Smile Nokia N95 8GB Simfree UK sPEC

Hi.
Anyone know where can we buy a Nokia N95 8gb UK version simfree. I have placed orders with a few online retailers but when there handsets came they were the US version handsets. Any help.

you could try nokia direct, though they only have the non-8GB one on their site at the moment... ??

The differnce between the US and UK version of the habdset are that you are not covered by Nokia UK under the warranty if anything goes wrong, if the phone is a european spec then its's alright as this would be covered under Nokia UK warranty. Mphone sell the US version.

Question to Gavin151, I ordered one from play.com there handset was also a US version, thats why I sent it back, unless they have got a different batch. Did you check the imei number with Nokia, they will be able to tell you if it is the UK version or the US, thats what i did i rang nokia.

Hi there, ah interesting - I just assumed it was UK (from play). To be honest i am personally not bothered if it is US EXCEPT I decided tonight (10 miutes ago) that I was going to try and get it replaced since the wobbly slider has finally beaten my resolve to ignore.

The thing is....on the play.com website I cant select the "return this item" button but I can for toher items.... which worries me that it is a US issue and play.com wont exchange it :-(

Did you have any trouble getting a refund for the US one you got sent?

Sadly the UK SIM FREE Version of the N95 8GB will not be available until Vodafone's exclusive deal expires in Jan 2008.

The USA model handsets being sold by most retailers at the moment are NOT covered by Nokia's 2 Year european Warranty, although most retailers are offering a 12 month warranty with them.

I was just outside 7 days but play.com were very good - the guy said a replacement would be sent as soon as they sent parcel force round to fetch the old one... they even offered to pick it up the same day I called on!

As it turns out I am still waiting on Parcelforce showing up though!
