Wow this is a popular forum isn't it?

Surprised as a few members have posted about having one. No one been particularly inspired by this handset?

I noticed it's now featured in a new Virgin Mobile tv ad with Pamela Anderson I think it was. Not that Windows Mobile got a mention! :)

Does anybody actually have one?

Or are they ashamed of it? :)

no, just £110!!

the £50 credit is a bonus. £5 initially on sim, plus £10 voucher. The other £35 is paid over 7 months as long as you make a chargeable call each month

It may be pig ugly but for £110 with £50 airtime it's got to be worth considering...

Might get one just to have a play.

Only the medion with GPS is cheaper.
Promlem is that's an old 2003 device so this has to be the best deal around.
Now to hope reception works ok where I live.

If you go here

http://www.virginmob...styleLanding.do

and make a note of the code, although its been 14000 every time Ive been there, you get 20% off!!

Plus if you go to the site through quidco you get 10% back as well!

I'm sorely tempted by this, despite the reviews, if only yuo could get it unlocked and still get the tv I'd buy it!

At this rate if I wait another week or two it will be free! LOL

Nice one Stunno - thanks for that, I'd never heard of Quidco but it looks interesting and the 20% off is making this look even more tempting.

Just found someone who won one and was selling it on another forum. He thought it was worth £200. When I pointed out it's new price I got it for £55 delivered. Should be here on Saturday!

It's worth it to use it as a DAB portable/MP3 player. If it can be an unlocked WM5 smartphone too then it will be excellent....

Hi I have had my Lobster about 2 weeks now and I love it.

I had an SPVC550 (+ c500 and MDA compact before that) This is a lot less buggy, no freezes so far. I have every dab station I like with crystal clear reception. The TV is OK (the ITN news channel is my main use so far) and a real show off item at the new years parties :).

I paid £90 via the lifestyle link at Virgin and got the usual £50 worth of free top ups.

So far, a brilliant piece of kit loaded with Audible, TCMP, ereader, and all the usual bells and whistles.

Now if only I could get it unlocked so I can use my TMO web'n'walk allowance without having to carry 2 phones.
