this phone is old~ out for almost 1 year.... should have a look on the Sharp 905~ a wide screen.... much better... ashame that no one actually cracked the phone for outside of japan use as yet... not like the toshiba 904T that i used to have... the software is far more sophsticated than any other brands, the jap softwares rarely has any problem with bugs...
dude is crazy the phone is not available yet in the uk. I have had the gx10 and gx30 and both were very reliable and dude has had the gx10,gx30 and 903 and she is very happy with them to think i have to put up with her wrong infomation every day as i live with her.
dude wanted to know when it is available in the uk as my w800i has just broken and i am desperate for a new phone.
The best quality phone you'll ever find on the market. Totally reliable. Are availiable in the UK yet? Apr07
japanese phones are waaaay advance than the phones we currently have in the market!
Why don't they invest outside of japan,am sure they're gonna be the best!
i know the exact price bcoz im in hk...but ask "Harlekkin" as he is a the perfect professional of Sharp mobiles as he is not using any of these mobiles....`
480x640 screen refers to resolution of the screen.
sharp 903 and many others are 240x320.
the only difference is pixel count and how far they are spread out from eachother and how big/small the pixels actually are. 640x480, however, produces a better picture.
So frierich+milky does that mean its not gona be available in the uk for ages? im gutted was due 4 a upgrade, it looks brill sharp i luv you.
@ Friedrich & Milky
You guys look at all this way too shallow.
Vodafone Group and Vodafone KK are under two separate managements of course.
The reason why the 904SH is not available in Europe is due to its specs.
There are no VGA models available, so to speak there would be no VGA content (most commonly QVGA).
Europe does not have any systems in place to handle IC transactions via Felica.
This models is way too advanced at this stage and was not suitable for release.
And only because Vodafone is part shareholder of Verizon does not mean it IS Verizon.
the plaza usually dun accept trade in....u have to sell it outside the plaza first...
Im a big fan of sharp fones, ive had gx 10 20 30 903 which is brill so easy to use especialy for a bloke, please tell me why vodafone dont know when there going to get em ? im dying to know
to the guy below me regarding the Sincere plaza in HK....which store is trustable because i am also considering to buy the water product of TX80 from toshiba...my mom will go back to hk this summer and she can buy it for me.....also do they also do trade-in? cux i have the w810i and dont want it anymore
I absolutely agree with you.
Sharp 904 (WCDMA/GSM roaming) phone is very similar to Verizon's old Samsung SCH-a795 ( CDMA phone with GSM roaming capable but without a sim card).
Get out of the market-you piece of scam!!
Regarding buying mobile at 'Sincere' in HK, this is the place famous for selling mobile directly imported. I have purchased several mobile phones a year from this place and trustable. However, buying this mobile still facing unlockable as so far no one could unlock the IC inside.
Ou of all Vodafones (=Verizon Wireless) B.S. games, Sharp 904 crosses all the limits:
The phone that is GSM capable is impossible to use with GSM carrier (not unlockable!) WOW!- Vodafone will not stop at anything!
LOGICAL QUESTION FOLLOWS:
What is the GSM in this phone for?
Only for Rich Japanese dudes who travel to
europe and the Sharp 904 simply will roam through GSM carriers so the huge $$$$$ will fall into Vodafone's pockets!)
Vodafone=Verizon Wireless (they own the Verizon wirelss part, if anyone didn't know)
thus no wonder that Both companies always disable the phone's features (to rip off people with roaming, downloading and other crap!!)
UNTIL SHARP PHONE BELONG ONLY TO VODAFONE, they are dead for me! Not available, no use for them!
Sure you don't mean the 705SH / SX633?
That one is available via Smartone, but the 904SH maybe available there...just not unlocked.
this fone is available in Hong KOng for quite awhile now. one place for sure i know where to get the phone is in Mong kok...at a plaza called "Sincere" but people say their phones are not trustable.
i told u,Harlekkin ,. this phone will be locked forever, u didnt believe me.....haha.... i was right all the time
