Finally some good news. Just spoke to O2 and the guy i spoke to said the handset wasn't due to be released until later today (complete rubbish), so I had to tell him that it released by o2 last night. He then checked another screen and confirmed its availability. Handset has been ordered at no extra cost on a 12 month upgrade!!!
Not bad eh

The network sales assistants don’t know what they are doing or saying, that’s why people are being told different things.
02 don’t even have their phone on their website yet, yet some have stated they have purchased the phone on 02’s network.
Organge have put the F480 on their website however.

I don’t for a second doubt that you’ve ordered the phone on T Mobile's network. What I’m saying is that network sales advisors are spewing inaccurate information- right left and centre. It seems they’re making up the availability of phones as they go along. Lol.
I actually went to Carphone warehouse yesterday and had a quick play with the phone. What can I say? Its beautiful!
just called O2 asking if they have the TOCCO in stock, and the man told me they dont stock it. so i called again and someone told me they dont have till beginning of June.
why are some people getting told its not in stock, and some are getting theirs
Well to all those who want it on orange, it is currently on the website.
Don't know how long it will stay though, no one really seems to know what they are doing!!
To Christina, it depends what time you ordered as to whether you recieved an e-mail or not, o2 are usually there till about 8. i recieved an e-mail to say it was dispatched next day delivery this morning, however be aware that o2's carrier DHL dont work Saturdays - so i should recieve mine on Monday. and to Newbie, i can't remember such a bizarre launch, o2 need to get their facts right. As far as i was aware the F480 came onto the order system the evening of the 29th, and i got it on a free upgrade, 12mth £35 deal. (which btw doesnt match the online shop price - handset should be £49.99)It seems they are letting some ppl upgrade, and some not. Seems an o2 training issue to me - just keep trying!

Whats the changes to Flext? I was told that allowance would be changing from £190 to £200 on flext 35. Is that the only change?
trust me, tmobile do have these phones. mine will be arriving today. Carphone warehouse are stocking it on 02 and orange..
I stuck with flex as its the best value for money plan. £30 - £180 allowance.. free weekend calls.
NRW - what number did you call for your upgrade? I don't mind paying £30 to stay on my existing contract but they didn't let me get that far on the phone.
ScottE, 29 May 2008the TOCCO is already available on orange at your local Carphone Warehouse and ladies and gents... morei was talking about the Orange network on its own, not through another company.
Nik C, 28 May 2008Tmobile - still no date or pricing.
I see 02 have in stock and also carphone. carphone are a... moreNIK C
keep your eye on those FLEXT deals....some big changes...compare to COMBI...5er cheaper than orange for same if not more....
I ordered mine this morning from O2 on an upgrade. Paid £30 for it keeping my existing tariff of £25 per month.
Following on from Sids81, i tried calling O2 today and was told that the phone is avaiable to order, but not for a handset upgrade yet. If i wanted to order it, they would have to charge me full price....how stupid is that.
I now have to phone back (sound familiar???) after lunch to see if their system has been updated.
Hope those that have received their phones are happy with it.
According to a Carphone Warehouse advisor who phoned me today, the F480 will not be released on T Mobile any time soon- I was actually told ‘at least 3 months’. But then again, he was eagerly trying to push me into taking up the phone on 02’s network as it is available.
Its interesting how you already have it ordered- it looks like sales assistants on many networks are spewing erroneous information
Woooooooohooooo i finally got the f480 :) just ordered it from o2 now i hope its next day delivery any one no if it is?
and im not sure what colour it will be hopee its black!
To all trying to contact o2 - Finally got through to them at about 19:30pm to try to upgrade to the Tocco - and at last it was on the system! recieved confirmation via e-mail it had been sent for dispatch too, which is a bonus. Shame it wasnt on before 4pm for next day delivery!
Nik C, 29 May 2008yes tmobile have them.. ordered mine finally... arriving 2mora! i hope i like it.. considering... morespoke to 3 different sales reps at t-mobile customer services who all say they havent got these to send out and dont have a release date yet. ...
im confused ...
