Original N95 on Orange is great, for once Orange seem to have sorted out their firmware and it's been bug-free the whole time I've had it. Battery life is around 2-3 days and that's with a fair bit of web browsing using the company's wireless network. Nokia Maps is useful too, even if you don't opt to pay for the full-on satnav option. Robust too, dropped mine several times and no issues. I prefer it to the 8GB as it at least has removable storage. Even if you don't really use it, having a 5mp autofocus camera can be handy.

Surprised about the I-phone remarks:

I own a N95 and i thought it was cra*p.

I bought a first gen I-phone third hand about a year ago now, and I still think its a wonderful piece of kit - flawed in some ways but so much slicker, easier to use and desirable than the throwaway phones available.

I check my email wirelesly
I can phone people
I can use the internet
The Iphone apps are really good
I can listen to music
The screen is superb for films etc

Camera is pants but hey - that's why I have a digital camera. I dont need a digital camera with an in-built phone do I?

(by the way I'm not an Apple fan boy) 8)

You know...thats why buying a mobile is a minefield. You look a reviews and it all looks OK, then you start reading users reviews and it starts to look like you are buying a lemon... do only people that have had bad experiences with phones post reviews...?

Anyway, waiting for the call from the 3 retention crew :roll: :lol:
