On your ad on your site its says waterproof, is that your wording or theirs?
I thought it had a low IP rating thus only splashproof?

Cheers

Hi John, aye very good thank you.

The waterproof wording is wrong in the strict sense and I will change it, thanks for highlighting it.

The phone has an immersion guarantee, which in my book means it is waterproof; but no it is not yet deemed waterproof.

I appreciate it.

The durability report has the word waterproof in it, but to be safe I will trim the usage.

Phone delivery update...

Thanks to everyone who did go ahead and order one of these phones. And thanks for everyone's patience. Sadly we are continuing to experience delivery problems... We had hoped the phones would be sent out directly by Durrocomm, but this has not turned out to be practical. Then they were being sent to us for re-sending, this was thrown into disarray by the weather. However the weather has cleared and the deliveries have all been caught up on - but still no phones!

All of this is compounded because not nearly all those who said they wanted one ordered one, so the deal was just not possible in the guise we all hoped.

Everyone who has ordered one at the price discussed on here will get one, your money now rests with Durrocomm who are not being very communicative at all sadly. The 150 quid price has turned out to be a loss leader, one that we are happy to carry in the spirit of RIB.net!

Thanks again for the interest and for your patience.

Martin , thanks for this update and e mail. I have the MD's tel number for REEDS is he worth a call and e mail from a very unsatisfied customer(not with you Martin). Perhaps he needs a shot of reality in a world market that we are told is shrinking.

Unfortunately we could not get the deal to work with Reeds because of the lack of confirmed orders, so the phones are coming direct from Durrocomm.

Reeds have been very helpful and enabled us to offer their online subscription at a reduced price.

Phones en route!

Hi again!

It turns out that the phones were accidentally sent on a 7 day delivery rather than 24 hour, non the less we got them in this morning.

They have now all gone out according to the delivery method requested.

Once again sorry for the delay.
Martin

I've just seen this:-

Is this the extra service that was to be part of the phone deal?

Just when you think it's safe...
