    i'm getting itchy now that i know people are getting theirs. waiting for new phones is always torture...
    i guess i'm just going to end up waiting for mpd to get them. but, if i heard that cpw near me (canary wharf) had them in stock, i'd probably be there at lunch signing up to some rubbish contract because i'm impatient... lol

    As I've said before, It really does depend on

    1: How much you want to pay
    2: How desperate you want it.

    Sure I would like the latest tech, but I'm in no real hurry, my hero is serving me well enough :).

    Also if I was to cancel the MPD deal, I'd go the T-Mob direct route as that way i get a 3GB data allowance...how long for since its merged with Orange is another thing, but still xD

    just to add i made a mistake they never took the money for the handset i was thinking of something else

    spencer maybe u should consider going t mobile direct just even for the data package?

    ive got to have anew number but will switch my old one to payg until everyone knows the new one i could start porting it to another netowrk then back again but i dont know if i can be bothered

    anyone done that?

    Never had a problem porting my number to a new contract... I'm sure they're not supposed to be allowed to be arsy about that any more.

    I imagine that networks try to discourage you from taking out an entirely 'new' contract with them hence make it difficult to move your number internally. Probably wouldn't advertise that they are willing to do it at all unless you whinge lots.

    With a few people getting the phone from P4U sooner than MPD...

    Should I cancel MPD and go with P4U?? On the orange 18month deal, similar price.. BUT will the phone come with all the Orange bloatware preinstalled??

    I will wait... Maybe I should just grow up and develop some patience??;)

    Thanks, I just called two local P4U and both said they have no stock, one store said stock (3) arriving tomorrow. Second story said stock (unknown) arriving tomorrow... Both stores mentioned deliveries @ noon...

    I bet MPD will ship the phones out earlier. They've set the date at 26 just so they dont dissapoint. But watch when you get a knock on the door with a parcel. That Grin on your face (and mine) will be soo big. It'll scare the postman :D
