  • I would totally buy that to replace my Samsung Focus as it has served me well for the past few years.
  • it's actually been available for €199 (incl. VAT) from a large number of german retailers for a while, fully unbranded and unlocked, actual price and not temporary discount. A lot of them ship in europe and worldwide. Picked one up last week after I got dunked in a pool together with my trusty Omnia 7 (rip old friend, rip)
  • ...and still no UK deals on any accessories for Nokia :-(
  • Refurbished, this is❔
  • Brand new
  • You say somethin bout my momma❔
  • It's also available on amazon.de for less then 200 Euro's....
  • 32GB at this price and Il buy it for no apparent reason
  • Less then 200€ in Germany
  • shame US Expansys doesnt have deals like this.
  • ahhhh damn this phone is still alive... WOW PERFECT FOR MY MOM
  • Can I order from US the USA expansys says 349
  • Why so cheap?
  • Careful if you're on Three...mms doesn't work with the EU variant that Expansys sell...;-)
  • Be careful. It seems that Samsung is NOT updating these cheaper unlocked/unbranded Ativ S i8750 variants  with the GDR2 update. We have threads going on in the WPcentral Ativ S forum and no one has received the GDR2 update with the above mentioned model.
    I bought my i8750 new from NegriElectronics for $315 a few months ago-- very inexpensive but I don't believe it will be supported by Samsung with future updates.
    Hopefully WPCentral will investigate this with Samsung.
  • Well mines been updated to GDR2
  • "these cheaper variants" its the same variant but the price has dropped. Got mine unlocked for 180€ circa
  • My unlocked/unbranded Ativ S has been updated to GDR2.
  • Every Ativ S is updated. regardless of the price.
    why don't you link the german shops?
    It's about £170 including shipping
