does it have gps?
#5
I have a virgin contract for calls and three mobile internet. Any chance of using both with this phone?
#7
this sounds very cheap.
#8
Must... Hold... Out... For... HTC.... Dream...
#9
Having read the review, there was not much to moan about! Considering the review was written for the handset as being on contract, £99 seems very cheap! If all else fails, put it up on fleabay!
#10
If anybody wants to read the manual before buying, here it is.
#11
Apparentlly the phone is quite buggy and has problems. Read some of the threads here:

#12
Now i am being far too greedy and hopeful in thinking .... i wonder if the £50 cashback offer on Ubiq devices will apply aswell :-D


Just read that it doesnt unfortunately.
#13
http://www.modaco.com/content/503g-503g-modaco-com/266260/would-you-buy-one/

Seems to be very buggy and a fair few people wouldn't recomend it.

Seems Expansys are desperate to shift them.
#14
This phone is extremely buggy and the company stopped releasing new firmware updates. This is the reason for the huge price drop on eXpansys - it was almost £300 just a few days ago. I was almost ready to buy it a few days ago from another source, but I decided in the end that it's not worth the problem - you will not like all the problems associated with it.
#15
I was VERY tempted, like I was with the last Expansys dumping exercise recently, the Slingbox (Total junk, btw, and a waste of money, Freeview is at best only partially functional, despite it's claims!), but apart from the fact that the last time was a duff deal, & I won't buy from Expansys again; it is the lack of GPS that put me off most, and I will stick with my Dell Axim X30i for the time being for TomTom, as it would be integrated GPS that would be the big "upgrade" for me, I want a lot less loose bits lying around, this would mean one phone less, but still need a Bluetooth receiver :-(
#16
CEX give £94 cash or £156 exchange on this.

You could get a boxed Wii for £155 from CEX using the vouchers with a 12 month warranty. With CEX's rumoured liquidation, your 12 month warranty might be as much use as a chocolate teapot, but there's some potential profit there with this Wii or other electronics.

Cannot vouch for the 503 ,but I own both the 401 & the 501 and have had no problems with them . Fantastic phones .I have them both running TomTom 6 using a Holox BT reciver and I've just set up my 501 with e-mail using wi-fi . I've started to use the 501 more now as I like the qwerty keyboard but it lacks the features of the 401 .....................tv ,fm radio ,answering machine .tbh I never used the features anyway .

Dont know why everybody gives the thumbs down for not having GPS , having this running would just shorten the battery life anyway .The BT holox device certainly does the job and works well indoors and there quite cheap nowadys.

Anyone know if you can load more stable sortware onto this from a different system? Doubt this model will be popular with people who cook roms.

Regards

Barry

Added - Some horrible bugs on this model which have never been solved...Sounds like fun.... Will give this one a miss

I already HAVE a BT GPS receiver, but having all the bits and pieces isn't very handy, especially when I want to follow a walking route. As it is, in the car, I need to connect my phone via BT, and GPS (PDA) via an amplified holder, and this one BT connection for sound out AND sound from the GPS would ease connectivity problems for me. I am sure I would turn off a GPS receiver when not using as GPS, in the same way I don't leave Bluetooth switched on my ordinary phone - it guzzles power. When using for GPS in the car, the intention would be to run it on 12v adapter anyway.

If I am going to have bits and pieces of loose kit all over, I might as well forget the smartphone route & just stick with a mob phone, and buy a 55 quid Navigo from eBuyer to use for GPS with TomTom, but the attraction of smartphones is the single unit convenience. GPS is about the most used feature for Windows mobile devices, so it would have been more use if they had left the camera out instead!

So give this a miss then? Just have to wait the bit longer for the blackberry bold on O2.
#21
This looks like an excellent deal! I'm looking to upgrade my h4150 PDA which runs WinCE 2003. The main problem I have with my pda is that if the battery goes completely flat I need to reinstall all of my programs. Does anyone know if the same is likely to happen to this?
#22
I have a HP 4150 too, running tomtom v6, although it is not the quickest thing around now.
Would this phone from Expansys run the same version of tom tom OK, or would you need to get a 'smartphone' version (I am thinking as it runs Win Mobile 6 would you get aweay with it) ?
How does the screen display look on a screen which would be somewhat smaller than the iPaq 4150 - is it usable ?
Still in two minds whether to hit the 'buy' button...

Sounds like the internal battery is dead. Don't know how replaceable they are on HP
PDAs.
Good question though.... are smartphones generally the same?
#24
...and it is now 12.00pm and nobody has said they have purchased one of these. Has everyone been scared off ?

The battery is fine but if I let it run right down the pda loses everything in its memory. This is normal behaviour for this model of PDA running WinCE. I'm hoping that this smartphone doesn't have this problem :)
#27
My fingers are itchy....I have got an O2 Mini S...and I fancy a 3G phone.

Some people love them...some people hate them.......Arrgghhhhh...

My Dell PDA has an internal battery that allows you to change the battery, or will give a bit of leeway if you run the ordinary battery flat, and as long as you don't try to run it in that state, stops it fully closing down, as in a HARD reset.

Anyone found a way to apply the £10 off £20 voucher?
#30
Apparently you can't use it on this specific deal. Im still unsure as to whether to get this. And it's quite chunky as well according to reviews.

Even if it DOES apply, and you get confirmation of that, they WILL take the extra money, instead of contacting the purchaser or declining it. They did last time, but it will be the last time they do from me.

It has resulted in my ill-will, and as a buyer of lots' of techie products, none of them will be from Expansys again :-(

Got mine yesterday, ROM update applied & very pleased with it so far. Bargain!
