New Mobile

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Want a new Mobile but don't know what one to get. Don't care how much as. And want Pay as You Go/o2 preferably.

Most important features, I'd love to have is:

Built in Camera; that takes great pictures and can zoom in.

MP3

Blue Tooth

And... Hmmm think that's it.

What would you recommend?!

    Samsung D500 or Sony Ericsson K700i.

    Please, for the love of God, steer clear of the fugly Nokia 6230.

    Yeah, I was thinking of the Sony Ericsson K700i. Cause my mate from work has one. Though I can't find anywhere that does pay as you go.

    Cause I want to stay with o2 for me free texts, etc.

    I've just got the Sony Ericisson S700i, not sure if O2 do it on pay as you go though.

    Oooo.... like the look of that. Does it take great pictures then?

    Or, 100 mins and 50 texts.

    Pay monthly 12 month contract, plus you can keep your number.

    Nah, I defintely want to stay away from contracts. I do not trust myself with them. Already have to cough up 30 quid a month for the gym.. Don't want to add anymore monthly bills.

    Though thanks anyway.

    I think you should just go down to the local phone shop and take a look around at the phones, that's the best way to get what you really want.

    You from Belfast aren't you, there's loads of places about there selling phones.

    And you get to spread the cost of the phone across the entire year.

    I don't know if the mobile companies still do it, but you used to get discounts for paying in full at the beginning of the contract, though obviously this was largely unadvertised. Just for the record.

    Yeah, I know, but I wanted to get other peoples opinions that actually are using these different mobiles.


    Though loving the sound of that, Sony Ericisson S700i.

    And very affordable, so will be able to get in in me next wage.

    Samsung D500 photo's.

    Take a look at the city pic - the quality goes even higher than that, plus it comes with a x8 zoom & flash.

    Well you need to know how good a phone is before you buy it, else you might be stuck with something unreliable :razz:

    Now I really like that, but would prefer another network, other than orange.
    Don't like that network.

    it sounds to me that a sizeable chunk of your incomes go on fucking telephones ...this is madness.
    the ultimate cool ...has to be not having one.

    Who said anything about Orange? ;E

    Infact that phone's so new (3 weeks or so), the only network the phone comes on on PAYG atm is O2.

    Aye that's another thing. The phone is so new it's not even on half the website's, and the one's it is on don't even list all of the networks/tarriffs they do it on.

    But yeah, I'm sure. I've got an O2 PAYG one reserved at The Link. Should be in for Monday :thumb:

    It's not exactly been advertised, but you can also get it in a cool looking silver/graphite colour too.
