unfortunately the date for release has been changed to 28/08/2004
O2 stores said today, end of August/September, and even that is still not confirmed!
I can't wait until the 23rd (hopefully it's the right release date) for this awesome looking phone. I heard it's to be one of the top phones out there.
Some people do, some don't.
O2 have told me lies about the release date several times............ but the 23rd seems to be the strongest rumour at the minute............
I'm trying to get this confirmed though!
does no-one actually read the other messages on this page???? O2 have said its out on the 23rd and all the shops i have asked have all said that they are expecting it to be delivered the week of the 23rd (shops will have a delivery on their weekly delivery day mine is on a thursday). hopefully this will all be true if not the o2 have some REAL explainin to do!!! :)

I am interested in purchasing the O2 X3 phone from you, and in the catalogue
(547/8716) on Page 789, where it says the phone will be available in August.
however after checking my local store and online i have found that the
phone isn't in stock. Has it not been released yet, and if so what date
will they be available for purchase?
Looks like a stunning phone for being so reasonably priced, but could anyone tell me when it is actually due to be released? I had read it was supposed to be August, but still unreleased!
Yeah, phones4u. NOT from O2 direct.
Got this reply from Phones4u

The X3 is to be launched mid September.
Thank you for your enquiry
i contacted Argos and they r expecting it this month , so fingers crossed.
It may be out next week, thats what all the inference is on at the moment - otherwise wait for one of the others you mention
I am really annoyed because I really want this phone, I was wating and waiting and ended up going and buying a NEC e616 on 3, which I hated and now got a refund for, and back to waiting for this phone. I hope it comes out soon because theres more and more phones coming out that I may want.
It's actually a touch smaller than the X2!
Yeah I know its lots smaller - the GX 30 is a brick and a half!!
The X3 is the same sixe as the X2 only not rounded.
its smaller than the GX30
Prob not as I only work there Saturdays (officially left for IT Job 2 yrs ago - but still work Sat to keep hold of my shares) But ill put one of my work mates on the case.
Well sounds like you will get the first info then.
Keep us informed!
just in case any peeps are Tesco staff and want to check the SC system for their store its TPN is 050471621-0001 and the other no is 4718755141737/00.
BTW it looks great in the flesh, shame it has a big arial as this is the only thing that spoils it!!
Tesco's are also set to sell the X3, My local Branch (Southport - NW England has a display model just in)and are having a complete range change on Mobiles in just over a week so they are told it will be in then (but until O2 release it officially they will be waiting) its £199.99 or if your a privelage card holder - like me (Staff) you will get 10% off, I have its Tesco Product no now so will keep running it through the system to see when it appears as orderable(as its not on yet)
Im sure all the Tesco Staff will be clamouring for this phone now at £180 its a bargain for us :)
They missed their chance, the S65 is out soon, the MY X-8 is out soon, the S700 is out soon...........
