    I currently have a 30g video Ipod and a MDA Vario phone on Tmobile.

    I don't really want to change provider as I dont really like o2.

    I was looking at the 16g touch as it has wifi and net access on.

    Then when my phone contract runs out I can get a phone that does just text/talk and email.

    Any advice would be brilliant.

    Kind of depends on how many devices you want to carry around with you. Personally, I hate carrying around a bunch of stuff and I love the idea of a single device that does (nearly) everything. I got an iPhone.

    If you're female and have a purse to carry around (or a man with a man-bag), and don't particularly care about having only one device, what the hell -just stick with what you've got!

    I went the two device route.

    I jail broke my iPod Touch and haven't looked back. Full Safari, Calendar, Mail, some games, etc.

    It's worked out great. I didn't want to sign a two year contract and the touch is thinner.

    Just my $.02 (or roughly £.009)

    Sounds like you've more or less already made up your mind. They say your first gut reaction is usually the best one, so go with that. If you don't want to switch providers to O2 then stick with what you have and get an iPod Touch.

    I think I will got for the Itouch and just get a phone that is smaller when my contract expires.

    Roll on the weekend.

    Pure :D

    That is the same conclusion I had :

    Get the 16gb touch and [getting a new] a smaller phone that can easily carried in my pocket.

    I always have a bag on me mind you so I also carry a decent camera also - I have always wanted one device, but it will never substitute the quality of individual products.

    I would get an iPhone because carrying two devices instead of one is pointless.

    I would get the iPod Touch because the monthly bill for the iPhone is way to much for me.
