Vodafone still sticking to early July for a release date. The reason "we need to put the phone through our own checks" (dont you mean rebrand it with the vodafone logo and mess about with the software) My contract is up in the middle of June and dont know whether to jump ship to someone else or hold fire as the tariff im on with voda is a good one for £20 im getting 150 mins /250 texts/ carry over mins / stop the clock/ virtual passport etc ...and i know i will get this phone for free when threating to cancel where i'll have to pay for the handset with another provider on a similar priced tariff as they only give it free with £30+ tariffs. So looks like i'm going to have to wait on Voda catching up with everyone else.
Visited the t-mobile shop and CPW today saw the phone close up looks great they have it in stock and t-mobile say they will have it in the shops next tues/wed.
Newbie!! You might have a point there mate, they could be saying it as it is just an upgrade rather than a new contract (new contract--probs new customer) but have you spoken to the same person or a different one? or try just calling and saying that you are a new customer to see what they say regarding stock. I ordered mine yesterday from the 02 shop and it was online so it better had come tommorow or i'll be marching in there for some answers! quick question anyone:::how do i get the 'track your order' thing to work on the o2 website???
Can anyone tell me, does it got camera in the front?
or just the one at the back?
Maybe newbie but when i phoned yesterday about upgrading etc he couldnt find it at first on system then when he did he didnt say whether it was in stock or not yet, just that i cant upgrade early :( there mean! i can pay and cancel my contract costing £75 and start new contract with new number but i cant pay to finish early and upgrade! doesnt make sense to me so il have to wait.
Following on from my last post, do you guys feel that O2 may be making me wait as it is a handset upgrade and not a new contract?
When i explained that the website shows the handset as 'In Stock' they just fob me off saying their system hasn't been changed yet.
Again, this is so frustrating because its such a good handset.
If you buy the phone on 02 dont get it from carphone warehouse, get an online 02 contract from the online store, £30 for 200mins & 400textx on 12 month contract with phone free. Carphone warehouse will make u buy the phone on this deal! cant wait for the phone but July is my upgrade :*(
I ordered mine from O2 online yesterday am - I paid £9.99 for next day delivery b4 10am - however I didn't receive any confirmation of my order so I called O2 and they said they had my order but the phone was out of stock!! He said call tomorrow for an update - then at about 6 last night I had a text from them saying that my phone had been despatched and it was delivered first thing this morning! so am very happy - the phone is just as good as I had anticipated! Love it!! don't worry guys, it is worth the wait so just hold out for a few days longer! :-)
Having spoken to O2 5 times now, I keep getting told that there stock system hasn't been updated and to try again tomorrow.
Its a shame that such a good phone has to go through crap phone companies who just keep passing the buck!!!
Ordered my F480 from O2 on Wednesday and just received it
First impressions are absolutely fantastic, Interface works great & haptic feedback is good and the Widgets are a blast
Jas, 29 May 2008Got mine from vodafone yesterday...named the F490....The F490 is a different phone
Anonymous, 28 May 2008Just spoke to vodafone about an upgrade, and they say they will have it on 4th July. Got mine from vodafone yesterday...named the F490....
its now out on t mobile but you have 2 ring up and ask for it because its not in their site yet. just got mine sent 2 me next day delivery.
does anybody know how well or how bad this phone would function if i were to buy it unlocked for use in the U.S? to my understanding the only frequency it can pick up in the US is the 1900mhz and i was wondering if anybody knows about how good/bad the coverage is without the 850mhz to back it up. also if coverage is okay i'm curious as to what other bugs to watch out for (some people tell me perhaps features such as internet may be very slow or even nonresponsive, incoming text messages show no sender name, etc.) if anybody can give any sort of info it would be greatly appreciated! thanks!
Hi guys, i saw on here that someone had trouble ordering the phone yesterday however i went into my local o2 store and none of them knew what the phone was or never heard of it, however, they found it on their online shop for me and ordered it on an 18 month contract for £35 i get 1000 txts, 600 mins and unlimited internet, which is pretty sweet lyk, also they said that their next delivery would be next Tuesday and the phone would not be in-store before then! Anyone have this phone on here yet? could you please tell me how good the browser is please......Google maps? Youtube?
just had a play with it, i love it. due an upgrade in aug and this just jumped to the top of the list........
Just spoke to o2 (again) re: my upgrade as i was told to call back today - and the phone is still not on the stock list, and still under 'coming soon' - even though its showing as in stock and available at o2 online - you would have thought to avoid confusion they would have updated the Online store and the stock lists at the same time, to save wasted phone calls!
get my upgrade on 9th june cant decide between the f480 or the viewty which i have tried and like cant decide this looks a very good phone idiots at 02 wont let me upgrade a week early so annoyed!!!!
Just been in to Carphone and had a play on this phone and i loved it, not only does it feel nice to hold but when you use it feels like you are pushing true key pad with the vibrating on the phone. all in all i cant wait for my upgrade, as they have them in store and can sell them on Orange and O2 for free at £30... I loved the way the phone looked for things on bluetooth as well....
Bobo, 28 May 2008Rob,
Knowing 3, they either won’t stock this phone because it is too high end and pricy for... moreThanks Bobo, i was hoping that wouldn't be the reply though! I will still try my luck as when i mentioned it to the guy in the shop he seemed to think there wouldn't be a problem with 3 stocking it soon, but he said that to get a sale probably!
Cant wait to get my hands on it to see if it lives up to the pictures and write-ups!
