I hope so. But it's looking like another messy Nexus launch. Getting my SIM free Galaxy Nexus last year was an ordeal with Phones4U. They wouldn't sell it to me without a 30 day Vodafone contract, which I immediately phoned and cancelled under the cooling off period. Such an unnecessary rigmarole.
Would be nice to just buy it from Google (e.g. Play Store) like I did with my Nexus One.
He's a hint and how I did mine.
Called P4U store and asked if they had any instock. Went down to the store and they refused to give it me Sim Free.
Then I explained that I called Customer Services who said I could pick it up Sim Free in store, and when I called the store to check the stock, they said it was in.
They simply turned around and said "Well if Customer Services have said its OK, then you can have one." Walked away with a Sim Free phone
