Apple iPhone 3G 8 GB
Advantages: A world of apps to choose from
Disadvantages: Battery life
I've been the owner of the Apple iphone 3g for the past 18 months and I have to say out of all of the phones I have ever owned this is the one I have used the most.
The phone itself was free, with free delivery from Tmobile; however, nothing in life is free so I have been tied into a £35 a month contract for the past 18 months (which came to an end today). For the £35 of my hard earned cash I part with each month I get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited use of the internet so not a bad deal compared to some contracts!
The phone itself took a bit of time to get used to as it was the first touch screen phone I had owned - and I soon gathered that the screen is heat sensitive so tapping away with my false nails got me nowhere! The phone itself is logical to use with 'apps' for everything you may need such as your settings to change ringtones, a clock to set the alarm for the early morning start.
iPhone's are known for their 'apps', to use these you need a iTunes account, where you register a credit or debit card and you can then purchase 'apps' or music from your phone. Many 'apps' are free but there are alo many out there that have to be paid for.
The 'apps' I use most are facebook, yes i'm one of those annoying people who is always on facebook being nosy as to what people are doing. I also use Sky+ plus which allows you to record programmes on you TV no matter where you are, ebay so I can see (or hope!) that I have bids on anything I'm selling and Lloyds TSB, checking my bank balance frequently is another of my habits.
Apart from being tied into a lengthly contract (or paying a large fee) the online downside I find is the battery life, I have to charge my phone every day which isn't ideal but I can live with that.
Summary: i'm off to order the iPhone 4s
