Knowing 3, they either won’t stock this phone because it is too high end and pricy for them, or release it many months after other networks have done.
I speak from experience when I say this as the MDA Vario III has only been recently released on 3’s network (no more than 2 months) whilst other networks released it around 8 months ago!
The only high end phones 3 seem to supply are the Nokia range (N73/ N95) and now MDA Vario range.
As for which phone is better for texting, I would say the HTC Diamond as the Diamond comes with a slide out keyboard to compose texts, but that is if you actually like using slide out keyboards...
I cant believe how long i hv bin waitin 4 dis phone n 02 keep tellin me everyday call bk 2morro :(
is it even worth the wait?
Tmobile are useless. they need to do 'testing' to see if its ok to release. Jokers! I think 02 is anyones best bet.
Been waiting on this phone for while as i'm now due an upgrade and got told by vodafone two weeks ago it would be released on 5 June. Spoke to Vodafone again today and its been put back to July 4
aaaggggghhhhhh ! ....
Think i'll move to 02 ot t-mob.....
Tmobile - still no date or pricing.
I see 02 have in stock and also carphone. carphone are actually selling on 02 and orange. but for a decent reasonable price plan i would recommend to wait for tmobile as u can not beat their flext price plans. for the innovators out there, i understand why u are purchasing a 18month contact with 02. but trust me, in the long run, u are spending more!
Bought the phone through o2 online on contract this morning - have now been told the phone is out of stock and to call back tomorrow for an update! unbelievable!
Owners of the phone:
from watching videos, the processor seems VERY slow. especially when switching between widgets and menu, or dragging the wallpaper imaging widget..that really annoys me. How do ya think about it?
I got one of these today in Carphone Warehouse - it's in stock in their stores now. The wait is over!
just got this on contract from carphone warehouse, just came in store today excellent phone
Just spoke to vodafone about an upgrade, and they say they will have it on 4th July.
I've just ordered it too. Definitely available and with next day delivery. Been waiting for months and really looking forward to getting it!!
I have just bought the phone on contract with O2 - next day delivery too - £35 per month on a 12mth contract - can't wait to receive it now!!
02 said they should have it today i have just called them and they aint recieved the phone yet :( how long do i have to wait?
I also checked the O2 site and it is free on all tarifs!
This is either a mistake or a massive indication to the pricing of the Tocco!
its so annoying that the networks are not giving an estimate date. I am waiting for it on the Orange network.
The HTC Diamond and Samsung F480 are totally two different types of phone; the most distinguishable thing between the two phones being that the Diamond runs Microsoft OS and Samsung F480 doesn't.
Judging by the ever growing class actions against HTC, their devices leave a lot to be desired...
