I've tried Google translate but I'm no clearer, is that with contract, sim free or PAYG? If it's with contract then it seems expensive compared with the UK. If it's PAYG or sim free, then it's much cheaper than UK

So about 40-50 Euro cheaper than UK.

I expect if one of the networks, eg T-Mobile, took it up on PAYG then we might see a similar price. I don't think anyone will though, I think it's a bit too "high-spec" for an own-brand PAYG phone in the UK marketplace.

@l3gionPT - I'd be really grateful if you could post back when it arrives re: what's in the box (presumably the charger will be Portuguese style, but is there a usb link in it, as many chargers have these days)
I've a friend living in Portugal and could get one shipped over - can't buy U8800s here in Ireland and I'd kinda like one, but if it's gonna be difficult to un-Portguese it, I may get one in the UK
EDIT - just noticed - it's E149 online!
That's a bloody steal! (provided it's not an expensive unlock)

I haven't much time to play with it B)
But so far, compared to U8230, it's another level!
By the way, z4root 1.3.0 works nice :)

Thanks for the pics - that looks like a two pin european mains AC plug leading to a female USB connector - is that right?

It's too early to find any of these on sale at Portuguese auctions websites.

Has anyone tried to unlock it?

i've looked on the net for some codes and i found it: http://www.unlock-tm...e-huawei-u8800/
has anyone tested?
mine should arrive today or tomorrow.

Update:
Mine Ideos X5 arrived, and it has some information on the box saying that it has radio Fm, is that true? i've didn't installed an application to connect to radio yet to verify if this model realy has a radio fm.

Anyone who bought this model can answer to that question?
