Bought one from eXpansys, loved it but wouldn't connect to any mobile providers. I, nor eXpansys could repair it and they told me they don't have any for replacement.

If anyone has one laying around or if you've upgraded to something else, I'd like to take it off your hands

dude are you crazy?

This is a bloody awful phone. There are loads of problems with it, and having used it for a month to review it, I can honestly say, its the worse phone I've ever used.

I'm aware of the software issues, but flashing it to unofficial 3.10 fixed the slowdowns and other nonsense!

I wish I could find a QWERTY HSDPA 320x256 smartphone for a decent price.

Expansys told me they had no stock and they'd give me a refund - just checked their site and they DO have stock, be it for almost £100 more than I paid 2 weeks ago! (I paid £85ish).

Gutted.

TGB - didn't use the unofficial firmware (it wasn't available at the time), so have no idea on that. Good luck to you if you have your heart set on it. I can try and see if I can get someone at expansys to sort it for you if you like?

PM me your order number if you wanna give it a go.


Thanks for the reply -- yep I wouldn't use it with the official rom as it seemed rather sluggish, 3.10 seemed to fix a lot but unbelivably MWg doesn't want anything to do with it! They really seemed to have washed their hands of the majority of their devices, just leaving eXpansys to pick up the pieces.

Gonna PM you my order number... I don't know how well you know Expansys - been speaking to a guy called Dave about my order, he's already issued a refund as they didn't have any replacement stock to sort me out with. I would still (foolishly? ;) ) jump at the opportunity of having another one at this price though.:thinking:

Basically my problem was that the phone couldn't connect to any mobile networks. It could scan and see they were there but wouldn't latch on to any of the SOBs (tried with lots of sims). I reflashed, checked IMEI, did everything logical I could think of and no luck... Sent it to Expansys who had the same result and couldn't get it repaired.

If there was another qwerty device which supported HSDPA and had a standard screen resolution for under £200+ I'd be all over it, but from what I can gather this is the best I'll get for my money. I have to say hardware wise I was rather impressed with the 503g, MWg should have just (officially) sorted everything else out.

Hey,

I just know someone who knows someone (and I'll PM you the link to the reviews too). Just so you know, the review device I had did at least connect to Orange! so at least you know at least one out there works!

I'll will do what I can with expansys, but wouldnt get your hopes up. Have forwarded it on to for you anyway.
