Thanks Janus

Forgot to mention Quidco in OP, which is now done.

Received my phone today - on the order form it said 4131 but the model I received as a 413. As far as I can tell it will receive SMS but not send them---Is that right or have they sent me the wrong model - I see the pic above says 413 on it?

Ordered 20:30 on 19th
Despatched yesterday
Arrived before 08:30 today (21st)

I've already got one of these (from microdirect). The batteries supplied were faulty but works fine when I replaced them with some energiser rechargables.

Donno the difference between 413 & 4131. May be they are the same. Googled for 413 & 4131 - both gave the same results

It clearly states 'With SMS'. I would definately take it up with them and push for either an equal version w/SMS or a discount. I have 2 on their way and if they both don't have SMS I will be doing exactly the same. Let me know how you get on.

Phoned up Philips and they say you cannot send SMS with this model, but can receive them. So it's not as good a deal as I thought!

not a bad wee phone.
nothing special but decent for £20
color screen is a bit of a joke

I received mine today, and have now email eBuyer to ask if they will either discount, or substitute this unit for a similar one with SMS sending capabilities.

I'll try to keep you updated.

Did any of you guys/gals hear back?
