Hey,

So I got an email and a refund from e_cell, saying that the device is being recalled so my order can't be completed.

A recall seems possible since there is no stock anywhere, but I've been advised that this is bullshit from e_cell.

Anyway, is there anywhere I can order one today without being ripped off (in the UK obviously)? I go away tomorrow and would like to order it before I go.

Thanks,
Jacob

Does anyone know of any other stores selling the phone? Everywhere I look I cannot find any that are in stock.

Thanks,

Michael.

Gum Mobile do not have any in stock at the moment, but they have a facebook page, I suggest posting a message there and ask when it will be back in stock

I know this is quite rude to ask, but will we have to wait a bit longer for the CM7(Official), I know dzo and geno and stock working on getting a CM7(ported) rom working fully for ever day use. As Jacob didn't seem to gain a U8800 and now away, how long will this be halted?

I've submitted superetrader my email address so they can alert me if or when they get them back in stock!!

I'm still not 100% sure if I gonna buy U8800 yet, it's a toss up between this, ZTE Skate or just keeping my OSF & buying myself a Android Tablet instead!!
