touchscreens are a shit gimmick, give me a keypad anyday

symbian nokias >>> iphone in literally every department

can iphones even run java apps yet without hacking the firmware?

I don't know what the the fuck a symbian nokia is, is that a sex machine for birds?

either way a I bet the Iphone beats them in the aesthetics department and the 'cool/street cred' department.

Iphone FTW

Yeah, but there would be no point for me to have my itouch anymore. Because everything i use it for, would then be on my phone.

I've used iphones, and i don't really like using it as a phone. Something weird about talking to people through an ipod, doesn't feel very phone-like. I think they're amazing, but i like my phones to have keypads, and be a bit smaller than the size of an iphone.

Probably just me justifying this to myself, but i'd rather have say a blackberry, and use my itouch for media purposes, and blackberry for the phone.

I need to get a replacement phone this week as i have the samsung 'pain in the arse' tocco which is slowly getting worse. Looking at a blackberry as it will be easier for work. Anyone got any recommendations or know if any new blackberry models are coming out soon?

Sounds like you've convinced yourself then,

About five of my mates have got Iphones and all love them, and a couple have got blackberrys(not sure if they are the same as the one you are talking about) and wish they got Iphones. I cant see how you wouldnt like using one, maybe if you had a quick go on one and werent used to the keybaord or something, but you get used to it really quickly.

who buys a phone to look cool? maybe back in 1999 when mobiles were rare and other people gave a shit what one you had.

would rather have a phone that actually did stuff personally, but hey.

'did stuff' like what? make calls Puzzled

on a fashion forum its hardly suprising that people prioritise aesthetics.

You buy clothes for what they do? Or how they look? Oh wait…

I dont buy a phone specifically to 'look cool' but the looks of a phone is deffinetly one of the most important factors for me. Plus the Iphone has all the features plus more that I would need. I dont know what others the nokia symbols have mind.

Only thing that puts me off with iPhone is the contracts. 500 texts wouldn't be enough for me.

forget that, just unlock it and run on another contract, buy the phone 2nd hand or off a mate who upgrades.

Iphone's are over-expensive with shit contracts and too fucking big, I don't want some huge precious lump of glass in my skinnies. Plus:

Iphone is the bollocks no doubt, but everyone has got one, so makes it a no-no.

blackberry is worth getting purely for blackberry messenger which is amazing. i dont actually think i know anyone who doesnt have a blackberry i even chat to my grandad on it. I had an iphone and a 3g iphone before, and i liked it, but i would never go back after blackberry. so much better with the keypad also. I would say the iphone keypad is actually shit, you just get used to it so think its good

exaggerating slightly, but out of people my age i know maybe 5 who dont. every single one of my friends have them. makes sense to chat to eachother for free on messenger even internationally. i do however know that its unusual for everyone i know to have them
