Basically, I had a phone, and I was hoping it would last until July next year. It broke last Thursday. Thus I am in the market for a new one, and AFAIK Telecom's new network is still only partially functional. I don't want to spead too much but I definitely want something that will not become hopelessly obsolete as soon as WCDMA etc does finish rolling out. Ironically, 95% of the people on my reasonably long contact's list are Telecom users, but a similar percentage of the handsets I like are Vodafone. I don't want to switch networks.
So I'm asking for recommendations as to what to buy. By all means, suggest importing something unlocked and getting a SIM for it of you think that's a good idea, I don't know enough. Anything over $400 or so probably won't be considered right now.
