If only...

gawd, if only those pesky operators wouldn't let places like the Apple store, Carphone Warehouse, Expansys, and who knows how many OTHER places that let you buy a mobile with whatever contract (or lack thereof) you might wish....

Choose o2 choose crap.

The reason o2 do it is so people actually have a reason to use their truly awful network - rubbish 3G, constant network problems (as of the past 6 months anyway), expensive and with horrid customer 'service' department (every time I get off the phone with them I feel like I’ve been serviced alright!) -- But hey! At least you can get a decent phone (and Sean Bean always sounds cool too). I love my Pre but hate o2, unfortunately as I want a Torch to replace my current phone I guess I'm stuck with them for the time being.
