    I want a smartphone with Tom Tom on it.

    I would love a Orange SPV C500 but there are soo expensive but at the moment there is one on Ebay in my price range. It has everything expect the GPS reciever but has 5 hours to go so I am sure the price will go up.

    However, there is a Orange SPV E200 (which sell cheaper than the C500) finishing in under an hour which is nice but I would need to purchase a memory card for it. The tom tom is no problem as I have already had an offer from a TSR member (who since they mentioned it via pm wants to remain nameless) to send me a copy of Tom Tom.

    HELP I have less than an hour to decide.

    Well, check their feedback carefully, and actually read comments rather than just check the number of negs.

    Press ctrl+f and look for the words "link" and "picture" to check you will actually get a phone.

    Read the whole advert thouroghly.

    Check they send em recorded/special delivery.

    Dnt trust ebay! my m8 was gonna get the Nokia 6230 ages ago, when it was quite new. It was £80 (v good price at the time), and sed "6230 box and charger". What he didnt notice was the abscence of comma separating the words 6230, and its box! :p:

    Sorry but I had to laugh at that.

    Anyway I am putting a bid in for the e200 in 9 mins time (it finishes in 10) because the other phone just went in the three figures!

    Yeah, head of the price for an E200 even in excellent condition - I wouldn't pay more than £50 or so for one. C500 if you're after one of them - definitely don't pay over £120 or so as they are about that price brand new from Orange shops I believe.
