cons afaik

cant remove the battery, so you cant carry a spare battery incase you have no recharge point where you are going, i.e camping for example.

its only EDGE i.e 2.75G not 3G

Camera is only a 2mp

No GPS

apparantly it doesnt support MP3 format, only aac.

So if you can live with them, then go ahead.

Lol just noticed a little clause:

No wonder they were trying to get me to move to an iPhone contract haha, officially, you will never be eligable for an upgrade, and you will never be able to leave your tariff if you want the iPhone to continue working... so whilst the contract is 18 months minimum term, its really as long as you intend to keep and use the phone, so could go on for years without an upgrade etc...

Pretty shitty to be honest, I think Apple have got it all wrong and are totally bang out of order with it. You pay 269 for the phone, then a further minimum of 630 over the course of 18 months, for paltry minutes and text allowance, not to mention any further charges you incur, and at the end of it all, it will have cost you around the 1000 mark minimum and you wont be able to even use the phone, unless you stay on a iPhone contract. So they are basically charging you a bomb to lease the phone from them, but you get no cover if it breaks! And no upgrade when its out of date!!

Who the fook do Apple think they fookin are? Cheeky ... robbing barstard if you ask me mad and people say Microsoft are bad and Apple are poor little innocent Apple mad mad

it is naughty of them. I have had a go and got bored of it quicker than expected :-(

I will let the hype die down and see what offers that they can do in future and what software upgrades they release to enable a richer internet expirance.

But until then what should i waste my money on? Lol

You could get a lookalike phone on Ebay for 80 - my mate has one and their actually very good for the price, I was expecting them to be utter crud, but was surprised.

Their a bit slow at intensive things cos the CPU is only 100Mhz, but fine for most things. They got quite similar software and still have touchscreen, 2 meg camera etc...

I had a feeling about that Matty, as the sim (like the battery) is not removable. so there would be no way of putting in a PAYG sim after the contract had run out.
