Pretty ignorant responses guys... then again.. that's what happens when property values go down.... ignorance can now afford what was once a premium. Bravo.
Although I do plan on purchasing this sometime in the future I have to agree. I understand this is a business they are trying to run but why the somewhat unreasonable fees associated with buying something via the most popular method available? I have no idea what a 'western union' is but I pay for everything including rent and my bills via paypal because it is just that easy. Doesn't seem reasonable to charge more for easier transaction on both ends.

I can't believe so many of you don't even know what Western Union is....it's been around since the 1850's and is a much larger company than Paypal (not to say there's anything wrong with paypal) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_union They basically invented transferring money without physically handing it from one person to another.

It's all about convenience, my man. I went to their site to see if it was something I could just do online. It's not the end of the world, but it seems that if I do it on line, someone will have to pick up the money in person.. how is that more convenient for them?


I am waiting to see what jolly has to say tonight. I really would like one of these.. but again, I feel it is ridiculous.


and ot the guy who replied earlier about a service they don't offer.. That's not my problem man. I am the consumer and I use PAYPAL. Tis is not a necessity, it is not a need.. it is a luxury want, and a fairly expensive one. It is ridiculous to charge a premium so that I can stay in my comfort zone.

anyone who feels differently-- is a fool. I'm sorry. BUT.. there are people out there searching on eBay RIGHT NOW willing to pay far too much for stupid little trinkets because THEY feel they are valuable.. "more money than brains" comes to mind. Fools searching for fools gold. I'm guilty of it myself, so I'm not trying to be totally hypocritical. But to charge a 30.00 fee to use PAYPAL, AND THEN TELL ME I HAVE TO PAY THE PAYPAL FEE is ridiculous!!!! I agreed to the 30.00 premium.This was at least spit on first.. the fee= putting it in with NO lube.

Unfortunately, I have more brains than money and I DON'T like being taken advantage of.

We will see what jolly says.

If I was you, I would threaten to report them to Paypal. As a merchant, asking you to outright pay the fee goes against their TOS.

I think if you have a problem with the way they run their business you can just shut up and go cry somewhere else and not buy their product and period. You don't need to come here and tell us how unsuccessful it was. For some of us , we were happy paying less and using western union because we had used it before, if you don't like it that's your personal opinion and problem.

Quick Yuan: Hi Friend

it can work with 3G and wifi .
but you need to use the 3G and wifi modem .
we have the 3G and wifi model is 60 usd
regards

So Really? Wifi works?
