    After getting my 3 contract with a LG U880 I am undecided on what Nokia to replace it with...

    N70

    or

    6280

    Not looking to spend more than £150 (both of these phones can be bought on eBay for around that price)... and it has to be a Nokia.

    Any suggestions please :)

    The 3 dealer I got my contract from charged too much for any Nokia compared to the LG U880 I got with it... so I decided to buy it separetly afterwards.

    I have heard that the N70 can be too slow at times. I don't really have any need for lots of programs etc... if it does what the 6230i does at good speeds then its great for me :)

    well ive got the n70 with the latest generic nokia software v5.0609.2.0.1 and it works fine, its got a 512 mb card with tom tom and loads of pics and videos on it and works fast, also has 720 inbox tex messages stores on the mem card, though i will be getting the n80 soonish so i may have to sell this though ive not heard good things about the n80, ive heard the browser is post to be good too

    Well, except it isn't. It's actually more like a 3G 6230i with a sliding case... Not running Symbian S60 means less ram is actually needed to.

    Still wouldn't have one, mind.

    Just spoke to a mate who works at Vodaphone and he said that the 6280 may look nice but it can break very easily... and for a student who goes out and gets drunk fairly often, maybe this is not the best option for me...
