Does anyone have this and what do they think of it?!

I think I'll go with that one, I'm very tempted with the new 3G iphone but it doesnt have video, and that really really annoys me!

Three people who Chris works with Josh have this phone through 3. Two of them are on the 3rd phone and the other one is on his 2nd. I've just asked him and he said they keep freezing and then locking and there is something else as well as well.

The only reason I know is because we were thinking about it but we went for the N95 8GB in the end and it is a brilliant phone.

He can find out tomorrow.

Mine is with Orange and so far (touch wood) it's been perfect. Is it possible 3 got a faulty batch?

I was planning on orange or o2, if orange is much cheaper then I'll just unlock it and then pop my O2 sim in it ;)

Not sure if this will work but the photo I have added was taken with my 6500 and I sent it to my Mac via bluetooth. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and is the best phone camera I've ever had.

I generally just pay the 15 or whatever it costs to do it via the web ones. You pay, put in all the phone info and immediately get back an unlock code. Has worked great on loads of phones

These people use this type of site:
http://www.peters1.dk/unlock/nokia/online.php?sprog=en

and then charge you for it.

It doesn't work for the new BB5 lock nokia has and I'm going to have to do it by cable apparently.

I have found some instructions so will try it, if it works I'll get back to everyone with the link... don't wanna be breaking anyones phone!

Well not always, I always check the free ones first and I've definitely had ones unlocked that werent available on any of the free sites

better than a bricked phone that's for sure! Orange are really good. Excellent reception nowadays etc.
