    Hi. I am going to upgrade my T68i to a T610.

    Any recommendations on good places to buy it on contract, and which
    networks?

    I use it mainly for SMS, and send a lot (between £80 and £180 total bill
    p/m, even with 100SMS free), but would also like occasional X Network calls
    aswell. So, maybe O2 seems the best option with one of their SMS bundles.

    I must admit, I like Carphone Warehouse, and would consider going back to
    them if the deal was right.

    There are so many mobile phone retailers out there now, it is a nightmare,
    unless you know what you are doing.

    Cheers.

    I myself just ordered a T610 (to upgrade my T68i) on O2 online which comes
    with 500 free texts which I think would be useful for you seeing you spend
    that much. If you buy via the link www.o2.co.uk/ucas you get £25 off the
    usual £49.99 and can also trade in for up to £50 (you only get £25 for the
    T68i, my recommendation is sell it on Ebay for £50 instead). I'm however
    waiting for them to get it in stock before they send it :-(

    Another option if you aren't fond of the idea of O2 online is Orange.
    www.orange.co.uk in the special deals section for this month they have
    something they call "square deal" with a number of free texts etc... Only
    thing is the phone will have Orange written everywhere (not as bad as
    Vodafone live but still annoying) and the phone will be most likely locked
    to Orange. Also their handset cost is more but it depends on the tariff you
    choose.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers bud.

    Those text bundles on O2 seem pretty good, so will probably go with them.

    I've never been a fan of Orange, because in my area the reception is pretty
    hit and miss.

    O2 offer good value, but their support can only be described as crap.

    Problem1: Each time I came to contact them via email, they ignored it. I
    always end up having to phone a 50p/min helpline to actually get anything
    done. They have completely ignored at least 2 support emails from me, and
    for the third one they send me a email a couple of weeks later saying they
    had lost my email, and could I resubmit it pelase. Of course i ended up
    paying 50p/min to get it sorted

    Problem2: The online billing thing simply does not work. According to my
    sister who has had O2 online for a while, the facility to see calls from the
    next bill is broken

    But it does offer great value for money if you text a lot (like me), 500 /
    month is not bad, but be aware that you will effectively have to pay per
    incident for any kind of support
