im mr scrooge himself.
but i cant any further. i have to fork out and get a smartphone. want to do proper excel work , emails, QWERTY keyboard, at least 2mp camera, need sound recorder, dont require FM,

i like Blackberry's, but the only one i see on Vodacom contract for < R300 is

A lot of friends suggested the HTC so I guess it is fairly decent. I've played around with the first version and it had all the features you would need at that time.

Phones being so personal means there no right answer... I have a HTC and will be glad to smash it against the wall once the contract is over, query keyboard and all. Kaaak van die duiwel...

Well, seeing as most smart phones are trying to be too smart for there size, dont ask which ones people are happy with. Rather as which ones people are least unhappy with. The least complaints I have heard was for Blackberries.

Got a HTC Touch Diamond. I'm loving it. Used to be a Nokia only man.

There are some little irritations but not more so than any other phone.

The guy sitting next to me swears at his Samsung Omnia the whole day. I am convinced he would have sworn less if he got an HTC.

I am very uncomfortable with the blackberry's always connected to the internet model. Something just ain't right with it.

You can get both phones for around R330 pm on MTN anytime 200. But I would suggest phoning your privider's cancellation department and asking for a better deal.

They will easily shave of a R100 pm somewhere.
