Anyone hear of Ngage going down in the UK. I know from looking at the EBgames.com, the price went down to $199 (120) in the states. Last i Look its still 229.99 here in the UK. What the shit is that??

I am not sure if i would trust the 2nd hand market in turkey! Is it safe??? Even if it is, doesn't help me here.

i just say it to you for a price comparisson... not telling you can or cannot trust the 2nd hand market... if you have a chance to buy a 2nd hand product from Turkey, like everywhere you can`t trust completely everyone. only places that you are sure...

for a phone thats been out 2 weeks, i do not think the 2nd hand market is good at all. but thanks for the price comparison, as i am tempted to get one online from the states, and wait the few days. just to save the money.

i have some friend who bought when it first comes out and now they want to change it. i think they have a money pool... but they do this. one of my friends sold one just for $100... and it`s just used 4 or 5 times only...

If you want one from the US.. you may have to get a friend over there (or if you are going there on hols/business) to get you one. I doubt whether EB or gamestop will ship it to a UK address.. and if they did you would have to pay VAT/Import Duty and Shipping on it which would probably wipe out any savings you make.

Anyhow why no just get it on a cheap Tmobile contract where u can get the gage for 25.. after a year and 9000 free minutes (offpeak) its still less than the sim free price..
