Following on from Sids81, i tried calling O2 today and was told that the phone is avaiable to order, but not for a handset upgrade yet. If i wanted to order it, they would have to charge me full price....how stupid is that.
I now have to phone back (sound familiar???) after lunch to see if their system has been updated.
Hope those that have received their phones are happy with it.
According to a Carphone Warehouse advisor who phoned me today, the F480 will not be released on T Mobile any time soon- I was actually told ‘at least 3 months’. But then again, he was eagerly trying to push me into taking up the phone on 02’s network as it is available.
Its interesting how you already have it ordered- it looks like sales assistants on many networks are spewing erroneous information
Woooooooohooooo i finally got the f480 :) just ordered it from o2 now i hope its next day delivery any one no if it is?
and im not sure what colour it will be hopee its black!
To all trying to contact o2 - Finally got through to them at about 19:30pm to try to upgrade to the Tocco - and at last it was on the system! recieved confirmation via e-mail it had been sent for dispatch too, which is a bonus. Shame it wasnt on before 4pm for next day delivery!
Nik C, 29 May 2008yes tmobile have them.. ordered mine finally... arriving 2mora! i hope i like it.. considering... morespoke to 3 different sales reps at t-mobile customer services who all say they havent got these to send out and dont have a release date yet. ...

e10sp, 29 May 2008From http://blog.phoneslimited.co.uk "Orange have today revealed their release date for the... morethe TOCCO is already available on orange at your local Carphone Warehouse and ladies and gents as a generic handset!!!!
thunderstorm, 29 May 2008they do them in carphone warehouse, got mine on orange today in store! you have to ask them it... moreDamn right...thunderstorm lol....and its a tough call secret vs F480... i love the secrets looks just as much as the 480 but i do like the secrets ui...the "entertainment sections of the phone are fully touch where general use is not... both fantastic phones. contract wise though the f480 is a cheeper pcm cost (off the top of my head), from 30 squids both 02 and orange..
Samsung f480 everytime Rob, Anything less than touchscreen is a step in the wrong direction at the moment i think!!
"Orange have today revealed their release date for the forthcoming Samsung F480, the UK network operator has confirmed that they will be stocking teh Samsung F480 now named the F480 Tocco from the 2nd week of June, that the week starting 02/06/08"
co-h i was in a similar situation to you, my voda contract is up mid june also. i think they may brand it with their crap i cant see any other reason. ive jumped ship to orange.
they do them in carphone warehouse, got mine on orange today in store! you have to ask them it wasnt out on shelves. came in yesterday apparantly :D
O2 website is currently unable to process online orders...hopefully when i call them again later they will have updated their system and can send me the phone.
Good luck to anyone else trying to get this handset.
yes tmobile have them.. ordered mine finally... arriving 2mora! i hope i like it.. considering i have never seen one!
thanks for the people who told me it finally arrived in tmob!
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.
Just found out that T-Mobile stores will get it in the next few days
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.
