Well mine has arrived. Just waiting for the final stages of actrivation but I'm pretty much up and running
I am really pleased for you (albeit amazed that they got it right this time)
Let us know what you think of the phone.
So now it's just @Anonymous who needs to come back to update whether they received theirs ...then we will all be astounded that O2 and UK mail are on the ball

The phone is good. Little larger than the S2 I upgraded from but the extra screen helps for my ageing eyes.
The phone came with a new micro SIM. Rang O2 for activation at 14:11. Old SIM was disconnected promptly and they told me it could take up to 24 hours for the activation to complete but it is usually complete in 30 minutes.
I've been getting texts on the phone for the last 90 minutes or so but no telephony. Calls in and outbound fail with Network Busy. Am I being impatient and this is normal?

It may not have finshed total activation yet. I did a sim swap yesterday. Text were pretty immediate but until all the texts came in and last one saying activation complete I couldn't phone. Turned it off and then back on again and it worked . You may have to give it a bit more time
