Been offered a choice of 5 phones on my new contract.

Nokia 6220
Nokia 6500 Slide
Samsung Tocco
Sony Ericsson W595
HTC Diamond

Which one is the best out of them?

Also for music and camera?

Cheers

I returned my n96 - vodafone firmware was terrible at the time of release. Apart from storage and a slighly larger screen, it was no better than my n95.

Since ordered the touch hd with orange via Quidco. Will receive tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Only looking for 12 month contract, quidco validated within hours. Strange though, I thought it was exclusive to orange for several months ?

I'm on the phone to Vodafone tryinh to return my N96 now - what a piece of rubbish!!! I've never ever had such a sluggishly slow phone, it's almost impossible to use, I hate it!

I dunno whether to go for the Blackberry Storm or the HTC touch instead, but this is rubbish, it has to go.

Edit - result!! I'm returning it and they are giving me a HTC touch pro instead, I'll have it tomorrow. The guy said loads of people have been complaining about how slow the phone is.

My wife has a HTC Diamond (it's the only sort of diamond she's getting from me) and it's lovely. The only thing I'm not keen on is the lack of a micro sd slot, but if 4Gb is enough for you music and photos then get that. Very nice pda indeed.

I spoke again today to O2 retentions and they say they still have no date they will be getting them. I would imagine those HDs on that site are possibly unbranded? If they're not - it makes a bit of a mockery of their own internal knowledge!


Anyway - I mentioned previously they had offered my the Touch Diamond on £25pm 600Mins, 1000txt and web bolt on and phone free. (I decided against it at the time as it meant waiting yonks for an HD which Id prefer.)

I did ring them back before and they denied me that offer and expected me to pay the full whack so asked for a PAC on both contracts. Today I rang them to ask when the HD would be in.... and got round to talking about the Diamond again. This time they offered me the phone for free but for £27pm - and with 1200mins. (So £2pm more for 600 more mins.)

I accepted the deal - but on my wifes contract ('cos she just busted her phone!)

But have a cunning plan!!! (As always!)

They have given me the deal with a 40% loyalty discount applied (it should be £45pm) However after a week, I'll be ringing them back on the "staff" section where they deal with staff discounts and company related offers. I will complain that my 30% discount hasnt been applied - and hopefully get that price knocked down to £18pm. If they decline I will just return the phone. I have a feeling this should work as I am entitled to the discount and it hasnt been given. (The fact something else has is irrelivant in my book! - At least that will be my argument!) Fingers crossed!!!

Hopefully I can do the same via retentions on the HD when its available and go that backdoor route for a second time! Got nothing to lose anyway!

Yes - as does the Touch HD - which really is a much better phone. The biggest improvement is the 480x800 screen res.

Stay away from the Nokia 6500 slide - the ex is on his 4th in as many months its a nightmare phone with no end of problems
