    What are your opinions on these Chinese clones?

    If one could get a phone similar to the originals and not cost as much, wouldn't you think it'd still be a good deal? so what if it isn't as good as the original. As long as it works though, right? And If one has the extra money.. Why not?

    Like I think I like this phone..

    Sorry, haven't being around the internet. This phones are like any other phone, thought they are ssold as smartphone, it's only a phone. As of now, there are various in the market, Sciphones brand, fake Sciphone, which are a copy of the Sciphone i68 (+). They work pretty damn good, with complete programing. It last like any other brand or phone model. The best thing is that you can manage the phone as you wish ( in terms of flashing) and update the firmware. There ae some new models coming out at a more expensive price. For example, the N21 seems like a promising smartphone, with WiFi, and a 5.0mp camera.
    People complaint about these phones, haven't you ever got a phone that has being factory damage? Or that has being DOA? Is just like any other phone. Just make sure that the seller gives you a warranty, if there is no warranty, stay way from it.

    My friend just got a Sciphone model i9tt. It looks like an iPhone and you can open the back to insert a new battery and put in 2 SIM cards. He uses T-Mobile pre-paid so he can't get the internet or other services. I don't think he can even download itunes. He paid $70 but is it worth it if you can't do these things?

    The only reason that he won't be able to download anything or use the internet is:
    1. He have to configure the wap set up himself, the phones is unlocked so it have no wap or gprs set up.
    2. He is currently using pre-paid, as far as I understand pre-paid sim card are for the use of making phone calls only. If he have any doubt all he have to do is call t-mobile service center and asked for the sim to be open for the internet and mms.
    I had set up quite a few of these phone for T-mobile and worked.

    I know these. These are the phones made by some small factories in the south of China. They call them emulational mobile phone. These phones are like the really ones very much. But the functions are totally different. So they are very cheap, also has bad quality. Sometimes some stores sell them as the really ones to cheat the customers.

    as I know, hiphone is the most branded china mobile, the appearance looks the same as original one. my friend buy a clone iphone 3gs with 3.5inch touch screen, dual sim card, quan-band, wifi, GPRS, 2GB memory and other apps like MSN, facebook etc, only cost $158, currently it work well, so I think you can have a try on this iphone clone.

    yes, it's very cost-effective, she buy it from an china mobile phones wholesale website named micsourcing, I'm really interested in purchasing one, but my own E66 is working well, there's no need to buy a new phone.
