    Another Q for people who know their phones and networks

    Jo wants to change her phone, she uses it predominantly at the moment for texts and the occasional short call on Orange PAYG, equating to about £8 a month.

    She wants a camera phone, would like to to retain her phone number and likes Nokias - and not Motorolas or Siemens.

    so....

    a) Is it possible to retain her current PAYG number on to a new sim card (as her current sim doesnt allow for half the functions to work eg WAP)

    b) what would you recommend

    c) where from.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    u can transfer ur number onto a new sim but I'm pretty sure the shops only let u do that if ur buyin a contract fone. I've not heard of SIMs restricting stuff (wap etc). it maybe worth sacrificing the number to get her a decent sim-free/unlocked camera fone off of ebay (new but from a cheap reseller) then stick in ur simcard if it doesnt allow services then get another sim, surely it aint that much hassle changin numbers?

    the answer is yes and i would suggest going to see the peeps at orange unless she wants a change of operator and in that case she just needs to get a transfer code for the old number and then she can take the number with her (i have done this already)

    In addition - I was looking at the Nokia 7600 - does this have a standard headphone socket jack to listen to MP3's?
