New phone

Just been in to the 02 shop in town to enquire about a upgrade and they wanted 70 for the D500 , went to the link 2 shops down and they have it free on a new contract with Orange.
Surly it would make sense to offer free upgrades to keep existing customers instead of just having them for new customers??

Been trying to decide what to go for with my upgrade, got an SPV E200 atm, thinking about the E500 but I'm not sure.

What's the menu lag like on the Samsungs these days? It used to be quite bad didn't it?

Plat - always go directly to your network provider not a shop when upgrading. I made the same mistake with my new phone. I was told Voda would be 60 to upgrade or free with a new o2 contract, so I went with the new contract. When i phoned voda to cancel they said if I had gone there first they would have done it for 10 and that shops get commsion on new contracts hence they make upgrades sound more expensive.
They also forgot to tell me that to transfer my number was 25

doesnt seem to have any lag at all man , going through the menus is very fluid/smooth only beef i have with this phone is that it doesnt have a sms counter like majority of new nokias do and its a orange handset and has the daft toolbar down the side , but when the software becomes available that will be gone

had to find a unlock code too so i cud use it on voda, voda didnt have any when i wanted one :/

tis a lovely phone

That is the same contract i'm on with O2 tbh.

I think o2 r better than orange though tbh. I never got any orange signal in my house, only at my bedroom window which is the back corner of the house ! :/

With o2 i get full signal everywhere in the house

And I also get better signal everywhere i go aswell, no complains at all.

Though my bro tells me i'll get charged for roaming when i go on holiday in the summer, where orange don't...

My missus has changed networks about four times in the past twelve months and she has never had to pay for her number transfere. But when she crossed over from Three to 02 her number went dead for about a week, really dodgy!

She phoned both networks and they couldn't come up with a decent answer, 02 just said its Three's fault, and vice versa.

Always been with Voda, since I was 16 and got mi first mobile. Never once has it let me down. Got an 02 simcard I'm wanting to use as it's got all the texts but been told by mi mate who lives up the road the area I am in doesn't have the best reception. Voda always been great though.
