    Do you think the sim free version will be unlocked from O2?

    I would say no. Pretty sure about that.

    Carphonewarehouse and Phones4u will be unlocked though.

    Just out of curiosity, how long does it take for the blackberry to drop in price usually with the bold? I'm thinking if I go for the 24 month contract, I will have no money for much else... so may have to wait until it drop in price perhaps... um

    Oh I don't know what to do . Being jobless and trying to look for a job for quite a while now is making me doubt weather or not I can afford this phone.
    Don't worry buddy! good things will happen soon!
    Better to hold on to your money until you have some income going than splash out

    Vodafone NL says: 17th of August, but i doubt it. I think the UK get the phones faster than in The Netherlands, or am i wrong?

    I'm starting to wonder whether CPW will ever release this phone!

    I thought all O2 phones were unlocked? Every one I've had from them has been.

    How do you mean? Cancel with Handtec no probs.
    I would BUT: I paid with paypal. If I cancel it takes about a week to get the money back. They are about the only people that ship to Australia. Their price is great (no VAT). They are about the only ones that take Paypal.

    So, I'll give them another few days.

    Fair enough. I am sticking with them too because they are a good seller and I doubt anywhere else will get it before them (apart from Vodafone).

    ...same here! Got all excited when I saw the post about the 450 deal, until I read the 'smallprint' about their stocks only being Voda etc, and I've gone for the sim-free option!! Handtec still saying Aug 19th so hopefully that won't change again...

    Just spoke to a mate who works for Vodafone, they only have it exclusively for 7 days so Friday seems to be the day of reckoning!
    So seems like this Friday will be the day for everyone to get them then - all Vodafone's fault..

    Still showing as pre-order too so I'd doubt it's in stock.

    True but there is an icon saying "in stock". Theres still something about this site... dunno. Also this alliance member logo which implies they are an Alliance Member which i bet they are not. (Can't find them in the UK List of Alliance Members)

    They sent me this yesterday:

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, we have been given the
    allocation and we will physically have the handsets with us on Friday.

    Just thought I would give you an update as to were we are with these as
    there has been a very slight delay
    But I would still go with a trusted seller.

    I've pre-ordered from them on eBay. If they don't ship it today then I'm eligible for a refund. But more than that, I want the phone....

    Purely Gadgets claim to have one in stock, but I've just spoke to someone on live chat on their website and it will only arrive between between 2-5 working days because of some delivery backlog.

    I love their web site. One of the reasons you should buy from us? Because In Stock means In Stock! Hehe

    Hate it when retailers say somethings in stock when it's clearly not
    I'm just goin to go into either O2 or Carphone Warehouse on Thursday and buy it sim free. To think I was gonna switch to Voda when my contract ended, but making me wait another week for my 9900, they can sod off

    Spoke to Carphone Warehouse again earlier. Their stock is definitely arriving Thursday, so anyone who's pre-ordered will receive the handset on Friday
