I need help with phone with about £100 budget

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
As title says, so, which phone are best for me? I'd like a touchscreen if possible.

Or £10 per month is also maximum too. Any network carriers please but I'd prefer it to be T-Mobile if possible.

It has to come from popular UK phone websites including carphone warehouse.

Looks very promising. What's its popularity? Are there a lot of Apps and games for it?

EDIT:
Just realised it's android. Again, this is big plus for me.

I have one, its very good. Can be upgraded to 2.2, and almost all apps in the android market work with it, as its the same resolution as the HTC Desire, Galaxy S etc.

However, I would go with the orange phone listed as it is a droid.

Looks very good and promising. Sorry, I'm new to smart phones but why would you think other one is good because it's "droid" and HTC as I know is very popular but never knew that was priced to £100 range.

Well, I have a HTC smart (the phone was released a phew months ago) and its using the new Brew OS, Its a great OS, however there are some issues, No appstore, cant watch youtube videos, as the browser does not support flash, it all depends if you want those features or not, plus since the OS has just recently been released, who knows, we might get updates for those features.
Its a great phone and I would recommend it to everyone, its just there are some some features missing that's all smile.gif

Really, I do not care if there is flash or not because I'm not planning to use Internet as it would be very expensive. Also, I also do not care about appstore if all apps are paid, not free. I would spend no more than £10 (For top up) on this phone when I've bought it.

Ok, thanks for help. I'll REP you guys after I've bought a first smartphone. I heard that someone that was a friend of my relative works at Orange shop. So, I may be able to get a discount ranging 5% to 20%, if I'm lucky, I may even get discount to 30%. The waiting game begins...
