Has any one been offered a replacement phone because there is not supported any more.

The wife had a Nokia 6110 navigator that failed and was offered a Nokia 6700 slide or a reconditioned X6, both I was told had GPS. She picked the 6700, but I do not think it has GPS, I does not have standalone GPS from what I can find and now they do not have any X6's left.

How does the GPS work on the 6700 and what phone could I get that would work?

What is the difference between Vodafone Sat nav compatible and Built in GPS (OK, built in should have a GPS receiver).

I am loosing the rag with they ether they are not explaining it well or I am missing something.

She is on a basic tariff phone and text and only uses the GPS once or twice a month.

Losing my rag with all phone companies now. Seems like no-ones interested in keeping your business.
Make sure you telll them your sendin the phone back. I think you have 7 days cooling off period. Otherwise you'll be stuck with a lump of crap. Been there done that.
Sorry I can't help on the phones I haven't use those models myself.

surely this would enable you to get out of your contract would it not? i would certainly wait and see if it would mean a breach of contract on there part, and then get out of the contract andget a new one, with a decent phone.

Dude call the call centre and kick off. Vodafone have something called believe the customer at the moment, and they will give you virtually anything. Trust me, I used to be a manager there. ha ha.

Got a new X6 yesterday, they could not get a recon.

She seams to like it and has full GPS, I think run to the end of the contract and get it unlocked before moving on to SIM only.

I do not think vodafone can read, well not English, when I was in the store he showed me my account and I was still expected to repeat everything again.
