Spoke to Vodafone customer services and they are giving 5th June as available date
Vodafone are releasing this phone with an estimated release date of July 3rd. It is an amazing phone!
Tmobile have finally got a date.. next monday (26th).
Pricing still not on system.
This phone is incredible. I like it! but that external memory -.-'' why it's locked? :S That's the only stupid thing from this phone.
Thanks for the update on T Mobile. Yep, it looks like they are doing this phone. However, because I don't desire to be on contract, I will not be purchasing the 480 from T Mobile.
I will keep you informed if I hear anything. As for pricing, although no exact price has been given, I've been told it's pricing will be simmilar to the Samsung Soul
So they Will be relaunching it tommorrow then and any Idea what the new Name will be. I have heard from a friend inside O2 that it could be called the Samsung Roxy
Even thought this does sound incredable girly it still will not put me off(I currently own a Prada cant get girlier than that). Looking forward to this launch with eager anticipation
PS In case you were wondering i am a bloke
So apparently they are having a big launch of this phone but with a new name, so it is not confused with F490 - I have heard that it is 22nd May they are due to relaunch it, so will be available on contract/to buy in about 4 weeks!! gutted! :-(
I spoke with Tmobile yesterday, its on their system but no pricing or release date!
Annoying, but good news, as they werent going to be releasing it 2 months ago.
Let me know if you find any more info.
Vodafone Holland will get the phone the last week of this month, great phone
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
