Just a heads up for anyone looking to buy a QTek 8500.. I have just received mine from www.expansys.com and I am pretty pleased with it seeing as it only costs £69.95 now thats a BARGAIN.

They have them in the 'stock clearance' section...

SIM FREE TOO :D


Back up to £99.95 now. Hope everyone who wanted one got one.

Or if they didn't they'd probably just buy the EU Smartflip at £59.95 ...

...if it does indeed come back in stock. Plus point is a smartflip comes with a leather-ette case. Minus point is it comes with an EU mains adapter.
Been saying 500+ in stock - 3 days for a while now. Although the extra one I ordered tuesday night is ready for collection apparently so they must have some...

Winds me up that they leave it as '585 in stock 3 days'or whatever when they have no intention / possibility of getting more. Stock control's never been their strongest point. Or price :D

Still, got another 2 ordered and paid for still to collect when I can get down there :(

I've never used Expansys before, mainly due to their prices. But when I got the voucher from Modaco and found the smartflip for £59.99 I jumped at the chance. When I ordered it, they quoted several hundred in stock, 5 days iirc. It's now been over a week, the listing is gone and my order has said 'estimated 6 days' every day since. I'm starting to think I'll never see the phone. :(

If this is how Expansys do business, it'll be the last time I try them. <_<

I'm selling my Smartflip on ebay as I've managed to flash my old SPV C500 with a WM 6.1 ROM and I've realised how much I really do like the phone. I've got nothing against the Smartflip, I just don't need four mobile phones (others being my Kaiser, C500 and crappy work Nokia).

It's going for £70 inc P&P as that's what I paid for it a few weeks ago from Expansys, but I'm also chucking in a 1gb micro SD card and the 3.5mm headphone adapter I bought for it too.

Update 04/04/08 - Now sold!
