    I will already have the phone so these are sim card only deals. Minutes/texts/internet are the same pretty much.

    Which do you think is better? Can't decide!

    Thanks

    I don't understand?

    In the next few days I will either have the 9700 or Desire (with your help ).

    The cost of 12 month sim only contract for the 9700 is £10/month and £15/month for Desire.

    Thanks

    Ok I seem to have created a lot of confusion somehow! hehe. I will be clearer:

    -In the next few days I can get a 9700 or Desire, just the phone, no contract/sim card.
    -I will need a contract for whichever of these two phones I decide to buy.
    -O2 offer £10/month for Blackberry and £15/month for Desire - SIM CARD ONLY DEAL.

    So my question is which would you prefer, a Desire for £15/month or a 9700 for £10/month.

    Hope everyone understands

    It's because O2 have different simplicity/SIM only plans - one for iPhone, one for Blackberry and one for all the other smartphones :yep:

    Technically a iPhone simplicity plan works on a normal phone, you get the unlimited internet working. Not so sure for the BB plan, however which network offers at which price.

    O2 are quite lenient about the amount of unlimited data. Orange are the same also, not so sure about the others. Some unlimited ones are not technically unlimited, some have a cap (500mb possibly) and some just have a limit, which means if you go over the limit, they may or might not charge you.

    Make sure it's unlimited, the amount of data you can go through on your phone is quite amazing.

    BB lets you tether as well. No experience for the HTC so I cannot say. If you know loads of other people with a BB get a BB, if you like the touchscreen and more advanced apps, go for the HTC.

    will the contracts offer unlimited internet? Imo the blackberry really lags behind when it comes to hardware compared to the desire. However, If your a txtaholic then the Blackberry keyboard may come in handy. Iverall, I think the desire is definitely worth the 5 pound extra a month.

    why not get the cheapest contract no matter what phone you get? Youre sortof asking 2 questions at once, what contract to get and what phone to get, theyre sortof independent choices you seem to have made into a singular choice.

    £10 a month is only for the Blackberry. £15 month is for any smartphone.

    Why does it matter? Surely BB should be more to include BBm and BIS

    What do you mean why does it matter? You can only get the HTC Desire for £15 a month, no less. Whereas the 9700 is £10 a month. BB have recently had a price cut. So I had to make a decision between the two...

    I thought people were supposed to be smart on TSR? Most the people in this thread didn't even (and still don't) understand! :rofl:

    But if its sim only you can just get the sim and put it in any phone. Can you see why I and everyone else is confused?
