    Hi guys (and gals),

    i thought i would start this thread because i don't want to feel like the only person that didn't receive the Desire! When do you expect to see your phone for the first time?

    i'm hoping for Monday afternoon, but i reckon i'll see it tuesday...

    I'm not too bothered though! Just jealous of the people that got them today!!

    I was hoping for Saturday, but have been told it's Tuesday (I guess posted on Monday for next day delivery).
    Luckily I'm off all week :), but unluckily I won't get to play with it properly until Wednesday night :( (I'm off all week, but have to keep my 5yr old son occupied during half term. Add to that the fact that I'll be at the football Tuesday night means I won't get a real good look until Wednesday evening).
    I suppose this all means I'll get to read everyone's 1st impressions & will know what to look out for when I do get it.

    It's OK! We will let you know how awesome the phone is before then!

    Are you from America? Can't you get the 4G Evo?

    August is a long time. Time enough for a better phone to be out at that point. I would wait if i were in your position.

    Wanted an android phone for ages and thought that exactly... I'll get the G1, no I'll wait to see how they improve... so I waited and last August spotted a used G2 on the T-Mob site, blagged them on the tariff and a few months down the line I now want the Desire!!

    Blokes and gadgets eh???

    I just hope the G2 has got enough oomph to run the 2.1 update (if/when it arrives!)

    I received the package on Saturday, it was the wrong phone.... After speaking to them I should be getting it Tuesday but I don't have my hopes too high...

    Really sucky to be honest, the wrong phone was a t-mobile pulse....

    Recorded delivery (which is how the phone is sent as we need to sign for it...) can be anywhere between 1-3 working days. You could be seeing it tomorrow! I'm hoping that i do!

    I know, probably jinxed it!

    I can't believe i've sunk to the level of browsing the royal mail website for good news! I just find it annoying that they don't give an estimated delivery date when you put in the tracking code.

    Would make things a lot easier. But where's the fun in that eh?
