Thread: Time for an upgrade.

  1. #1

    Default Time for an upgrade.

    Hi,

    I currently have a Talk75S contract (about R189pm).
    I also just canceled my Vodacom mygig2 (from end of June, about R149pm).
    Gives me around R340pm to play with.

    What Android phone would you suggest I get?

    I can go a little over that but don't really want to as I know that patching data to it will add some extra monthly costs and would in fact prefer to keep the total at around R340.

    Anyone seen any good specials lately?

    Thanks

    I was looking at the Galaxy S2.
    Game have it on special for R380 (A Galaxy S2 and a galaxy Y for R380) but as I said I would really like to stay within budget with a data bundle patched on.
    Vodacom have the same phone for R299 including a 250meg bundle.

    Yup thats on a straight Business Call package, so no free minutes (also available through us )

    Same would apply to the Sony Xperia S (better specs and 12MP camera which is awesome).

    The Moto Razr @ R269 on Business with 250MB data

    Well I just checked the tracking number on the RAM website (Vodacom do not mention the courier they use in any of there communication and I found out quite by chance that it is RAM).

    It is out for delivery today

    Review will come on Monday, I will try do this in conjunction with a few other phones, not for speed tests as there are plenty on the web but for communication and data transfer compatibility.
