    I've just ordered from Vodafone UK: 59 upfront cost, 1200 minutes per month, unlimited texts & 750 Megabytes of data (includes 2GB BT Openzone Wi-Fi access + BlackBerry Internet Service + free 25MB of data a day in selected European countries) 51 per month, 12 month contract. Phone arrives Tuesday.
    That's an amazing deal. My rough calculation, show that going for 24 month contract with almost same plan costs approx 200 more. I'm very tempted to take this plan. It makes good sense.

    Snap same deal albeit no upfront cost, though had to increase my handset insurance by 3 so effective 36 extra

    No upfront cost? Dammit, how did I miss that? How much is your monthly insurance?

    Was just in a shopping mall with all the mobile phone stores and some independents. Only one to have a dummy of the 9900 was the Vodafone store. It wasn't even on display, but in the managers drawer of his desk. And they had no idea when they were getting them or releasing them.

    BUT it was my first hands-on with one.... and it was GORGEOUS!

    Felt great, solid, weighty, no creaks (as opposed to what I feared it to be too light-weight). Keys felt great, but can't judge too well on just a dummy phone, and of course screen was a non-starter. And THIN!!!! Specs on a sheet of paper can't reflect the reality. Of course there are thinner devices, but they are usually petite. To have this thin a device on something sizeable like the old 9000 really makes that feature noticeable.

    Can't wait for Handtec to gimme mine!

    Ordered from Vodafone last night. 12 month 36p/m contract with 199 handset price and 50 cashback with Quidco. Got my PAC code from Tesco Mobile yesterday, so I'm all set.

    just spoke to o2 who isn't sure when they are getting any in stock, possibly end of next week. however has got dummy phones already, and I asked the person on the other end, and he mentioned that when they get dummy versions phones usually come quite quickly after! =)

    Spoke to Phones 4 U who isn't sure at all. No idea couldn't tell me anything. Just said "I think the phone is released next week some come in store 2 weeks time" HOWEVER! They have mentioned that they could price match on another website. Might give them a go too.

    Spoke to CPW who thinks that they may get it by next week. However due to the riots happening here (Bristol) all deliveries has been ceased and they are not expecting any deliveries until riots are over, therefore the person on the other phone says next week should be the earliest. However has given her my number so she can call me up and say the phone is stock. However one downside is that they won't price match anything.

    Just been into my local carphone warehouse again, and asked the guy about it. He said it launches tomorrow but whether that specific store would receive the pre-order of mine tomorrow is another question. He wasn't sure but he said latest wednesday! I will try again tomorrow and see if they have mine delivered!

    Just had an e-mail from VodafoneUK. Phones are being dispatched today, for delivery tomorrow.

    But, I've been told it's more likely to be Monday release for all by an operator, so no idea which one will hold true!

    Yeah I got the dispatch email too. Either they will deliver it tomorrow, or Parcelforce will hold it until whatever day Vodafone have told them to deliver it on.

    no worries just that the americans tmobile is also the 31st (and other uk people got confused )

    i hope its monday (as orange release b4 tmobile or on the same day) as I'm well over due my upgrade, and my 8900 is on its last legs (well i'm giving it a beating with my usage and its so slow at times))
