I've managed to drown my mobile (Word to wise: Remember to screw the cap on your water-bottle before putting it in your bag). Naturally, I now need a new one and I've decided to opt for a smartphone. Why? Well, having the internet at hand would be very helpful when I get lost and given that I'm in London and I have zero sense of direction, that can get a wee bit stressful, to say the least.

So what do you all think? I'm seriously on the verge of buying a used (cheaper, and I don't feel like giving Apple too much money) iPhone from ebay or Amazon. I'm not sure how I feel about contracts because while the phones themselves are often free, I'll still have to dish out £30-40 a month and I'd like to keep my current number, if at all possible, because it's going to be a hassle to get a new one and having to inform everyone. My current phone is a very basic Nokia, with calls and texts and not much else. I really don't want to go over £200, because that's basically what's left of my student funding each month, after I've payed my rent.

Questions:

iPhone vs Blackberry, Motorola, Samsung, HTC etc etc. What are your experiences? I like phones with fairly large screens (my current one doesn't have that, of course)

Is iPhone 4S really that much better than 3GS, if all I really want to do with it, besides calling and texting, is using the internet, taking pictures and listening to music (I might not even do that all that much because my iPod works fine after five years).


One used iPhone 3G with 16GB for £179 it is!
