  1. Hello man!! I have 2 little questions...

    Is this mobile exactly as you bought in Merimobiles.com or you have installed any application before the video???

    And... Does the S7180 work with any mobile company for example in Spain??

    Thaks SchlumpfiHB for your links!!!

    1. Hi :-) I ALWAYS install additional apps, games and launchers in my videos, that's the only way to be able to show the phones performances.

      I don't know anything about the mobile companies in Spain but this is a quadband, so it should operate on any GSM network on earth.

      Please check the video at about 4:41, it'll show you all the frequencies the phone supports and check with your service provider if they operate on these frequencies.

  2. Ok,,, I think there is no problem with the companies in Spain. And in relation with languages,,, Did you install anything?? because in your video appear lots of languages but in Merimobile page says that there is only english.

    Sorry of this stupid questions but I don't undersatand many things about mobiles and I wished to have the same style as you have in that video but I think is quite dificoult!! :)

    Thaks you!!!

  8. hello there!
    I've been watching your videos on youtube for the last few days, and i'm interested on some of these phones.
    Do you usually buy them in bulk to re-sell? if so how can one buy them?
    Or do you usually buy them for testing, and after doing so sell the as used phones? if so how can I get one :)
    I'm from portugal, and here buying these mobiles from china usually means they get stuck on costums and sometimes you get charged with contraband cause they're copies :)
    thanks

    1. Cool, thanks :-) That looks even more complicated than what I had to do to root the phone ;-)

      Delete
    2. Youre right - but it is the only way by now... -_-

    3. Not really, I rooted it SLIGHTLY differently, still a little complicated but worked. The short version:

      MTK Droid Tools: Create a scatter file
      SP Flash Tool: Readback Bootimage and Recoveryimage
      MTK Droid Tools: Patch Bootimage and Recoveryimage
      SP Flash Tool: Flash the patched Bootimage and Recovery Image
      Final Step: Run a little script to push Superuser on the phone.
