suckeggs, 12 Nov 2008wbm68... i am upgrading with Vodafone mate and it's not costing me a penny but i am on a £40 t... morejust spoke to the manager in the local Vodafone shop and they are fully expecing to release it on Friday morning (the 14th), in fact people are 'booked' to pick up their phones at 9am.
She did look a bit confused when I pointed out they'll be arriving sometime tomorrow, so I'm expecting it in the store on sat 18th.
I was also told £40 on a 18 month contract is the expected tariff, which is good enough for me!!
Still no news on incoming stock any time before the 21st. I believe that Vodafone aren't happy with the firmware as it is, and will push back the release until they are fully satisfied that it is right. That's probably for the best though...

However if you try to get it through the upgrade department they will charge you for the handset... if you then tell them that it would be cheaper to go to O2 and get an iphone they put you through to the promotions department who bend over backwards to keep you with them
Too many people are commenting on the lack of Wifi as if it determines the quality of the phone.
The HSDPA runs at 7.2mps... fast enough for anyone... faster than most home broadband connections.
I have just got off the phone from Vodafone and have been informed that Blackberry have actually put together the package for this phone rather than Vodafone and that they have included free unlimited usage for internet and e-mail... which sort of makes wifi redundant.
I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find it. Will the vodaphone version (unlocked obviously) be compatible with AT&T's 3G network in the US?
dropdead 55, 12 Nov 2008this phone sucks!!!! blueberry is just ripping its customers off !!!! come up w/ something bet... moreWell since you put it so eloquently and backed it up with undisputable evidence..... NO!
this phone sucks!!!! blueberry is just ripping its customers off !!!! come up w/ something better !!!
One Smart phone you will love to have, Its virtually the I phone killer no doubt :)
iLUVZtehIPOWNZ, 11 Nov 2008Vodafone, for the 4th time, changed the delivery date. Changing the delivery date 4 times?! ... morewell as far ass i was aware its beeen changed ony the once from the 7th of this month to the 14th, more the fool mfor you cancelling urs
welll ive played with a storm and there nothing out better at the mo! and at the end of the day wats the point of voda advertising there internet service then puttin wifi on it as that would defeat the object!!!
well wifi is important if your going to have fring on it and want to make voip calls which i dont think that blackberry supports,
as well as other fun applications which are extremely fun on the iphone. wi fi will cancel slow download time. and i am not sure of ow fast is the 3g of verizon is but i do know that ATT which i use now is the worst i have ever had. 3g network from AT & T is always down and always acting up cutting connection off and making it hard to use your 3rd party applications.
so we will wait and see how good the blackberry is, hopefully it will be unlocked. :)
Vodafone, for the 4th time, changed the delivery date. Changing the delivery date 4 times?!
No thanks. That totally killed all the excitement. So much that I cancelled my order.
first of all its good but there are two things is missing wifi also high RAM speed i thought that its maybe over or better than HTC Touch HD with 288 ram
Vodafone UK website says pre orders are being posted out on the 14th Nov, but as I'm looking for an upgrade I'm dreading the amount of money they'll want from me!!
There's no delivery of stock confirmed at Vodafone for the 14th... So sit tight, folks!
It seems that RIM is strating to make the same mistakes Palm did (and that why they will also disappear). Eliminating a useful feature as WiFi just because the pressure of the Network, will eliminate the buyers for the units. Remember that the network will still be there
"Guys look at it this way, a lot of people write comments just because they have the importunity to say something negative out loud!
get the phone base of the fact that 1. you like it
2. you have experience with reliable bb's before, 3. gosh can the device be anymore solid than it is get over wi-fi you all sound so dumb! omg what am i gonna do with a phone without wifi stupid -bit@@es
