Is it the Desire? I cant afford an iPhone but I can afford a Desire or something like that, with proper contracts of 25 a month for 18 months, instead of 35 a month for 24 months with no minutes or texts AND 200 for the phone itself....

I'm also thinking of going in for a Desire to replace my E71.

Iphone's initial cost, contracts and minutes are a piss take...

I'd take that t-mob deal before the iphone, you're getting a better phone (or at least as good for the apple fanboys) for less.

Desire vs Legend

http://www.knowyourmobile.com/comparisons/451076/htc_desire_vs_htc_legend.html

Basically the Desire is the better phone 0 faster processor, bigger screen etc

I have a deep burning hatred for Vodaphone, the last time I had a SIM with their name on I didnt get a signal anywhere, their customer services were shite, and they waste too much money on shitty adverts with overpaid, too old footballers.

If you like them though

I didnt really want to leave O2, but T-Mob have always been good to me

Im stuck with o2 for another couple of months, unless they offer me a decent deal though I'm off, vodafone seem to have better deals this time around.

I have dome just this at the weekend. It's really simple to use, although maybe a tad too Facebook oriented. I'm using right now

Just done the exact same upgrade myself! The only issue i have is with fat fingers using the touch screen but it quickly learns what you're trying to type and i got used to it pretty quick. Battery life is a bit pants but i do hammer it to be fair, and the sat nav option is spot on - even shows google streetview of the location when you arrive
