Title: Phones
Post by: Forever A Shorty on February 18, 2012, 08:19:52
A sensible topic!  :scared:

I'm going to need a new phone soon.  Any recommendations on what to get?  Basically I don't want to be paying too much, as I only really make the odd phone call and a few texts.  If I was to get something flash, do people know how much data would be used per month?  A couple of hundred MB limit doesn't sound very much.  Tempted to get another shit PAYG to be fair.

You could buy a decentish phone for about 150 then get a sim from giffgaff. Might be better for you.

Or, I recommend getting a panther contract with orange so you get swapables (ie orange give you things like Sky Sports, Deezer, newspaper online subscriptions etc for free.)

However, if you want a windows phone, which I heartily recommend you do, then it's pointless getting that panther contract as half the swappables don't work on them yet. So, a cheapish O2 contract, 15pm with 100 mins and unlimited txts, plus a 6 bolt on which gives you 500mb of data, should be good enough. Get a HTC windows phone, rather than Nokia. Although the new Nokia Lumias are the best, supposedly, I fucking hate Nokia and cant bring myself to promote them.

500mb should be plenty enough to browse the web every day for about half hour, and watch a few short YouTube vids.

Straight up PAYG phone: Carphone warehouse if you want to go buy one from a shop, or ebay. Amazon don't seem to be very cheap for phones.

Contract: go straight to the provider. No point going via carphone warehouse or phones4u or anything like that. Just cut out the middle man. The contracts may seem cheaper, but they're not.

I've got an HTC Wildfire running android, got it free with a fifteen pound a month contract. Option of extra for more internet usage but I didn't bother, I'm on the internet at home enough as it is.  :unsure:
