looking at upgrading my mobile phone. The Blackberry is ok, but clunky and with terrible reception.

On offer is the HTC Tattoo - the HTC Hero's cheaper cousin. I'd love the Hero, but it would cost me £150 on top of the contract, whereas the Tattoo is free. Both run Google's Android OS, which looks like fun.

I had considered the iPhone too, but again, cost was a serious factor. Orange offer a free iPhone with contracts of £30/month or more, but not the 3GS model


Anyone out there got an HTC phone?

struggling to find an Orange talkplan with inclusive web browsing limits for less than £30/month - on my old plan I got unlimited* data on the blackberry for £2.50/month, but that doesn't seem to be compatible with the HTC phones.

What I want is the £20/month tariff, and to be able to bolt on some web browsing - I use my phone a lot to check internet/email (via internet) and if I'm going to get an Android phone, I really need to have a sensible data tariff to go with it!




* 250MB/month, iirc, which is hardly unlimited, eh?
