N95 Study

Hello,

I Have received an E-Mail from "Nokia 360 Smartphone Study" regarding an invite to trial the N95 for free. I currently have Nokia 360 software installed on my N80, which logs and monitors usage and sends info back to Nokia for "review and user satisfaction" purposes.

I have signed up usingt he form supplied, the question is, is this legit? Has anyone else had this email, and am i going to be getting a N95 for free in the not too distant future???

I had an email from phonestudy for testing on the N80, but I already had an N80.... after about 3 or 4 weeks I got some vouchers for M&S totalling 50.... so I was happy... I tried to sign up for the N95 test too... but from the 35 mins I got my sms to getting online to sign up Id missed the boat!!!


Now youve told me what you have... Im pissed!!

I wouldn't get your hopes up too much - I must have applied to test at least half a dozen phones over the last 5 years and never heard a thing back!

You are correct in saying you need to be a member of club Nokia though.

I got one of those e-mails too.

Signed up within 9 minutes of receiving it so I'm hoping I get an N95 through the post. Anyone have a good idea of how long it takes for the phone to arrive? do they even send you a confirmation?

Damn, sounds like I didn't get in then as I haven't received anything from them yet.
Shame, I was quite looking forward to a new phone for free. I thought I would've got in though as I filled in the form near enough instantly and they took my address etc;
Maybe next time. Thanks for the info.

Well that extra tid-bit has indeed got me crossing my fingers. I love my N80 but the thought of GPS on a phone has really got me excited. It'll make Geotagging my photos so much easier. I think I'll e-mail them myself. I assume you just replied to the e-mail address they sent the e-mail from?
