Look's good value, but I'm still waiting for the Defy+ : a few less cut corners; Drunk proof; £240 unlocked.

Do you have a review planned for that?

This phone is locked to orange. There is currently no method of unlocking to another carrier which the SF was able to do and which made it very popular. I guess you could wait for 3 months then pay orange for the code but that doesnt make the phone very cheap anymore

The Orange San Francisco was also locked to Orange but thanks to the community over at Modaco, it was possible to get rid of the Orange bloatware and install different ROMs. It is a similar situation with the Monte Carlo, and there are currently a lot of ROMs available for the Monte Carlo/Blade if you want to have a look. http://android.modaco.com/forum/453-zte-blade-libra-blademodacocom/
