Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone has used the modaco shop recently. When it was opened I thought that it would grow and become a place for everyone to get good deals.
I had a look today, there are 1 gb SD cards for UK 50!

I can get 2GB from retail www.ebuyer.com for 25? How can this site that I so love be ripping people off to such an extent>?

Surely this would be the place for all users to get a good deal - "a fair deal" not what I saw.

Am I being silly, is this shop designed to help pay for the running of this site?
I thought that was why we payed for modaco PLUS?

Personally I would much prefere to give my money to my favorite online smartphone communinty shop if I thought I was going to get at least a competetive price. I am not saying it has to be the cheapest. Its just that its the same price as PCWORLD! !!! Probably more expensive!
how will you sell any? All of the prices are ridiculous.

The MoDaCo Hardware Shop run by SME Solutions is closing, and will be replaced by a new hardware / handset shop under a new agreement.

FairDeal is the software shop, which is completely seperate.

It may be that SME Solutions isn't putting local suppliers out of business and doesn't use child labour and overseas call centres :rolleyes: :(

Thanks for the info Paul, I shall wait for new hardware shop to open, maybe I'll order a new card from there. I am in no rush.

Disco Stu, I have never heard that www.ebuyer.co.uk is using overseas call centres and child labour!!!

I have built a squillion PC's with parts ordered from there!

You have made me worry......but then again, the amount of dangerous chemicles used to make PC's and smartphones etc causes such pollution that it kind of outweighs the other issues.

I was in a state of not caring.......you have opened a gulf in my technolust :( How can I get all exited about my new device now :)

(its actually a W850i - My universal is going to be allocated as a data only device)

Well - roll on the new modaco shop :rolleyes:

I probably shouldn't try to be funny so early in the day and I'd better make it clear that I wasn't making allegations about eBuyer either ! It was more of a 'support your local shop' thing :rolleyes:

Hey Stu - I know this is an old topic now, but my 'local shop' will quite happily buy stock from overseas children :D and then sell it to me for a huge profit. Business is business, but why shouldn't I buy direct from the poor children?

:(
