My contract is ending soon and i am looking to get a new contract. At the moment i have a samsung diva and i hate the touch sreen as it always freezes so ii am looking for a decent phone with a qwerty keyboard. I am looking to spend £25 a month and am looking for about 500 mins plus unlimited texts and internet but i want the best possible phone.
Thanks

Do you know any good deals for that phone?

According to this site:
http://www.moneysupermarket.com/mobile-phones/brands/htc/desire-z/
The best deal is here:
http://www.buymobilephones.net/mobile-phones/HTC/HTC-Desire-Z-Free-Line-Rental-Discount/Orange/Orange-Dolphin-30-%2824mths%29-inc.-Internet/8295897?adnetwork=af

Then, there are other phones with QWERTY keyboards such as:
Nokia E7 (this one is quite expensive as it only showed up in the markets and probably you won't be able to find a better deal than paying £30/m)
HTC 7 Pro (you can find this one for a lil bit cheaper than E7, but I wouldn't really recommend that)

Anyways, there are lots of blackberry's with qwerty keyboards, but they don't slide and I, myself, don't really like blackberries. Tough, you might want to look into this one:
http://www.moneysupermarket.com/mobile-phones/brands/blackberry/slider-9800/
You can find somewhat under £25 with your preferences, but I don't know if you would like that kind of sliding qwerty. (that's what I hate about blackberry)

Well anyways, I wish you best of luck finding your phone, if you need any help - just ask, I'll try finding the best deal suited for you. ;)

Given that you want 500 minutes, unlimited texts and some internet - best prices I can find is somehwat £30 a month (for a white blackberry torch 9800). If taking the same blackberry, but red, you can find somewhat £25/month and the black version of blackberry can even get you somewhere near £20/month with all the cashbacks.

Strange though, didn't think that the colour could mean so much to the prices..

Thats what you would think!!
aw well looks like im gettin a black blackberry torch thn buying a white cover lol
if i got this deal would i also get quidco? and if yes how much? thanks :)

Well, the best deal would be here:
http://www.mobiles.co.uk/orange-blackberry-torch-9800.html
The second Orange deal with 500 min, unlimited text and 500mb data (unlimited internet data doesn't really exist, except, probably for Three, but their prices are much higher)
Anyways, quidco says that you can get £50 cashback if signing a contract with them, also + 4 free months line rental (minus £100) sums up to £450 overall deal. Mobiles.co.uk aren't that bad with their cashback redemptions if you do EVERYTHING right and READ EVERYTHING when signing a contract.
The monthly cost will be £25, but you get cashback redemptions, which in the end leaves you with £20.8 per month + quidco of course.

Any more questions, please ask :)

PS. If using quidco to buy the phone, you should use a different browser or delete all the cookies from your browser and then start using quidco, otherwise you might fail to get quidco cashback.

EDIT: also if you want to check on the phone, its specifications and reviews:

Well I wouldn't rule out the latest touch screen phones based on you current Diva. I would go to a phone shop and have a play and things like the Desire S and the Sammy S2. Have a look at the SE Arc too as the networks are pushing some good deals on these at the moment and IMO has the best visual screen of any smartphone.

Well, it's not something that shiny or something and it does involve cashback which most people hate, if you really think it's special you can post it, I'm not really in a position to judge as I've only been tracking the whole mobile deals section for a week. At the moment I can only find the best deal possible at this particular moment. For insurance, well, I think it's possible to get one with your bank, at least Lloyds said something about having a Silver account and at the same time you get phone insurance from all kinds of accidents, anyways, I'll check this now.

You can get somewhat like this from Lloyds with Silver Account:

That's the Terms and Conditions:

Not sure if it's worth it as it cots £8 per month, but you also get some more stuff.
