    Well I've bought the Touch Pro now and I know that the EduGod has been oodling over other nice HTC gadgets as we could have had an Edu-war over them as we both wanted HTC phones but thankfully we chose different models Looking forward to getting it next week

    They are just generally very good phones. They are most often re-badged in a lot of places, O2 started the trend I feel fairly safe to say with the O2 XDA back in the early 00's. This spread to the other networks and is quite common. HTC is the firm that makes them all before re-badging. I would give them a look up they get good reviews.

    The UI is second to none, and the web browsers awesome. plus the sound quality using headphones is amazing (much better than my previous iPod)
    Ive got an iphone 3G - they are also releasing OS 3.0 looking forward to that.

    They must have an adaptor to connect to telly or something as there are setting for NTSC or PAL etc on the iphone 3g

    Exactly why i do not want a Touch Phone! I sent just over 3000 Texts last month, i can text without looking at the screen almost on my N95, touch screen? NO WAY.

    Instead of a new phone have you thought of just staying with current phone and changing to a SIM Only price plan? Thats what i did a year ago and i still do not want rid of my N95, its the first time since i was 18 i've never wanted to upgrade when contract is up.

    i had an rdp add on for my htc touch (removed it as it kept complaining about lack of ram turned out id got a music file in main ram rather than on the card )i think newer versions may have it built in but a lot of them dont seem to be wifi enabled anymore and tbh the screen was far too small for rdp youd spend all your time scrolling round

    have had various touch screen phones (way before they have become common place). history
    • orange spv
    • spv e200
    • spv m2000 (touch screen)
    • spv m5000 (touch screen)
    • spv m3100 (touch screen)
    • htc touch (touch and gesture)


    currently have a nokia n95 as i lost my touch the camera is million times better that any of the above but i do miss lots of the functionality thinking of either the nokia n97 or htc touchpro2 next

    should have tried to get a Sony Ericsson W300i on ebay.

    They're small, cute, have a easy to use MP3 player built in with a really rubbish camera

    I love mine, everything on it is easy and the predictive text actually works, and doesn't annoy me.

    AND it seems pretty indestructible too. Mines been through so many crashes on a bike / longboard, still holding strong!
