Having just taken on a new role I’m having to get another mobile phone and mobile number.
It’s not such a big problem and, because I’m on Orange, I’ll just grab a BlackBerry for work but it has left me frustrated at Samsung and all of the mobile operators I’ve called this morning. The Samsung D880 is not available for love nor money. Well, it is for Â£190 but it’s my work phone so they’re not willing to pay anything. And I’m a cheapskate.
Actually, I’m not frustrated at Samsung, but i am at all of the other manufacturers. Why, why, why can they not make a phone with two sim cards? I’d be on Orange for both. I wouldn’t be losing them any business. It should still be part of the contract that I’d have to pay Â£X per month so what’s the problem with having two sim cards in one phone? Surely it saves Orange money by not needing give a second phone away with each contract.
It is one of my major requirements and the UK market simply aren’t delivering yet. Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Sony, LG and any other’s I’ve missed out. Could you please get your butts in gear and realise that people are carrying two phones around with them.
It is frustrating. It ruins a good pair of trousers. It is not environmentally sound. And it gets to more than just me.
Please, please, please, please make more than just the D880. And, most importantly, get these to the UK market.
(PS: You can buy a D880 at Expansys for 219 pounds and there are 13 in stock this morning.)
