@ yan xiao yan : i forgot to tell you that the ebay seller i bought my flipout from offers free shipping through UPS. the tax imposed on the phone was so reasonable it suprised me. you can call UPS first if you want to get an idea of the amount you'll be charged.
@yan xiao yan : bought mine from a reliable eBay Hong Kong seller. Their business is an online cellphone store and they already have 12000++ positive feedback. Got my flipout the day after I paid for it.

Very poor battery performance. I got 10 hours of purely 2G standby. Maybe not battery issue, the phone feels warm, might be the software issue.
hi! can anyone tell me where can i buy this phone at a good price and ships it to philippines? thanks!
I've had one of this model for a week, took a while to find an unlock code for it, but it's done now :)
The phone works fine :D Very nice quality, the keypad is excellent for me, i hate most keypads but need them for gaming & txting, types very fast with no lag, I use HANDCENT-SMS from the Android market instead of the built-in txt program.
The camera is very good quality in the right light, despite being a fixed focus type. As long as its steady, and the subject is lit normally, you will get vibrant colour & enough detail for most use. It's a 3.15 cam, with no flash/focus. Note that it takes a bigger photo if the keypad is Open, otherwise you get a kind of smaller portrait/landscape picture instead.
As usual, there are much better utilities for photos on the Market downloads for free :) Try LittlePhoto & Photo.Lab for some excellent fun.
Battery life ? well these are all mini computers now, so you WILL be charging up daily if your using it for lots of things. just accept that phone batteries are a bonus feature now, and no matter what a phone costs, its battery is made to go flat in use (or not).
The screen is lower quality than it should be :( that's a disappointment for some things, such as weird software like ZED EX (a ZX81 emulator I use). Text can be a bit blurry in some apps/games, but 95% of things are fine, you wont even notice. Apparently the screen is only 256k colours, less than the higher quality/resolution other phones around, but considering its size and functions, Im not complaining, it's doing just fine for me.
Touch screen is highly responsive, bright & clear. You can make apps respond faster by turning off the ANIMATION option in display settings. It may look neat at first, but speed for menus is what most users seem to prefer, I know I do.
Wifi is Very fast, and easy to activate on/off, and the phone has had no problem connecting to several routers near me.
The DOLPHIN browser seems better than the built-in one, and that's free too. Plus there is Dolphin ad-ons for everything you could need.
Audio on the Flipout phone is loud and clear, and external noise cancelation is excellent. It's a weird thing that you 'must' open the handset keypad to take/make phone calls, but i guess the mouthpiece on such a small phone - they had no choice :)
All in all, i recommend this model of phone, and so far, give it a good 7 out of 10. Would have been 8 or 9 with a better camera, and slide-down keypad instead - the flipout idea is novel, but a bit fiddly with one hand.
A recommended model of phone, I like this one :)
Alan, 29 Mar 2011Where can I download Skype and MSN?
ThanksUse the Android Market application built in to the phone, and if you search for SKYPE, it should appear at the top of the list - there's only 1 version of Android skype so far.
As for MSN, theres several there you could try, I use EBUDDY, which you dont need to download, you can just use a browser to go to www.ebuddy.com
hope that helps a bit.
