Upgrade Due - What should I get?
I'm due an upgrade on my mobile phone contract in 2 days time. I'm currently on O2 and my tariff is as follows:
Unlimited Web Bolt On (200Mb/Month FUP)
£25/month for the duration of the contract (£35/month normally)
Now, reading up on other forums, including O2's own forum. It is not a good time to be on O2. Apparently they have been so royally done over by Apple that they can't offer anyone good deals at all. I personally know at least 2 people who have left because O2 aren't even honouring current deals. This doesn't bode well for my current deal. Add to the fact that I want a nice new phone as my N82 is starting to play up. I was initially hoping for an N97, but think it might not be the right time for it with the software problems and also the poor resistive touch screen. The iPhone 3GS will be way out of my budget.
So, I'm either looking at the Nokia E71 or I'm starting to get more inclined towards the Blackberry Bold. The best deal I've seen so far is on 3:
£30/month (18 Month Contract)
Any opinions on what I should go for? Should I go for the Nokia N97/E71 or Blackberry? Or should I look elsewhere?

It's a nice phone, but I'd like something with a nice big screen for easy Internet browsing.

Wife already has that. If I'm gonna get a full touch screen, I would rather have a capacitive (like the iPhone) than a resistive (like the 5800) however, I might consider the N97, but again it's the price and the bugs!

I was under the impression that the 5800 and N97 used the same screen?
I'm a Nokia nut myself. I had an E51, and "upgraded" to a 5800 because T-Mobile don't offer either the E75 or N97.
If you're after a larger touch screen, how about a G1 or G2? (My wife has a G1 and loves it)

New Samsung Jet? Not a Smartphone, but nice big OLED screen and a browser that supports flash and java.

My other half has that phone and the camera on it is pretty good as well - although took her a while to get used to because to start with the photos she took on it were blurred ( user error or moving the handset too quickly after taking the photo or something )

seriously fella stay well clear of the Blackberry Bold , no end of software issues, our web developer has one and for the 6 months he has owned nothing but issues and thats with 3 replacements , hes now going to downgrade to the 8900 which apperently is rock solid,
Personally I would go for the HTC Touch Pro 2 ask the Edugeek Admins for a review of the ones we supplied them with,

+1 for the touch pro2. I just forked out £400 for one, should be arriving in a week. I feel like a kid waiting for christmas again, I can't wait.

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?

Is this what T-Mobile would have called* the Vario V? (I had a Vario II a couple of years ago, and a mate had the Vario III. Not seen the Vario IV)

t-mobile are all about box shifting, the HTC model are more for people who require a business phone and not a mp3 player with a calendar

I'd recommend the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream). I get 800 mins, unlimited texts and 'unlimited' web (1GB FUP) for £30 a month.
It runs android, and there are thousands of applications for it so far.
