    I ordered on Sunday and had an email a couple of days ago saying the "order is being processed and will be despatched shortly".

    As the online tracking tool is down I called them and now they tell me they are out of stock until 30th October.

    How disappointing

    I feel for you(as I type this out on my beauty of a keyboard). Perhaps they are just being conservative and will get it sooner. Is it really selling that well over there?

    I guess it must be. I started another thread about the 69.9% loyalty rate to Blackberry in the UK a week ago.

    it (Bold 9900 / 9930) has been selling extremely well in all locations ..

    so no surprise that it would be highly sought after in the UK also ....

    Its an absolutely amazing smartphone!! ...

    Don't worry .... You will be thrilled when you get it! .. I have been using it since August 8th (took it with me to 10 countries in Europe and Asia ) fantastic! ... absolutely amazing!!! ... in every way ... worth it!!!

    Vodafone have been having stock issues as well, really seems to be selling well here in the UK, I suppose as well though a lot of people may not have upgraded from the 9700 to the 9780 as it was basically the same! And now the full on Bold upgrade is here people will be more eager to pick it up.

    Another theory could be that production is not keeping up with demand due to QC issues. 3 weeks is a long time for O2 to be out of stock.

    That made me laugh

    My brother just signed up to Orange as they are the only ones with a signal at his home.

    As Orange just launched the 9900 they must be using their start up stock of 9900's. That could also explain why O2 and Voda are out of stock.

    Carphone does not do the 18.50pm tariff and does not give 100 cashback via Quidco. I did ask on the forum how to get the best deal before ordering.

    It's interesting that there are several posts from people thinking about choosing a 99XX after having an iPhone. Naturally this is a forum for Blackberry addicts so all the posts by people who have done this are positive, but it's good to see. I thought long and hard about an iPhone but I really like my 9000 and I wanted a keyboard. Maybe when voice command is perfect I will think about it.

    Im sure I saw on CPW website that they were giving away Playbooks free with some Blackberry's on very reasonable tarrifs.

    If I had noticed that before I got my 9900 I'd have went there to upgrade rather than O2 direct

    Perhaps, but I already bought a Playbook ages ago. Did I mention I'm a Blackberry addict?

    I went to an O2 shop on Sunday and picked up a new 9900, who says they're out of stock?

    Individual stores may have stock, but I ordered online from O2 and they are out of stock. I ordered online for 100 cashback from Quidco which you do not get instore
