    Depends on what you want in terms of features. You can get a PAYG simple Siemens A62 for £10 on Orange PAYG, a Nokia 3120 (which I have) also on Orange for only £34.99 PAYG. Or if you want something a little more modern with some added extras, you could look at the Samsung X660 and Motorolla V3.

    It all really depends on whether you are looking for PAYG/Rental, which provider is also a deciding factor as handset prices tend to differ on defferent networks (something I have never understood).

    They all have problems somewhere look at how Nokia gets attacked

    While looking at this information - I discovered that this particular phone OS has been hit several times in the last 2 years by trojan like programs. I can't find anything on the Nokia site that indicates that a patch is available. I wonder if it isn't time for Nokia to take a serious look at fixing the problem? Especially since one of these new ones allows someone with another Bluetooth device to steal the user's information.

    I think people were looking for a technical answer like:

    they have poor signal range or the batteries blow up in your hand (no, that was nokia) or they are mechanically flimsy or the user interface is non-intuitive. "they suck" is pretty useless as feedback.

    Myself I have a Sony Ericson and it is a very good phone, So I can say SE make nice phones.

    That does not mean that other brands "suck" << lol :laugh:
