Just ordered one last night.
Long story, was searching the Vodafone website for info on getting my damaged phone replaced, insurance etc. I have a HTC Desire S which I am happy with (or was), unfortunately it was dropped on concrete resulting in a shattered lcd. I decided to replace this and put in a new touchscreen but it appears the pcb was also damaged.................... more money! At this point I was comtemplating selling the phone for spares/repairs on Ebay and buying a used phone to see out my contract which has eight months remaining.
Low and behold, I spotted the Huawei, I was like ooooh what's this, a quick glance I thought it was a HTC until I noticed the price. Further reading I decided to order this one to repace my contract HTC.
I had a SF/Blade on Orange a few years back, rooted and enjoyed modding the hell out of that. The Desire S was of course a different beast, I never bothered rooting and modding it, I figured it was a bit more challenging and didn't fancy risking bricking a £300 phone! I am currently using my girlfriend's old Hero which I rooted and Flashed CM7.
Anyway, looking forward to getting this phone. I assume they send a delivery email of some kind?
I will be flashing to a non-branded mod from Huawei, not sure if I will root and CWM the thing or not. I guess it's better then I can nandroid and be safe. The Huawei updates are nice and easy to install with no rooting required. The main thing is to get rid of the Vodafone junk and fix up the speaker issue.
Damn, can't believe all this for £100, wow! Haven't been this excited about a phone in ages!!!!
