    I had the Nokia 5230 and i bricked that piece of crap and now i have the blackberry torch which is one of the most high end phone i have ever had in history lol.
    2nd highest on the line is my old LG viewty lol.
    In my state of mind HTC was 1st phone manufacture to use android right??
    And the whole ipad2,i rather have the iphone instead,smaller has similar features to ipad2 and its portable and not many people will try steal it off you. Why because its safely tucked in your pocket and ipad well i like carrying a big bag for it lol.

    Thanks for the reply, have to say i agree with what you said. Just have to wait for the new nokias with windows mobile on them since they are moving to windows mobile (symbian os was shit anyway good riddance man!). Nokia used to be a good brand years ago but the smartphones they have are shitty.

    @keiren:having used one i can tell you there's a severe lack of apps for W7 at the moment

    someone i know has a htc hd7, i tried to get them to buy a desire s but they said the desire was meant for 'fun' and not 'work', they then went and bought a phone designed for movies and games with full Dolby and xbox live support.

    I used to have a N95 before, so same boat there, it would take ages to do anything. hopefully nokia take a look at android soon too, i might go back to them

    Regarding phones and contract deals

    I run an HTC Desire on a network who piggyback of o2.
    For £10 per month I get:
    250 UK minutes:rockout:
    Unlimited UK texts:rockout:
    Unlimited Internet:rockout:
    Please note this is not a contract.
    See:http://giffgaff.com/orders/affiliate/broom2455
    https://giffgaff.com/buy

    There service is excellent, no fuss, no aggro whatsoever.:toast:

    They are totally online.
    Even porting phone number is no problem and was done within 24 hours

    their tariffs are too good to be true lol 8p/min to call any network or landline?? pfft

    its usually 20-25p to other networks and 10p to any landline. this is too good to be true (applying for a free sim now)

    My brother used to use giff gaff for the unlimited internet (10/month). I think there is a FUP though. The sim worked fine, no problems. I say if you like the prices go for it.

    In fact I've just ordered a sim and will use it once I spent my last £10 on orange payg (topped up yesterday :banghead: lol)

    If you aren't sure about giff gaff check out the forums. If you get your sim from there I think you get a free £5 credit too.

    i have a 'fair use' on my t-mobile contract but i got it back in 2010 when the fair use was still 1gb so i have no problems with my phone, although if i did reach the top of 1gb i don't see what they'd actually do about it.
