    Mobile Phone Advice Please - Recommend a Phone Please

    Hi all,

    So my wife is pregnant and is due in August. I would like to buy her a phone as a gift but not sure what to get.

    I have just had an iPhone 3gs which she really likes but a tad over my budget. I would like to spend £100 - £120, maybe a little more at a push.

    It ideally needs to have wifi so she can use the internet, access facebook, emails etc.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated, thanks!

    Samsung Galaxy S or S2 or a HTC Desire as best iPhone alternative.

    Android market is just as good as iPhones and cheaper price range

    Also see the San Fran go for about 70-90 but unsure on that one on how good it is.

    Whatever you get make sure you buy her a nice comfortable headset....shes going to have her hands full for years to come.
    Best wishes.

    i5700 seems like an option too.

    So an iphone is within budget to spend on yourself, but not for the woman … So an iphone is within budget to spend on yourself, but not for the woman about to give birth to your child



    Perhaps his on contract, she quite clearly isn't hence why his now looking for PAYG ?

    iPhone contract last i checked (which i could be horrifically wrong) was about £100+ for phone then 24m @ 30ish a month ie alot more than 100quid

    Well, it is second hand from my sister who upgraded to the iPhone 4. I paid her £100 so I hope I have jusitfied myself! We both only spend minimal amount on credit and mainly contact each other. So we are both going on GiffGaff so we get free calls and texts to each other.

    PAYG is a false economy for 90% of PAYG users nowadays when you can get rolling sims with 500 mins, texts + internet for £8 a month or so.

    In terms of smart phones.. the only thing you are really gonna get new that is half decent in that price range is the San Fransisco.

    The HTC desire is the best alternative to the iphone when budget is a concern, but it will still be out of yours im afraid.

    Problem solved then, give her yours, its the least you can do



    lol would solve the issue at hand sounds reminescent of why my missus got the same phone as me in the end

    You could probably pick up an iPhone 3g for £120-ish. Would your wife notice the difference between the 3g and the 3gs? If she would you keep the 3g for yourself and give her the 3gs!
