One more task done...

Well I managed to order myself a new phone and get a cheaper tarriff whilst I was about it (1000 minutes free calls and 150 free texts!:p).

I ended up going through three customer service people before it got completed though and I think I may have inadvertantly got the first two into trouble as the third guy I spoke to put in a complaint against them (the first one for trying to sell me a different model and the second one for apparently hanging up on me - although I did say that I thought the line just cut out...? Although it was at a very opportune moment when I was confiming my model and I have a feeling O2 don't want my model to be sold for some reason...?).

Anyway, within the next three working days I will *alledgedly* have a brand new phone. It's the Sony Ericsson K800i and has lots of nice features in it. I decided I'd stick with Ericsson as they seem to last well beyond the yearly contract (even when you throw them down the toilet...) and my last Motorola phone packed up and died within about 8 months!!!!



Been a very busy beaver today but still have loads to do. I've also got a headache now so I think I'll take 20 minutes out to go and lye down and possible do some light reading before returning to the computer screen.

I had that phone, didn't like it much but thats because I'm a flip phone convert. Samsung for the win. That said there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. If you have a year contract with O2 (who I think I recommend to you?) you can upgrade your handset in a years time you know...

Not sold on the flip phones. Didn't help as the Motorola flip one I had died on me quite early on (not a problem with the flip though so it's not really got anything to do with that).

I am with O2 and do get their yearly upgrades. That's why I've just upgraded now - although I've been meaning to do it since May!

SE phones for the win!! I'll be upgrading to that phone next month. My K750i is worn out, the poor thing. Fantastic phone and camera, what more could you want?

Glad to see you getting a phone that works. More bother than it's worth if you're tech doesn't work in a problem free way.

Wouldn't have gone for an SE myself as people I know and myself have had issues with them (poor reception and battery life), maybe they've sorted that out. Of course I go with motorola me which you've had problems with.

Im using one of those right now as this years free upgrade. Seems like a decent phone, and the Camera (3 mega pixel and flash) seem pretty decent quality too (certainly better than my first digital camera thats for sure)...

They are selling this one as the Phone/Camera with MP3 capabilities, rather than that orange thing being sold as a Phone/MP3 player with attached camera...

And seeing as how I almost always take my MP3 player, but almost never take my camera along... It seems like a fair trade-off.
