Due an upgrade soon though........Nokia N97 32GB it is then!

Have you tried emulation on yours? I used to have a SNES, NES, mame and MSX emulators on my E71 and the N95 is the same OS so should be able to run them, but tbh I haven't tried yet despite having downloaded loads of stuff for it...

Ditto.

Mine is pay and go, but my free unlimited internet runs out in a few weeks so may end up going on contract.

Another iPhone here. I'm no fanboy, I've never even owned an iPod before getting this, but it's bloody brilliant. A true swiss army knife of a gadget, it's jailbroken too so now it's groaning with apps and tunes. Retro wise I've got a SNES emulator on it, and SCUMMVM, which was great on holiday when we had no telly; plus internet radio, iPod, roaming internet, facebook, ability to buy music and apps remotely, great games like Taxiball, isotope, JellyCar, Ragdoll Blaster, Papertoss, Flight Control, Tiki, Sky+ remote recording, Google Earth, Starmaps, email, a decent camera, traffic accident reports...

It does phone stuff too.

Nokia 6700

Its the first phone ive had in a while that I REALLY like. Not the newest handset by any means but its got everything I want. Mp3, decent camera, easy to use and its nice and heavy.

My girlfriend gave me one of her new ones, some flash Samsung touchscreen affair but I tried it and I just couldnt get to grips with the damn thing so got this one when my contract was up for renewal.

I have a samsung tocco on contract, £30pm, but as soon as my term is up I'm cancelling - I probably use less than £5 on calls and texts.

An unlocked Sony K800i. It has a decent camera, plays mp3s and videos, easy to make calls and text and has a decent battery life and coverage. Not the best phone on the market, granted, but does me fine.

The Nokia N-gage is a great gaming phone. Loads of emus and games are available for it and can be picked up for next to nothing.

K800i here too.

I had a Mitsubishi Trium for a long while, then a Siemens A50, then a K750i. Been on and off contract, now have a contract phone but on simplicity, which works out cheaper than Payg for me.

My K800 is indestructable! having been dropped on concrete,submerged and gawd knows what else. No cracked screen, no white screen of death that blights many Sony phones... Its awesome.. only just got round to using it as my portable music system of choice as me CD player has packed up :(

Samsung G600, it's quite a nice little phone! Mainly use it as an MP3 player than anything else. :)

I have a Samsung D900i, probably the most reliable phone I've ever hand (well, most reliable modern phone)
The phone is small, but the buttons are not stupidly small so I can press them easily enough. The battery life is decent and it looks pretty cool.
