    Phones4u have my Xperia in stock. I'm off to get it. If anyone has any questions about it let me know and I'll try and answer them.

    I thought it wasn't available from phones4u till the 13th March.

    When you have time can you give us your thoughts on how responsive/unresponsive the capacitive keys are please?

    I just nipped into phones4u and had a quick look at the dummy model of this phone in white, and it looked really nice.

    Arrived in the shop to be greeted by a new shiny Arc S!!! They'd taken the order down wrong. They seemed surprised when I said I didn't want to order the S through them and walked out of the shop.

    How disappointing for you. I would have told them where to go.

    Obviously I'm irritated but if I'd made the trip solely for that I'd be fuming. Fortunately I was going to the shops anyway.

    The dummy model looks really nice.

    Yes, I looked in their earlier and looked at the white one and it looked very nice. Didn't get to feel it in the hand though.

    The stories i have read about phones4u incompetence towards customers is deplorable.

    I've calmed down now and finding the whole incident quite funny.

    I was glad I saw a dummy model though. The phone looks good in all the pictures, but in real life it looks amazing.

    P4U are a joke, I've only dealt with them once before years ago and they cocked up the monthly plan, cancelled within a day or so and have not gone back since.

    I think I'm going to get it directly from O2 now. I think it's usually safer getting it direct from the network operator. I know that 99% of the time third party sellers are ok, but unfortunately I was part of the 1%

    I will be finding the best deal I can online and taking a printout of it into the shop and threaten to go somewhere else if they can't match it though. In the shopping centre near me O2, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, T-Mobile, Orange, Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U are all within 50 metres of each other so they can't risk the chance I'm blagging (it worked last time I upgraded!).
