    Hi All

    About to upgrade my phone and I want to know what phones would be best.

    The only things im intrestedin are Web Browsing (so need to be easy to browse the web, looking at real sites not mobile versions!), phone calls and texting.

    No intrest in playing music, playing games etc!

    Was thinking about the N95 but it seems difficult to get a good deal.

    I am going over to T-Mobile Web n Walk. And I am prepared to pay up to £37.50 and 18 month contract (rather it be 12) as long as the phone ends up being free.

    Any advice ?

    Cheers

    Hi

    I have an N95 and it is good for the web but the battery does not last long. About 90 mins and it will need to be recharged. However most websites work and the screen is great.

    The SE M600 does not let you view as many sites, however the battery lasts longer and you can use a stylus to move around the screen.

    Not a lot! One charge does not last long and its easy to spend the odd hour on the internet only to discover that the phone dies later in the day when you need to make a call.

    Don’t know have not tried that yet. I find it very difficult to stay of the web.

    For me the reason to have the N95 is that the web is so good. If I just wanted to make calls and send text I would go with a smaller more basic phone like a W880i.

    This is the question that I have at the moment do I stay with the W880i on an 18 month contract that Orange are offering me as an upgrade. Or do I dump Orange get my pac code and go with the N95 from T-Mobile?

    I currently have both handsets but could return either as I have had them less than 7 days.

    Nokia E61 if you want a desktop browsing experience, plus the battery life is really good. I use mine for email, internet and phone and it lasts all day. it has yet to die on me.

    The other Nokias might be good (as they all use the same browser) but as the screen is smaller (although higher resolution) you might want to avoid them.

    given up on the N95. Looks overpriced for what it is.

    Considering E61.

    Anybody got more suggestions ? Is there any windows mobiles worth looking at on t-mobile?
