Funny that you say that flatpackpete, as in response to reports of the sound issue, Vodafone said they are only service providers so can't speak about any manufacturing issues. I bet its like a Guy doing DIY and breaking something, then he calls the expert to repair his mess, I wonder is that what happened here with Vodafone breaking it and getting Huawei to fix it.
Lets hope they leave ICS well alone.

Vodafone probably didn't flash the firmware onto these phones, as they have a 3 month exclusive deal they probably just supplied all the bloatware and huawei did the rest.
It's times like this that show how long it takes for firmware fixes to happen. We know that huawei have firmware that works, therefore voda definitely do, so what's the delay? Those hoops I was talking about.....

The warranty states that Huawei is not obliged to offer software support though or something to that effect. Backing that up are Facebook comments saying Huawei released software updates which were buggy and left it at that, they would not fix the bugs.

I think that's pretty standard warranty fare, so you can't moan to them that your voicemail doesn't work and suchlike.
Huawei will do a fix, but only for vodafone, they will proSPAMly just re-direct every query over to them, once they've fix it that is...

We had a conference here, in Russia, where Huwaei told about pushing G300 to russian market in July, and one news blog mentioned ICS for it. THough its not 100%, I read several articles about that announcement and only one had info about ICS for G300.

ICS pre loaded


Maybe. That is what I read in one of the reports: "Huawei showed this and that... G300 is a budget-friendly smartphone, that has ICS just like the more expensive models... will appear in July"
Now I even noticed ICS in G300 specs on this photo form the conference.

Well that's good-ish news. Although i am impatient and wish it was a little sooner or that a pre release rom would leak out!

Just ordered one from Vodafone. I expect it'll come with Gingerbread.
but
International website (UK site directs you here) says the following, so it can't be long ...

Super Fantastic
