As far as I know, Vodafone is going to be the "flagship". HTC seemed to be bigging them up a lot at the launch event.
Orange and T-Mobile are getting the phone too, but they didn't get a mention.
O2 so far aren't even getting the phone at all!

Depends where you get it from and whether you're first shipment or not.

When I ordered my TP2 from mobilephonesdirect I was first shipment and Voda didn't even have theirs yet - so I got an unbranded one.

I don't know if somewhere down the line Voda got their stock and MPD started selling from Voda stock rather than sim-free stock...

I expect at this stage all stock that doesn't come direct from an operator will be unbranded and sim-free.

I've just sent Orange an email asking about a release date. I'll post back when I hear something.

I never use a 3rd Party. Insurance is 6.00 a month on Orange. They replace the phone the next day usually no questions asked.

If you buy 3rd party you cannot insure your phone direct. You end up paying about 10.00 a month then if you want to claim they try everything to get out of helping you.

In my experience always buy direct. I know the branding is a pain. Custom Roms get rid of the bloatware. A small badge you can put up with.

If you buy a 3rd party phone the main operator will always tell you to contact who you bought your phone from if there's a fault.

That's where you will start having problems.

I phoned Vodafone about my TP2 when I got it asking if I can have insurance put on through Vodafone rather than via the reseller and they said "Yep no problem" and put it on for me! Not had to use it, but just saying...

That's good maybe it's just Orange. I got a phone from Phones 4 you years ago and Orange wouldn't touch me on insurance. I just like to deal direct because I get really good loyalty discounts.
