You guys in UK are lucky that you get phones ordered from China at all.
Here, in our little corner of Europe customs instantly sends back most of them, mostly due lack or fake CE nad Rohs certificates.
That includes popular phones like most Zopo models, JiaYu G3/G4 and Sege XYZ-X1 which is currently advertised right here.
In fact i ordered the Sege after Paul got his, and it was sent back. As far as customer service goes, i contacted seller , they promised to reply in 2 days, but never did, so i sent couple more e-mails and finally placed claim with Paypal. After waiting for 6 weeks, i got my money back today. So i can consider myself lucky.
Yea, sold out very fast.
As for 240€ price, its clear that Elisa did not want to sell Blade off contract, thats why such ridiculous price.
Price on contract 5€x24 months plus mandatory 5€ unlimited data plan, while more expensive than at Saunalahti was still quite reasonable.
