    Kingofgadgets.co.uk are expecting stock tomorrow. As I live in Warrington and they're based in Altrincham I've just emailed them to see if I can pay and collect

    Some 02 stores seem to be selling it... I went into the Kensington High street store and was told it was only PAYG, that they only had 6 units, and that it would be 2 weeks before you could just buy it on pay and go!

    Was able to purchase from the Notting Hill Gate store no problems though - they also said they weren't allocated very many so I suggest if you're purchasing from 02 you don't wait around!

    Blackberry Protect will restore contacts, messages, calendar entries etc.

    Yes!! Just rang up an O2 shop which is on the way home and they'll sell it without contract Do you think this is because some O2 stores are franchises? I'm sure someone told me that ages ago.......

    That is correct, I think a large % of them are franchises.

    Not sure if that is why they are selling them on PAYG or not.

    They can't get more than 5-10 quid for selling the phone on a contract, so maybe an under the counter bribe might be in order to the sales people of stores that won't sell it on PAYG, that's the only reason I can see for them not wanting to sell it.

    Mmmm could be that the non franchise shops won't sell it PAYG because they obviously want to attract as many people as possible to the newtork with their available stock of 9900s as Vodafone has been doing. A franchise shop would be making a profit on just selling the phone....... just a thought.

    latest from Handtec...
    had an email from them this afternoon - it says they are still expecting stock tomorrow, they will be updating the webpage and they recommend keeping a watch on that. The site has changed slightly, from the 'delayed until 19th Aug' update to now saying 'expected 19th Aug'. Just thought I'd mention it

    Mine is a contract phone and yes, it seems to be locked. An O2 splash screen briefly appears while the phone is booting up. It doesn't bother me though.

    Nope, no O2 branding on the phone - the one I received anyway - only the O2 splash screen.

    Yeah, they've been tweeting. If they get it early tomorrow then we might see a Saturday delivery.
