Sony Ericsson X10 (Android)

I can see no reason why the Desire shouldn't be added to the list, especially as they've recently added the X10.
When confronted, the guys at O2 didn't know anything about the other phones having access to Openzone. They have escalated the issue to the department that deals with Openzone and are supposed to be getting back to me.
It wouldn't surprise me if they are already in the process of adding the Desire to the list of Openzone compatible O2 phones, but the relevant departments within O2 aren't communicating.

The data part I got in the email only mentions the cloud and not Openzone. I've not been anywhere near a cloud place yet so can't check whether I'm ok using it

(via my iPhone simplicity sim)
Edit: I've seen they have now changed their simplicity plans the smartphone now has unlimited texts and "wifi"
Unlimited Wi-Fi is available at any of the 7,500 Wi-Fi hotspots from our partners The Cloud and BT Openzone. Excessive usage policy applies.
So really, we should be able to get to openzone now from our desires?

It shouldn't be this difficult - I bet they don't treat their iPhone customers like this!

We should be getting Openzone; they will readily confirm that at their smart phone call centre. I just think the Desire is quite low down on their priority list - at their online shop it is on about page 4 of their smart phones section. All the phones on the first page have Openzone accreditation.
If anyone else wants to pester them, the number from an O2 mobile is 2302 option 2-5-2.

I hope others do to.

I have an HTC Desire and I am pretty sure mine works on BT Openzone. I am nowhere near an OpenZone connection at the moment so I can't test it, but I have checked my phone and it lists an OpenZone connection as remembered.
I am fairly sure one of the first things I did when I got it was check that OpenZone and Cloud worked.
I am not on Simplicity and my handset was an upgrade through O2 not bought elsewhere. Before everyone gets on my case about being wrong, I will check next time I have the opportunity and update here.
