Can anyone tell me that the phone can upgrade to 2.3?
I am about to purchase this phone soon.
Please help to answer my question above.
other way around. dell rebranded zte blade to its own and put higher price then blades.
I bought this from orange in white. First thing i did was unlock it (free here - http://arrtoo.x10.mx/unlockBlade.php) Then headed over to MoDaCo forums and upgraded to Froyo 2.2 to get rid of all the Orange rubbish. Have to say for the money this has to probably be the best phone you can get!! http://android.modaco.com/category/453/zte-blade-blade-modaco-com/

I had a similar situation in Dec 2005 (Or was it 2006)
When I gave an O2 XM phone as a present. I got it back, and the girl told me in a temper that she wanted a proper brand! (Nokia or Motorola) (This was before the IPhone & androids) Not a network own brand CRAP!
When i try and recieve a bluetooth file , i always recieve a ' not enough memory ' mesage , i have a memory card inserted with available free memory so why does this happen , im assuming its tring to store it in the very low phone memory instead , how do i solve this prob ? great phone by the way , screen resoluton is brilliant .
san, 31 Jan 2011Hi. Where did you manage to buy your ZTE for 89.99 unlocked?
I thought, as someone suggested ... moreGoogle search "£71.96 Orange San Fransico Go Mobile"
Nothing, Nada, Nil, Not a peep...
If this was for real there would be pages of links. In other words stop posting false claims to get people into your shops, so you can sell them a useless expensive 24 month contract!
Very gud phone.... nice touch interface.. and value for money is amazing.. i just love this phone !!

I thought, as someone suggested Go Mobile, that they would have the Blade but they only sell the Orange version San Francisco which is locked. Thanks

The only people who slate this phone, are people who payed triple the price for their HTC or similar!
It was a very clever marketing technique by ZTE, to release and probably lose money on the AMOLED versions, then replace the display with LED LCDS (which is still great value).

Oh and how the hell does it give android a bad name. Thats like someone using a flavor of linux on a emachine as apposed to a alienware rig. I would see differing performances on the two machines but I wouldn't blame the OS for those differences. Muppet.
I can't believe anyone actually buys this crap. The specs are repugnant. This is the kind of piece of sh-- phone that gives android a black eye. If you buy this and expect some functional level of performance you must be kidding yourself. I'd never forgive someone if they gave this thing to me as a gift.

Although I still stand by my evaluation of the device that it is the best handset on the market in the respect of Price vs Spec/performance!

Oliver, 26 Jan 2011It will get official 2.2 in SwedenHow will you get the official 2.2 in sweden, but theres been a lot of speculation that it is not being released in england?

This deal isn't listed on their website, how can they do this cheaper than Orange themselves, or are you being facetious :-)
I am really astounded with this phone. Bought for 89.99 UK pounds, Unlocked free. headed over to MoDaCo forums and installed really stable froyo rom. Quadrant score of 900+ consistantly! Cant think of another phone ive ever had that has so much bang for buck. Oh camera and build quality not up to much but everything else is superb!

[deleted post]I bought mine from an orange shop - the handset was £100 but it had to be purchased with £20 top up.
Argos in the UK have just started stocking the San Francsico on orange PAYG for £90. you will have to buy £10 top up tho. still, at 100 quid all in, its a bloomin' bargin! HTC wildfire is the next comparable phone but that costs £50-£70 pounds more.
the wildfire has a slower processor, less ram, a lower screen res - BUT its build quality is better, as is the camera. plus HTC sense is present.
my choice every time would be the blade - my mates wildfire crashes as much as my satio did!
