Buying a Telly tablet

How do you buy a Telly Tablet without a mobile? I went to a VM store and they showed me one, but after 20 minutes of trying to find out how to sell me one they gave up. I contacted VM via Chat and they said that they only did technical support. None of the options when phoning up seem applicable.

Thanks.

Re: Buying a Telly tablet

Simple fix to the issue linked to by Frank. The user needs to ensure Android System webview is installed and up to date.

Or VM could have fixed the issue themselves before releasing the Telly tablet. Poor effort when releasing a new product.

Re: Buying a Telly tablet

I agree it is an odd one, as Android System webview is part of the core android OS.
