I bought this phone just before xmas & was one of the lucky ones who only paid about £84.
This is the best phone I have ever owned, I have used it whilst travelling to email & facebook home & sort travel arrangements. Apps such as here I am to send my location home.
I have copilot 8 lsat nav loaded & it works a treat without the need to be online.
Google sky is awsome.

It only comes with a 2GB micro Sd so I would advise buying a larger 16gb. Here is a link to one I found.

There is only 1 neggative & thats the built in storage is low & means you have to decide or swap apps but saying that 2.2 Froyo is coming in September which will let you put apps on the sd card instead of the phone memory.

Yes it is unlockable.
T-mobile dosnt need unlocking if using Virgin as they are partners.

It costs around £12 to get an unlock code, but you can also use a smartphone-sim (about £2) which you place between the sim-card and phone, which tricks the phone into thinking it's unlocked

I recommend getting the Smartphone Sim, as it's cheaper and transferable (ie. if your phone becomes faulty you can easily remove it and place it in the new phone, as opposed to having to purchase a new unlock code costing another £12.)

Anyone have one of these and also tried a desire? I have a desire and this will do everying almost that my desire will so may sell it and get a cheaper phone.

I did have an LG optimus until my wife pinched it and gave me her HD2 which I since got rid of for the desire but the lg was not bad either.
suspended#16
which ones is better mini or this? And whats the difference?

For starters the Mini is a bit smaller but has only half the screen resolution.
#18
I'm wondering how it compares to the LG GT540 Optimus!
#19
Got this on the £7.50pm contract - love it!
No probs with this (unlike the iphone!)

I had a Pulse but recently bought a Desire to replace it. The Desire's better in most respects: faster, better graphics hardware (so Google Earth, games, etc., run), more storage, better battery, nicer screen, now has 2.2, multitouch, 3.5mm socket (rather than the Pulse's daft 2.5mm one). Pulse seemed to me to have better battery life (once it got confused somehow and started using far too much battery, but a factory reset fixed it).

Depends how much you use the phone, I guess. Nothing wrong with the Pulse, IMHO, for the price it's an incredible gadget.

your memory seems to be out of stock.....anyone else knows where to get 16Gb MicroSD for under 20£ ?
#24
This or a hero???? Anyone owned both?

I bought this ages ago but it was really slow so sent it back.

I put it down to the old butchered android version they t mobile shipped with it.

One of the lads at work picked up a hero with a shocking install which reminded me of it( latency, poor interface, lack of functionailty/stability) then did a new install of an updated sous and it's a new phone completely?

Any opinions?

I can imagine its slower than the desire and camera not as good etc but the lg optimus does what I need too really and my wife has it now and I asked her if she wanted the desire instead but she is happy with what the optimus can do, even the resistive screen. I would just like capacative screen and slightly larger than the the lg. This may do the job and I can get some money back on the desire as its a mint sim free model only 2 month old.

This is a scorching deal. Dont believe any stories that the pulse is inferior in any way. The original Android 1.5 firmware was terrible and slow due to T-mobile cr*p on it, Android 2.1 is now available as a T-mobile download, and using a little ingenuity you can install a custom ROM via Modaco, and get applications running from the SD card now, without having to wait for FROYO Android 2.2

The Pulse mini is smaller but inferior to the normal Pulse. This phone has a capacitive touch screen just like the iphone. The Mini has a resistive touch screen which is not as responsive or robust.

Loads of FREE applications on the google market, and easily an equal to the iphone. I've had an iphone and the pulse and there is NO WAY i would go back to an Iphone.
#27
Good phone, can get some great customisations, takes a while to get your head around on how to do it, but it works quite nice, responsive with 2.1 and loads to do.

i recommend installing apps2sd asap as the memory soon fills up on the phone.
#28
Good deal. Hot :)
#29
Well I have gone for one so will give it a try a few days then if ok will sell the desire.

Thanks op

I had a pulse and bought a Samsung Galaxy S to replace it. The Samsung is alot better but I don't think its the £350 better. The Pulse is such a good phone for the money and the one thing I do miss is the GPS, which is rubbish on the SGS, but on the Pulse never failed to get a signal.

Just beware that its half the processing power, half the ram and a much lesser screen. I've just started emulating playstation 1 games on mine and it needs the Froyo upgrade to do it successfully (should make it considerably faster again).

But if you dont really use it like a little handheld computer, you may be on to something. This looks like an incredible little phone for a hundred quid!!! Super hot.

To be honest I will use the gmail, calander and google navigation and then the camera and normal phone things so it should be fine and I wont worry about carrying a 300 quid device in my pocket lol.

I bought the Pulse last time it was £99 and it's been great, certainly with the new 2.1 firmware (both official T-Mobile one and FLB mod). It's by no means perfect but it's good value at this price and it's given me a taste for Android. I'll be getting a Samsung S come upgrade time.
#34
can't fault this phone, especially when running 2.1, love it!

I'd personally spend the extra £30 for the HTC Hero from 3....looking at some of the videos of this on Youtube (with 2.1) and it still looks quite sluggish. The calender app for example seems pretty slow...

I dont like the shape of the hero personally.

I've just looked on the 3 website and the hero is £160, where did you see them for £140?

Seems like the reviews all say battery life is really poor.

What a shame.

Its not brilliant but if you run task killer it lasts a lot longer. I charge mine every other day.I think its the same as with every android phone, its the apps that eat it up.

typing this on my pulse. - upgraded to android 2.1 recently and its now a brilliant phone - battery life has improved and its more stable and quicker. only downside is the poor camera.
