    Had mine for a while, first smart phone so took a bit getting used too.

    Was some snags with it at first which seemed to be resolved with a software update, BUT that has introduced some really annoying problems making it almost un usable at times. Awful delays when swapping between screens and pretty much doing anything!

    I have loads of **** stored on it so plan to back it up, reset it, and see how it goes.

    TBH I still reckon its a good phone, but with some software gremlins.

    For £20 /month, 600 txts, 600mins and unltd internet, and assuming you dont have software issue then its a steal IMO.

    Good luck with it.

    Desire is better than the wildfire in my opinion, bigger and better resolution screen makes it much better for email / surfing...... I have a Desire :)

    The wildfire is the budget version of the Desire.

    I had the wildfire before I went for the Desire HD.
    I really liked it, for its size and what you could do it was great.
    The only down side is the screen.
    Its not has high a res as the hero I had before but its great for watching films or emails on.

    Deffo one of the best budget smartphones to go for.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Vivaz is an awful phone, was so damn slow sent it back within 2 mins of turning it on, cant decide whether to get a samsung galaxy s or not, someone said it was crappy toysrus plastics & not the best, we'll see, just need a decent touch with wifi ap for laptop, loved my tocco, just worked end of, missus has Genio which is great for her, the one who said I dont like touch, cant use it, now she wouldnt be seen dead without it, lmfao.

    Iphone was just a phase to play with JBing & unlocking, absolutely terrible OS imho, so locked down & old hat, but the hardware was very good, touch was 1 of the best, but as with apple all about the dollars, be nice if they were more open with the BT, Tethering etc, shame as has much more potential, Jobs done good, shame he probably wont last the year, real shame.
