    i have one on contract,quite pricey but well worth it.i think this phone is amazing some cool apps and looks sexy!

    If you have too! me i like to be different and i cant stand touch screens so i have a samsung i850 (inov8) Your choice though:?

    What are you going to really use it for? is it mainly for calls, do you want the net, emails etc or do you just want to look cool?

    if you use it for internet and as a tool is worth every penny. Almost regret not getting it earlier. Got rid of my diary, completely dependent on it, budgeting, appointments, notes... music, the quick email access...amazing and fun whilst you are using it too.

    Ive had both iPhones (1st and 2nd Gen), they do have issues (as all phones do) but im already waiting on the 3rd one coming out!

    hmm cheers for response. yeah its the internet i want it for. 18 month contract is a bit of a stinger tho?

    Why not go for the new Blackberry Pearl on PAYG, touch phones arent all they are cracked up to be i have a LG Cookie and its great for the price but they all have there faults, if you sat looking at all the pros and cons you would never buy a phone (or anything else to be honest), or there was a deal here on Virgin i think for the new Nokia 5800 for £180

    i got my heart set on an Iphone methinks. Its just working out cheapest way to do it.

    i got an iphone at the start of jan. At first i was really unsure if i had made the right choice, but over the last few weeks i've come to really love it.
    Just a case of trying to find the perfect case for it now, think i'm going for the switcheasy rebel.

    Oh and i decided to buy the phone on payg and the buy the £20 o2 simplicity sim card deal with unlimited web bolt on (unlimited web is a must for the iphone)

    also i heard something about if i buy a pay as you go phone then i top up a certain amount per month i can get free minutes?

    I've just received the iPhone and lovin it so far!

    Got a seperate app for eBay, so I can check items im selling/buying. PayPal, so if I buy something here, then I can go straight to that to pay someone...facebook app for checking that, plus you can use your gmail account, as well as others for checking email on the go....I really like it! Loads of other apps which may it good to access what you need at the push of a button! :thumbsup:
    Good for browsing the net too!

    Go for it! ;-)

    I'm 6 months into a contract and I fancy a new phone. Although there isn't much else out there at the moment I'm still married to this Iphone until next year @ £45 a month. Pay as you go is the way forward...... I wish I did that now:oops: Great phone though:thumbsup:

    I'm aware of that but Ill still need the minutes :thumbsup:

    Bought the 16gb on payg and have now had it unlocked using the software which is now available free . Now using my vodafone sim and 3g is fantastic compared to the o2 sim which i got with the phone.
    ps if you are planning to unlock then make sure you do not updat the software on itunes as this will updat the modem whic at the moment cannot be unlocked:thumbsup:
