HTC's new Gingerbread-powered Desire S is now available on all five major British networks.
Three (opens in new tab), Orange (opens in new tab) and T-Mobile (opens in new tab) are offering the phone for free on contracts of £35 per month. If you're into shiny, exclusive stuff then you'll be interested to learn that T-Mobile will be exclusively selling the silver version of the device (that's the one in the pic above). If you order a Desire S through any other carrier you'll get the standard black version.
Vodafone (opens in new tab) and O2 (opens in new tab) offer a free Desire S on slightly cheaper contracts of £30 and £27 per month respectively. Meanwhile The Carphone Warehouse (opens in new tab) can hook you up with a free Desire S on-contract with a number of providers for as little as £25 per month.

This is sad.. the UK and europe have gingerbread on their phones... and the u.s is waiting untill june? July to get it.... wth!
Do any of the UK networks match up with AT&T bands?
Nope. All 900/2100
I really like this phone: not too big, solid chassis, slightly bigger battery, nicely accessible SIM and micro-SD cards. It seems to have the right stuff. I will be watching for that review.
Hey could you please confirm the WiFi death grip issue,
have read that when held in landscape, with camera covered, the wifi signal drops, also when placed on the couch ...... If the wifi issue is there, is it bearable?? That would be a deciding factor between desires and inc s for me
