    Well ive had the tmo usa g-1 ...since it came out ....

    Been reading about the hero since its been announced ..and it seems like a fantastic phone.and it doesnt look like my area will be getting it soon.

    So my g/f decided to preorder me the hero yesterday ....

    The cheapest i found it was 393 pounds including international shipping.

    On superetrader.co.uk

    ill take pix and post em once i get it.

    Anyone else buying an unlocked one?

    I probably will as Vodafone have the best 3G coverage round my way and the best international deals. It's a shame, I think the white model is ugly TBH, I much prefer the pictures of Orange's graphite one. Perhaps it needs to be seen and felt in person.

    My contract is nearly up, I feel like I should be able to screw them out of something by way of an upgrade but I can't think what.

    Im going with Orange because the Graphite one looks so much better than the rest.
    Seeing it in pink and an array of colours on the website the Graphite looks lush and very grown up. The orange website doesnt have the best picture of it but seeing it close up I am really pleased with it

    I am on Vodafone also, and i am due an upgrade at the end of July, so i was a bit annoyed when Vodafone did not get the Hero. However, as i was looking about to see what upgrades were on offer, i found this Tariffs - HTC Hero? - Mobile Phones Direct .

    I can only assume that mobilephonesdirect.co.uk are shipping the Hero unbranded with Vodafone contract SIMs.

    I am going to give them a call on the 22nd and see what kind of deals they are offering on upgrades.
