Honestly, when I first saw this phone, I told my self , who would be such a stupid person to buy this phone, but guess what, now i'm the owner of this signature phone. At the moment when i bought this phone, i felt that like i'm gonna be famous and pe4ople would stare at me. I just wanna tell people that maybe it might be a wrong idea to buy this phone but one thing that make me proud of owning this phone is that i can sense a feeling of EXCLUSIVITY as not many people in my country own this phone.

Well I know what you guys thinks "its not about the features, its all about the exclusivity", but seriously, I think for this price, you could have this phone at least with the SE k750i features or similar.
I seen this phone first hand in a store in las vegas, and started to laugh. I guy came up to me and asked what i found was so funny. I pointed at the the phone, and then at its price. He stated it was made of surgical grade steel, and other "Expensive materials" platinum, and blah blah blah. I asked if it had any special features he said no they only are made to call and hold numbers, and only 1 model has bluetooth.
Then i told him they finally got it right. They made a not so smart phone for simple minded rich people who simply want to call. Then i asked him when you sell the one with bluetooth they ask you to sync it up, and not only that you see them a couple of weeks later cause they dont know how to operate it right? He laughed and said i was right on the money.I was happy about this that meant i dont gotta deal with the some ignorant rich customer who cant operate his pda phone, or phone with lots of features (i had my share of over a dozen). Ill just recommend the vertu company to these type people. PROBLEM SOLVED THANX VERTU!
Its a sick phone, and you dont see alot of ppl carrying it around so its for ppl who want to be unique.....
it's got style which most other phones don't have, at least 99% of the models, which are no doubt made for those 99% of people who haven't got taste anyway regardless of how wealthy they are. This phone is something I would definitely get if I had it going on, without doubt. Features like mp3, camera, etc...all scapegoats for poor phone functionality and style and they don't last when you've had the phone for over a month tops :P
I just had the Signature Vertu given to me and I think its great. The have the treo so I don't need this phone to do a lot. This is more like having a Rolex. I could go out and buy the Casio for 50 bucks and have all the features, but the Rolex is luxury for 20,000 bucks. It is what it is.
Wait! Who actually buys these phones? Is it the common people on the street? NO. Is it the same persons you see in the bus on the way to work every day? NO. Is it the same guy you see at some cheap join? NO.
Then who buys these phones...
It is those who travel in 1st class on airplanes, those people who drives Ferraris or be driven in a Rolls Royces or Benleys, it is those people who cruise the Caribbean sea in a multi-million dollar yacht, it is those people who earns millions in a year where others make do with a few thousands a month.
Now this phone is cheap in this respect...
vertu only release few model of extremely high price phone... the price is extremely high's not because of the function or anything, but the materials it made from - sapphire, diamond, ruby, platinum, titanium, authentic leather, stainless steel... guess u guys never really knew y its so expensive! and uh, its made for very rich people only!
Why the F*** is this damn phone so expensive???? For 6000 EURO you don't have a camera.... not even infrared!! What the hell does this phone do??? It cleans the house?? It makes you breakfast?? This is a phone for the people who don't care about the money. But for those who do care, this damn phone AIN'T recommanded. Here in Romania, you can buy a brand new car with 6000 EURO.
these wooden phones intriuge me,does your insurance policy to include woodworm and accidental mistaking for fire wood.The practicality of this phone is amazing.Why did nobody think of this before???...Why
if its a wooden phone you want my new pirate range of phones is set to hit the market in mid 2006. We have done away with cameras and replaced the features of the phone to mimik body parts. I suggest the peg-log mob. it comes in mahogany and pine.
i suppose if you like flash cars, designer labels,big nasty mordern new money houses then this will be right up your back ally. i was looking for something in wood personally,or something organic mabey made of dead skin cells or belly button fluff. dan (confused)
a absolute splendid phone, does what you need, a phone for which you can call the butler for example; to get the limosine ready. worth every single penny, and works perfectly. i own four and each work fine and not a problem with any of them and no scratches on them after several months.
Its existence makes all other phones seem pointless. Having just bought the Stainless Steel Gold Keys Edition (18,500 SGD), it has made me embrace the essence of luxury.
Nothing at the moment or in the near future would come close to the refinement, elegance and exclusivity of this mobile phone.
A class ahead the rest.
I just hope they would raise the price by 20%-40% for exclusivity's sake.
this its a nice telephone ....but hi dont deserve the money what they ask
if u ride in limo but u hold a nokia 1100 would people be wondering?if u ride in a limo and hold this phone with platinum casing people would stare at u !i can afford this phone but i better get 8800 no offense but i dont like the wieght..its realy heavier than my communicator
Actually the owner of Vertu doesn't CARE about features like MP3,GPRS,Wireless,Camera... but the FAME of the phone.They want the others KNOW who the OWNER is !!! They wanna be famouse to own the phone-considered the KING of the phones.I think this Vertu is a great and luxurious masterpiece !!!
If I had enough money,I would boy it surely !!!
ok....i dont own the phone....nor would i ever but that doesnt change the fact that i respect it...the phone WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR FEATURES...ppl buy it because its exclusive, and in case people dont realize it your paying fot the expensive ass materials that go in you phone..this is the same thing as purchasing something from bang and olfson...you want something that says im rich and prominent...obviusly people cant understand why this phone was designed...if this phone were cheap then every1 would end up buying it just like what happned with the moto razr...it was a cool phone to have until every1 had it....and another thing if you buy this phone you know for sure that it will not devalue unlike all the techy phones that are out there...
