Default General advice

Hi all. I'm in the UK, on Orange, and considering getting a contract phone for my partner.

We want something midrange - better in capability and screen resolution than the cheapest stuff like HTC wildfire (around 15 a month) - but cheaper than the new top range phones which are all 30+. The Ray seems to fit the bill nicely, around 20 a month and mostly great reviews.

One thing that bothered me was the onboard keyboard... several reviews saying it's too fiddly and that it doesn't switch to landscape mode. Surely that's not correct?

Any general advice on this phone appreciated, thanks!
