A few months ago I decided to buy my daughter a new mobile phone. She had been using the Samsung Jet but her love of Twitter revealed the Jet to be lacking somewhat when it came to surfing the internet. My daughter rarely uses her phone to make calls, preferring to text or surf the web with it...

I’ve used quite a few mobile phones over the years, starting with those ones that were the size of a house brick and you had to carry the battery around with you in a rucksack, or in a side car. So it’s nice to see that these mobile phones are not only getting smaller but are getting much more...

When it came to changing my contract and phone last year, I had no idea what I wanted.

I wanted to upgrade my phone last month and I was shocked, though I don't really know why, at how quickly phones seem to go outdated and are replaced by their 'newer version'. There are so many to choose from, and numerous tariffs you get hassled in to signing up to, that it's hard to decide...

I had this phone recently for about 3 weeks, and although it is a great phone for the price, if you are a phone fanatic and enjoy the luxuries of a fast phone with a great camera and a slick feel, then this probably isn’t the one for you.
