If it's a PAYG phone you're after you can always get it unlocked so it will take any sim card - you don't have to be stuck on Orange if you don't want to.

Personally I don't think LG chocolate is a good phone. Ok so it looks nice, but as far as functionality's concerned it's quite useless. For starters it doesn't have an expandable memory card slot so there's only a limited amount of music, pictures etc you can put on it. I had a pink chocolate for about a week before I took it back because it drove me up the wall. Hated the touch sensitive buttons and button response lag when texting (kept missing out letters).

If you can't afford w850i, get the w810i. It's a decent phone and not that different from the w850i.
