    I have had my rubbish Nokia 3310 for 3 years now and it keeps crashing on me, so i want to buy a new one! Obv it's pointless buying an already out of date phone, so i want this one! It looks sweet! It has everything i want!

    Samsung E700::

    Everyone that I know of who has had a Samsung phone has been disappointed with theirs (and wish they'd stayed with Nokia!!). The main problems were really bad software bugs, like after the alarm went off for the scheduler the phone would start one of the games :eyebrow:

    Most also found that about once a day one of the screens would go blank/white and although the phone would function (without the screen) the only way to get it back was to turn the phone off and back on again.

    They're also nasty for writing text messages, especially if you wish to include any symbols in your text.

    I'd recommend Sony Ericsson, they make great handsets

    I just got a E700 the other day (£30 with my mum's uprgrade :D just stuck my pay & go sim in it )
    So far, I'm very pleased with it, nice size, decent camera and looks good.

    I find it quite nice for writing texts and symbols are easy enough.

    It looks really nice and i cant wait to buy it now! Im gonna go on contract with as many free txts as humanly possible!

    Another question :: Anyone on contract get free texts? Do they pass on to the next month? E.g. say your getting 100 free a month and you use 10 in january, do you get 190 in February? I presume not! Just checking?

    I think mosts texts on contract phones do rollover, its the PAYG deals (ala O2 300 per month @ £10 per month) that don't...In my experience anyway

    im sorry, but nokia phones are utter crap. i love my samsung (even though you spoiled little kids would think its horribly out of date) and wouldnt trade it for 10 billion nokias. so its just a r225h ... it does the job. and its quite easy to text with it, i do it while driving 70-90 mph on the freeway daily.
    my moms nokia is just over a year old, hasnt ever been tossed or dropped ... and feels like its about to fall apart at any second.

    id go for an ericson, but i cant find the one i want around here ... ohio is notorious for slow rollout of new gear. hell ... the t616's are considered new fones here ... most of my friends havent even seen anything like my fiancee's t300 ...

    anyway, enuf ranting.

    Most Nokias I've used have been taken a hefty beating before they break. Admitedly my latest one (6210) isn't exactly sturdy but my old 3210 used to get dropped quite often and its never had a problem. It also went for a swim in a swamp inside my pocket and that didn't affect it at all.

    I find flip phones to be far less rugged and they wear out from alwasy being opened and closed.

    Just a pity that common sense isn't one of the qualifying factors...

    Whether your looking at the phone or not, its still a distraction. And you can't use the fact that you drive around in a tank as an excuse...what would you feel like if you hit someone elses car, and you where fine, but the person(s) that you hit was killed as they weren't driving a tank? What if that car had a small child in that you killed because you weren't concentrating? Would you still think its OK, because your alright because you drive a tank?

    Think about it.
