This guy's got 20 @299 each plus 25 shipping. From previous contact they are black dopod s300 with english menus - he had an auction end at 261 yesterday but something doesn't quite sit right with a guy under 100 feedbacks no real history selling smartphones and he's got 20+ to sell....Hmmmmmm....proceed with caution if you go for it. I'll wait for the result of the poll. :)

Being that your an ebay seller that everyone trusts and your concern about the sale in a whole was the reason the link was removed , not every modaco member is from the uk and some have problems understanding english fully , and may not have read your posting fully and could have bought a phone only to find they have an empty box delivered , something knowone on modaco wants . the advert itself shows pictures of the phone in 2 versions , the real phone and msmobiles photos from along time ago , which shows this seller does not have the phones at all.

Hmmmmmm...

so whearas before I'd broken the rules and should have known better, now it's beause it was a public service and *you* say the seller is fake. Do you work for ebay? The police? Have you contacted the seller?
I said 'proceed with caution' - as with anything where you buy from s stranger. YOU CANNOT catagorically state the seller has no items and is a fraud - he has explained to me in an email which version is supplied and provided more info which I mentioned, and there could be many reasons why he has used file photos - look at the critiscism I get for my photo taking - the seller has emailed my some photos taken with a camera phone of his stock, and has also agreed to my collection request if I decide to buy - nethier of which support your theory - which I would have added to the original post if the link was still there.

In this country there are concepts such as 'innocent till proven guilty' and 'defamation of character' you may want to famailiarise yourself with. You can go on all you want about modaco being an international site but a simple who-is query shows UK registration and the ebay seller / site is also governed by UK law.

So which rule did I actually break then? As you removed the link and said 'you know the rules' - it seems I don't - which rules says you cannot link to an ebay auction in the middle of a thread if it's on topic?

Again, the rule as far as I understand was no sales outside of ebay, this guy accepts paypal, and if a none english speaking person cannot read english properly they should not buy off an english seller via ebay with a listing in english in a different country. Your use as that for an excuse to remove the link is frankly ludicrous and differes from the comment you made in the edited post as it's not a 'rule' that's been borken.

If you had supplied the extra information then the link would not have been removed . all that was removed was the link if you check the post bellow it you will see that only the link was removed nothing else.

Right, now lets get back on topic with this one.
Any ebay links that you think may be questionable please make this as clear as possible for others to read.

And black is still the colour to go for unless you then want to give the phone to the other half.

Nice one!! Don't think you'll be sorry. Very 1st impression was it's slightly big but there's no denying when its opened up its a cool phone, seriously thin and very very light!

I'm lovin' it so far. :)

But why? I went with the popular vote! Democracy in action....

Richard.

p.s no sign of it yet. Expansys have UK stock @ 299 out of stock and 'euro' stock @ 315 in stock. I assume my german one will be 'euro' stock so for the sake of 50 might have been better to go with expansys...

Mine is black and I think any other colour would detract from the sexiness of the phone.....I bet we all loved it when we saw it, and we saw a black one.....

So get a BLACK one!!

Even though I love pink color, I don't think that this particular phone looks nice in pink.
On the contrary, it looks AWESOME in black!
I bought mine 2 weeks ago!!! It's BLACK and beautiful! :)
