Right, I've trawled all of the places and I can't find one that I like.

Basically, I need:

Either a Samsung, Nokia or Sony Ericson (preferably S.E)

More than 3MP camera, Flash and video recording

Bluetooth

and preferably, but not essentially, a memory card slot! :thumbs_up:

For around 150.

LOL, I'm hard to please aren't I! Any suggestions?!

Possibly a tad more than you might want to pay but the Nokia N95 is excellent. It has fantastic sound quality on it.

PayG better value anyway to be honest

I think it may be back to the drawing board though, the n95 will be more than that I guess on payg

Eeeeeek! Didn't know it cost that much. I have it on contract. It's a brilliant phone, I've had my SMS inbox at 2,500 and it still wasn't full. I have an 8gb memory card too... with 800 photos/videos on it. Plus 300 songs.. Great greeeat phone. Only downside is the constant crashing of it... grrrrrrrrrr.

If you have a carphone warehouse near you, go to them, tell 'em what you want and how much.. See what they can suggest dude.:)

See, whenever I do that I end up paying over what I wanted to and come out with something daft like a pink giraffe!

Josh :lol: :lol:

to be honest, I still think PAYG makes more sense for most people. I always get contracts because I know I wouldnt remember to top the thing up but you can pay for exactly what you use and arent tied in for 18 months or more. I've seen contracts now for 24months! tied it for 2years paying 35 or more a month :eek:

Josh look on nokia web site or amazon. Mine was sim free and we did not pay that much. The phone was brand new. It cost more that 150 though.

I could find the cheapest one at 250, too expensive, might wait till it's cheaper!

We have many US contracts claiming to be "under $30 per month," but by the time you add taxes and fees, it's closer to $50.

I still have a prepaid cell phone for personal use.

Unfortunately, I also have a contracted one for work. Liked it much better when no one could reach me! *LOL* Still, I turn it off at 10:00 p.m. and don't turn it on until I'm en route to work each day. That's the agreement! :thumbs_up:
