As Virgin were quicker in sending the micro SIM than I expected, I can say that it works very nicely and is quite remarkable value for fifty quid. My main quibble is that the on/off button is a bit small and - when in a case - isn't as easy to push as the one on the Desire (plus most third party ROMs also used the optical trackball as another 'on' button).
Next time, I'll try to wait until I have another microSD card because it looks like the backup of the one I reused from the Desire doesn't look as if it was complete. Nothing serious has been lost, but it's annoying not to have a complete backup of it all.
