3's customer service is awful though, remember when my phone broke and was still covered it was a nightmare to get them to give me a new phone, I ended up leaving.

I'm getting an iPhone with Vodafone in the new year, and have a question about internet usage (apologies if it sounds daft, but I've never really used my phone for internet before!). So the pricing plan says 1GB of mobile internet and unlimited Wifi. Am I right in thinking that if I use it to go online at home, and I connect to my BT Home Hub (as I've been doing for the past year with my iPod Touch) I can use as much as I like, but as soon as I use it for the internet away from a Wifi signal, it starts counting towards my 1GB allowance?

In a word YES.

My friend has this phone and I wouldn't recommend it. In paper its pretty good, but he's a had a lot of problems with it. The software is pretty buggy which isn't surprising because it runs Windows Mobile but he's also had a lot of problems with the touch screen and the camera not having worked from day one.

The HTC Android phones are supposed to be really good. It may be worth waiting a few days to see if there are any plans for the Nexus One in the UK.

I'd take their assurances with a pinch of salt. There's no way to hold them to it so it's definitely not a good idea taking out a contract on that basis.

 

Also, as has already been said the HD2 is a bit naff.

My 2 cents.

 

I had the iPhone for over a year and it's a great phone. For me though, I suppose the reason I liked it so much was because it was also an iPod. I never go anywhere with out my iPod and if it wasn't for that being on the iPhone I probably wouldn't have bought one. Obviously that all sounds a but stupid being that the iPhone is heavily marked as being an iPod. I just think that when you strip off the iPod from the phone, it's very limited in what it can do. The camera isn't great, the bluetooth is limited and it can't multi task. In saying that some of the updates Apple have released have done wonders for it and the touchscreen is probably still the best of any phone. I far happier With my Blackberry than I was with the iPhone.

so I could easily get an ipod touch then if I wanted to upgrade my ipod and get a better phone perhaps?

 

As for Blackberrys I could get a Curve 8520, Curve 8900, Bold 9700 all for free I think...My brother has a blackberry and swears by it

That's what I did. I got a Bold 9700 in November, my first Blackberry; and I wouldn't go back. It does everything I need and probably will never use from a phone.

All the reviews seem to intensely dislike it but from what I've used of it, it works fine. BB has maps built in and they work quite well.

Well I would believe them on their coverage improving since the merger is due this year.

But T-Mobile are terrible, so go somewhere else. T-Mobile were shit for me, and even if you've found them good, their actual contracts are awful.
