Well, after weeks of jumping back and forth between the HTC hero, Nokia N97 and HTC Touch Pro 2 I have finally decided to go for the Hero.
N97 looked nice but the software is just so dated and awful. Touch Pro 2 was to big n chunky, which is a shame because the keyboard was nice.
I went instore to orange to try and arrange an upgrade but they wanted £97.50 for the phone and the tarriff was £35 for 600 txts unlimited txts, plus a further £5 for 500mb of web usage, and that was on a 24 month contract. no way i'm doing that. Phoning customer services only resulted in a saving of £2 a month.
Can anyone recommend a good deal on this handset, ideally on a 12 month contract, or maybe 18 months? I only need about 200 xnet minutes, unlimited txts (1,000+) and 500mb web usage.
dont mind paying something towards the handset.
