I'm thinking about buying an iphone 3gs and selling my Samsung Omina i8910 HD - i've still got 18 months on the contract! I enquired about buying the handset from Orange directly, but they said it's not going to happen :(
at the moment, i've got 500mb internet usage each month which is plenty for daily use. The guy i spoke to said that switching to an iphone would be a bad idea because of "background updates" which would mean i would go over the 500mb after doing hardly any surfing on the net.
though, i don't believe him because he also said i would probably lose my unlimited use of texts if i swapped my simcard from current phone to the iphone - after a couple of questions, he admitted that calls and texts wouldn't be affected, but internet usage would.
can anyone shed any light on the same situation where they've bought an iphone handset and just put the simcard in?
fyi - it looks like i'll get about £200 for my phone, and will be paying around £400 for the 3gs handset - if you know of any better deals on new handsets, please let me know!
