It's here and it's awesome

So I've gone from the iPhone to...
The HTC Desire.
Let me explain why first. I still love Apple products and I am still in love with my iPad. Of the reasons for swapping to the Desire, having enough of Apple isn't one of them. The main reason I suppose is boredom. I'm the same with cars, and music, and books - I get bored easily. The chance to upgrade with relative ease and limited financial penalty was too good to miss and after discussing with my trusted technical guru (Mr. P Snr) the Desire was the phone for me. After some initial worry with getting contacts across everything now is up and running (there is a minor niggle that my facebook news feed isn't updating but that's minor and sortable I'm sure).
So far - I'm very impressed. Smooth, quick, easily customisable and lovely to use. I will really enjoy getting to grips with it over the next few days.
Oh, and the saga of actually getting it delivered? They still delivered it to the wrong address. I had a card from the courier through my letter box when I got home tonight and after swearing, kicking the wall and cursing all things courier related I read the card... "your item has been left with your neighbour". A woo hoo!! So as I now have my phone I have no reason to phone O2 again and shout at them. I'll do a more in depth review when I've used it some more.

Glad it turned up - but I enjoyed reading the saga, it was very funny. Nothing's simple these days and I won't be surprised if you find some other reason to phone O2 for a rant.
BTW my Nokia 1209 is still going strong and hasn't exploded yet. You can get one for less than £20. You can make phone calls on it and send text messages!

Hope your achilles tendons are on the mend.

Thanks for laughing at my discomfort Sue! (Just kidding - thank you for continue to read my blog).
I was still tempted to phone them actually to say they STILL didn't follow my instructions - but they would only say "You have the phone don't you?" do there's no point.

I know exactly what you mean about still been miffed that they hadn't followed your instructions - even though by sheer fluke it turned out to be okay. I was expecting your delivery on Thursday - if you know what I mean - although the way it's gone it could quite feasibly have turned up here!
Might have to buy a new phone myself one day but I'd have to psyche myself up to cope with the stress!

If I knew I would have gone through all this, I would have just gone straight to Carphone Warehouse and bought the handset from there. It would have been less stressful. Still... I can now enjoy my new phone and I'll be reviewing it properly on here in the next few days
