    Right my mobile has died and gone to heaven....I bought a new battery for it but it still won't work so need to find me another.

    I've got less than a month to run on my contract with O2 so happy to go with someone else instead so I can get a new phone now.

    Anyone got any suggestions of what to or not to go for?

    My old was a Motorola Razr V3i and I loved it but think its time for a change.

    Also contracts.....I'm willing to pay £25 a month(thats what I've been paying) but obviously want as much as possible for least 100 mins and 200 texts.

    Anyone got a recommendation please?

    Its 100 anytime minutes. If you go to Orange have a GOOD look at the website and know what deal you want. They dont offer such good deals when you phone up but if you tell them you know someone with a particular deal or have seen one on the web they WILL give it to you. The best deal I got offered over the phone was 100 mins and 200 texts until I mentioned the one Id seen on their web page. They instantly matched it. :)

    fitz Lovin it !!! :)

    I'm with o2 as well and didnt feel that they were giving me the best contract so I had a look in paper to see what another provider was offering and called o2 and said I wanted to transfer to someone else - not only did I get a brand new phone, but they changed my contract so I was only paying £25 month- gave me 400 free text every month and I am getting my 6 month rental back in cash direct to my bank account after 6 month if I stay with them - (hope you understand that bit). I was only 10 month into my original contract at the time and didnt even want a new phone, so...................I got a really good deal and went on to sell the new phone on ebay for £150 !!!! Moral of my story is - they will want to keep your business so call their bluff and you may just come out with a really good deal and an updated phone to boot.
    Good Luck !!!
    btw - I have a nokia 6111 in pink which i am happy with.

    I seem to have been looking at phones online for the last 3 days!!!

    Found a good deal....Half price line rental for 17 months on an 18 month contract with Orange taking it to £17.50 a month for 500 mins and 500 texts. But I have to claim back the difference rather than just getting it that price.
    Thats on a white sony ericsson ...looks lovely (Thanks for pointing me in that direction Mike!!)

    So I rang O2, who I've been with for years, and they'll double my minutes to 200 and keeping the same 500 texts for £20 a month....but that won't be for a month!!

    Ooooh what to do!!!
