    Mobile Phone uprgrade time....?

    Help!!

    Really don't know which phone to get, any advice or reviews would be great?

    Its between

    Apple Iphone
    Samsung Omnia
    Samsung Tocco Ultra
    LG Arena

    Not looking for anything in particular in my phone just something really good. Any help would be great?
    Also does anyone work for 02?

    My new network will be either o2 or orange, so any feedback on these too would be greatly apprciated.

    iPhone review time!

    had my iPhone since end of February, and am now on my 2nd handset!

    first handset, almost 2 weeks ago now, decided it was going to start to fail all calls, both incoming and outgoing. i couldn't make or receive any calls!

    went to o2, got a new sim card, no luck. had 1 of 2 options, either o2 send it away for 2 weeks, or go to genius bar at an apple shop. booked into genius bar at lakeside for saturday just gone, turned up, proved phone was faulty, found out there had been 140 dropped calls in a week. the next breath the technician took was to say they would replace the handset - result.

    overall, the phone is good! applications make the phone even better. the vast array i have make it more than just a phone with internet. some apps are v.useful, e.g. the spirit level app, or the london underground one (shows departure boards from station platforms, v-useful if you are at the wrong end of the platform to the screen that you can't read!)

    battery life is not brilliant, mine lasts 2 days tops if i am lucky.

    a mate of mine also has an iPhone, and has done since they came out. he is now on his 4th handset!

    don't let these issues affect your decision! just think carefully, if you go for it, expect to be visiting a genius bar at some point though!

    the only thing that puts me off the iphone is the 100 price tag or a 24 month contract

    got one myself. i was in a similar situation as ash_jr, but after playing with every phone in the list (and more) the Touch HD won hands down.

    battery life is 3days and that gets abused quite a bit with calls, texts, net, emails (set up to download every 10 mins).
    screen is the biggest around
    size is same as iPhone
    scrolling is very responsive
    applications are getting better and better
    net and youtube at HSDPA 7.2mbps
    small price tag on some contracts, free on others
    contract i've got is 30 per month, unlimited texts, unlimited web, 600mins any network

    you can't go wrong

    I had the Omnia and sold it, far to much hassle to use.
