    What I was told by O2 anyway:

    Mark: Hi I'm Mark. How can I help you?
    Martin: Hi, what date will the blackberry torch be available through o2?
    Mark: Let me check that for you.
    Martin: thanks
    Mark: The Blackberry Torch 9800 is due to be launched on our network on or after 04 October 2010.

    Don't get your hopes up though, Vodafone also said it was due to be released 27th September and now they are saying expected 1st October. It could be quite a while after 4th October for o2, you just never know with RIM.

    "on or after" says it all really... I really was hoping to pick it up on monday, but I doubt it will happen.

    i think it will be the 8th now for other networks

    i think this is due to vodafone having some sort of deal to have the first sale of the torch for a week

    Just spoke to o2 and the chap confirmed that the 4th of October release date had now been removed from their system. He waffled on about some extra software testing being required. Gutted!

    I'm off to the snow mountain with Butters...

    Vodafone are definitely getting it before other carriers. Not sure how much longer.

    You: can you tell me when o2 is planning to release the Torch?
    Megan: That will be released in the next few weeks.
    You: few weeks?! :'(
    Megan: Yes, about 3-4 weeks i'm afraid.

    Moved to orange and not looked back.. Seem to have 3g signal in more places, phone was free, and I've set up UMA! interested to see how their plans pan out because they've just changed from unlimited data to 500mb I think, at least on simplicity

    Same here Weezul,

    I never had any probs with O2, but Orange seems to be better coverage for me at the mo.
    I get double the minutes, and 750mb data
