The guy I was talking to said a certain batch had dead pixels so they reacalled that batch, obviously this is a support guy taking calls so he may not know the whole story, be blagging it or actually know the score. Ether way im well annoyed because I fine with them delaying sending me the phone if its to stop me getting a naff one but they could have let me know.

If it helps, I just got a call (and an email) from T-Mobile saying they had new stock in today and they'll be sending mine out today, fingers crossed this is the same for you! :P

Ah. That's worried me then!

Hopefully the fact they called too means it's legit this time then! :P

Just received mine from Mobiles.co.uk, DHL "been" trying to deliver my phone since monday.

Paid £20 for the handset on a £40 a month Vodafone contract with 300minutes & Unlimited Net & Txt 12 month contract.
With £55 cashback, though it was a bargain!

I'll sum it up.

Its a nice phone like my mates nexus one, it does have a few issues which i need to read about.
The phone itself is unlocked, unbranded, came with a sim card only on a envelope.
NO vodafone welcome pack, so had to ring them up, sorted my online account.

Not a lot of accessories with the phone, no phone pouch\sleeve.
It came with Headset, USB cable, wall charger, UK adapter, and 4GB MicroSD card and that is it!

Out of interest, how long is the contract term? I had to take the hit on a 24 month contract just to get the phone for £60, although £25 a month got me 600 mins, unlimited texts (using my flexible booster) and unlimited internet!

i took mine out at CPW, 24 month contract on tmobile, £30 a month. but i have taken out the insurance, so for an extra £2 a month you can finish the contract after 15months.

Very interesting, how does that work exactly? And can you take it out with T-Mo themselves or is it a CPW thing only?

Edit: Or am I being too naive here? *glances at the date* :P

It is a 12 month contract, it should cost me £425 total with Cashback!

I've been using it now for a few hours and I like it, was able to figure out some issues, however I still cannot get past the issue that if you are on a call and you need to type a number for tone options, it does not work.

But will read the user guide once I have time!

Two things I've noticed so far with my TMobile Desire:

  • No voice search, and the apk from Paul's Desire-to-N1 Rom doesn't install
  • No way of getting out of Sense. On the hero you could clear the defaults for HTC Sense, and the next time you hit the home button it would ask you which home to use...on the Desire it just restarts Sense...
Anyone have any thoughts?

Try the app 'HomeSwitcher'

Ordered mine with Vodafone yesterday (upgrade to my contract); Free phone, 900mins anytime cross network, unlimited landline calls (fair use = 3000 mins), unlimited texts (fair use = 3000 texts), unlimited internet (fair use = 500mb) and vodafone passport all in for £35/month including VAT.

The catch is it's 24months - enquired about 18 but would have to pay a little for the phone (only £35 though...) and lose the landline calls and 300 mins. I considered this but given that I've had my current contract for 23 months so far (left it rolling after the 18 as no phones I wanted) I figured if there was something I desperately wanted to upgrade to in the future I can buy it sim free, like I did with the Hero.

I also asked if the internet could be 1GB, but was told some spin about it being iPhone only and they roughly equate given the iphones lesser compression in Safari... I pointed out that one of the SIM Only deals suggested for iPhone offers 1GB, and surely there's nothing stopping someone simply popping that SIM into any phone, but they were having none of it! Ah well, I don't go over my limit currently.

Was told it would be with me on Tuesday, although I just got a text message this morning saying it has been delayed, although no indication as to when just yet :-(

go to settings, sound and display. Make sure that you have audible touch tones turned on. If you turn them off, it seems to disable the DTMF tones....dunno why, but i've seen that a few times.

Sorry to hijack the thread, btw. Just thought i'd answer that one straight away.

As for the rest, just waiting on t-mobile's next delivery of stock to get mine...till then it seems i may be 'borrowing one of the three we have at work :-)

Its worth about $600, so i wouldnt hold my breath if i were u :P

Also it wont work on any US 3g networks, so you'll only get GPRS/EDGE.

Buy a Nexus if you're on T-Mobile or the AT&T nexus if you're on AT&T. The Desire is really only for Europe/Asia.
