    New mobile what to get

    Right decided to go for contract phone but having looked at a million deals on the internet have no idea what to go for!

    Anyone got a good deal recently? I'm after touchscreen, free phone, free internet and ......... a free 15" laptop!

    Looking at the contract side of things - look for lots of free texts, free calls to people on the same network, free internet and not too high a monthly cost. I am on the same network as my sons and it works out a heck of a lot cheaper.

    I just got the following with Vodafone when I called them last week -

    FREE HTC Desire Handset
    300mins
    Unlimitied Texts
    Unlimited (Fair USage 1GB) internet usage
    18 Month Contract

    All for 26 per month for the first 3/4 and then 35 per month for the last couple as I asked them to price match and they very kindly did.

    I am amazed at the HTC Desire so far, it is awesom!

    Vodafones number is - 08080 408 408

    It'll do me fine! I'm a typical middle aged Mum with a phone that's so old anything will be an improvement

    I'm after a new Android handset, but I'm really torn as to what I want. Do I get the Desire, because everyone else is? Or do I get a Galaxy S, because of the amazing specs? Or do I keep my G1 for the moment and just wait for something else to come along....

    I'd give it a month or so, with Android 2.2 (Froyo) on the scene, I reckon new and improved devices are on the way (which is irritating as I took out a 2 year contract on the Desire just before 2.2 was officially announced and now there's now guarantee I'll get to use 2.2!)
