New Mobile Phone

  Admiral Allstar 17:50 04 Sep 2007


Not sure if this is the right place, or even if its acceptable in the forum at all, but here goes.

I would like to buy my wife a new mobile phone aswell as downgrade her to pay as you go.

The only requisites are that the phone must have a brilliant camera and she wishes to keep her existing number. All thoughts welcome.

In a Forum such as this you are probably going to get more suggestions that you can cope with.

Wouldn't it be simpler to wander along to your local Orange or O2 or whatever shop and browse there?

a particular network in mind?

Not fussed on which network, just as long as it has good coverage.

I'm currently trying to decide whether to get a Samsung E900 (2Mp camera) -£89.99, or Samsung D900I (3Mp) -£149.99- just reduced from £199.99 on Virgin PAYG. Both have video, MP3 and Bluetooth. Check their website.

Admiral Allstar.

When you have chosen the New phone ask the salesperson to swap the SIM cards over. Your wife will have her old phone number as well as all her other data. I know it can be done because I did it.

Consider the SonyEricsson K800i on 02 look into it.

Im on PAYG with o2.
If i top up £15 a month i get 100 Anytime Minutes & 1MB of Internet downloads.
For £30 i get 150 minutes.

I'm not a great mobile user but o2 provide a good service & i'm able always to get a signal where ever i am.

The Nokia N95 is a good phone. 5 Megapixel camera, Sat-Nav, 3G etc. Quite expensive though and i'm not sure weather it's on PAYG yet.
