N95 8GB on O2, where?

Hi,

I'm looking at getting an N95 8GB because my contract runs out in 5 days with O2. The trouble is I really like being with O2 and don't want to change networks because I find the customer service and network second to none.

But I have just been informed they won't be doing the 8GB at all. So what do I do? What other networks do the 8GB? Or is there a way of getting the 8GB on O2 through any other company?

You could do what I did. With my 6110.

Stay with 02 and get the contract you want.

Get the best phone possible.

Sell the phone.

Get the N95 8GB by other means.

Not ideal, but if you really dont want to leave 02 its possibly the best solution.

Yeah that's not a bad idea, I would get the N95 and swap it for the 8GB but unfortunately the N95s are going for around 260 and the 8GB for about 450 so that's nearly 200 difference! D'oh!

Yeah but chances are you would have to pay that anyway.

I havent looked at the 8GB version on any contracts, but I bet its not free unless you get a 50 + a month one.

I'd change network. I was on O2 before and had no problems with them but when I wanted the N95 and unlimited data they couldn't do either so I switched to T-Mobile. I have actually found them to be much better than O2 and you can, obviously, port your number

I'd just get the N95-1 and treat yourself to an 8Gb card!

I'm in the same situation, but not in a million years would I go to another network specially to Vodafone. I hate them, worst customer service ever

I'm patiently waiting for the N95-2 to come out on O2 in the new year (got my tariff down to the simplicity for the time being) O2 have been great to me, no complaints from me. T-mobile are ok but I have very bad signal with them at home.

Look at it this way.....if you get it from O2 then the phone will be unlocked and not branded like vodafone, orange etc along with some good deals.

Don't confuse those two though, unbranded and unlocked are very different things. Unlocked means you can use it on any network, with any sim card (No network will give you a phone in that state) while unbranded just means the firmware will not have any network-specific customisations.
Incidentally O2 do brand the firmware, it's just very minimal unlike the bloated themes of vosafone and orange. T-Mobile's is also very minimal, in fact just a different icon for the web browser app. And don't forget, it is VERY easy to switch to an unbranded firmware anyway

I'm happy with my N95 8GB on Vodaphone. The 3.5G is spectacular, and £7.50 for 120MB hours is better than the silly £3 a MB O2 charge.

Got my phone unlocked for an extra £30 so can use it with other SIMs abroad too.

Love this phone, but still feels a bit flimsy like the old N95.

Unlocked for 30? Have vodafone raised the unlocking prices, it was 20 last time I did it.
