Thanks for all the great advice.
I'm going to go for the g300! Thanks RussellS for your advice - it made up my mind to go for the G300.
Your more than welcome. That's what these forums are all about.
Question now is where to buy it from....??? Play.com have it on sale from tomorrow or I could go Vodafone Online or from a shop. Any ideas if Play.Com is more likely to be unlocked? Is the ROM I should install B888?
If you go to a Vodafone shop it seems to be a bit hit 'n' miss whether they will unlock it for you and whether they will demand you pay the extra £10 top up. If you buy it online, whether from Vodafone or Play.com there is no top up required. Personally, I've bought two G300's and on both occasions I went through TopCashBack to get it online from Vodafone which pays back £5.05 which basically payed for the unlock code.
With respect to the rom, it will probably come with B882 installed (my second G300 which arrived last Thursday did) so I would recommend doing the standard OTA update to B885 first. Then thoroughly test the phone to make sure everything is working fine and it doesn't need to be returned. Then, after you are happy it is all ok, update it to one of the custom rom's.
Have a look at the forum threads for the Huawei B888 rom and Paul's Gr1 B888 rom.
As I mentioned before, take a look at Frankish's post http://www.modaco.co...-and-i-cant-do/
and if there is anything you are not sure about then just ask.
