Found 7th Dec 2008
Due a phone upgrade very soon, been looking at the G1 and would like to know if any of you lot have got one and if its any good?

Ive been using Sony Ericson phones for a while so this would be a bit of a change for me.

Or can anyone else recommend any good new phones around?

Thanks

omg my OH thinking same. On T- Mobile too as they offering 700 mins or 1400 texts or mix of both for \£30 a month with unlimited internet


He also looked at a blackberry or palm treo but not willing to pay £45 a month or more for a plan that would suit him

its abit big

my o2 xda ignito is brill

It's a good phone but the main draw back is that you have to slide the screen out every time you want to type (except to dial a number). This was a major drawback for me.

In terms of the web browser it's better than the iphone.

There is a lack of software, although what is available is free atm.

Me personally I'm waiting for more models to be release and more software. There are rumours that an on-screen keyboard is being planned, but only rumours.

If you want any more info just ask.

Oh I sold mine btw, back to a n95 for a while and awaiting the Nokia 5800.

Its AWESOME

you wont regret it....!

Apart from making calls what do you want to do with it ?

Best advice is to go into a T-Mobile store and have a very long play with it.
