I can vouch for M2YD cash back, very reliable. Never had any problems. I phoned them when i received my check back form and asked about when to send in bills etc. Honest and very helpful also as edi mentioned they give you 60 days! Pretty sweet if you ask me!
Good find Edi O_O :-D

Good price for a good phone. Lots of free apps for it out there too. Voted hot

Thanks guys

Forget not to cancel the FREE insurance on time else you've to pay £5.99 / month.

They had this deal a couple of months ago. Worth getting IMO.

Had this phone and hated it. It's v cool at first but then you start stumbling over silly glitches - poor memory card handling, restrictions on the numbers of contacts, no voice control so you can't use it in the car, the Bluetooth won't talk to BMW systems, the shortcuts can't be customised, etc etc. is a great website full of helpful users but they have been waiting for a firmware revision ever since this phone was rushed out last year to sell on the coat-tails of the iPhone...

You can even use it to access the Internet thanks to its 3G technology.

The sad thing is this is still cheaper for a 12 month contract than it is for me to finish the remaning ~6 months of my contract, and I only took it out for this very same mobile :-(

truly a great phone i know someone who had both this and the iphone and he said he preferred this!
so yeah,:w00t:

great deal heat added!

Deleted.

does it normally comes unlock? thnaks

Is this company to be trusted to honour cashback deals? After all, many companies have reneged and failed to stump up the cash. Anybody got any information here?

camera and video aside, this is NO iphone killer. I have an iPhone and the gf had this one for all of a day and sent it back yesterday. ordered an iPhone for today after seeing tip on here last night

My goodness me, that phone looks ugly. So what if it has a 5megapixal camera, it looks like **** imo and what a tiny screen. Really impractical and I wouldn't trust this company with cashback with a bargepole.

What a wierd phone that is too, it looks more like a camera that has added phone functionality.

the numerical keys shown are being displayed on the touch screen.....cant comment on cashback...waiting for my claim forms!

dude.. the screen includes the numberpad... the whole thing is touch screen like when you go into the menu the number pad goes away and the rest of the screen is displayed.... the screen is as big as the iphones.

my gf had one too and sold it but i must say it looks impressive in real life.

What if they go bust part way through your contract?
You might be left with a big bill!

i got this phone 3 weeks ago & I love it, having had Ericsson's previously. Yeah it could have more custom features but if you want a cheap alternative to an iphone go for this one. It plays Divx movies & you can convert them to a small file size. If you don't like it you can always flog it for a profit.

Oh...and the camera is the dogs [email protected]@cks.

Does this have a version number, or is it simply called "Viewty"? Just been on the website and it looks like a really good phone viewty.lgmobile.com/

What does it mean by "Clearance" though? And is the cashback guaranteed if you get the bills off at the appropriate time?

Been looking for a new mobile for months now and this seems great for the price. As for all the negative comments regarding it - is ANY phone without it's faults/glitches?

your a fruit, the screen size isnt that big ITS BIGGER, the pic above its showing you with the touchscreen keypad.. dont knock it tell you`ve tried it...

It's received a tiny fraction of the hype of the iPhone, yet in so many ways this is the phone that the iPhone wants to be. The touchscreen user interface is much more than just a novelty, and unlike the iPhone the Viewty brings the very latest technology too. We love it!



LG Viewty is hugely under-rated.

People that pick up the phone that has so many features and use it for a day and go, "meh its ****", have no clue.

The tiny screen you refer to is currently displaying a keypad on its touch sensitive screen. :whistling:

At last.... A thread about a proper phone. Not a MP3 playing toy one.

It's OK, but they really need to work on the interface. A touchscreen interface is really kinda tricky to pull off well - SonyEricsson have been at it for years and still haven't got it right, and Nokia have barely tried.

This is an interesting phone, but ultimately not a great one.

pmsl! :w00t:

ok lets leave the guy alone now.... easy mistake to make if you live in the 1870's

Please excuse my ignorance here, but how does this deal actually work ?

Do you pay nothing for 6 months ? then you send of a £45 payment & another £45 at 8,10 & 12 months ?

Do they then give you 25% of the total 4 payments ???? or is it something totally different where you have to pay £45 each month !

Hope im not the only one a bit confused ! seems like a good deal though

Welcome to HUKD DanGem365

This deal works by cashback. i.e. you'll pay £40 every month for 12 months to Voda network (in return for 500 x-net minutes & 500 texts every month & a free handset). Starting from month 6, you need to submit claims (£90 x 4 claims) to get £360 back from the retaier (not Voda). This is equivalent to 9 months Free in a 12 month contract. Net term cost is (£480 - £360 cashback) £120. Go via ]Quidco for another £45 cashback.

You have 60 days from the date of each 'relevant' bill to submit the claims and always send claims by recorded delivery.

Could anyone tell me do they come unlock from M2YD? thanks

I bought a clearance phone (Viewty) from them on Orange and it was not unlocked. The phone is easy to unlock though. Check the ku990.co.uk Wiki for 2 straightforward methods, although be careful as you might be voiding the warranty and you risk bricking the phone if you don't follow the instructions exactly.

This is a fair question in my view. Can anyone verify that this company has the financial strenght to offer this deal? This is a key consideration to take into account before entering this deal. Any info ?????

What a sick deal ... if only I could order

edi ...many thks for this. However, going via quidco offers a much inferior cashback option (unless I'm doing something wrong). Would you please check it out?

What is this company like for cash back?
Are they reliable ,can anyone else vouch for them?
