Default Tempting Phones 4u offer...

HTC Sensation 20 Contract

Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forum as I'm currently due to upgrade my phone, and am moving from an iphone to android. After checking out some stuff online I've settled on the Sensation as my next phone and came across this deal from Phones 4 U which is definitely the best price I've seen online.

Never dealt with Phones 4 U before so was wondering if anyone could offer some feedback as to how good they are customer service wise? And also, I'm not sure how the whole update process goes for android.. would any future updates depend on Phones 4 U to release or would it be Orange? (my current network)

250MB of data is not much with this phone. Sense seems to use a lot of data. Just be careful to check what happens if you exceed it.

Assuming it's an Orange branded phone, updates would need to be approved by Orange before you get them.

thanks, forgot about how sense might eat that up... currently on 500MB and never really gone over 200mb but guess with sense it might just

Not sure if it'd be orange branded though, they've yet to release it on their own website (still says "coming soon") so hoping it'd be an unbranded version

If the phone is coming from phones4u or carphone warehouse the phone is unbranded so will receive updates without going through your carrier first.

unfortunately not. my Desire is jam packed full of Orange bloatware that I have never used and just eats up the internal memory.
