    I've never had a smartphone before, just a stantard nokia phone. I normally use it to ring and text (obviously) and sometimes go on facebook or check email to kill time if I'm on public transport.

    I'm on o2 simplicity at the moment, I've been with 02 for 5+ years, so will try and get a good deal out of them.

    wouldnt bother with a blackberry. good for emails and the like but not for internet.

    ive got a htc hd mini, its about 3/4 the size of an iphone, does what i need but doesnt have all of the capabilities of an iphone or some of the bigger htc phones, like using spotify and etc. free with orange contract.

    also as far as o2 are concerned, id been a customer with o2 since it was called bt cellnet, a good 10 years, and they had no interest in keeping my custom with a better deal than orange so i told them to go and **** and went with orange.

    Although I'd never recommend a HD mini to anyone because it runs the old Windows Mobile. But you can actually use Spotify on it now. http://www.spotify.com/int/mobile/windowsphone/

    Yeah the OS isnt great, but for a general phone user it doesnt make much difference if they want to go on facebook or youtube or whatever.

    It doesn't say anything about the HD Mini being available. I read its something to do with the lower resolution, since the screen is much smaller.

    Personally, I disagree. The OS does make a huge difference when it means it crashes all the time (my Xperia X1 used to crash pretty much every day). Plus, with Windows Phone 7 out now you'd be silly to get an old Windows Mobile device IMO.

    And from what I can remember, with windows mobile you can just download the cab and install it yourself, so matter what your device. Could be wrong though as I eventually gave up on the platform cos it annoyed me so much.
