    Im looking for a phone mainly to use with Instant Messaging. (yahoo if poss)
    I need to use for voice and sms too.

    It needs to fit in my pocket so I guess a PDA is out.

    If I can get it to around 2 hundred squids per year for phone and cost of IM,
    I would be a happy bunny.

    Ive always been a bog standard "pay as you goer" so data prices are a new one for me.

    and...My first post.
    Sorry If im not asking right questions or missing details :)

    Any help or where to look for it, much appreciated.

    The Orange SPV C500 or the C550 will do, windows based, small size and both come with MSN messenger pre-loaded, im sure u can get Yahoo aswell! A great phone and with much better batterylife than the previous builds :thumbsup: U have the choice u should be able to pick up the C500 quite cheaply on pay+go now.

    also u can now buy bundles of data every month on pay+go(Orange extras)

    I use a Nokia 6630 and before that a Nokia 6600. Both run Agile Messenger so I have MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, AOL, and ICQ on them at the same time. It's a good application and free at www.agilemobile.com

    Thanks Samco..

    :)

    Got ideas for the phones now.. cool.

    I was hoping to be able to have IM switched on 24/7..
    Now I need to check what this costs..
    even how it would be charged.

    Does anyone know if you get charged per kb for a message..
    Or how the charges work.
    Ive been searching for tariff info at various places..

    It looks like it well hidden.
    Cos I cant find anything..
    So Im thinking its going to be expensive, otherwise they would be shouting about the prices.

    Thanks for everyones help!
