Thanks for that, Bakaboy. However, if your system shows you have none and your website has taken the phone down altogether, what inpiration leads you to believe they are due in? This is not a rude question - just a question from an intended purchaser. They are indeed available from O2 and from T-mobile but as I wanted one for my Orange PAYG sim card and Orange are not intending to sell them, a SIM free phone from yourselves is my only answer.
Just bought one myself, and it's just schweet! Great keypad, awesome screen and the UI is great too, so easy to use. No sign of any issues yet, volume sounds good and the radio is really great to listen to! Recommended folks!
I bought it yesterday and, till, now, I have no problems at all.
It looks and feels great, quite slim design, the screen is wonderful and it works preety well... all in a very small and stylish phone.
I do recomend it.
I work for the Carphone Warehouse, the phone should be arriving soon, the system shows that we have zero in the warehouse meaning that it should be here soon!
Now I believe T-Mobile had some sort of exclusive on this handset as they have the phones already, which is why I got it when getting a contract with them!
If you have any questions about the phone, just ask and I'll try my best to answer them!
for those who are in the philippines..
its also available at SM Cebu
BSD international- P15,100
RC Goldline- P14,690
all with warranty, i think...
I sent an email off to CW last week asking what had happened and they haven't even had the courtesy to reply.
I ordered one of these from Brisbane a few days ago and now the store tells me that Nokia is no longer releasing this model into Australia. I have fired off an email to Nokia Customer Support to hopefully find out what's going on. Will post again when they reply....could be a while.
one of my friends work at an online call centre for 02 in scotland and told me there had been probs and they might be recalled. It would explain my probs but mine is working fine now (5th time lucky) so i dont really want a call asking me to give it back!!
Exactly my situation....
I put a back-order with CPW after seeing it on their site, then they took it off and none of their staff know anything about it.
It is still I assume on order for me but nobody has contacted me about it.
Wonder what has happened??
I put in an order for this phone at Carphone Warehouse after reading about it on their site and on GSM. Now, it has been taken off their site altogether which suggests that there has indeed been a recall. Noone at CW knows the reason for the sudden disappearance and my email to them went unanswered. Yes another Nokia with problems, just like the 6280?
I agree with everyone that the phone is great, but battery is a bit weak, in reference to the earlier post where did you hear the phone was being recalled??
Got told yesterday a lot of these phones are being recalled (which would explain the problems ive had and the 5 handsets - although the latest one has been going over a week and no problems yet touch wood) Anyone else heard about this?
The battery life isnt great (in answer to someones question) but i thought it was the fact i am CONSTANTLY on my phone!!! maybe its not? But all phones ive had i have needed to charge everyday anyway so its no big deal to me - i talk a LOT!
was wondering if anybody knows if there is a desktop charger available for this phone to charge the phone AND a spare battery at the same time....?
Seems this is one solution to the poor battery life (by carrying a spare battery) as all other features on the phone seem great
i love this handset i cant believe how cool it looks, and the screen is awesom, far better then any nokia phone i have ever had!!!
