Back in stock on the Orange store now. Although still advertising it as GB with no mention of ICS update already available which is just weird and surely must hurt sales. Don't Orange WANT to sell these things?

Still £169.99 online. I suspect your local store couldn't find it's backside using both hands, not unusual for a mobile high street store of any flavour.

Cheers, makes it more tempting again then. I looked in both the stores, the ex-orange and ex-t-mobile one and both had £179.99 this time.

Orange are still doing £30 cashback via Quidco for PAYG handsets over £140. This makes the handset itself effectively £140. Orange actually paid my cashback to Quidco within a fortnight so I got it back in my bank account in about a month (Quidco pay out in the middle and end of every month).

NB: If you are new to Quidco they take £5 commission each year out of your cashback. If this will be the first time you use them then your cashback will effectively be £25.

TopCashBack were £35(I think) but seem to have slipped back to £30.30 although there's no £5 first time fee to pay.

It is still available on a contract, but the PAYG version does seem to have been discontinued. Soon they should have one more, because I am sending one back (Orange messed up the order big time, and it is easier to reorder than trying to fix it...).

Hmm, it's disappeared entirely off PAYG now, still showing up on contract.

Online it looks permanent. Orange does that sometimes, in order to encourage people to go on a contract.

Checking in store is probably the best option. Or look at the second hand market, where it is still available for around the same price.

Just seen these posts. Should be interesting when I go to the shop later today to pick up the one I've ordered for my daughter. (Which I couldn't get through Topcashback - out of stock on there.)

LATER -

...and, guess what, it wasn't in. But they are advertising it at £99 etc, on the displays.

Shop - "yes sir, it actually says FROM the 9th"
Me - "True. But that means it SHOULD be here today. FROM doesn't mean some time after the 9th. So why isn't it here?" (Knowing full well that the assistant won't have a clue.)
Shop - "It should be in tomorrow."
Me - "what makes you say that?"
Shop - Assistant realised he's just spouted bullsh1t. Goes red. "er, they usually are."
Me - "so, if it isn't in tomorrow, are you suggesting I come back every day thereafter to check?"
Shop - "No, I, er..."
Me - "Can I phone the shop?"
Shop - "Sorry, we can't give out our numbers.
Me - "OK. Are you going to cover my petrol and parking costs for every visit that doesn't produce the phone?"
"Shop - "Sorry..."
Me - "Right. Let's see what happens tomorrow, shall we?" Exit, stage left, smiling at customer listening to this. Got a thumbs up back, so felt better about that.

To be continued...

Just phoned Orange to query my online order - wanted to cancel it as I ended up buying a PAYG OSD in an Orange shop. They said no payment was taken from my CC as the handset is discontinued.

Explains the price plummet then. They should have done much better from this phone as it is one hell of a device.
