I also considered the HTC Desire and the Google Nexus, but the Legend came out the winner. Mainly because it is a bit smaller than the other two, and also cheaper - 50 and 100 EUR respectively.

I wanted to get an iPhone, but I don't do mobile contracts. Surprisingly enough, the iPhone is the only 3G phone in Finland that can not be bought unlocked and without a contract.

Smiling and still contract free (month to month service, I can change operators whenever I find better prices and still keep my number). Fuck mobile contracts.

They need to join the dinosaurs, along with region locked DVDs and consumer equipment that has the features right there in the hardware, but are software-hobbled so you can't use them.

Don't get me started.

I took my piece-of-shit Chinese iphony clone into the bath to play with (I don't have an RD), and 2 minutes later, the piece of shit wouldn't respond to any kind of touch.

I now need a new iphony, or preferably an i-not-phony. paypal donation address will soon be in my footer, once I decide how to downsize.

Re: What a mobile

What has happened to our community when we only get one post in 8 hours?

Are you all playing with your new phones?

Or did you all follow RD back over to NamePros? :p

UK Mobile phones are ridiculously expensive. I know they are much cheaper abroad because otherwise the take up rates in Africa and India would be much lower. I have a ten year old ex-contract phone on pay as you go. I only really use it to talk to Lenka. Normally, she rings me. If I need to talk to her I ring her and she rings back without picking up. She has load of free minutes on her 3 Contract which is about £15 a month. Of handset are a hardsell as most people get their phones for free with the contract. Most people only have 12 month contracts, so the phone goes in the bin after that. One of the reason I have my own phone is that it has a Querty Keyboard for the once a year or so when I need to Text.

Re: What a mobile

Of course they also come in useful for telling the time when you are out. I rarely wear a watch.

Re: What a mobile

I'm with RD on this one. I have an old phone with no contract pay as you go.

Guess what people, when you go outside, you are supposed to look at the flowers, pretty girls on street, anything but not tap away keeping up with your domains or emails.

In Molvania, talking on the phone outside your house is illegal, and there is no yapping on the train either. Good approach.

At social events, a phone is a distraction. For business, you need a laptop not a phone.

Never mind the pretty girls - where are the Querty keyboards for sale? Are they an Eastern European speciality? I've always found the "u" key so much more useful than that awful little "w" thing!! Can they be played with in the bath?

Same with me. I had this one for about 10 years



and it was excellent. Damn solid, plain and simple. I don't want mp3 ringtones. I don't want to watch videos on my mobile. And I certainly don't want to tell people on Twitter what I'm doing. I use my mobile for ...em... phone calls and even that's not very often. My 15 € pay as you go card usually lasts for about half a year.
