Orange i phone

#1
My mobile contract expires in 2 weeks. I contacted Orange and mentioned the 2 most powerful words in mobile technology, i phone. Orange dont do i phones , so they offered me a new deal , a free blackberry curve, 600 minutes, free e mail and 500Mb WAP and 600 txt , for £ 19 a month, previously i paid £25 for 100 free minutes. Happy days am lovin the credit crunch .

I hope you read the small print. It might be £19 for the first 18 months, but you could be tied in and it could double after that. 500 MB isn't all that much data-wise anyway.

Do you often spend 10 hours on the phone a month?

Hi BZ it is an 18 month contract then re negotiable, its 20 minutes a day so yes its a good deal for me . I am not showing off , but pointing out what you can get by haggling with your supplier. As for the 500 Mb am still not sure how much that is or will last but it sounds a lot !

there are better phones and media players out there. as ever with apple products, it's a triumph of hype over substance, and proof if ever it were needed that a fool and their money are soon parted.

They are indeed remarkably average even in their latest incarnation.

Apple have just done their usual trick of "make it pretty, and give the fools who buy it enough stupid little add ons to take their mind off the f ucking rubbish we've punted them, whilst making all eleventy billion of them feel exclusive"

No one in the telecoms industry is getting that much of a hard on about 02 losing exclusivity, its just another phone and therefore in their eyes a disposable bit of tat they dont want you to get too attached to, otherwise you wont want the next shiny bit of disposable tat marketed as "the next best shiniest thing you HAVE to have" because the day that happens, they are all f ucked.

While O2 are loosing "exclusivity " over the current 3G i-phone, they will have exclusivity (for at least one year) for the new i-phone coming out in a few months.

Personally I think they are seriously cráp. If I want to watch TV or browse the internet for ages I use my tv or computer. Blackberry's are much better for sending emails and sms, and a damn sight more secure.

Do you spend £19 a month on calls?

Get your self on fleabay if you must look like a chave, type, Dual sim phones in search, iPhone clones for £50.

Mates got one, it looks chavvy does the job and and you can choose your provider, he took his in to a phone shop to see if he could get a new stylus and they couldn't tell the difference, mind you most of the twats in phone shops struggle to tell the difference between a Big Mac and KFC party bucket.

My N95 8GB is up for renewal later this year, thinking about:

I-phone 3GS
Nokia N97
Blackberry 9500 Storm

Anything else should be on the list? Mobile internet and email is the main need, plus use as a laptop modem for the same. Phone calls and SMS not important.

LG Viewty Smart GC900 is free on Orange contracts over £35 a month or Level 4 user. I've just got one and its a good phone even if not the easiest to use. Has an excellent 8mp camera too.

Omnia HD might be the way forwards. I have the current Omnia and it is a good phone, but runs on WM6, which is sh1te. Omnia HD runs on Symbian, which is better by far....
