new phone

hey ppl,
            iam contemplating getting a new phone but i have like 4 phones on my mind and i don't know which route to go. Some of them were out of my budget but since iam working for vodafone now iam getting an employee discount. My needs are simple calls,sms,email, music and a decent cam.

here is what i have on mind: I phone 3GS , Nokia 5800 express music, HTC magic, HTC touch pro 2

what do u think?

    Firstly , the odd one out in those four is the 5800   -  not a bad device , but nowhere near the others 

        I'd then hold them in the following order 

         1 ) iPhoine 3GS 
         2) HTC Magic 
         3) HTC Touch Pro II 
          
              Personally would not bother with the Touch Pro II , but it s probably the best Windows mobile device to date , so if it floats your boat !

    deffo once you get an Iphone youll hate it for a month,then youll never go back to any other phone

    Everyone has been in shape,but not everyone is IN shape,its about where your going not where you have been.

    As above: Iphone 3Gs. Texting is a little bit awkward, but it's a good bit of kit. Mine is white.

    This may sound like a daft question, but how is a vodafone staff discount going to help with buying an iPhone? Unless of course you get a cheap monthly deal to offset buying a PAYG iPhone and then jailbreak it.

    White iPhone > everything else.

    I absolutely love my iphone, I love having the internet in my pocket... the apps are pretty cool and over and above all of that it's a good phone! I find texting really easy and quick and the clarity of the phone calls is superb, feels like you're talking on a land line.

      White ones are cool  , I am glad I held out for white , makes me feel a bit special  
       
        Just thought I'd mention ,rumour has it that the iPhone 3G 8GB  (not the 3GS , the 3G )  is about to be available on other networks according to rumours  (T-mobile and Orange)   -   This would be great for pricing as some kind of competition mght occour  
            ....  OK so the 3GS is better,  but the iPhone 3G is still a great phone !

    because here in egypt vodafone is the sole retailer of the iphone along with our competitor network mobinil, and as a part of the employees benefit plan we get dicounts on any products we sell. plus things work differently here than in uk regarding phones and sim cards.

      Unfortunately you won't get to use the GPS in Egypt  -  but thats not really Apple's fault !
