I`m on Orange but got from CPW so was not locked not sure if you get direct from Orange store though, I flashed with the Froyo beta so no you dont HAVE to wait.

Sorri I didn`t reply I forget where I post LOL, if it`s not too late....
1. I didn`t have to root
2. Froyo was to buggy so I went for JM5 and its a lot better than stock
3.Froyo was still a little laggy but should be ok on official release
I use JM5 with one click lag fix and it now has zero lag
I was going to go for the Desire but after a lot of reading up and with the fast Processor, video chip and super amoled screen I went for GS, i did like the interface on the Desire though but I used a few widgets and it looks similar now.
It`s the best phone I`ve had and I`m still playing with it after a month

Good luck whatever you get (have got)
