Right, have got my free upgrade on the 17th and can't decide what to go for to replcae my k800i (which turned out to be a great phone tbh). The following have got my attention though:

* N95 8GB
* Nokia 6500 Slide
* Samsung Tocco

The only thing that worries me about the N95 8GB (as via reviews it seems to have everything you could want on a phone) is the size. As i'll be carrying this phone around a lot this is important. What do N95 8GB think?

The tocco/6500 caught my eye as it seems so compact, looks like an iPhone and seems to get all round positive reviews.

Thx

iPhone is free on certain tariffs and prices are free, 59, 99 or159 depending on model you want and iphone contract you take !

id say the n95 8gb, but the new n96 comes out soon so it will be obsolite in a few months
After reading the reviews on the N96 8GB there is no way on earth it could be obsolete in a few months. I'd imagine a phone with as many features as the N95 8GB should last a fair while. Anyways, not botghered about having the newest phone each month, just want somethiong solid that last 0 like mu k800i has. :) :smurf:

lol lol and lol.

Just called up voda for an upgrade to a tocco. Apparently none of these are in stock for an age, so decided to go with the N95 8GB as didnt want to wait. Didn't want to pay anymore and wanted to simply get a free upgrade on my £24/m price plan.

Now the first person i called wanted a £300, yes £300 contributon for the phone sdtaying on my original plan. He explained how poor voda were and how they were paying £200 too, oh how i wept for them. After a lot of haggling he told me he only has a certain amoutn of money to 'spend on customers' each day and that his quota was nearly up for the day (if i'd have called first tging in the morning could i have saved myself a couple of hundred quid????).

At this point i start to explain that i'm disappointed at the fact i have been a customer for 2 years and they want to lock me in a 24 month (24 months!!!!) contract. I ask when my current contract expires at this point as i am sitting in front of a voda leaflet saying i can get a free n95 8gb for £30/month.

At this point i get transferred to a 'specialist' team (????) who may be able to help me. Within 5 minutes they guy had offerred me an upgrade to the n95 8gb, on my current plan with a £10 contribution. Within the space of 15 minutes I had just saved myself £290. How on earthj is that even possible?!?!?!?!? Shows what a bit of haggling and being anal can do anway
