    Just been into my local T-Mobile store to check if they will have the Handsets in come Friday, when I am due my upgrade.

    Was advised they won't be getting them in stock until the end of the next week which isn't too bad, except as demand is high stock will likely be kept for new customers :mad:

    Called up T-Mobile and they said they have a big backlog and it could be a month before I get the handset :mad:

    Checked with another couple of providers in the shops in town and they are out of stock too and don't know when they will be back in.

    Really not wanting to wait a month on this...

    Seems this is a popular handset...

    I've had mine for ten days now - bought from mobiles.co.uk, which is part of Car Phone Warehouse, ordered one day and received it the next - they were practically the only ones who had stock, and you get an unlocked phone too. The T-Mobile deal is by far the best for a smartphone that needs mobile internet.

    Am I right in thinking that I can upgrade my contract through the CPW even though I never took it out through them?

    So I can stick with T-Mob on the same number etc but do it through the CPW?

    If so might give them a call tomorrow and see if they will have any in stock...

    I bought mine from a Virgin high street store due to low stock levels, it's (very lightly) branded but unlocked (02 sim card works fine in it), unlimited minutes, text, internet

    What's these crappy data policies you mention mate ?

    I'm on Vodafone with a Blackberry and am looking to upgrade to the desire on 25th June.

    When I looked on the Vodafone website yesterday the data package was as its been for weeks. It states on the price plan that its 500mb a month however when you click for a detailed breakdown of the tariff it states unlimited mobile internet.

    I've read somewhere that the 500mb is quoted for fair usage reasons and that people haven't been charged when they have gone over the 500mb.

    Do you have other information because I don't want to upgrade and then be limited with data ?

    My current plan has unlimited internet so I'm going to tell them I want exactly the same deal with the upgrade, hopefully they will accommodate me !!!!

    Bully check here, the Bitterwallet have written a couple of open letters to Vodafone regarding the data plans and as far as I remember it's no longer a fair usage policy but an over limit charge.... (does that make sense? Probably not but it explains it all the the various articles). Read through, all the details are on there on various posts, including the letters and Vodafones replies.

    Worth mentioning though that the Desire will get 1Gb usage policy for net use.

    I just wouldn't go with Voda because, well, I just don't like them...

    With T-Mobile you get at the very least 1gb and you should get 3gb (standard for Android phones direct from T-Mobile) and you won't be charged for exceeding your quota.

    I just quoted the best deal I could find on the web to T-Mobile's closure department and they matched immediately
    500mins
    Unlimited texts
    Unlimited internet (possibly 3gig cap, or maybe 10)
    25 notes a month

    Never had any in stock so just went to local store and picked it up over the counter.

    the t-mobile android fair usage is 3gig and a higher speed than regular unlimited net, also if you go over you only get slower speeds no extra charges.
