  • Phones4u over the years really have had great partnership with Nokia. I don't live in the UK but it's nice to see this announcement
  • What does "ranging" mean in this context? Selling? Offering? Is this a UK use of the word? Just curious.
  • I'm from England and have never seen it used like this either. So you're not alone.
    I just hope it isn't exclusive to EE like it was before. 
  • I don't think it will be an EE exclusive, as O2 are getting their own version of the 1020.
  • I'm also from the UK, and I have never seen the word "ranging" used in such a way -- it may be a mistake by the author?
  • No its not a mistake. Ranging is perfectly acceptable. It means to stock, or show off. Its a derivative of "range". And you have all heard "range of phones" before....i presume.
  • I'm sorry but what you have said does not make sense. Furthermore, ranging does not mean "to stock". However, it does mean "order" as in "rank" or "class". Therefore, this suggests this is a mistake by the author.
  • It means "adding to their already big range" - urban slang. Like biking, smsing, kiking and whatsapping.
  • Eh? the urban dictionary says that the word "ranging" can mean any word you want it too.
  • Huh.  I figured it must be a common UK phrase or something.  Seems bizarre.  Perhaps Rich can weigh in and explain himself.  :-)
  • It is definitely not a common UK phrase, and I would also like see Rich explanation of the word.
  • I bet the ranging relates to the rumors of different memeory sizes
  • I think ranging is a mistake, reads more as stocking
  • Sigh
  • Lol sigh :P
  • Yeah, I remember when I was ordering my "sim free" Lumia 920 from them. Funny thing was, for this particular phone sim free did not mean unlocked. They sold me a sim free phone that could only work with EE, TM, and Orange. The funny thing is that even they did not know that those phones are locked because I specifically asked them and they said sim free means unlocked!!! So I had to return the phone and stopped trusting them with my money.
  • You only have search the net to see that EE are terrible, when it comes to ripping customers off.
  • As long as its not another EE exclusive!
  • Ranging? What does that mean in this context
  • Rich is keeping it secret... sssshhhhhh!
  • Cant wait to range myself one of these lone rangers to watch power rangers on :P
