    Both my sister and uncle have them, I've had a play with them and try we're well worth the money.

    Ok Cheers

    Fingers get burned when the home fire is stoked in Munster. I suggest that any rugby fan who hasn\'t visited Thomond Park should get over there for the next Heineken Cup match. Only by being in Limerick on a big match day can you understand why the place is such a fortress.

      One thing to mention though was the version I got at least was not dual sim. Not sure if the Uk versions are.
      On googling it looks like the dual SIM is only on sale in Brazil.

            The sister ordered on a Friday and had it on Tuesday via TNT. The uncle has a house over there so he just picked his one up in the supermarket with his shopping.

Even happened to Mrs V and she had her iphone just over 3 weeks.
                Hi Valencia, bit late I know, but I think you can just get them covered under house insurance. I have the laptop, iPad, phone and photo printer on ours.

                  Valencia. Ulster bank covers them free under its ufirstgold account.

                      Did you get one ? What's the build quality like ?

                      My 18 month contract is up with Meteor in March, and I'm going to seriously look at what contract/provider/phone to get. I really don't like the idea of being tied in for 18/24 months.

                        Generally speaking would there be any practical reason to avoid buying a refurb phone from a major retailer (O2)? They say there's a 12 month warranty but I don't know if there are any loopholes etc.
                        Tis but a scratch.

                              Who's the warranty with?
                              And out of curiosity, what's the phone?

                                I picked up a THL android on chinavasion, top of the range unit for 130 euro.
