This does not count in EU countries like Belgium. Those who ordered
the original batch were not notified the phone had flaws like gps,
buzz, lack of bass.... (slow glamo was)
it was even promoted as an end-user phone, not a developer phone
it said that the hardware was fully working and only software needed some work

there is a two year warranty on ALL electrical devices sold here
