Right in no particular order.

@DOH I pay £27/month on contract with O2. I wanted to get off Vodafone as I thought they made some of the N97 experience worse and coverage was a bit more spotty than my prior O2 days. IIRC 300 mins, unlimited text and 500Mb data which suits me as when I had 900 mins I never used more than around 210 on my busiest month most were a lot lower and I do a lot of data related stuff over wifi so again go nowhere near my limit. When I was looking back in late August it was between the SGS2 and HTC Sensation and if I'm honest there wasn't a lot in it either way. All the reviews seemed to indicate those were the two to go for but the Arc got good reviews as well but those were consistently the top two with most saying it came down to personal preference.

@Kaje, I used an iPhone (3GS) in the past and found it to be really unintuitive, annoyingly limited and it wouldn't even form a bluetooth connection with any of the other devices in the room all of which were happy to talk to each other. I ended up telling the person who asked me to transfer their phone contacts to enter them manually. Up until that point I'd always assumed they would be really intuitive and a joy to use I was wrong I actually preferred my N97 at the time and that was a phone Nokia apologised for the cockups the made with it. Other things that have always put me off since the hardware started to get competitive (iPhone 4 basically) is the Apple knows best walled garden and the need to use iTunes to sync etc. As the advert said you don't have an iPhone and I'd like to keep it that way, but each to their own.

@Kev cheers

Richard

The 3GS is what I use, and I genuinely don't have any of those issues! :shrug

I send contacts via a text, although fair point about bluettooth. If you jail break an iPhone though, you can get round that apparently.

Should you need to jailbreak a phone that costs nearly $900? :lol

People also 'jailbreak' (or equivalent, might be called 'rooting') Android devices.

:rofl Rooting

That means 'shagging' in Australia.

Updating an iphone for a mate now. Absolutely awkward. Itunes has to be the worst application in the world.

The update from OS4 to OS5 was a pain, but usually it is OK. OS5 is very different though apparently.

Its a series of ongoing updates, improving battery, speed and the general appearance etc. That said, any of the android systems for 2.2 onwards are really good. I'm lucky that I get a lot of different phones and tablets to play with and I think android is the best overall option. I don't need any software on a PC to get it working etc. It just does everything I need.

I've managed to get 2.2 onto my Android, which does seem a lot better than 2.1. Can't get iplayer/flash working though, and I'd love to be able to get Sky on it, but it seems Apple have cornered that part of the market.

Mine came with Gingerbread and it's been great, flash works flawlessly when i've used it and I thought Sky was available although I haven't really looked much further than the Sky+ app to remotely set my box. I would definitely go for Gingerbread or even Ice Cream Sandwich over Froyo as a lot changed in the above releases.

I'm not sure whether my hardware (Orange San Francisco) will go to 2.3, 3 and especially 4. Although I'm by no means incapable when it comes to gadgets, if it's not Cisco badged I struggle a bit.
I've found a decent forum that helped me upgrade to 2.2, but it was all a bit of a faff and it gets a bit geeky when they start talking about Swedish this and Hungarian that........and no, that's not me getting mixed up with that other website I frequent. :lol

I'm looking at a Samsung Galaxy II or an iPhone 4S.

But don't tell MOH! ;)

Go for the 4S, seriously, played around with one and it's more than awesome.
