Orange Monte Carlo only £229 Rooted!

16 posts in this topic

Someone on Ebay is selling the Monte Carlo for £229 rooted and with CWM recovery installed... What a rip off and it's someone who comes here! I noticed one of the screenshots he used is one i personally took myself of my homescreen on my ZTE Blade! It has my city on Fancy Widget and my exact homescreen layout and wallpaper...funny stuff.

Also lol at "Grab a genuine bargain!" and "You will not be disappointed with the power of this device!".

I wont link the auction as don't want to promote it but i just want to say if you're reading this.,.

GET A GRIP!

LOL.

I've seen it, he's had like 12 offers or something but no sales. Its being sold aside the preorder's for the unlocked ones, at around the same price so someone might be fooled.

Also, in the listing where he states the specs as 512mb its says ''Unlike others with only 256mb'

And apparently its better than the ones from the shop's as its been tried and tested!!!

That's the problem with free software worked hard to create by talented people, there will always be others leeching and making money from it.

If you look in the completed listings for PAYG Monte Carlo, one has sold for £179. Apparently it has a custom rom (I wonder where that came from?) but is network locked to Orange.

So what has the buyer actually paid the premium for? :rolleyes:

Frankish is it the one sold by cinderella*1* ?

I don't have an ebay account but anyone that does please take the time to report the listing and keep an eye on the seller.

I don't mind people selling phones rooted with MoDaCo tools but I do mind when they are charging an extra £60!

I dont agree with what the guy is doing but how many of you are signed up to amazon's free app of the day?

Is that not piracy? Just because it comes from a legitimate source doesn't mean that by circumnavigating Amazons restrictions your NOT illegally downloading software.

I'm not casting any stones, I just dont thnk anyone else should either. We all have to follow our own moral compas.

If people are stupid enough to pay over the odds for something that is free thats down to them.

PS I'm not that guy

People can do as they please. But selling a phone and providing "£250 worth of free apps" is not cool.
