    Hi, my contract runs out in 2 weeks (and I do not want to keep it on a month to month basis cos I go over my calls and texts every month!) and I am debating which to get out of these two phones and thought here would be a good place to gage people's opinions on the pros and cons of each
    Both come on the same contract, at £36.00 a month for unlimited calls and texts, with 1GB data. The only difference is the iphone costs £169.99 at the start (but if I were to get the iphone I would sell my 32gb ipod touch, so it would work out pretty much free).
    Really, there is nothing to tell between them price wise.
    So which do I get?

    iphone. I had a curve for 2 years and it was okay, but now I have an iphone 4 8GB (got it cause it was cheaper than the 4S and I didn't need siri or the extra memory) and it is just so much better!

    you could get a 16GB 4S instead? there's loads of contracts at carphone warehouse where the phone is free at £36 a month

    I have a white Blackberry Curve 9360 and dear god, stay a mile from that phone. I've had it for four months and I'm counting the months till I can get the iPhone. The Blackberry is so fragile and gets scratched so easily. Lately, my memory card doesn't even appear and I can't save stuff. I could rant about this phone for hours.

    I'd advise looking into Android and WP7 handsets too, if you are unsure about what suits you best then these alternatives are worthy considerations. The Lumia 800/900 and HTC One X/S are excellent handsets. Definitely don't get a Blackberry though, to put it eloquently, they suck balls.

    I personally rank them as follows:

    -Lumia 800
    -iPhone 4S
    -HTC One S
    -Rock
    -Blackberry

    The top three are interchangeable based on OS preference. Try and spend some time using all three systems if possible [=

    I got the iPhone 4S (16GB) today, after having the 3GS for two years.

    I think that it's a really nice phone, it's fast, easy to use. Mine was £36 a month, two year contract, and paid £49.99 up front for the phone. Only downside is that if you use it constantly on demanding apps, the battery life can go in a few hours, which has been an annoyance in many iphones. Other than that, i'm extremely happy.

    Why not the One X?

    Why not the One X?
    Like I said, that was my personal preference. The One X is just too big for me, I wouldn't buy any handset that's larger than 4.2", 4.7" is just ridiculous in my opinion. If the OP feels differently, then the One S and One X are obviously interchangeable.

    I regret getting an iPhone, I had a BlackBerry Curve before and I wish I got the new Bold instead.
