    Similarly, if you select an Orange tariff from Phones 4 U it shows as the phone being delivered on 1st September.

    My 9900 came this morning, it has 3G bands 1,6, and 8. So it should work on 3G for both AT&T and T-Mobile. But i still how no idea how to get visual voicemail, any ideas?

    Mines just left Guognchun (sp?) China. So can't be that far away. Visual voicemail would be carrier enabled I think.

    Correction, it only supports T-Mobile bands. Good thing I'm on AT&T huh? My fault, preordered it when their specs weren't listed. I'm going to try and trade with someone on Craigslist and maybe give them a little bit extra xash.

    Guys! convince me why I should get this. I found a deal 460 however I'm quite tempted to stick with android, the sony Xperia mini pro for more than half the price 150 and I'm slightly anxious to be changing OS in case I dislike blackberry after a while. =/ erk

    Edit - forgot to add I played with a dummy phone in store today instead of a live version so I'm not too sure what I think of it to be honest. It's very nice and thin but I'm not sure about eh OS. Argh I need a proper phone to play with.

    Honestly, if you don't like it you can sell it to the likes of me for very little loss.

    Sure it must be easier (and cheaper) to drop by local o2 or Voda stores and blag the manager into selling you one contract free?

    seriously, its all a matter of personal choice, all that i can say is having used almost every bb up to now this 9900 this by far and away the best handset they have ever made. OS 7 is very good software, its just an upgrade rom os6 which maybe you would have seen on a torch or a 9780. there are lots of little nuances in this latest version that are excellent and shows that RIM are now thinking more of the end user.

    Quality of phone itself is amazing. Its as good as an Iphone 4 quality. More Expensive components than normal and well put together. Screen quality is superb even in sunlight.

    Sorry but you could not compare it to a xperia mini pro, if you do get and dont like it you can either return it within 7days if you bought online or sell on ebay where you will get a high price for it of over 400.00

    Mm I know you can't compare the two phones haha. I wasn't hoping a comparison of such but just wondering if anyone here changed from an android to a blackberry (actually may check that thread in GD) and liked the transition.

    Better off by 60 or so getting directly from Vodafone or O2. The only difference being the ones sold by amazon and other retailers is they are unlocked and without carrier branding/splash screen.

    That sucks! 16 hrs in one place is not fun at all. Hopefully, it is a tracking glitch.

    I rang FedEx this morning. I was pretty peeved after a guy here ordered one from the same store - paid less for shipping than me - chose DHL as the courier - and it's shipped a day AFTER mine - his is being delivered today. Mine's prospects at best is tomorrow. So, how can DHL effectively be 2 full days faster than FedEx in what is essentially a 21 hour flight?

    I'd put the tracking details, but it's depressing all the time that my parcel has been sitting and waiting at various airports.

    Anyway, they tell me this morning that the parcel has arrived in Sydney last night (nothing about this on the tracking webpage) and is awaiting Customs clearance. They tell me it's DUE for delivery tomorrow.

    I just get the feeling that it could have been delivered a lot earlier, it's just that they say the 26th and that's the day it will get delivered. Even if they actually stall to get to that day.

    Sigh.

    EDIT: I just looked back. I've bought dozens of things previously overseas and used FedEx pretty much all the time. But it's the UK deliveries that cause me grief. The USA importation process is quick and pretty much flawless. I wonder if it has anything to do with the Free Trade Agreeement we have with the US?

    DHL has better network in Europe at least compared to Fedex. That may be the advantage it got delivered 2 days early.

    I send documents to India regularly from UK, Fedex took whole 5 days and charged 45, DHL took 3 days and 32 another local courier with good network in India took 3 days and 15. So, name is not everything. Fedex would be good in USA, I suppose.

    Hope u get urs very soon.
