I live in the UK. Last October I went into a store to get myself an iphone.... however, I was talked out of it, and in a moment of stupidity, I purchased the Omnia. Its not a bad phone, and it does everything I can think of, but it doesnt have the apps, or usability of the iphone. And with an Iphone, i could get rid of my ipod, and have an all in one device, so to speak. I have another 8 or so months left on my orange contract, but i'd like an iphone now to be honest... seems like a good time to buy. I dont want to buy an iphone, and have 2 contracts running at the same time for the next 8 months however :/ Is there anyone who has been in the same boat, who found a quick way to getting an iphone?
