I'm in a crappy situation at the moment, renewed my contract early about 18 months ago and the phone i got at the time was what i wanted because i had a work HTC Touch to use, and it was a backup. Since moving job last year i've had to put up with a Sony Ericsson w910i and it just turns itself off.
Just rang Orange after reading the thread to see what they can do for me regarding the above mentioned phones and they suggested i waited another 2/3 months when all the phones will be pretty much free.
So here's to another 2/3 months of my phone turning itself off
Hope the iPhone hits Orange, would much prefer that over most others, just for the apps alone

I'll reiterate my question to cover other models :P
What is the HTC like in terms of additional software? Can I for example get Turn by Turn GPS software, like TomTom or Garmin on the Touch Pro 2?
Also, the same question for the HTC Hero? What is additional software like for the Android OS and can I also get Turn by Turn GPS on Android?
Also, is online community support (3rd party developement) good for the above 2?

The Touch Pro 2 is a windows mobile device. So any software that works on Windows mobile will work on it.

The community for Android is supposedly superb, and developing for both Android and WinMo is very simple (Java and .Net are easy to code in).

- Rep Power
If you are thinking of getting the N97 don't hesitate about it. The phone is awesome with amazing capabilities. The only negatives are the resistive screen and it's low brighteness. If it had a capacitive AMOLED screen and a hardware 3D accelerator it would be so much better. Also lack of system RAM is not a major drawback as new firmwares will optimise memory usage.
Don't worry about the software problems/bugs. After V11 of the firmware the phone is very stable. Nokia is famous for realeasing handsets to the market before making sure they have stable firmware. But they provide massive support, remember the N95 got it's last firmware update in January 2009.
Not to mention the massive support of software from the S60 community and the ability to do everything from your PC with Nokia PC Suite.
Edit- Also Garmin Mobile XT runs great on it with full touch capabilities.

I would like an Android phone but I want one with a keyboard so at the moment it's looking like the HTC instead.

It seems all the decent deals are only on the HTC Hero Graphite. So, I might just jump on to simplicity until something decent pops up on the HTC Hero White.

G1 is a little dated now actually but it looks like the Samsung Bigfoot might be promising. Seems strange to be thinking about getting a Samsung though!
