    Try here mate. They ship worldwide.

    I know a couple guys in New Zealand who have ordered from them and talk highly of them.

    HTC Desire - Graphite from Clove Technology

    There is some delays at the moment with British air traffic grounded and them being out of stock.

    With regards to it working on your network you will need to find out what bands your Vodafone works on.

    Hope that link helps.

    At a guess because he's in the US, and the phone is from the UK so wont work correctly with their frequencies.

    Looking around the net, ebay etc, that link I posted above seems to be about the best price you're going to find it for.

    as far as US prices go, they are 6-700 on ebay. That clove site has them for 507. I would say go through Clove. and they do work in the US, just can't use 3G.

    But Clove site shows a 20pound hike today for the Desire. That sucks. Play.com is cheaper than that.

    I never used play.com or clove!
    I'm used to buy from amazon.com and I've shop and ship devilry service to Egypt from both ( UK and USA )
    I mean, i buy at USA or UK prices, and deliver to UK or USA addresses, and these products are shipped to Egypt cheaper than ever :)

    so, my last question, I know you are tired with me guys,
    what's the most trusted website to buy HTC desire? and what is the avarage price?

    Sorry for the late reply. But the best Egyptian website to check for Egyptian stores in EGPrices.com
    It will give you most of the "top stores" in Egypt and compare between the brands, models and prices.
    You can easily check the HTC Desire prices like this:
    EGPrices.com: "HTC Desire A8181" Price, Review, Compare in Egypt - From "B.Tech"
    There are many other browsing options. Also you can use it to keep track of the new mobiles that come to Egypt.
