    I'm looking for a new contract soon and considering one with 3.

    I know their reputation used to be pretty rubbish but a guy in Phones4U today told me that whenever the 3 network is unavailable it reverts to the O2 network, so is actually pretty good?


    Is this really the case?

    O2 supply the 2G network for Three if 3G isn't available I believe.

    OK, I think I have narrowed it down to the following, both work out at the same price:


    W800i on Flex35


    6280, 700mins, 250txts

    It looks like the 6280 has a better screen, which has the better camera?

    i did a little post about the 6280, build quality is horrible and the camera on the w800, even though both 2mp, takes better quality shots. Get the w800 imo, or if you can wait a week or 2 get the w810i....actually...wait that couple of weeks.
