Nokia N96. 2 of the guys I work with have them and reckon they're better than the N95's they had. LOTS of things on them though which I doubt you'll use, as with most phones now :roll:

only going on my housemates experience, the N95 is not fast, we timed it and it took about 5 seconds to get to the write message screen. It takes me the time to click a button on my old 6230. The N96 is the same as the 95, but the processor is clocked down to improve battery life, so its even slower.

I had an E61 which was very good for looking at this forum.
But I have a 3310 now, and I prefer it. :oops:
Phones are getting too "clever" for their own boots nowadays.
Although I do like the idea of using a phone with GPS to record your ride and play it back later, I'd never actually do it.
If it were me, I'd get the best one you can find on your contract, and flog it on Ebay to pay for the line rental.

I've just upgraded with a Sony Ericsson C510. It's got a 3.2 m'pixel camera and takes very good photos. All the rest seems very good.
My only quibble may be the tiny keys so if you've got bigger fingers you may find it fiddly.
