    Think it's supposed to be across in 4 Business Hours. Not sure if Sunday counts.

    I have the iPhone 5. Had the 4. Love them. Just bear in mind the new iPhone came out end of September last year so if you are going for one maybe hold on for the new one?
    There is no emoticon for what I am feeling.

    I've the 5 as well- love it more than my wife and kids.

    Friends with Samsungs and HTC's love theirs equally - there is some resentment out there toward apple products- some people say the Samsungs are faster, better screen/camera and allows flash etc.

    personally i dont care and if apple released a fruit basket i'd probably buy their one - i'm a bit of a logo junkie on this!

    I think the Iphone is pretty much perfect. Agree that some of the newer phones are a bit too big. They're all deadly though, you won't go wrong with any of them and anyone who says one is shit is probably an attention seeking spa

    I'm always amazed Nokia never managed to get the Smart Phone correct- 10 years ago they were probably the biggest phone manufacturer, but have fallen some way behind Samsung, HTC and Apple.

    They refuse to use Android, still convinced Windows phones will take over. Rumours they might be reconsidering that opinion soon though

    Got the Huawei Honor for Christmas. Most amazing phone I've ever had. Somehow managed to download the wrong android update onto it and made an arse of it. Found out then it's not available in Ireland even though I bought it off an Irish website so there was no support and it couldn't be fixed. Would really recommend the Huawei brand though. Absolutely quality phones.

    The Y300 is on Meteor, not the G510 (which is a far better phone) Huawei definitely starting to make some excellent phones alright



    Am using the HTC 8S myself, love it. Definitely prefer the Windows platform

    Just delete the 1200 imaginary 'friends' and leave the real ones there.

    legend of a taxi driver got in touch with me and gave me my iphone back. can't help thinking if he was irish i wouldnt have got it back

    got my thinking about getting phone insurance. its 12.99 a month, do many have their phoness insured ?
    Also, lets say.....someone had insurance and claimed that their iPhone was robbed/lost, and claimed a new one.....will they get shut down the old one ? (think this is only possibly on iPhones)

    gadgetinsurance.com seem to be half the price of chill.ie and others for the same policy.....odd

    I know a lad who claimed on it just to see what happened. He got told to get a garda report, which he did easily enough. Then got a newer version of his "stolen" iphone sent out. May have had to pay an extra 20 quid I think? Then he sold his old one because they didnt block it. No harm in trying it.

    Might want to point out that it is actually insurance fraud. Do it / don't do it I don't care, but be aware that it is.

    FWIW, I have my phone (and the missus's) covered on my house insurance, didn't cost me anything extra.

    If you claim does it effect your no claim bonus?

    I would imagine so, as it would if you claimed on the gadget insurance.

    Looking for a phone around the €200 mark, and thinking of getting a Sony Experia J, anyone have one or recommend? Would use for apps/internet rather than music/camera.

    I got the Huawei Ascend G510 a few weeks ago, for 150.

    Only issue is when coming out of apps back to homescreens the screen goes blank, but after a second the icons appear again, other than that, does the job.
