Amazing deal I think for a 3.5G quad band, wifi, builtin GPS/radio, touchscreen Windows Mobile Phone. 2MP camera and video output
Full qwerty keyboard, very high spec and quality built phone from a decent retailer.

Seems like a new phone, other retailers selling for £100s more. Availability states 5 days on eXpansys website.

Full spec on link, too much to list. Tempted to buy!

Not in stock but they are expecting stock in 5 days. You can buy it and they will take payment when sent only.

From previous experience, if a product is listed but availability states 30 days or 99 days @ eXpansys then they won't be getting any new stock, so this one may be a go-er.

£300

Im in 2 minds about ordering?

tempting, what do you think guys?, spec is good, normally retails at £300 to £400

You might want to google this company before parting with your money... poor customer service and people receiving returned/B grade goods when ordering 'new' appears to dominate customers reviews... no personal experience of them, just what I noticed from a google search. I am sure you are sensible enough to form your own opinions.

the screen resolution isn't as high as previous models, but that in turns gives better battery life, which is more important to me

Google's cached page from 9th August lists this as Discontinued so I wouldn't get over excited.

i think i will give it a miss because of expansys' reputation

I am going for a couple.. for me and for resale.. if it is permitted to mention that....

I disagree, I have previously bought from eXpansys and the service has been good, I had a query and there was a direct customer service number where the agent was friendly and helpful. eXpansys retails internationally and they stock almost every telecom item available. Their UK number is answered 24 hours Mon-Fri.

But I agree that you should form your own opinions, it is my experience that eXpansys is a very large trustworthy retailer with good customer service.

can you let me know if any of you receive this please. i cant be bothered to take a punt, as i dont want to sign up to the website, and order, only to find out in a few days it has gone, and i have registered my details for nothing. thank s

That's pretty much the laziest thing I've seen on here, talk about wanting jam on it:x

This seems a good deal on paper.

The only reason I won't be going for it is the size of the handset. Looking at the dimensions it is around 50% thicker than a E71.

Fantastic price!

I bought a couple of Toshiba phones from them a few month ago (they had a £10 off per order promotion back then). Ordered around lunch time and got them delivered next morning, even so I picked the cheapest delivery option. :thumbsup:

lol, i apologise, i knew if i said 'i cant be bothered' that i might get hurled abuse at.
I simply meant that i would like to know if i had taken a chance, it would have been worth it. and also more importantly would know of the credibility of the company for future reference. theres no way that there will be any left in stock in a few days if the company do deliver, so im not gonna order it then, i just wanted to know of peoples experience with expansys. im sorry if i sounded like a lazy bum, that wasnt my intention. :oops:

nope mate needs to be 2100 utms and it aint was gonna buy one myself while my G1 gets repaired but as im on 3 its a nogo

Its now gone up to 8 days expected wait.
If this was in stock it would be VERY hot, the fact that its not and that the due date is rising daily isnt a good sign.

Ordered mine.. Fingers crossed it will be delivered.

PLUS the fact that on EVERY other phonethey have Paypal checkout yet with this one it is mysteriously vanished!! Mmmmmmm.

These have been discontinued and orders will NOT be fulfilled..

Expired.

Where does it say that? I can still add to basket?

The bottom line is that a lot of jerks that use this site. They decide arbitrarily that something is unavailable despite the evidence suggesting otherwise and expire things. Or they vote cold because they do not like the product. How does that affect how good the deal is? Or they demand proof of purchase when they frankly have no right to any such thing. Posting here is not entering into a contractual arrangement.

If the user profile of this site had a mental age, it would be around 3.

read some reviews and this phone has a lot of problems. numerous customers have posted comments about freezing up/stalling

Thats a bit harsh.
possibly true, but genuinely not in this case

Im sure Expansys used to let you pay and collect ? shame... I only live round the Jack Horner :x

Come come now you exaggerate.................it would be more like 2yrs old.

Have dealt with this company before - sold me imported goods which when faulty (within a few days) could not be repaired in the uk. Customer Service was non existent - surprising considering the Dragon's Den connection.
