    Got mine - prefer the looks to the old one, but the shape will take some getting used to. Super Monkey Ball is amazing - but anyone who upgrades their firmware can get it, worth £5.99.

    Can't test the GPS yet either as I haven't been outside with it yet.

    Activation was quick and painless for an upgrade, just swap the sim-cards then plug into i-tunes. Took ages in the O2 shop though, big queues and their system as offline. If you want one today, get there quick but they might have sold out already.

    I bought 80% of the UK's iPhone stock...

    ...then put them all on the bonfire.

    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I kinda fancy one myself, largely due to the App Store, but the handset's just too expensive. Not to mention I'm only about 6 months into my 18-month contract with Orange.

    Took me a couple of moments to realise what the small queue outside the Dundee O2 shop was for. Ironically, there was no queue at the other phone shop 20m down the street where a guy was walking out with his new iPhone.

    I was one of the unlucky ones - ended up being the first person told "sorry we have just sold the last one"! Gutted to hear that especially as the woman infront of me managed to get in the queue about 5 seconds before me!
