a good deal for the organised! http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/160346/sony-ericsson-w880i-12-months-free-/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif
I don't think Carphone Warehouse will be liable for e2save Ltd if they cannot honour the deal.
#16
...and I explained that they were either sole traders or small, Ltd companies.

e2save is no longer a Ltd company - it is a part of Carphone Warehouse Group Plc. The only way that they could go bust is if the whole of Carphone Warehouse Group Plc were to go bust. This would include the sites, the stores, AOL UK and Talk Talk. This is really, really unlikely and even if it did happen their collateral is so huge that they'd probably have enough funds to cover it anyway!!

The only way this will go wrong is if you forget to send your claim in or don't send it with a signature-proof method of sending.

From the T&C
The Carphone Warehouse Limited assumes no responsibility and is not liable for any other products or services promoted or sold through this website
As in my other post, I am protecting the interests of those wary of cashback deals.
e2save is a division of Carphone Warehouse Limited. The parent company Carphone Warehouse Plc is not liable for the debts of Carphone Warehouse Ltd who in turn are not liable for the debts of e2save. I think in buying e2save, they would have guaranteed that they are separate entitites, otherwise you risk bringing down a pack of cards.
It's a great deal nevertheless.

As I said, they ran separately for a number of years and during the last year they were merged. Would you like me to dig out the articles? :)

I believe this refers to insurance services (which are ran by another firm altogether but sold via their site) and adverts for other firms if they should appear.

I find it odd that this one wasn't voted as hot as the other as I thought this was the better phone. :-D

#22
I don't understand this.
You pay your money and you get a phone/contract and every month you send off a claim to get cash back and you end up paying nothing and basically get a free 12 month contract and free phone?
If I am right, can somebody explain how they can afford to do this?
#23
Hi - E2SAVE and all of the companies offering cash-back rely on folks forgetting to post their claims or not bothering or filling in the paperwork incorrectly.

For these companies, the growth of savvy buyers and places like UKDeals means that their margins shrink as people follow the rules and they have to pay out.

This has resulted in a lot of these cash-back companies going bust. Until now, the service providers (like Voda, Orange and all the others) have had no responsibility for honouring these cash-back schemes. Now, OFCOM have decided and rightly so that the service providers must provide back-up for the companies promoting these schemes, in a similar way to the way that ABTA backs travel agents and the stuff they sell. It is a voluntary must at present but OFCOM have said they will make it enforceable if the service providers don't conform.

Hope that helps. :)
#24
Ok that helps, sounds brilliant. A free phone and a free contract, beats paying the £300 a year I pay.
If you forget to claim for one month does that mean you can still cliam the next?
#25
they have this phone free on a 12 month contract at mobileshop.com aswell
My mam has used mobileshop.com and all went well.
#26
No if you miss anything your claims are usually totally void, then they dont have to pay out, imho i wouldnt dream of going for one of these type of contracts, in this day and age all of the procedure should be automated but then they wouldnt be able to con you out of your money.

I'm with you on this one ducky. I prefer the 850, and have ordered. Thanks for this. Now to make sure that nothing, but nothing, is forgotten when claiming the cashback.

One thing I did notice though, is:
T's & C's
credit of £111.00 will be raised automatically by cheque within 2 months if you do not cancel your contract.

So this, on top of the £50 quidco, makes it a 'decent' deal at the very least.
#28
That £111 credit is part of the cashback isn't it? Not an extra, don't want anyone thinking they're getting 12 months free + £111 + £50 quidco!

I've had this phone for about 4 months now and I've never had the problem about it making calls in my pocket. The only 'problem' I've had with this phone is pressing the Walkman button every now and then by mistake, instead of pressing the UP button. All-around great phone tho.
#30
The £111 is guaranteed,hopefully £50 Quidco,which brings it down to £199 if you mess up on the cashback. So you get 200minutes and 200 texts each month for the year a decent phone and 1gb card for £16.59 per month. That is not a bad deal,and if your on the ball with the cashback claims even better.
#31
mobileshop is better with customer services.
You can even send the cashback claim by fax.

So When did this new Legislation come into play , I was unaware of this. Can this be backdated now then so all those who have lost out recently with phoneboxdirect and coolnewmobile and others can all be refunded the cashback they were owed ?

Any info on this is sure to help anybody deciding whether or not it is such a gamble to take one of these contracts out ..... lets face it these companies do not make it easy to claim and the stories you get back are shocking. People sending in original claim forms by recorded delivery , only for some of these companies to reply saying they've recieved the form but have lost it and requesting you send another !!
At present , as far as I am aware there is no legislation in place to protect the customer from the cowboys and con men associated with the mobile communications Industry.
Additionally, under the terms and conditions on some of the cashback deals they reserve the right to alter the cashback and pay in the form of credit to your account rather than actual payment in cash ..... this is just unacceptable and is a get out for any company who finds that too many people have claimed their cashback on time and correctly , so do beware this is a gamble which for some will pay off but for others it'll turn into a complete disaster. As long as you can afford to lose the cashback and you would spend this money on a contract anyway then great you have nothing to lose , for everyone else think carefully whether this deal would be worth it if you didnt get your cashback or got your cashback as credit !
#33
Where have you read that you might get the cashback as credit instead of a cheque? I could imagine this to be the case for one of the smaller companies but I don't believe that e2save would be able to do that? Unless you can show me something to the contrary?

I don't think that the legislation says that the network has to pay if the retailer went bust either so I don't think it'll help with old contracts.
#34
W850i is the worst phone I've ever owned. Difficult to use and the phone lock never works. I'd stay well clear.
#35
Can i keep my old number?
#36
rooney10: no legislation has yet been brought in by OFCOM, although there are currently voluntary "guidelines". OFCOM are intending to get proper legislation in by the summer.

Are you kidding me? I had to stop posting for them a while back as they told people they had problems paying, kept people waiting for ages and then tried to offer them Argos vouchers instead of cash. It was ridiculous. I see that they now offer Argos vouchers instead of cash - maybe the way to go...

I sadly believe that almost all retailers won't port to o2...
#38
They also have the nokia 6300 on a 12month free contract.
And that's not a clearance deal.

The question now is which is the best, the W880i, the W850i or the nokia 6300.

As I said in my previous post, it unlocks itself too easily and has then on occasion dialled the last number I rang.
Having said that, its still a great phone. Stick a 4gb memory card in, and its an brilliant mp3 player, with excellent headphones as standard.
I wouldnt buy it if you'd prefer a camera phone, as its a bit pants for photos. E2save are going the SE k810i on the same 12 month free contract at the moment though.

Are you sure Duckmagic2 the E2Save website indicates you can port - but only at the start of the contract - ie you have to have your PAC when you take the contract.

[COLOR=Blue]Which networks can I port to?

[/COLOR]
[COLOR=Blue][COLOR=Black]I looked at this deal and decided against it - previously I was a serial cashback deal taken - but it all became a bit too messy. I didn't lose any money but ducked out 15 months back when the T&Cs just became too weighted in the retailers favour.

However - think its time to test the water - the £111 plus £50 Quidco mean that even cashflow wise you'll have the money before paying out. I fully intend to get all the cashback - just a little time and effort for a 13.88% return on cash plus a free phone.
