no idea how this happened, other than what I found the next morning in
my pockets (this was NYE after all, not much of that night is crystal
Thinking perhaps the reason for this was a faulty battery I bought a
new one of Trademe, before I even switched the phone on the battery
started to get VERY hot and I could smell a smokey smell. Oops, I
quickly took it out.
Well, turns out I later find out that my phone had water damage (how
did that happen?!) so basically it is wrecked to an extent it is not
worthwhile repairing. Sad, as it means I've lost all the data on my
Hasn't been good being without an 021 phone, means I've been going WAY
OVER my 500 txts I get on my 027. Recently I've been given a Vodafone
226, and since last weekend I've been using it. Is great to be back
using txt2000, but many is this phone getting to be very annoying
compared to ANY of my previous phones!
Some basic features it is lacking:
1) no camera AT ALL (flash or no flash)
2) not able to send a txt to more than one person at a time
3) no ability to copy and paste within a message
So I think I'll hurry up and once again start looking for another
phone, as before the photography abilities of the phone will be very
important to me. As this is the massive weakness my other phones has,
the Okta Touch.
I've just taken a quick skim over the offerings but it looks like the
K800i is still the best bang for the buck?! Even thought it hasn't gone
down in price at all, I would have thought after a whole year since
last time I looked there would have been a bigger shake up in the
market. Hmmm... time to take a deeper look. So the journey begins! :-D

Interesting and thourogh research. Sorry try to learn about your phone explosion.
The price for the K800i has been relatively stable in NZ over the last year (Sony Ericsson K800i price history). I had a K800i and was more than satisfied with it. I guess the different upgrade options depend on your budget, the features that you really value as well as personal preferences. Good luck with your decision.
