    If it's a grey product would there be much of a difference in them?

    theres a high probability that the "comes with music" service wont be extended to you if you buy a grey import handset.

    So you might get it $50 cheaper or a month earlier, but its up to you if thats worth a years free music or not

    That's probably going to be the case. For me personally that would have no bearing at all. I'm still *very* interested in this phone.

    Should have bought one outright in the UK, they were under GPB250.

    Any ideas when the carriers will pick them up over here?

    Not too bad, but at that price I'd still pay a little extra to buy locally.

    Yeah, although i thought that the phone would already be on the streets here. Obviously from my searching today, its not.

    Don't worry, a few people are following this closely, so watch the thread and you will know as soon as they hit the carriers.

    Hopefully it will be out soon enough, I love the 5310 but want the 5800...

    Settings for 3

    So I bought one of these off eBay.
    What's the easiest way to enter in all the 3 settings (like SMS/Net etc?)

    Thanks

    What price did you pay just out of interest? Local seller? Brand new? I'd be reluctant to buy from ebay.

    $610 delivered from eBay, came with bonus car charger, charger adaptor, case, screen protector (in addition to standard retail package)

    Store is called Delay No Mall
    Took exactly 7 days for delivery, came from Hong Kong though ad said it could come from Perth.

    Has latest firmware version on it. Phone works great. I'm going to use it until the Pre comes out then eBay it.
