I want to buy a new phone to replace my current one which is a Sony Ericsson W910i

Because of NZ being difficult to buy decent phones, I've had troubles finding the right one for the right price.

I can buy a glofiish M800 for NZD $463.51 or a glofiish X610 NZD $312.46

Out of these two which do you think is better???

Or what other phone can u recommend that has the same features for roughly the same price???

What network do you want to use it on?
THe X610, won't work on XT, only on Vodafone and 2Degrees and only on GSM mode(it's not 3G compatible)
The M800 will work only on XT in 3g, but on Vodafone and 2Degrees in GSM mode

For the same price as the M800 you could pickup an X800? That's if you want both networks in 3g, but the X800 only does 1.8mbps download.

You might be able to find a nice Samsung or Nokia for that price? unless you just want a PDA with limited internet functionality?

I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

I want to use the phone on Vodafone.

I've also been thinking about the HTC Touch Diamond and HTC Touch Pro, because i want to have a keyboard, so the X610 and Touch Diamond aren't as interesting.

Mostly im having problems with buying things in NZ i can only find limited range, so i cannot find a X800...

I have the HTC Hero which is amazing. I had the Nokia E71 which was a great phone. I'm not big on Windows Mobile phones.

If your on contract with telecom, and you phone is under warranty still, tell them that you want a completely different phone and select the phone you want.

I personally love the Samsung GT - 8300 Ultra Touch phone. Its lasted me longer then the sony ones.
