    Updated 05/03/04

    This is an update which is now informing everyone that the Z1010 looks like it will not be released by '3'. This latest deal is for the e616 which is as follows:-

    NEC 616: Free

    3 Months insurance: Free

    6 Months Half price line rental on the 750 Minute Tariff: 17.50 per month (Maybe flexible on Tariffs dependant on numbers)

    Jabra handsfree bluetooth headset: Free, usually retails between 39.99 to 49.99 (See pic later in thread)

    So far we have a list of 15 people which has given us the buying power to make this package deal possible. The deadline for this deal is this Monday (08/03/04) @ 4:00pm for any people who want to take advantage of this offer.

    Anyone else interested please PM me your contact details before the deadline where I will add your names to the list and send all details to 3GM where all orders will be processed.

    OK I have just heard the 3G Sony Ericsson Z1010 should be released in the next 2 weeks or so.

    I have attached a picture of this phone further down the thread!!

    If I can get a list of people who want one I may be able to negotiate a good deal with the company to get a very good discount. Please remove this thread MODS if you think that this is not a good idea.
    After phone has been released I will let everyone know, where I will pass the list of all names onto the company where hopefully they will contact you to process the orders!! Obviously I will let everyone know what company it is once I see what response I get.

    Please add your names!!:)

    Ok. Following on from the other 3G thread................

    I'm going to look it up on specs etc, if all is good then I'd angle for a free handset with a 12 month contract to 3. Same sort of deal as now say, 3 months half price with a couple of freebies thrown in, ie, car kit handsfree etc. Enough of us should persuade your dealer to do it. A lot of deals in one go. Good earner for them.

    Sounds greedy, but I 'know' the 3 dealer here in Ipswich would match and beat others to get the business, so I want to wring out as much as possible.:smashin:

    I agree, Once we see how many numbers we have then we can start approaching various companies and start haggling the best deal.

    Sony and Erricson got to gether a while ago as far as phones are concerned so I expect it to be a bit of a mix of the best of both.

    I like my Erricson T39 but fancy a change to G3 and the 1010 is the first to have bluetooth which I need for compatability with my car kit.

    The T610 I have is very good which is one of the main reasons why I am focusing on the Z1010. It looks as though from the spec that that it will run circles around the T610.

    Would it be wrong to ask for a sticky to be put in the forums so everyone can see the deal?

    £25 for 500 mins etc + handset. Very good deal. Then we could possibly get a lot more people in on it and have a lot more 'buy it' power.

    I was thinking the same about making it a sticky. If it is agreed then obviously the title will need to be changed to bring attention to it. But it must stress the Z1010 to keep things simple.

    I may be able to get two buddies of mine. Can't confirm yet. But it's possible.

    Let you know in a few days.

    went in to carphone today to get a case and asked when it was coming out but the salesman said
    oh no sir the Z1010 will not be coming out on the 3 network for some time as the phones on that network are exclusive :rolleyes: to 3
    is this true:eek:

    hope not :D

    Lots of rumours flying around at the moment. 3 had the rights to the phone in the first place and the scheduled release was to be in the first quarter of 2004. People speculated that it would be in January. Obviously it is now not to be released January and have heard we should know into February. Also there is a reported disastrous rumour that 3 may not even be planning to offer the handset. As I said they are only rumours and nothing is confirmed in black and white.
    3 seem to enjoy being mysterious and we will have to wait for the official word which I am led to believe will be very soon as there are a lot of people waiting for this phone. If it isn't released then I strongly believe that this will be disastrous for 3's much needed sales and will be very damaging to them to get a foot hole into being one of the leading networks.

    All mobile phone shops I have been in to do not have a clue what is going on as there is no release date, so of course it is in there interest to sell any of the phones they have on offer.

    As soon as I hear word I will give updates immediately.:)
