Earlier in the week Coolsmartphone posted http://www.coolsmart...m/news1986.html

Nice work i thought as I watched the i300's slowly get bids.. I've been watching them the past week expecting loads of interest. My guess was a end price of £300+ My reasoning was an ipod, phone, organiser, small office entertainment machine rolled into one has to be worth a little extra? Well by chance I left my lights on and my battery went flat....I phoned the recovery company to jump start me as one attempted with a work colleage didn't work. I went back in and sat at my PC and decided to browse ebay as I do when bored. I remembered the advert and decided to take a look. NOw i had always fancied a i300 i'd miss out on the wifi but gain the storage.. when the page loaded I saw the i300's and couldn't believe it! 1 minute to go! wow and £180.00 £165.00 172.00 etc.. and all ending within about 20 minutes! I stsrted bidding and missed the the first one on what was left which went for £215.00 I couldn't go more than £210.00 as I thought that was the most i could pay without being silly. Well i waited for the next one to get to 10 secs and stuck £210.00 in and crossed my fingers then quickly topped it to £215 incase.! ahhh.. sweet! I've won!

Samsung i300 for £210.00 Happy Days! Now that won't happen again for a while! So who else was a lucky fella? or who thinks i've been a silly boy and paid too much?

I reckon you probably got a good deal! It won't be out on PAYG for a while at least, and SIM free it might be 300+ in some shops. Be sure to tell us what it's like when you receive it - and how the hard drive and battery are etc. :)

Well built device, battery life lets it down tho, I dont think you got a bad deal as its a very one of a kind phone, O2 are doing them for £49.99 with contract now.

So who's playlist and songs did you get? I wanted Howard Mark's but since he uses the same MBE as me in York maybe I'll just ask him. I ended up with Party Organiser and all-round socialite / friend of Kate Moss / Sadie Frost etc etc Fran Cutler's...

...was planning on junking the playlist anyway - don't know which is worst, that I won a d-list non-celebrity's phone/playlist, or that I actually know who she is... :cry:

Cheapest went to some guy with 1 f/b in spain for £200 so not too bad. Highest was £240.

I'll post the playlist here when I receive the phone if anyone's interested?


I love the o2 auctions :) Back in 2001 I got a lot of good handsets on the internal charity auction when I worked at BTC - ericcson r380s for £40, sony M Z5 memory stick atrac walkman phone for £100 ( like the Z5 but chunkier with a memory stick slot and an optical in to record directly to the magicgate stick), XDA wallaby prototype for £200, various PAYG philips for £10 each.....good for christmas presents..

Anyone received theirs yet? I paid via paypal but all I've got are out of office replies from the pr company, yet they have been given some feedback on ebay for their 'quick delivery'...

TBH, I saw these and felt it was a con.In capital flashing letters. I hope that I am proved wrong so that you get your phones.

Well, I emailed them yesterday to check on it's status and she'd forgotton to send it :cry:

To their credit, she did offer a *same day* courier from London to York with it, but as I've used a similar service the other way which cost £350 + vat and it was a charity auction I said that was OTT for 1 phone. It should be here tomorrow.

It never was a WM2005 device. This was an auction FOR CHARITY so I hope most if not all of what you've made as a profit will be donated to a good cause, if not then shame on you. :evil:

Wouldn't you know it, the day it's due to be delivered I'm going to be in London around the corner from the PR co's office.... :evil:

The courier drop off I use know to expect it so it should be waiting for me on sunday :-)

Now, I've got a list of 3 devices I want to poke around inside - this i300, a qtek 9100 ( which I've chipped the casing off :cry: ) and an imate sp5m - oh which do I take to bits first?....

....probably the i300 when I have time. I want to see the 3gb drive -e xpect some out-of-focus photos when I do ( somebody PLEASE tell me which camera to buy :roll: ) ;)

Richard

p.s I've emailed them to pass on a request for wm2005 upgrade for it to samsung...
