    I got mine today.

    Curious as to how everyones (UK) Torches are in terms of wobble, mines Hungary 3 and it's terrible, a good few mill in both planes. IMHO NOT acceptable for a high end device, I'm calling now for a replacement, the rest of it's great however.

    V6.0.0.246 (Platform 6.4.0.105) is this the most recent?

    I've just got pretty much the same from vodafone, 1200 mins xnet, unlimited texts, 500mb data/bb services but 45ish a month after VAT has been added. It's an 18mo contract though, which I had to specifically ask for, as they were going to sly a 24 month out of the trap straight away. No thanks!!

    It's a cool little gadget, I'm chuffed as a pup with mine

    Always interested to hear from UK members.

    Visited Orange yesterday.... no stock/demo unit, then Car Phone Warehouse.... no stock/demo unit.

    Phones-4-you had stock and a fake unit but wouldnt open a box to try one unless i bought it
    The best offer they could do was 35/month and a free phone.... yet on line its 30/month and free phone...... spoke to manager who would honour the web deal, spoke to P4U head office, still wouldn't let me have 30/month in store...... i walked out.

    Why cant i just get a phone in store for 30/month

    I went to P4U for mine, had a play with the demo unit and then got a sealed one from the back.

    On Orange 45pm, 18m, 1200mins, ultd txt, ultd internet, 50 mms and orange nav.

    Mine is from Mexico 4 and has a very slight movement in the mechanism after 9 days, I am talking 1mm. Is that acceptable, I have noticed some of the US guys have returned there's for bad wobble or a little wobble. Should I return mine, P4U said I have 28 days no quibble exchange.

    This doesn't help the thread but will serve as a comparison - I'm paying 35/month, 1200mins, unltd txt, 500mb internet, 50mms, orange maps for 24 months - no upfront costs.

    Mine is Hungary 3 and there's not much slop in the slider at all, 1mm possibly if I'm really violent with it...

    The demo model I tried in the Vodafone shop was terrible, good couple of mil up and down but the one I got is fine. They did try to fob me off with a used unit (phone was covered in fingerprints, battery was out of its bag etc) but I took that back and got a brand new sealed unit.

    EXACTLY. the same situation here. Mexico 4, less than a mm and not noticeable when you don't look for it. Gonna sit with mine til day 27 and see if the wobble has got progressively worse. If not i'm gonna stick with it, and crack it open and tighten those 6 screws instead

    Was that through the O2 website? I had a look but couldn't see the Torch listed.

    Not sure where mine is from ... I was playing with a whole bunch of these at a RIM event not so long ago and none of them opened as freely as mine.. the y were all very stiff and need a good shove to open. Mine just glides....... in terms of wobble .. nothing i am too worried about... am with weezul, if it gets bad i ;ll crack it and tighten up!!!

    loving the device itself although i was pretty miffed as there was no case in the box... is this normal of have been stiffed by o2???

    Anyway they ket telling me it would be on the website as soon as it was available ... yeah right .. i ordered mine on Tuesday and it still isnt up on the website.

    Give them a call on 202 from an o2 mobile and follow the upgrade route :-)
