Parish Notice - Phone Stolen

By the way, my Blackberry was stolen yesterday, so I have had to have the number barred. If anyone is trying to get hold of me and can't, that's the reason. I should get a new SIM card sometime today. Apparently a new handset is going to set me back £300!

And I have to admit I am feeling tempted to get an iPhone as well, something I had vowed never to do. But apparently there's a new one coming out soon, so I shall hold off on that idea.

Must have been a bad day for you. Sorry.

Sorry to hear about the theft. You might like to consider the HTC Desire as an alternative to the iPhone (it won the award last night)

A lot of phones these days allow you to remotely wipe all the data from your phone and bar calls from that sim... get a new phone like that.

Snap! Two weeks ago in Hammersmith. O2 were brilliant and transferred the number to a new SIM card in my old Iphone within 12 hours. The loss of the phone was a pain, but losing the number would have been a disaster. They also told me that my Iphone was insured. You may find your Blackberry is, even on home insurance.

The new iPhone is launched very shortly indeed. Treat yourself.

I wholeheartedly second hippo22's recommendation :)

MikeyP said...

Sorry about you Blackberry. However, Hippo22 is correct. The HTC Desire is a much nicer phone and easier to sync emails etc.

As hippo has said, if you're considering an iphone, it's definitely worthing having a look at the HTC Desire as an alternative. Personally I think the touch screen on this is more accurate. Seem to be better deals available on the HTC too and it doesn't have that stupid i in front of it's name ;-)

I've jsut gotten myself an HTC Desire and I can thoroughly recommend it. It was recommended to me too over the iphone! Glad I listened to them! :o)

I have a HTC Hero - far better than an iPhone....

I'm with all the commentators regarding the HTC Desire. Don't have one myself but have a HTC touch with the same operating system - Android, and it rocks!

IPhones are everywhere, go HTC that's my recommendation :)

Ian, another vote for an HTC / Android phone

Better and more flexible, open source, microSD.. etc

New Dell Wallet sized device looks good if you crave more inches on your screen...

anything with that snapdragon processor and Android.

You really should boycott Apple garbage. Android is the way to go.

David said...

Indeed - Android's the thing.

Google Nexus One - made by HTC (again).

Shortly with Android 2.2.

Display much better (higher resolution) than iPhone - so you can easily browse real newspaper websites (not the mobile versions), call quality much better as there is a noise cancelling microphone...

Yes I'm also a Linux bore too.

Entirely agree about HTC and other Android phones being the way to go.

I've had an HTC Hero for some time. It is an excellent phone. Much better than an iPhone, much cheaper and the apps are free or very low cost.

On a recent sailing holiday in remote parts of Scotland, where there were no wifi hotspots, I had complete access to the internet, email, Twitter, GPS mapping etc.

But it's not trendy. It doesn't promote phone envy in others. Functionality or style? Geek or poseur? The choice is yours.

It's an HTC for me too Iain - get with the 'in' crowd!

Anita Mathias said...

An iphone, an iphone. They are brilliant.

Wait for new Dell handheld, better than either HTC smartphone or i-phone.

Until then, stick the sim in any old phone - if you absolutely MUST have a blackberry, ask around new MPs, all of whom got one from the whips and may have their old one's going spare.

Your hom einsurance also should cover your phone.
