I ordered a tablet on 7th and this phone on 4th. I've just received a message to say the tablet has shipped today, but the phone still shows as "Awaiting fulfilment". I wonder if they have a stock issue?

Which tablet did you order?

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

:excl:A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!) :excl:

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

Finally got my V5 today.. :)

It took 17 days from purchase this time where it only took 11 days for the last one to arrive.

Note to others: don't bother adding a screen protector to your V5 purchase because it already has one in the box from Vowney. I paid extra for a protector last time and I assumed the one that came with my V5 was the one I purchased but this time I didn't bother adding a screen protector and one was still in the box, so I assume Vowney send them out with screen protectors.

Here's pretty much what you get in the box.. Everything comes sealed but I have already removed the protective plastic.

And it looks far better in black IMO. Also it's a matte black has a less polished feel so its less slippery.

Mine didn't come with an extra screen protector in the box, only the one that I paid for.

You should have got two. The one in the box, from Vowney, and the extra one you paid for. I didn't pay for a screen protector this time and I still got one in the box, so either Merimobiles sent me a free gift or Vowney equip each phone with a screen protector. ..

Maybe they did make a mistake and just put one in but I kind of doubt it.

I went for the Cube U30GT II - 1.8GHz quad core CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, 10.1" 1920x1200 HD IPS display, dual cameras... seems like a great spec and I've watched some good review videos on YouTube.

Gosh then not only did they mess up my color choice, they forgot to send me my extra screen protector. Ah well...I used the $10 store credit they gave me to get an extra screen protector anyway :P

No never so far, if you google it the latest rules say ok to post if fitted in the equipment it is to be used in, the shipping of battery on its own is forbidden

From your email, they are still referring to batteries posted on there own, earlier this year IATA changed the rules to allow shipment of lithium batteries installed in mobile phones, USPS and Royal mail mention it on their sites...

VIP expired on 31st May 2013 so it can't be used.
but MOE looks good :D

Spoke to a Merimobiles rep, looks like the extra $8 they charge for "Singapore Post" is basically Sweden post, but @bryfly said it was terrible, so I reckon free post would be better

Guess we treat what Chinese suppliers say with caution, as they told me they were no longer going to use Sweden Post,,,
