I just bought an N95 8GB on T-Mobile

So, I went through a spate of mobile purchasing last night. The iPhone, yeah. And then T-Mobile.

Well, I feel it is my mobile-industry duty to have a handset on every network. I’ve got the UK covered and I have a dormant $10/month Sprint account in the States, too. (Since they’re CDMA, their devices obviously don’t work in the UK.)

I headed over to my T-Mobile account and clicked on the ‘upgrade me’ link. I played around in my mind with buying a Windows Mobile device… then I clicked on the N95 8GB.

There was a ‘confirm’ button.

I pressed it to see what would happen.

“Thank you, your order is being processed!”

Shit!

Woops.

So. Right. I, er, have a new phone. And, presumably a new contract will come into force when I accept it.

Although at no point was I explicitly advised on this. That’s a bit spooky. I don’t know if I’ve signed up to an 18-month, a 12-month or a 24-month stonker.

I suspect I shall find out by reading the delivery note that arrives with the handset.

  1. Can't speak for T-Mobile but, S60 foibles and blind spots aside, I reckon the N95 8GB is about the best workhorse around right now – made perfect by a copy of Profimail.

  2. Meh.. I'm still not sure if the 8Gb is better – I do like being able to take the memory card out and put it in the card reader. But still you won't be disappointed.

  3. I know what you mean, Kip. It's not perfect but it's nothing that a USB cable (or even a bluetooth connection) doesn't solve. Just backup regularly!

  4. ah ok – im still toying between an N96 or E71 as my next nokia
    under the assumption that 5800 wont be here until xmas at the soonest
    plus first gen S60 5th edition should probably be avoided.

    then that samsung IMIT8 is tempting too.

  5. the n95 8gb is nice – but as the n96 is about to drop, i would hold out for that. sure its not much better, but its the latest and greatest. i dont give a fig about 3d – nokia arent using it for n-gage anyway. also i've yet to find an n-gage game i want to buy.
