    It's been gone six days now. Six days with no Desire and a crappy old Nokia. I thought I could cope. I mean, how bad could it be. Its only a phone. G-g-g-going c-c-c-cold t-t-t-turkey can't be that bad.

    So, should I just wait it out (the Nokia doesn't even have a camera ffs) or buy an Orange San Francisco (

    I think ultimately it depends on money. I mean if my desire was away for repair and I was using a crappy old nokia, sure I would be tempted to buy a san francisco just for a laugh and to practice rooting etc. It seems to be a great phone and a bargain at that price, plus a handy spare. But realistically, I wouldn't as I don't have

    I cracked the screen on my Desire on friday, phoned Orange Care on friday night, and they had replacement Desire to me on Saturday afternoon.

    Excellent service from Orange Care.

    Nope. Just checked last week's EuroMillions for the 3rd time and I still haven't won :p

    I was thinking that I could play with it for a few week's and sell it on eBay for most of what I paid for it (they're going for

    I had to wait nearly 4x weeks for HTC to fix a non existent motherboard problem (I knew what the fault was and it wasn't the mobo ;) )

    So I would say stick it out ... be strong.

    My Desire went back to HTC for repair 3 weeks ago, I have a crappy old motorola as a standby phone that can make calls AND send text messages, it even has a colour screen! memory is full tho with 20 text messages and it takes 2 days to send a text. I'm going out of my tiny little mind! I miss my desire so much and they have said it could be a further 2 weeks till i have her safely home, so I would do whatever it takes to numb the pain my friend, personally I have taken to drinking, heavily!

    Thirded ... (lol)

    I had a nightmare with them telling me several times they were on with the repair only to be told when I enquired next it's waiting for yet another part.

    But I did get a 4GB SD as compensation, which went well with the identical one EVERYONE gets with the phone when they buy it.

    Fingers crossed the OPs finds it's way back quicker ;)

    Personally, the SF for root practice would be my choice while I waited!
