Default [Q] Not available til JUNE with Orange!!

I just spoke to Orange upgrades, and after being fobbed off all week they were finally able to tell me that the Galaxy S2 won't be available with them til start of June, as they do extra testing on the devices that other companies don't!

I now have a bit of a dilemma as I would rather stay with Orange directly as they should be able to offer me a good contract to stay with them, but I could go to Phones 4 u or even switch to O2 and get the phone now!

Anyone else in this situation, or have any advice?!

You can get it on orange via phones4u - even as an upgrade.

Well that's ridiculous, by "extra testing" they probably mean "figure out how to slow the device to an absolute crawl with bloatware that no one wants"

I was told that too. I ended up cancelling my contract and taking a new one out with Phones4u whose phones are unlocked and free from bloatware.

Got a better deal than Orange could offer me too.

I see, thanks. Is it better to go into the P4U store or order off the website, or are they the same deals?

I second this, it's exactly what I did. The phone is great but what amazes me more is the amount of time my battery lasts on my HTC Hero now it's been left alone in the shadows of my GS2. It's on its 4th day without charge!

hey vinokirk
Yh thats the contract Ive ordered, plus I get a free 8GB micro SD card aswell

Im not sure that this contract has 1GB of data, even though you can have unlimited internet from the booster.

According to T mobiles internet policy, unlimited internet is cap to 500mb.

Bit wary of T Mobile, what is their customer service/network coverage like?
