well I'm furious, ordered from Spark on the 22nd, got confirmation of order. I received no further emails so was concerned as it was being delivered to my work as no one at home. Got into chat to be told order was declined and to talk to dun & bradstreet for a copy of my credit report or ring approvals. I rang approvals they said it wasn't to do with credit the person didn't read file it was due to not being my home address so they rang and left a message (which I never checked so I take that on chin)

 

 

 

anywho I asked where to now, told go to a branch and uplift, do that they say declined and also I won't get ear buds as deal finished (deep breathes saying to myself not these guys fault)

 

ring approvals same guy says my credit is fine, ask to be put to retentions as I'm not happy.

 

 

 

Retentions check it out and said its been declined due to credit, I say I am fine, she rings brad & dunstreet, few minutes latter told my credit rating is fine, right.

 

Ask about buds told to wait, few minutes later no that deals finished can I hand my phone to branch person, talks to her and hang up Spark person confirms no buds I cancel purchase.

 

 

 

I checked messages and sure enough its a call from, wait for it, approvals saying ring back which I didn't obviously.

 

Current thinking is to change suppliers, I'll see how I feel in morning but whatever i won't get ear buds so rubbish day

 

 

 

Vent over, sorry :)

IronH:

I'm also wondering if we'll get onscreen controls for some of our connected stuff, eg it would be great if it has an onscreen colour/brightness wheel for the home lighting. 



Without wishing to get too far off topic, yes you get graphical controls. The one that immediately springs to mind is Hue lighting. You swipe to get to your controls from the home screen, or if you use a voice for a specific light, colour and brightness controls appear on the screen.
Sorry, I forgot you said you already had G Homes. If you like using the speakers, you’ll really like the Home Hub. The only reason I didn’t go for the Noel Leeming deal for the S10 is I already have two Home Hubs.

PBtech emailed saying shipping is delayed until possibly Monday.

 

I'm not too fussed, as it would just be sitting in some post office over the weekend anyway. But I hope it does indeed ship Monday.
Cancelling will only lose me the preorder bonuses.

All they need to do is communicate most will be happy with that acknowledgement.

It does annoy me somewhat that I preorder through Vodafone's offer, which states be one of the first to receive.....

Well as its panning out I'll be (as are others) be one of the last!

Ordered it direct from Samsung EPP on the 5th and got it on the 6th, significant discount due to not being in a bundle :)

 

 

So far have found the fingerprint recognition isn't the greatest (check for updates, there's an update out that improves it) but I'm really happy with pretty much everything else.

 

 

Also wasn't able to order a cover for whatever reason, putting one in your cart permanently breaks your account.
