With all due respect, the ‘prices’ for this phone SIM Free and a rough indication of the phones prices on one or two phone networks has been posted numerous times. Perhaps it’d help if you go back a couple of pages.
‘Bebo’? he hee. Its ‘Bobo’ (but I am aware I spelt your name previously with a ‘c’ in it). But yes, I did speak to someone from T Mobile on the 18th of May (Sunday) and was told that T Mobile would be doing it. However, I spoke to T Mobile today (20th of May) and I was told that they weren’t certain. To be honest, I think the confusion is coming from their end.
Just spoken to CPW and apparently they have the phones in their warehouse, however they are still waiting for the software to be loaded onto them?? They said it is likely to be next Monday before they are released for sale.
I hope this phone is worth the wait!! I am now going to be phone-less as of tomorrow so I hope they don't delay it for much longer!
Have you spoken to someone at Tmobile about this phone being released? as they listed the up and coming phones to me and the f480 wasnt on it. Also a sales advicer told on (via 150 customer services) this wasnt going to be released, but they can do a deal with carphone warehouse to get it direct from them..
If going on tmob, brilliant, any idea when they will be bringing on tmob, as tmob are always last with handsets..
So it seems that Orange are bringing this phone out (they really need to update the employies as i went into the store and they didnt know about it and also the same situation over the phone!) but orange have now added it to their "coming soon" list. Now just to wait and see how long it will actually take to be released!
I already have it! It is easy to use. Works as I expected and more. I love this phone!
And knowing HTC’s reputation, the HTC Diamond will have lagging videos, and a lagging non responsive interface. Trust me- I have their MDA Vario III branded HTC TyTNII which was advertised as the best thing since sliced bread. Guess what- it isn’t!
Why don’t you take a look at the Class action against HTC which many disgruntled users of HTC devices have come together to form. Also take a look at www.xda-developers.com in the Kaiser section and see the complaints about HTC. Are you aware that thousands have signed a petition so HTC can provide the relevant drivers on their device?
What you don’t understand is that not all of us want a device with all the latest features. Some of us want practical features which are suffice; such as a 5MP camera and 8GB storage, a radio and not expendable things like wifi that the average person who holds down a job or academic life does not have the time or opportunity to use. Moreover, some of us actually care about SIZE. Many HTC devices packed with features are CHUNKY and unfashionable. P.S- I personally dislike the look of the Touch Diamond. It looks like a throwback from the 80’s- all straight lines and no curves!
HTC= Bad user experience
why is anyone even bothering wih this phone now that the HTC Touch Diamiond has been announced? and given Samsung's track record the Diamond will probably be released first!
Which of these 2 phones are way better?
Samsung F480 which is this fone?
I am considering these 2 phones now and which one do you all prefers??
I love camera (3mp and above), SMS, loud ringtone, 3G, Video and long battery life. Only these important features I am into!! So, please, do help me to consider which of these two phones are the best for me!!
I just wish if once this fone being released and people buy them for the sake of their needs, I am a bit concerned what if this fone do have many disadvantages and how can I supposed to buy them then? So, I am still thinking should I get this fone OR Iphone Apple?
I have been chasing this phone for about a month now. I spoke to Carphone warehouse this morning, who have none in stock and dont know a release date (even tho website says today). Also t-mobile arent releasing this phone on their network. Unless anyone knows different??
Spoke to Carphonewarehouse and Mobiles.co.uk today about the release date. Neither of them had any idea about the release date and carphonewarehouse said their are none in stock and they dont have any movement in stock either.
I also rang O2 and they said that it would be on sale on the 28th of May. The phone will be free on a £35 p/m contract for 18 months based on a new order (not sure about upgrades). Play.com also has the phone ready for pre-order with an expected shipping date of 30/05/2008. So I am guessing it will be out at the end of the month
It looks like you will have to wait till the end of May. How pitiful is it that the iphone’s prices were given well before it was launched, whereas the Samsung F480 is due to be launched in a couple of weeks yet still so little information on pricing exists?!
i was talking about contract, thanks.
i just cant seem to find any pricing on it :-S
Guess i will wait until the end of may!
Are you talking about Sim free or contract prices for the Samsung F480? If you’re talking about contract, I know that the Samsung F480 will be similar in price to the Samsung Soul on the T Mobile network. For example, I recently spoke a T mobile advisor who informed me that on a 12 month contract on flext 25, the phone will cost roughly £149. Obviously on a 18 month contract, it will be much cheaper.
oh ok thank you, that is what i read on a website! do you know the sites with the prices for this phone?
Carphonewarehouse have not yet released this phone despite their website advertising the 19th of May as their release date. I spoke to them this morning and they confirmed this. As for other retailers stocking this phone, who knows...
The Samsung F480 has not been assigned to Vodafone alone. Even if you were to do a quick google search, you’d see that 02 are already citing prices for this phone on contract.
vodafone said it will be out 5-7th June. I heard it was a Vodafone only Phone.
