    It is indeed in stock. I ordered from superetrader and they emailed me today to say Monday 28th is when they expect it. I'll keep my order with them till next week, if I get no joy I'll order through CPW

    Sadly, I can quite believe this.:( I suppose if manufacturing due dates are is slipping (for whatever reason) then releasing it a few weeks late but with 2.3, would seem like an attractive/sensible option.

    It's good news about Gingerbread, I think this device will really shine on 2.3.:)

    I'm not sure I'll give up (Yet) but it's pi55ing me off. :mad:

    I'm really doubtful that this is true, maybe it's just because it is frankly unbelievable, but no way would LG do this much of a marketing mistake, as they know the longer they wait to out this thing, the more cutomers they will lose.

    I would be perhaps be a little reassured if LG UK post the video un-boxing they promised as soon as they had a handset. I do hope your right.

    I've rang CPW everyday and still saying no stock.

    Annoyingly they also saying can't upgrade on this phone as it's Vodafone only.

    I f'ing hate T-Mobile!

    It's unusual for CW to be so restrictive as their phones are usually unlocked and therefore free to be used with any SIM/contract. I'm even more reassured I didn't wait now, as I'm on contract with Orange and this would have been the only way in for me as buying the phone outright wasn't an option. I would have been well gutted :(

    Well, superetrader told me mines would get dispatched today. Surprise Surprise it's not been. They're now saying Wednesday, same as Expansys.

    If it's not out this week i'm thinking of cancelling and getting an xperia arc, which is out this week

    Anyone else preordered from phones4u? I know they are part of carphone warehouse, but i have always got my phones from the them the day they come out on contract.

    What other dates have people got?

    Delivery Date

    They said at the time that they don't stock LG phones at all.
