Hello :)

Well i have been looking online looking at reviews and what not trying to decide which phone would be better for my needs: Okta Touch or the Boss?

Would you helpful people on geekzone please be able to help me out as to which one has the edge?

I know that on the Touch you cant send/recieve Pxts o that is abit of a bother.

I am only 18, 7th form in my last year of college so i wouldnt be using it for any business like activities.

If someone with experiences with either/or even both of these phones could please help me out then that would be extra great

If you require anymore information please ask so i can help u 2 help me :)

Thanks in advance :)

I also have another question.

Is it only the touch and boss that have video capability with a 2.0MP camera or do any of the other agents also have a 2.0MP camera with video capability (ie record videos)

All info is greatly appreciated really - cheers.

I am also trying to make this decision. I also have another question, has anyone found a way to activate the Wifi on the Okta Touch, because this is the only thing preventing me from choosing it, that and it's txt-unfriendly interface, but mainly the Wifi.

out of the two, I would say the boss, as it has keyboard, I would wait what Telecom brings out as far as GSM devices go.

Hi people! I have another question about the Okta Touch.

I have read on sites and here on geekzone that you cannot put the Okta Touch on Prepay. However if i was to buy the phone 2nd hand (eg off trade me) would i then be able to put it on prepay? Because all i would have to do is ring telecom/go into a store and get my number connected - am i right or wrong?

Also following from that question if i was to go into the telcom shop and buy an okta touch, do i HAVE TO get a plan there? Like do they ask you what plan you want to go on etc etc? Sorry its just that i dont want to put this phone on a Plan

I dont want the phone to go onto a plan because i wont be using it for any Data like activities, only the usaul:txting,pxting, video etc no going on the net.

Thanks for all your help :)

No, no pre-pay, period, and yes you have to use one of their plans.

Also, no pix'ting on the Touch either.

ALso, the telecom plans for mobile internet and phone/txt are seperate.
