I was going to get one till I read that if you drop them (and who never ever drops their phone?) then the screens go funny.

I never drop my phone.... Or my tele, laptop, or any electrical device I don't want to risk breaking

Can't that apply to any phone?

ordered but status says "Expected 3 Days" so id guess that 100+ stock is in fact not true.

I just bought one last night for the full amount.

I have just called CS and the lady said that I wuld have to pay to send it back and order it again. But she did say that she would talk to her manager regarding it.

Even if i re-order it and sent the other one back I would say £10 after postage

It shouldn't happen to this phone,

I think it's made from a mimetic poly-alloy which should rapidly recover from damage. The same liquid metal they built the T-1000 from.

I am really unhappy - I am waiting to her back from them. I did read on a forum that someone didn't know there was a voucher code and realised afterwards and they honoured it.

I can't believe that when I rang my parcel had been dispatched the hour before.

If you use collect+ you can send back for £5.

On another note whereabouts are you from in Can? My OH is from Winterpeg.

Does anyone know if one of the language choices on this phone is Russian??

Heres a review of the phone for anyone who is interested.

techradar.com/rev…iew

Winchman, i have the Acer Liquid Mini and Russian isn't avaliable on that phone. So it might not be on this one either.

Now that'sa spicy meatball ! (Ive got an Optimus 2x anyways)
Hot.

Yes it has Russian (I just checked on mine, which i got from expansys a few weeks back)

TBF, doesn't this apply to most phones ? Mind - Ive dropped my Optimus 2x half a dozen times no problem occuring.
It all depends what you drop it ON. Carpets, like me - OK - concrete, NOT OK

There is a much simpler way to do this if they wished too. All they have to do is let you keep the one you ordered and do a refund - resale and give you the differance back. Having to return one to get another is a nonsense.

Genius. But on a more serious note, the screen is plastic (rather than the shatterable glass of many phones), so is more resistant to breaking from dropping. On the other hand more scratchable - so I use a screen cover.

Got one last time but returned it as issues with signal reception and skype.

Still fuming, wrote a letter of complaint, thinking of refusing delivery so I dont have to pay for its return. I live in canada all my life in Edmonton ALB. but living in cardiff at the moment.

You have to send it back to France so it will cost more to send it back.

Just tell them you are choosing to exercise your right to cancel under DSR and will therefore be refusing any delivery. It is then up to them to arrange cancelation of delivery with their courier, or collection from their courier after you've refused the delivery. I suspect they may then choose to honour the lower price instead, assuming they have infact shipped the item.

(See page 22, section 3.35).

ordered-thanks OP

absolutely superb value @ 115. super smooth 2.3 rom, wi-fi b/g/n, 720p video. battery life is pretty average for an android of this spec, but not poor by any means. you'd be hard pushed to get anything better for around this price.

android.modaco.com/for…om/

for modding needs. tbh the stock 2.3 rom is good enough that the custom roms are based off it, with fairly minimal changes...removing junk apps, rooted, stock UI, overclocking/undervolting, etc. there is also a CM7 being developed for it too.

Are these sharp in the corners?, would hate that digging into me.

Phone again, they still refused to do anything until tomorrow, by that time this sale would have ended, will refuse delivery on this item and get the other one, if they dont refund, will open paypal dispute. gotta love paypal.

Bad customer service.

I ordered this phone about a month ago when it was on offer then, and the screen was funny when it arrived! I sent it back and it came back "repaired" only the problem was still there. So I sent it back again and I'm currently waiting for a replacement. Alot of hassel because they use DHL to deliver and collect only during working hours. Had to take time off work. Not impressed.

My OH had to get a new screen at xmas took just over 3 weeks as it went funny, they replaced it free and paid postage both ways. Then on Sunday the phone kept crashing so we had to do a hard reset which loaded up old android, its working fine now but havent updated it yet

Daylight robbers - I bet they have been reading this thread.

Nice ordered for the Mrs for her birthday

Showing 130 squids now??

It said on the website, only until 5pm, so seemed like a 1 day sale.

Not an Iphone so hot from me.

expired.

Well, the CS operative said she would get back to me by email - sadly not

I think I will take the knock on this one. Just fuming because I was contemplating this for a week knowing that at some point there would be a deal on it.

Got the phone and the 16gb class 10 memory card for £135 + quidco + 5% CC cashback. All-in-all not too bad of a deal.
