    • Reminder - MoDaCo position on illegal content

      ILLEGAL CONTENT I'd like to just reaffirm MoDaCo's position regarding piracy and illegal content in the light of some recent questions / postings.

      You may discuss and post links to custom device ROMs on MoDaCo, provided the following rules are adhered to: ROMs must not be hosted directly in topic via the MoDaCo attachment system
      ROMs must not contain any illegal 3rd party software (this includes trial versions included without permission)

      This decision has been taken in light of the huge amount of interest in this area of device customisation within the community, and member feedback!

follow @adventvega on twitter for stock updates

they are usually reposted here pretty quickly, but most recent update:

@AdventVega: Stock update. More stock for tomorrow afternoon. Expect it no earlier than 3.30pm. We will tweet again as the time approaches. #adventvega (about 18:00)

follow these posts closely and be online having already set up an account with pcworld/currys/dixons when the announced hour comes. follow one of paul's links above (or go through quidco to earn yourself some cashback) then press f5 repeatedly while holding your breath for an hour or so (helps if you have also pre-emptively emptied your bowel and bladder). or thats how I did it anyway!

if last stock release is anything to go by, you will have about 4-6mins from when it goes live to them being sold out.

:P

I'm not sure If I'm allowed to post links or not....

In short, I'm using EntroPay to create a virtual credit card. You will have to verify yourself with them (send drivers licence, etc), but after that they will authorise purchases to ANY billing address (is my understanding). This means you won't have the UK seller asking you why you are shipping to some random address that isn't your billing address. They charge a 5% surcharge to load the virtual creditcard form your own (only down side I can find so far).

I'm then using Alfasent to forward the package to myself in Australia. I have no idea how much this will cost, it will probably be high!

So you order with virtual credit card, and set shipping and billing address to the alfasent address they give you.

If you don't have the time to hit refresh all day, I suggest you wait until they have lots in stock. This will happen eventually, when the demand goes down, or they ramp up production (some think they might be deliberately slowly down releases until bugs have been worked out). That way you'll get a better performing device, or maybe something better will come out!

It was out of stock when you posted that you could get it at 9:46 :P Currys lasted 30 minutes and were out of stock at 9:20am. I suspect the 3 e-shops use the same back end database (they all look "identical") so they were probably all out of stock at 9:20...

I live in Sweden. Next week i am going to UK for a business trip and hoping to buy 2.

hopefully they will have in in a store.

I think that the best way is to call everyday and try and reserve.

Suuuuure they will.......

Would love to think this is true, but I just don't see it i'm afraid. Sadly DSG call-centre staff are about as useless as a chocolate teapot. Not their fault i'm sure, but they do have a tendency to tell you what you want to hear to get you off the phone.

I'll cross my fingers, but won't be holding my breath!

This is what AdventVega had to say yesterday on twitter:

To those asking, the Vega should be in some stores before Christmas. As soon as I have distribution details I will share on here.

I wouldn't hold my breath TBH...
