    I was looking around the web for a new phone and came across the following site:

    http://www.themobilematrix.com/index.html

    I don't know whether it is real. If it is it looks like i'd be waiting a while to recieve the phone.

    It also came up as a sponsored link in google. Don't know if google checks these sites for authenticity before they allow them?

    Anyone tried this before?

    Pyramid schemes are just a con, somewhere down the line a lot of people are going to get screwed. I'd stay clear of it.

    I think I might start a pyramid scheme, its always the person who starts it that comes out on top, well as long as they dont get arrested or anything like that

    so you never thought of reading into the how it works then..

    you have to hope theres another 7 people as stupid as you to get any hope of getting a phone.

    just another scam.

    I already had a Nokia 3410 and was looking at getting a new one. Since this post was started i invested in a Sony Ericsson T630 for £200 sim free which i can use with my pocket pc via bluetooth for accessing the internet almost anywhere. I am very pleased with it.
