24 months = £769

24 months = £817

12 months = £709
24 months = £889

O2 £37 a month must be for 24 months? So that's £888 for the 24 month period. I guess it boils down to whether 250 minutes is enough? and if you want to upgrade after a year.

Don't think id get away with 250 minutes a month if i'm being honest. I'd end up switching to one with at least 600 then after 24 months that would work out more, for a little less. Pretty good idea that though if 250 is enough, iv'e just been reading the problems people have been having with the handset having got them from networks too. Piss poor all the problems that have been highlighted, especially from a phone worth £500! Fucking hate how networks try and get you to send it off for a week as well. Apple always seem to have excellent turn around time with any problems though, took my mac in a few months ago regarding the charger and it was sorted in 10 minutes. Plus a random sales advisor just started cleaning my mac as a waited Cool

New app i came across this morning, looks to be pretty useful so far.
Works on building up a friends list where you recommend things like places to eat / drink / shops / clothing / music and so on from the selected categories.

It then shows locations of the places you've recommended, so you can go on to your map and see what places people have highlighted near you.
I'll let you see for yourselves though instead of trying to explain all it does…

battery doctor pro is in bigboss, it would be at the bottom; its japanese name comes first but it should come up in the search.

Appreciate that man, thanks Smiling.

Any idea which repo's are best for customising fonts, carriers, lockscreen etc, all of the ones on cydia are just plain tacky.

Anyone have an experience with 3? I'm going to so SIM only for a while so I don't end up upgrading then the new 5s come out in Summer, they have a SIM only plan that would be great for me but not sure how they are as a network, their site says my coverage should be fine, just wondering if anyone has any input from using them.

coverage is ok if you're out in the open. you won't get any signal if you're in a large building or basement, even though my friends on diff networks always will

^ yeah what chris said. three is absolutely fucking abysmal if you go clubbing/attend any sort of event in any enclosed space regularly.
