Hope you can all help me out a bit here folks. I'm almost at the end of my 18 month contract on 3 in the UK, getting sick of them and my phone (k800), so the inevitable gear acquisition syndrome is kicking in. I've done a few calculations on what I can theoretically afford so I knew my options. I'm starting to need a new music player too, so thats an aspect in choosing a phone. I'm going between the sony ericsson C905, Nokia N96 and the iphone. First two would almost certainly be on 3 because of the price they can offer, and i might be able to haggle them a bit as im already a customer. Has anyone had any success in the UK of getting O2 stores to reduce the contract price a bit, or the cost of the actual phone. If I can get either the £35 contract down a bit or a very discounted phone then I can see myself affording it. So yeah, give me your guidance.
