    Upgrade Time Decisions Decisions!....

    That time of the year again time for a phone upgrade!!!...

    Now im currently with o2 paying out about 40-45 a month for my phone (Samsung G600), which i get 1000 texts (Un 02) and 600 free minutes (Un 02) which i was quite happy with and tbh the phones done me well over the last year, but the renewal choices ive been offered are in IMO cack .

    Heres the list of possible upgrades -
    Motorola e8?
    Motoral V8
    Nokia 6300
    Nokia 500 C/S
    Nokia E51
    Smasung Solid
    Smasung V800

    A few that have caught my attention from friends ect are -

    Samsung Tocco
    Samsung Soul
    Samsung Omnia
    I phone

    Just wondering on peoples input who have any of these phones, prices, tarrifs, ect and any others that would be recommended.

    To fit it has to have a lot of memory i love my music and occasionaly the odd video it will be used at the gym, walking ect so will get a lot of use so wear is a factor, a good camera will be a bonus as i like to take pictures think it gives eveyrone the general idea.

    Whats your input??

    Pretty poor contract for the money TBH.

    I'd just go to phones4u or similar, you'd get top of range phone + they'd give you a choice of contracts on all the networks.

    For example I pay £45 for unlimited texts, 750mins x network + 500mb of GPRS, Voda have phoned me and said I can keep the same contract for £35 if I renew. But TBH i'm just going to get the PAC code and go back to phones4u again I think.
    I hate phone companies that put there branding on phones, which you normally get when buying direct from Voda or O2. Phones4u gave me an unbranded version for free (should have been £50 extra)

    No worries mate, just need to stand your ground a little when there, as they seem desperate to get a sale so can be a little 'persuasive' lol

    Is there actually much diff between the N95 and the N96? Or is just a case of the previous model in a pretty new dress?
