I fancy a new mobile...

Right my phone (Samsung G600?!) is boring me and since I spilt a lovely red over it, it's not working properly.

So I want a new one. I have 8 month left on my contract so I'l lhave to buy one of contract.

I saw the iphone nano and it looks ideal; I want a small phone, as small and thin and light as possible.

Features can kiss my bum cheeks. Calls and texts are all I need, I have an ipod for music and a decent camera for pictures

So with that in mind what is out there that is good?

TYIA

I currently own the SE W890i. While it is small and thin and light, it is naff for texting as the buttons are too small. Couple this with a terribly slow operating system (think writing texts faster than the phone can comprehend, and then catching up with you, only to make about 5 mistakes) and you've got a pretty frustrating bit of kit.

It does have a few tidy features, namely ths music and 2gig M2 card that comes with it, but you have an iPod, so no need for that.

Yeah, all in all, i'd say stay away from the SE W890i.

Maybe look at the old K800i? I used to have one, and it was pretty sharp.

Cheers Wigs,

I liked the look of that phone and the old man has it, we both have big hands but he says it's fine. The OS might be a problem but gone are the days of my speed texting lol, so it might be alright.

Also battery life is important

Edit: The k800 is MASSIVE!

A phone can have a camera, can have an mp3 player and they can be crap because I'll never use them. Small, thin and good battery

All these Samsung have the same problems and never change.

Check out the E71 (Which you will defo say no to)

Look @ the Sony Ericsson W890i and the new anticipated Nokia N96 (To be released this month)

BTW if you are so into calls and text go for a normal Black&White Screen phone. Costs only £10

I'll point blank refuse any bulky phone.

B&W screen? Are you kidding me?

Doesn't anyone make luxury phones anymore that do nothing but be a phone and look good? I.E small and light?

Remember the 8210? I go tthat when it came out and as far as I'm concerned it was the best phone ever! Isn't there one like that but nicer?

Depends on how much you wanna spend. I've had a Nokia Sirrocco which was a basic but nice phone. Can pick them up on ebay fairly reasonable now too:



Or the new luna is also nice:
