    O2 are shifting their stock of iphones... so if you want one... nows a good time. Shift stock is probably down to the upcoming v3 iPhone and the nano iPhone.

    If you do go to O2, come to O2 Litmus and see if you can get some apps. ;)

    I have used HTC phones for many years, and have loved everyone..

    I guess it would depend on what you want, I certainly wouldn't buy an iPhone until the new one comes out on the 17th.

    The spec of the new one pisses all over the old one..

    The Android Google phone is good, but development work on it is slow, so still no bluetooth file sharing. Of course you wont get that with the iPhone either.

    But you can just get a windows mobile phone with the same spec of the iPhone and get all the applications you can get for the iPhone (just about) for free from many sites like XDA developers.

    There's also a million an one ROM's for WinMo based devices you can have a differnt OS every week if you like.

    Each phone has it's quirks\benefits.

    If you can hang on a bit, perhaps wait for the T3 (gadget mag) phone to come out?

    Well I opted against the N96 and got a Sony Ericson C905 8Gb and I can honestly say........









    ... It's complete ****! The camera is good but the poxy thing will not pair up with my handsfree car kit properly it will pare but goes to silent when i try and make a call and i can't here the person on the other end. The internet will not function properly and when viewing E-Bay you look at an item and view the image and when you look at another item and try and view the image it reloads the first image instead of the one you want. Th epoxy thing never has any signal. I can have 3-4 bars on my old N95 (also T Mobile) and the Sony will say "Emergency calls only". When I called them they said to lock it on GSM!?!? I'm paying for 3G!

    Phoned them today and told them I'm not happy but as 7 days has passed they will only offer a replacement handset the same. I have already said if the replacement handset is the same I shall be expecting a new handset of my choice or I shall cancel the contract under the basis that;
    1) Item doesn't do what their advertising says 3G, internet usage
    2) Item is not fit for the purpose for which it was sold to me for

    Is there any chance I could have some good luck this year?

    Sony Ericsson W995i

    Just released, only on 02 and orange as contract phone.

    Or just pay £400 for a network/SIM free as I have if you prefer Vodafone.

    5800 for me. Really impressed with it. The iPhone is good, but i am bored of all my work colleagues being complete geeks and never shutting uup about the god damn thing, so that really put me off getting it.

    :music:I work for 3 :eyebrows:

    I currently have the nokia E71 handset excellent to use, great features, maybe lacks in the camera department.

    we have just taken delivery of the sony ericsson w995 and also the nokia n97.

    on first looks both seem very good phones although I will say sony ericssons have been having a lot of problems recently with speakers and software issues plauging their range.

    the nokia n97 seems very very good 5mp camera slides to the side qwerty keyboard plenty of memory, does feel a little heavy at first but sure you'd get use to the feel of it which is a quality finish

    I quite like the idea of an N97 when I upgrade in a few months, and would be interested to hear of anyone's experiences when they are released.

    got 2 LG viewtys....never again, both phones cut out whilst on call and very slow on viewing photo albums and PC software is rubbish....I dont think you can beat the iPhone how much of a nerdy geeky phone it is, it does the job and does it well lol...albeit it cannot forward txt messages...but can do pretty much everything else......pure madness!!
