I am in 2 minds. http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=simplyelectronics+review

There are good and bad experiences.

Oh, thanks :)
Yeah, Nokia E7 for Euro 407! Simfree/unlocked...

They are based out of Hong Kong (no bad thing) and are subject of some poor reviews (bad thing).
Pay with your credit card and caveat emptor....

I'd rather pay with YOUR credit card then, mrew :p
I'm not really actively looking for a phone - I just stumbled upon them this morning.
I think I'm happy with what I got at the mo'! :D

What have you got at the mo? (out of interest, given how often you seem to change what you've got - I'm just jealous of course) :P

Got a Palm Pre 2 - I have always loved webOS but previous Pre models struggled on EDGE/2G... this one is much faster. Good apps (not many, BUT GOOD), good(ish) battery life, smartest email client EVER, and the UI is... - well, I'd marry it, but that'd be weird LOL
It's not perfect - some odd 'gaps' in the appstore, and I had sworn to never again buy a phone without sd-slot...
And the Homebrew 'community' is excellent :D

How do you import something expensive to UK bypassing customs? If you order for €400, will it make it through customs?

Btw, E7 is $550 in US.

JanSt / MOD  May. 6, 2011 at 12:54

Wonder myself. I think they have biz reistration in EU ;)
Yeah, saw that US price. :|

I like how prices on that website charge with currency.
£419.95 = €399.95 = $563.95 ???

They really like USD and really hate GBP.

LOL yes, I noticed expansys Ireland (€)are up to 15% cheaper than the UK site ;)
