    Hello droids, Im done some reasearch and thought this handset was good value at (UK)27.50, 900 minutes, unlimited texts and internet(500mb) so snapped it up on 24 months.

    Love the swipe and screen. A huge jump from a dinorsor type phone before.

    However orange lied to me and said this phone would come pre installed with 2.2. Its doesn't. Niether is there any conformation of a date for when it will arrive. This looks as if it could be past my 7 days cooling off period.
    I particualy wanted to evaluate 2.2 before commiting to the 24 month contract as i believe 2.2 can play iplayer and skype, let alone improved speed and peformance compared to 2.1.

    The phone comes with some orange junk pre installed and I take it 2.2 will be tailored around their pre loaded software.

    I only had one episode of the phone crashing so far.

    I have found yahoo to be very slow at loaded emails on the phone, gmail better, which also displays big viewable thumbnails unlike yahoo mail. The internal galaxy s email program doesnt seem to display thumnails at all.

    What are my options?

    return and wait for 2.2 and get phone again?

    Remove their software. ? Can this be done? Easy?

    Will this mean I could get 2.2 quicker?

    Does that invalidate warranty?

    Is there need to lagfax after 2.2
