Listener Question:

I have a million dollar question (again!) for all the team for a very
real situation
I have been using a PAYG Orange phone as I now work for two companies
and need a separate number.  I bought a £29 Nokia 2330 and, well
basically got £29 worth!
It is slaughtering me on call costs though and I’ve topped up three
times in the last couple of months and twice ran out while talking to
a client so I can’t continue with that arrangement.
I thought about getting a new contract for about £30 per month which
by the looks of it is the going rate for about 600 minutes , unlimited
internet and a decent phone.
Am I mad to do this, Andy hates contracts but i can’t shell out £400
just for a phone right now, but I could I suppose keep the nokia and
get a contract Sim (but where’s the fun in that!) and there doesn’t
seem to be much of an incentive to have the contract without the
I’m looking at the Hero but unsure of Android and the lack of updated
software, and also the HTC HD2 but then what about mobile 6.5?
I use windows 7 for work and also run a Windows home server so I
thought that the Windows may well fit in with all that but no-one
seems to rate it anymore.  The new phone 7 series looks awesome but I
need to sort these call bills out sooner.  Would the HD2 get an
automatic upgrade or would I have to pay?
I already have a 3G iphone for the other number which is now out of
contract and on “simlicity 20” which is great, but don’t want to be
dull and have two iphones!
I got the impression that despite everyone slagging mobile 6.5 off,
you quite liked the HD2 Gareth?
