Mobile Phone

I need a new mobile phone.

Neither of the phones I currently have work properly, and the network I'm currently on (Three) is pathetic and I need to change.

Currently I'm looking at switching to Optus, and I'm definitely switch back to a Nokia. My current thought is the Nokia E65 which I can get on the $49 cap for $1.

I'm currently paying $50 a month with Three ($29 cap plus $6 for unlimited email and news (which I don't use anyway) plus $15 phone repayments) so that isn't any different in costs, but it gives me a massive $300 worth of calls instead of my current $79.

So, anyone have any suggestions on networks or phones? I am definitely switching off Three, I am definitely going with a Nokia, and I'd like to not pay anything more than I currently am.

I will be going back to Vodafone the moment my current Three contract is over. The Three service sucks and their accounts department sucks like a singularity. None of the things I changed to them for actually work either - their SMS service has been known to lose messages for days at a time.

I *never* had a problem with Vodafone. And they support the Blackberry, which means that I can get the email from my normal accounts with no dramas at all.

I recently bought a Nokia 6300 and am very happy with its operation.

I must profess my undying love for Vodafone. I've had I believe one single problem with them, and I've been with them for seven years (well, two if you count the time I double paid a bill, but that was totally my fault). And they were amazingly polite when I did have that problem. Their customer service is just amazing--I've even had two staff members go totally out of their way for me which I'd never have expected--their phones are generally of good quality (I say generally because I was a fool and got a Panasonic once, but I'm back to Nokia now!), and they're just lovely. And unless you live down a well with no phone towers--or, I presume, in the middle of nowhere but I don't know too much about the country--their coverage is rocking. Far, far better than Three's.

That said, it looks like the cap you've mentioned is better than Vodafone's similar cap. Still, I love them, and I cannot believe I've been with the same company since I was 17 and don't hate them.

I am with Optus on a similar plan to the one you are considering and its fabulous. I unfortunately fell for the "oh we dont have any of the nokias in stock so how about this shiney panasonic one". Panasonic phones = teh suck. Optus + Nokia = love.

Nokia 6110 - cause it's a slide-phone not a flip-phone like so many others have.

Telstra - I only pay for calls because I own the phone. Inquire about their plans because it's been a long time since I was on a plan.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
