    Bad day for Argos, by UK law they have to honour the sales that went through before they pulled it.

    The link is working again and it's selling for 119.99 ($187.00usd) That has to be an error.

    Update 2: In spite of the words of comfort that Argos offered to us over the phone, the company's taken to Facebook to inform its customers that the Lumia 800 was mispriced and all orders at the erroneous price will be cancelled. Cancellation text messages have also been sent out to those who thought they'd managed to complete a successful order
    Buuuuu!!

    I'll just phone Argos and let them know then RustyU. Maybe speed up your cancellation.

    Always like to try and help. :D

    Not true, unfortunately for consumers. This happens all the time and people pretty much never get the goods.

    In the states, if there is a published pricing error, all the vendor needs to do is post a disclaimer about the pricing error.

    Same, and it's always in the small print. "Errors & Omissions Excepted".

    Poor buggers.

    Can't say I have much sympathy for the ones on Hot UK Deals who had bought 25 of them though :P
