    HTC Hero in Pink from the Carphone Warehouse 

    With thanks to Pocket-lint‘s Amy-Mae Elliott for the news, it seems the HTC Hero will be available via the Carphone Warehouse very soon!

    I might well pop in to one of their branches in the next few weeks to see how it compares to the graphite version that will be launched exclusively and directly by Orange UK.

    It seems the unofficial ‘7th July 2009’ release date wasn’t quite true… it’s still showing as Coming soon… on their website. Very disappointing.

    Carphone Warehouse… what’s the catch for today? 

    If you’re looking for an HTC Diamond 2 through Orange, one of the third party sites recommended is Carphone Warehouse by Orange Customer Service.

    Having perused the deals today, the current ‘Best Deal’ advertised is a £40, 18 month Racoon deal with the following inclusive:

    • Free Phone
    • 900 minutes Anytime Any network
    • Unlimited Anytime Landline minutes
    • 500 Anytime Any network texts

    Sounds pretty ideal for someone willing to fork out £40 a month. Unfortunately I’m on a mission to reduce my standard bill from the current £30 to £25, whilst still retaining the same minutes.

    Lack of new HTC models through Orange Shop direct 

    So I rang up Orange UK today via the usual 150 customer service hotline, all geared up and ready to ask them: what contract can thou offer me if I so desireth the HTC Diamond 2?

    A lovely Scottish lady by the name of Fiona took the call and she advised me that unfortunately Orange were not able to offer this phone directly. “Ooh,” I said, but “some of those 3rd party people seem to be able to offer the phone with Orange?”

    She very patiently explained that whilst Orange would still be the service provider, the 3rd party companies could provide the ‘equipment’ and Orange would still treat the customers the same.

    Fiona added that ‘the only HTC phones we have at the moment is the HTC Touch 3G and the HTC Diamond Original‘; I mentioned that the Touch HD seemed to have been discontinued, and she replied that the Upgrade Team had no idea why either.

    Apparently their online training manual – which is updated weekly – also has no mention of any new HTC phones coming up either.

    So the only way to get the HTC Diamond 2 with an Orange UK contract at the moment is via a 3rd party site like Carphone Warehouse, which Fiona recommended I should look at.
