not that i want to let you guys down but i went to o2 they said the phone has been delayed for another 3 weeks, but the good news is carphone warehouse have got the phones in stock TODAY!!!
I don't think it's the delay that hacking people off...it's the fact that everytime you ring o2 you never get a straight answer and everyone tells you something different. I've now been promised that they're in stock and that mine should come tomorrow from them but not holding much hope.
There are really some people who think they know it all on this site. I spend less than 30 pounds a month and threaten to change networks if i had to pay 49.99 for the k8ooi on O2. People you seem to forget there are loads of mobile companies out there, they dont want to lose your business. it's far easyier to keep you paying a bill for 12 months and to give you the phone for free than lose you altogether. So just so we are clear i spend less than 30 pounds a month and have the k800i on o2 for free. Yes Free and all because i threaten to change networks.
for all you whingers re the k800i - do people seriously not understand how things work for mobile phone companies???
they are given a date by the mobile phone provider, sony ericsson in this case. this is the release date that o2 then give to the customers. if sony ericsson fail to meet that date, what else can o2 do??? and as for reducing the cost of the phone just because you say you are going to disc...thats b0llocks! what you get depends on your average monthly spend! so if you spend over £50 a month, yeah, you'll get it. otherwise, stop being a cheap-@rse
Have just rung voda after seeing comments on this site, was origionaly told to ring on 7th July. Phone is now in stock, they wanted 138 quid but I pestered them and now it's FOC. Delivery tomorrow. Cheers guys!
NO EDGE!!!!!!! what a shame! i was thinking of getting it. but now i won't.
At last!!...a real and honest answer!...just had an e-mail from a guy at o2 who's been trying to help me find the truth. It seems that everyone who's pre-ordered the k800i will have a delivery date of sometime in the first week in July and could be up to the 10th. So all their talk of 26 June delivery that they promised me was a load of bull, just as i thought!! It will be out on orange by then so i know what i'm going to do!
in reference to people slagging off O2 sales staff shut your face we are not up our backsides just doing a job like everyone else and we CAN NOT change the price of the handset i dont know where people have got this from if u dont like O2 thats fine but dont try and blag us into changing the price because refusal often offends if we could believe me we would we'd get loads more deals and commision obviously if u look at other networks you would see that our deals are the best on the market Great Phone By The Way
hey everyone just so you know i ordered my K800i and was going to pay the 49.99 asking fee by O2. I then called back a couple of hours later and just said to them id seen it on another network for free is there anything they can do. Ive now got the phone for free. My message to you all is DO NOT PAY FOR THE PHONE as soon as you threaten to leave they take the money off. Although i have got to wait 3-5 days starting from today cos i had the money knocked off. small price to pay i think. let me know how you get on people.
Thank God!! Its not just me that O2 are snooty with then. I must of spent the rpice of the K800 on thephone with them trying to flog out some sort of deal. They are so up there own backsides some of them. Anyhow i got my tarrif of 500 mins & 500 txts for £20 a month (12 month contract) and the K800 for £49.99. Not a bad deal really, but please please O2 invest some of this money we are all giving you into purchasing a semi-reliable business system that doesnt crash 46,000 times a day!!!
PS: when i get the phone i will review it here, that was just a good old moan that was hugely necessary.
Oh yeah!.... the other networks aren't advirtising that they have them though are they?!....look at orange and vodafone's web sites and there is no mention. So i presume you're going through a third party for them and not direct?
well i pre ordered mine on the 20 june and they told me delivery of 26th then put it back to the 28th and now they can't tell me when. Full of S*** me thinks!
this is to bruno o2 is a uk network, as if you didnt know that!!!!!!!!!!!
This review says that the keys are rubber like. This would really put me off. Aren't they the same as on the K750?
