Just got my HTC Touch HD back ( the first one I had came with a green screen kinda reminded me of my first computer lol) have to say its the best phone ive used, responsive and browser is great for the internet and at last a usable MSN on a phone. Touch screen is accurate and bright and comes complete with USB cable, carry sock (i guess thats what i would call it!) and spare stylus in the box.

Sorry if this is a bit off subject but if you go into an 02 store and get the iphone on contract do you have to activate it in store? or can you take it home and "activate" it.
Thanks in advance

I activated mine at home - from a carphone warehouse

Really??? Was this recently? did they try and make you do it in the store? and did you have to give them any credit card details?

I went to the apple store in Milton Keynes when the iphone 3g first came out and they activated it in store.

Did you guys buy it on contract or PAYG?

The iphone contracts are different from the normal o2 ones - you're not gonna be able to chop and change.
But they might upgrade you to one if you sign on for a new 18 months..?

Was that a contract one? I wana jailbreak it so i can use my current o2 sim but don't wana get dragged into another contract.

In that case you'll have to pay full whack for it then

Did this at the apple store and I had the option for new contract or transferring an existing number to a blank sim card if you have the PAC ( corrected by powdarrmonkey ) code or w/e code it is to transfer so you can transfer your number and still keep your number etc and transferring contacts etc is easy.

It's called a Port Authorisation Code (PAC) and is issued by your outgoing provider and consumed by your new provider.

No because if you activate it at home then you can jailbreak it before and not get tied into the contract, thats what i did with the original but i was just wondering if they allow you to take them home now or force you to activate them instore like they did when the 3G phone first came out.
