Got a phonecall today from Vodafone offering me an upgrade to my phone (k800i), and the main phone the guy was offering was the Samsung Tocco F480. I haven't really kept up to date with the latest phones for a while, anyone got one of these or can recommend some decent phones to look at?
I've been with vodafone for years, but always tended to be on their minimum tariff which has always covered what I needed it for. I've thought about switching to PAYG, but I've always liked to have a newish phone, and it seemed to work out cheaper with a contract (£15/month) than paying through the teeth for a phone without one. In the past I have always phoned up Vodafone cancellations and bagged myself a decent deal to make it worthwhile, but this is the first time they have phoned me to offer an upgrade.
Thing is I don't tend to use many of the features on these phones, but am a bit of a sucker for wanting the latest trendy gadgets out there. I want a camera on it, but if I want to take a decent picture then i'll use my digital camera, so I'm not sold on how many megapixels it can offer, for example.
I have been keeping an eye on the new iPhone release, but I am not interested in some weighty monthly contract. Ideally I'd prefer to get the phone and just jailbreak it onto my current contract (which vodafone will reduce in price instead of taking a new phone), but then nobody seems to know yet if that will be possible with the new one.
The guy from vodafone obviously tried to sell this Samsung phone to me as being better than the iPhone. They want me to sign up to a new 18 month contract plus £50-75 for the phone, which I expect I can knock them down on.
I noticed there wasn't any mention of this phone in these forums already, so was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on it or other phones to look at?
