Hmm O2 UK website now says "delayed - delivery may take up to 2 weeks". I wonder if that's just for new orders or if all orders will be.... I hope not the latter!

just select the phone and then :-
1.) maximise the upfront cost (think £760 is max)
2.) drop the contract period down to the minium 3 months (from36)
3.) finally drop the amount of data each month to the mimium ( it starst off at 10g )

some people say you can cancel the contract straight after it starts so only end up paying 799 but im unsure if thats accepted within the contract or just a lack of checks that allow it.
Im happy to pay the mimium as its only 3 months

Thanks - I worked it out in the end but then decided not to bother with it.
I had the Xperia 5 and did like the phone but the camera let it down. This looks to be improved greatly, but I’m still not sure. Think I will wait for real user impressions before deciding whether to go for it. :)

You don't even have tpay 3 months. You can cancel the contract as soon as you recieve the headphones so in worst case scenarion you will pay £799 for the phone and £18 for contract.

I have a tracking number but it hasn't left yet. Guaranteed delivery by Thursday. I typed Wednesday in an earlier post because that was FedEx estimate but it won't make it by then. Sony Taiwan just changed their website from "coming soon" to "buy" so it must be released in Taiwan. I'm sure this will be the version I get. It is nevermsrp. I'll keep you posted.

Sorry for the slight off topic, but do you intend on unlocking the bootloader/rooting when you get it? I hear mixed opinions as to whether this may result in some camera features being lost due to DRM partition being wiped, though the potential to backup etc.

I'm in O2 UK and hopeful mine will arrive 18th June.

We can discuss elsewhere though, but likely a question on many peoples minds!

I haven't unlocked the bootloader on a Sony device in years. I just don't see the value in it these days but of course that is my opinion. It isn't worth losing functionality or the ability to play DRM content. I very much appreciate the talent and benefits developers bring to the table via custom ROMs and flashed and tested for quite a few years but no longer. The phone comes operating fairly efficiently and I have been with Sony since the X1 in 2008 so I have grown to like the icons, skin etc. It's a shame they have discontinued many of the proprietary apps but based on their market share globally I can understand why.

i went ahead and pulled the trigger. Its the only semi local seller i have found with the purple one. I'm in Austin so it shouldn't take that long to get here from Houston. I have gotten a few phones from nevermsrp and have not been let down yet.

Good news for Sony.
Bad news for me who took too long to decide and now I'll be left with the cheaper headphones. :crying:

I may pull the trigger, I just don't know if I will get on with the phone as my history with Sony is a bit spotty when it comes to their cameras.

No shipment yet. I didn't even see the preorder tag line in the description. I bought every new Xperia flagship for the past several years on Ebay because the US never gets an early release and the carriers here aren't interested in Sony. I'll let you know if/when it ships. Sony Taiwan's link to buy is a dead end and Sony Hong Kong says available June 20. Week or two out.

I believe that carriers USA are prohibited from selling cell phones that are not Korean, here in Spain Carriers sell many xperias and PS4 and it has 8 times less habitants

Are you thinking of rooting? Just curious if you are, too see what features/functionality is lost (especially regarding the camera), if any....
Right now, i am not thinking of rooting at all, i want to at least explore the stock ROM right now, that will take me at least a few weeks.
I will let other try to root and see what features(if any) are lost.

Compared to my S20 Ultra the screen is way better !

    Got it !

    Arrived this afternoon at the T-Mobile shop
    1
    o2 preorder

    Hey how have you done this?
    The deals I am seeing are all pretty rubbish.
    How come the airtime is only for 3 months?

    just select the phone and then :-
    1.) maximise the upfront cost (think £760 is max)
    2.) drop the contract period down to the minium 3 months (from36)
    3.) finally drop the amount of data each month to the mimium ( it starst off at 10g )

    some people say you can cancel the contract straight after it starts so only end up paying 799 but im unsure if thats accepted within the contract or just a lack of checks that allow it.
    Im happy to pay the mimium as its only 3 months
