The Phone.

Well after many weeks of deliberation the phone i chose was the Samsung Omnia HD. So i went into town to purchase the said item and guess what. NOBODY sold it! Absolutely none of the big providers contract it or sell it.
I will have to choose another. I'm sick as a parrot.

That's a pity but you're just ahead of your time Alan!

What a headache, I remember looking at this phone - or something similar in June time. I phoned them up to get it and they'd stopped doing it a few days before - marvellous. In the end I plumped for the iphone though and never looked back.

afootinthehills and the weekend dude:- As it happens i had to go into the Trafford Centre, don't ask me why!
I went in one shop and asked. The guy said that Orange were doing it. I said i went in Orange in Manchester but it wasn't on display.
So i went into Orange in the TC and low and behold there it was. I was jumping for joy until i was told that i couldn't buy it. Just contract for £35/month.
Well i am going to have a serious think about it because i don't want to leave Vodafone really.
Sheila is getting the iphone next month and she can't wait for April to get here. I want a phone where i can take spare batteries with me and has Symbian operating system, so unfortunately the iphone won't do for me. Pity because i am Apple mad.

Does 'blogger' support Vodafone? I'm a long way from making up my mind on which phone to get, but I'm not on a contract with my present Nokia so am not under presssure to decide.

I have just looked at blogger help and its only O2 and orange from mobiles. It seems a bit weird that.

But as long as you can get on the internet and have a mobile blogger url you should be able to post, what ever provider you are with. (I think)

Judging by my short experience of the Samsung Omnia (my sister has one) I think they did you a favour. It was the most confused and confusing device I have ever tried to use (no, I didn't succeed in 'fixing' it for her). She's desperately trying to return it.

Michael, Sorry for delay in reply. Thanks for your post. I have now completely changed my strategy on the issue of phones, GPS and all things mobile.
I won't be getting the Omnia.
Sorry tohear of your sister's probs, it must be very frustrating as they are not cheap are they.
