      Re: Have I made the right choice?

      Fair comments

      I can only compare this to the 3gs which I loved using

      However since using this I prefer it to the 3gs in normal use. The screen size is awesome and now used to using it I think I prefer it for web and phone use

      I guess the only way I could really decide is to use the iPhone 5 for 2 weeks and then make the choice

      But my 14 days run out on Wednesday and so I think I will be happy with this phone until renewal

      Re: Have I made the right choice?

      The S2 I had wasn't a bad phone nor Android a poor operating system, so I can understand why so many people are happy with them, I just prefer iOS and the Apple build quality all things considered.

      I was lucky to be honest, I didn't think I was due an upgrade for another 12 months so I jumped on it when the guy on the phone said I could get two new phones. However, the trade off is I couldn't keep my old tariff and now have to pay an extra 20 a month in total. Swings and roundabouts I guess.

      Kies is still a dog's dinner though...

      True Kies isn't great, in fact far from great, but it should allow Ged to backup his contact, data, etc.

      Re: Have I made the right choice?

      That's the only thing I don't like the plastic feel look of this one

      But I got a leather wallet for it and so it is out of sight now anyway

      I use my phone a lot and I am happy with the performance of this one. Infact that was one of the first things I commented on. The speed for the web etc is a massive difference compared to the 3gs

      I would like an iPhone 5 and if the guy at orange hadn't recommended this one I would have got one I suppose. But I did like the look of this one as well. Well for features anyway

      I can imagine the 3GS is slow. I still have my iphone4 and did the sad web tests with both 4 and 5 side by side. The 5 is just so much quicker than the 4 I was quite surprised. Make me want to upgrade my iPad now!!

      Received the new phone about 10 minutes ago. Simply stunning service from Orange.

      Amazing how their service differs. Still waiting for my unlock code from 3 weeks ago.

      The only thing I can think of, is mine is a business contract?

      I know everytime I ring they always put me through to the business section.

      I'm aware it's important to have a good connection with your children, but that's taking it a bit far Scubbie.
