Yes I'm behind the times with my 025 nokia 8260 so i need an upgrade.
Heres what i would like:
mp3 player/storage (256mb+)
camera (1mp+)
Would like it to be able to store data not just mp3s eg. files from pc to work pc but if this brings up the cost to much would just look at the options without this.
I've listed this under telecom but am not adverse to the other networks.

Saw the samsung a920 the other day but dont know what the quality is like as previously only had nokias and 1 ericson (way back).

Any help would be great thanks.

Edit: Oh and prefer non-flip phones as i think they look more professional. but that doesnt mean i wouldnt consider flip ones like the a920 etc.

Hi welcome to Geekzone.

The Nokia 6265 is a non flip, its a slider. Very good phone, I have one and nobody could pry it from my fingers...ever.
It has bluetooth, 2MP camera, 64 mini SD card but upgradeable to 2Gb. MP3 player and sync with Outlook.

I sometime use the phone as storage when transporting files. Quite handy. Its not the cheapest phone aroound but it is worth the pricetag.

Anything else, just ask.

6265 is a good choice, good phone, nice clear screen, and good for playing music etc (I currenty have mine set up with my Boose Home Theater System =)). Bluetooth is great as well, easy to TXT from, good voice quality, ring etc.

As Brad says "I have one and nobody could pry it from my fingers...ever"

Best of luck

Samsung A920 is a great phone also.

1.3 Megapixel camera, awesome price.
Also has Bluetooth.

There are package accessaries from time to time availible on this phone which are pretty cool.

Uses MicroSD.... so expandable memory for that MP# player... If you want a flip phone this is a pretty well priced handset for the availible features

Actually checked out the nokia 6265 and didnt like the whole feel of it. But thanks for the suggestions

So another question would be "is there much of a quality change between brands eg. nokia, samsung, sanyo etc

*itsover* FYI the free Nokia Phone is only given to 'selected customers', and prepaid customers can upgrade for a discount of the RRP from the Nokia 2280 OR 6015.
