    Talking New phone advice

    Yes my people the time has come to change my awful phone. I currently have an N97 which had it's name changed from the phone, to the damn phone, to the bloody phone and to other names I can't repeat on these forums
    So I now need a new one. The top 2 contenders are a Blackberry 9700 Bold or an iPhone 3GS. Anyone got a good view on either one or other models? Your thoughts and opinions are welcome. Please vote above as well! Thanks in advance guys.

    I'm a huge Android fan, so I'm gonna recommend the HTC Desire. Obviously you may prioritise other features to what I would though. What are you looking for feature-wise?

    Also, where are you? That'll influence things.

    Re: New phone advice

    Is your main aim to be able to make phone calls and (shock horror) talk to someone, or do you want something more?

    iPhone. As much as I dislike Apple, I gotta say its a damn good phone ..
    if you don't have specific requirements and are just looking for a fun smartphone, iphone is the way to go.

    If you require total control over your phone and want to able to customize any way you want it, probably android is the way to go.

    I would go with the HTC Desire or possibly the Nexus One as they both look like amazing android powered phones.

    Nexus One or the HTC Desire, if you're in the market for a smartphone. It would be easier to give you advice if we knew what features you needed.

    Re: New phone advice

    If we narrow your 2 main options, stay away from iphone. Even though apple is a good brand, iphone keeps having this problem with screen breaking out of just looking it and repair costs just as much as a new phone. It was my experience, just walking around and Bam! I was with a very expensive useless phone in my hands and warranty does not covers it. I still don't know how it broke, it was inside my purse in a separated pocket.
