My phone is so old I'm not even sure it's colour. Thinking of upgrading to something funky so I thought I'd bump this thread.
Nokia N97 looks good at first viewing: any views...?
How much you looking to spend fella?
I just got the Blackberry Bold 9000 (not the newest one, which is JUST released the 9700) and I love it. Wifi to connect to your internet so you don't use the mobile internet (even though I'm an 'unlimited' data plan, T-mobile's fair useage condition is 1GB per month , so is 3 mobile, Orange is 500MB! and Vodafone is 3GB but they were the most expensive), 3G for FAST internet when out and about, push e-mail for all your e-mail accounts, qwerty keyboard that is easy to use, superb screen and useability, etc... it's fantastic as far as I'm concerned.
The best deal I found was T-mobile through a cashback site (buymobilephones.net) that included unlimited internet for £25 per month (after you include the cashback). It also has 700 mins and unlimited text, but I didn't really care about that. I would have been happier with 100 and 100 if they offered it for a cheaper price with the unlimited internet, but they didn't.
Anyway, I like it
Ummm.... I'm just about to start a thread on MSE, which I hope will be fairly structured. I thought I'd do a first post which lists all the phones with comments in the following structure
For each phone, in alpha order, something like this
PHONE: Nokia 5800 (Xpress Music)
CARRIER: (EG Voda)
SITES WHICH WORK WELL: BD, BF, WH, ....
SITES WHICH DON'T WORK:
Is it OK if I include some of the comments from here? I'll obviously include future models as they are 'reviewed' in the thread. Is this useful? Happy to post the URL when I set it up tonight....
PS Long(ish) time lurker here, you will now realise I am JM on 'the other' site.....
Just a thought, instead of an shelling out for an iphone, what about the Touch. Basically an iphone without the phone. Ok you need to be in a wireless area to use t'internet but dont most coffee shops have free wi-fi these days, just go stand outside one or maccy d's. I have used that when my phones battery has been a little low. £149 for the 8gb version.
Something else I might look into is this mi-fi business, portable wi-fi connection. I think you can get one for £12 a month with 1gb of downloads or £15 for 5gb. Used with a touch this would be grand for those train journeys, and matched betting anywhere you are. No need to shell out £40+ a month for a contract when £15 would do.
I actually have a netbook which will get a version of the net almost anywhere, but it's so slow unless the connection is good that I think a mobile is an essential add on. One of my questions is whether I should hedge my bets and get a non-voda mobile. Voda does seem to have the best coverage, but having a mob and netty on the same system is rather putting all my eggs in one ISP......
I am in the market for something too a mobile to back/lay bets on the run would be useful in the long term.
However im mostly in the market for a mobile broadband dongle right now. Something i can shove in my ageing laptop ideally £5-15 per month and 2+gb download usage a month would be perfect if anyone has any ideas. Also need to be wary some bookies dont like mobile broadband ip addresses.
Have a look a 3's mi-fi, basically it is a dongle but sits in your pocket. You can connect upto 5 devices at a time to it.

Didn't work with recent betinternet offer, but I don't think many did.
Works well with m.flashscores.co.uk for checking footie scores. Up the Villa!
I imagine the newer model of this, the 6600 slide will work the same as above.
Been looking at a lot of phone reviews this week. I think the N97 is still shading it for me (or possibly the mini version). The Motorola Droid looks funky but isn't available in the UK.
Still looking tho'
