    Popped into a Voda shop in Hove, East Sussex last thursday and the guy said "out of stock currently, coming in 2 days", thought i'd order the upgrade online yesterday as I had a spare 5mins to do it (and the shop is 20mins walk from work!)....got the e-mail today:
    "Unfortunately we have suffered a surprosingly high demand for the HTC Desire, which means that it`s unexpectedly out of stock

    Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. We hope to have further stock available within 7-10 working days and will contact you again once your order has been dispatched "



    :mad: I have patience, but I might take the order number into the store tomorrow to see if they do have any in stock!

    I received the same email when I upgraded online and then, two days later, I received another email saying that it had been dispatched. I imagine that the ten day thing is a worst case scenario which they use so they don't make a promise they can't keep.

    I imagine that you will probably face a similarly short delay but it is definitely worth the wait.

    I had EXACTLY the same situation. I suggested to the online ordering centre that I could pick one up from the store. Unfortunately the one that was on back order from the online depot was the ONLY one I was allowed to have, as this one was registered to me. It was irrelevant anyway as I tried 5 different Vodaphone stores, and they all were out of stock.

    So you'll probably have the same wait I did. However that wait was only about 7 days. And trust me! It's well worth it. The Desire is an awesome piece of kit. The wife keeps taking the piss as I NEVER stop playing with it LOL.

    Be patient. Like I said, it's worth it.

    yeah I only started looking at an upgrade last week and saw the Desire for the first time in the shop on thursday! never had an Android phone or anything like it before (I refuse to do anything iPod!) so reading all about in these forums and online has truly whet my appetite for it...and I love gadgets!

    blimey that is long :confused:

    Try phoning all the Vodaphone/Carphone Warehouse shops in your area.

    If any of them have it in, ask them to hold it for you :)

    I have just received the following email from Vodafone

    Hello,
    Firstly let me thank you for your patience over the delay in receiving your handset.
    We’ve received news that the HTC Desire will not be available to order until the end of June.
    Because of this news, we would like to offer you the opportunity to order the HTC Legend as an alternative device.
    Should you wish to take advantage of this offer, we will reduce your monthly line rental by a further

    Yeah, I would just get in the queue with an online order. Like you say there is not that long to wait. As soon as they become available the will ship the phone out to you. That is what happened with me earlier this month

    It's ironic that a lot of people chose the Desire to be different, but it's now sold out everywhere on most networks and may become extremely common! :D

    I went to 9 different stores in Amsterdam and it was sold out in 8 of the stores except for the last store that I went to, obviously. They had 2 left in stock and the guy who helped me told me there was a 16 week queue. Not sure if that is true though..

    The reason for the long queue list according him was because, Samsung, who produces the screen for the HTC Desire, is having some difficulties.
