I am due an upgrade but neither the One X or One S which are available generally are on the upgrade list, is this usual with new phones? I have tried to contact O2 but their contact button just times out I think they must have a problem!

Dave - when I post here it's in a personal capacity but the guys at the Social Media Team take care of the Community, Facebook, Twitter e.t.c. - details about the team that handle this here - http://www.o2.co.uk/socialmedia
Perhaps drop one of them a PM? All the 'official' O2 presence staff are Name@O2 on the forums ie Abs@O2 or Paul@O2.

So that's about it. Coming from cyanogenmod where I could customise a lot on the phone I'm actually very happy. It's like my old Desire with loads of space, speed and a giant bloody screen :-)

First impressions are that the phone is gorgeous and stupidly thin (although does seem to run a little hot, but not uncomfortably so). Everything flys and fastboot works as expected. Screen size is perhaps a tad large but that's what the One S is for.
The thing that impresses me the most is camera shutter speed which I would estimate is about .5 seconds - and that's taking proper autofocus shots, not in burst mode. Also like the ability to take photos whilst recording videos.
The new Sense 4 has the right level of 'Sense-ness'. Still nice HTC tweaks like the weather live wallpaper but not so much that it slows Android or restricts too much.
Also, and this is probably irrelevant to most of you, the One series allows persistent on, never off, full brightness screen with no locking or dimming. This makes the phones look more attractive and eye catching on display and makes me very happy.

my local O2 shop was selling HTC One X's (grey one, but did not ask about white) on Friday, both on contract, and Sim Free. In the end I purchased my phone sim free from car phone warehouse. Same price as o2 shop (£479.95) but its debranded from any o2 stuff.
CPW and o2 shop were only ones happy to sell me Sim free on Friday. Phones for U kept trying to sell me a new contract (apparently £36 a month for 2 year, is (according to salesman) cheaper than my 02 simplicty deal of a tenner for a month for 300 mins, and unlimited everything else,including data, and buying phone above, even though 10 seconds proved that was not the case!) but in any case would not sell the phone sim free until this week some time, and for £529!
incidentally, so far very happy with the One X - great phone!!!
