What a bargain!


A.C.

Recommended Posts

I finally ordered a new mobile phone today - a Sony Ericsson W550i - one of the Walkman-branded phones. I've had a Nokia 8210 for YEARS and the thing only works if you twist it while you're speaking which hurts your hand.

 

I spent about a week researching what and where to buy and I decided upon the W550i from http://www.buymobilephones.net for a number of reasons:

 

1) The W550i looks groovy.

 

2) It comes with GAUNTLET and WORMS games already on it! :worship

 

3) You can get new games for it off the Sony Ericsson website for around £4 a pop.

 

4) Does the MP3 thing.

 

5) It's free on an 02 250 x-net minutes/50 text deal. £35/month - not the cheapest but reasonable when you consider that I also get...

 

6) A Hitachi 5.1 Home Cinema System with built-in Freeview as a FREE GIFT! That'll be my brother's Christmas present.

 

I couldn't believe the stuff they're giving away. A free PSP in white with your mobile phone? They do that. A free mini-moto? They do that too! It's ridiculous.

 

I know this sounds like a shill but I'm just chuffed with the deal I got. This thread, then is so that you can:

 

a) Discuss other bargains you've seen on the net and let us know about them.

 

b) Say "Well done A.C., that is a bargain!"

 

or

 

c) Say "You fool! Phones4Gin.com has free gin for a year with every order etc.!"

 

*Sits quietly and waits for techno-goodies to arrive*

My phone has a green screen and snake.................:(

 

Mine does too. And I wouldn't've bothered with a new one had it not deteriorated to the point where it cramps my hand twisting the phone in order to be heard!

 

Oh, and go to http://www.buymobilephones.net. They seem to have the same tariffs and free phones as everybody else but they give you free stuff too. :)

Well I have the w800i MP3 phone AC and I have to say its the best I've ever owned' date=' superb piece of kit thats for sure. I'm sur ethe clamshell version will be just as good.[/quote']

 

I dug that phone too (it's got a higher specification) but the offers weren't as good! ;) Plus, I already have an MP3 doo-dad so I wasn't too worried about the capacity - there's plenty of rooms for games on it. And I thought it was a clamshell but it's a swivel-type-action. SEXY!

Do you have use all your strengh when pushing the buttons, so the phone can actually register.......you're pushing the buttons? With my oaf like fingers, it's pretty damn fiddly.

 

I actually managed to have a two minute conversation today! Needs charging now, mind.

OOOOOOhhhhhhh, there was a thing in zoo the other day Wyndy. It said to get maximum power from your nokia phone battery do this:

 

press 4720#, then turn it off and on. This enables a half-rate codec, lowering volume but prolonging charge. To cancel it type #4720#. It supposedly increases your battery life by 30%.

 

Anyway........Well done AC! good buy was that. I commend your excellance!

! I was told in the shop that it was an upgrade to the E700, but now I'm thinking they lied.

 

I always get my phones from T-Mobile, since the incident with carphone warehouse lieing to me.

 

Hope you have fun with your phone.

Ive got a funky Sony Ericcson K750i. It does everything I could ask of it :)

 

I thought that was a fine looking phone but the special offers weren't so great. I wanted something fairly up-to-date but I'm no conosor... connysouir... I'm no expert.

I just bought the samsung d600 its great, sexy stylish and fits in my pocket without bulging. I'd been dying for a new phone since my damn dog chewed the hell out of my old one. Didnt get any special deals but I've wanted this phone since they came out.

 

A free mini-motor AC I'd have gone for that, more fun than T.V. I'll just have to borrow my kids one they're getting for xmas.

 

xXx
