So you are looking at 2months from now for the desire.
Odd, the chap at t-mobile I spoke to (0845 412 5000, though I think it's just the 150 equivalent number for landlines) just ordered the code for my new Desire, to arrive via snailmail in 14-28 days. Very pleasant about it too, which hasn't always been my experience with providers and SIM-unlocks.
Edit: ...though, I was already a t-mob customer, so I wonder if they only have a months delay for new customers, so they don't get scammed by folk with fake bank/cc details.
