First post, first dumb question.

Are these phones only available in red, like the dummy I've seen in stores? The SO Phone pages are down now, but the cached page shows blue phones, like Rogers sells (odd, huh, that Rogers doesn't have the red ones instead?). I'd rather have blue, given a choice, and if I know some 7-11 stores have blue I can drive a bit. Thanks.

I was going to go out and get a SO phone tonight, but since the phone page has been down all day, I'm figuring something might be changing...

I have the SO Nokia 5130, and it's blue. Same thing as the store by me, the display model is red, but all the ones they have in stock are blue.

Thanks. I looked in a couple 7-11s and the dummies were both red, so I just assumed...also red on the SO Phone page yesterday. Hadn't decided if I just wanted the SO SIM (i.e. cheap phone) or the 5130 at the time, so didn't even check 5130 stock (would have been smart...).

In your experience, what does the SO Phone page being down mean? Cheaper prices? Maybe just changing the 5130 colour.

Edit: almost all the 5130s within miles of here are red. Most stores say they've *never* seen a blue one. I don't think they actually look... Notice I said "almost all" are red, I'm pretty sure you can change that to "all" now. I got the only blue one I found by calling around in the eastern burbs. I also picked up an 8GB microSDHC card the other day, which I'm debating trying (can't take it back if it doesn't work). I have a 4GB one already, that works OK. The 8GB one is medium speed (4), and I wonder if the problems some people have with the 8GBs are because they are too slow? Anyway, it was recommended to me to not try less than a 4-speed in a phone of this type, apparently they can choke on the cheaper 2-speed ones.

I just bought a blue one yesterday, got it from the orangeville ontario location. If you do phone around, it will say the colour on the label posted on the bottom of the box.

I like the red ones better than the blue ones. It's the grey ones that are hard to find. Has anyone got a grey one?
