    Purchased my HTC Desire 2 nights ago and love it. Its everything i expected from all the reviews and videos I've seen. Bought the phone through Telstra who have exclusive rights to it for the first few months.

    One thing that annoys me about that is that the phone appears to have their branding on it. Totally annoys the hell out of me. Want to remove it but I would most likely have to flash it Sad. Came across http://www.HTCDesireForum.com not sure how good it is, but worth a look.
