    Best Phone Available right now or will Be before, lets say Febuary

    Basically, My sister gets 30% discount off of all 02 contracts so im thinking of nabbing me a nice phone. last phone i brought was three years ago, it was a samsung g600 or u800, one of them and I think its now time for an upgrade. She gets 30% discount off of all tariffs so i was wondering which is the best phone either available now or will be before febuary (when contract runs out) I know very little pf phones so any input would be valuable.

    The top picks so far are: the Iphone 4G, Nokia N8 and the HTC phone ( not sure about model)

    I would opt for the Iphone, but ive heard the new one comes out in June so this 4G is probs just a stopgap and I dont wanna waste this opporunity on a stopgap phone, but yeah any help would be greatly appreciated especially from people who have direct experinces with any of these new hi tech phones.
    Many thanks

    Does your sister work for O2 (or for a company that they give employees the 30% discount to?

    If the later, you are out of luck as its been stopped. (I think the best you get crrently is a £125 credit, which is pants - particularly with all the hoops you need to jump through now. I get it...... I'm now with Voda.

    She works for them, like runs a few things for them etc. I just want a phone with good camera, doesnt freeze, isnt too touch sensitive, good memory so I can store lots of messages and stuff on and wont break down causing me to restore factory settings and delete everything on there. Want something reliable but the best as 30% discount is a pretty neat saving so wanna get the absolute best for my money

    dont touch iphone-
    1- cant delete messages in one go
    2- poor camera quality
    3- poor battery life
    4- cant send pics/music via bluetooth
    5- when you receive a message its already opened on your front screen for everyone to nose at
    6- no way of deleting emails
    7- no option to delete songs on phone instead go thru the hassle of connecting to the pc and then using itunes
    8- far too expensive for the hardware you are getting £500+
    9- no way to select your fav mp3 songs as your ringtone
    10- no way to select/change alerts i.e calendar etc
    11- limited to no of apps you can install
    12- big n bulky

    5. You can turn off the preview.
    6. You can delete emails - press the bin icon at the bottom of the email...
    9. You can use free software to create the ringtone, easy.
    11. Limited, but can use folders to hold more.
    12. Not as big as a lot of others.
