    Looking for a new mobile

    Hi Guys, my 3 mobile contract is about to expire and so I'm looking for something new. Currently using a Sony Ericcson K800i which I have had for 18 months and LOVE, sadly my experience of being with 3 has been pretty shoddy (they've been over-charging me for the past few months, claiming I signed up to a more expensive tariff), I have argued with India till I am blue in the face and eventually gave up.

    So I need a new phone and a new tariff, I would also love it if there were quidco and maybe a freebie thrown in (keep seeing PS3's, WII's etc being offered with phone, not sure if it's possible in my price band). Anyway, happy to pay £30-ish a month (£35 if there was a BIG freebie), I'm mainly a texter, but would like some minutes (just in case).

    Anyone have any recommendation's?

    Cheers Guys,

    Rich.

    Have a look at this oneSony Ericsson K850i … Have a look at this oneSony Ericsson K850i http://shop.o2.co.uk/mobile_phone/Sony_Ericsson/K850i_Black



    Yer the K850i is the most recent version of the K800i. But there is better deals available else where than just getting a free memory card. I have been looking round for a sony ericsson myself with a good free gift. On mobiles.co.uk they are offering the W610i which seems to be a pretty good handset with 600 minutes and unlimited texts on Orange for 35 quid a month with loads of free gifts to choose from like Wii, Xbox, ps3 and Laptops. They have the K850i too with free gifts but no Wii or ps3, but they have got a TomTom. Check out the links:

    Yeah, saw that one and then read on here that the button are a punishment from God....lol. Apparently it's fingernails or nothing to push the buttons down.

    instead of getting contract you go pay as you go with orange which do something like 300 free texts with a £10 top up each month, 500 with £15, or unlimited with £30. and you can use the credit for making calls. (i'm not exactly sure on the free texts, you'll have to double check on the orange website)
