    I would love to upgrade to another HTC phone, however current att lineup for year end doesn't have me very hopeful. Since I've been with att for two years already, I may be able to snag a HOX+ for 40 dollars, when it comes out.

    While I am dissapointed in HTC for not updating the Dhd as promised, I still prefer their hardware and HTC sense.

    Might be a snag though. My carrier historically allows us to get a new unit 6 months before the end of the contract, provided you sign up for another 2 years. When I get a phone sometime in the last 6 months, I wait till there is a unit I want. Was talking to my carrier representative and they are dropping early retention. Might delay replacement by a few more months (from January to April). Oh no.

    I would probably have to buy my next phone ( £300+) or wait till I'm old enough for a contract :-(

    It's a cross we all have to bear! ;)

    I can't justify paying for a phone outright, so have to get mine on a contract... I'm due an upgrade in March (I think), but money's a bit tight at the moment, so I may have to stick with my DHD for a little longer than 2 years!

    A year and a half cross to bare!!

    I guess I could afford one if the Nexus 4 is cheap / I can get my hands on a good Galaxy Nexus...

    I now have a Samsung SIII i9300. It hasn't docked me around or promised more than it delivered (camera and battery life). I can also exchange battery if needed.

    MAybe I will leave Samsung after this phone for Apple (unlikely/boring) or Windows (unlikely/blah). But Like I fleet footed from Nokia before, Now I race from HTC - thanks for not upgrading my phone Bi-atches!

    :confused: Do you mean contracts have to last a year and a half? Mine was 2 years or do you mean that you can't get your own contract for a year and a half?

    I'd love to get one of the Nexus phones... they're not usually cheap to buy outright though, I'm afraid... or not cheap enough for me!! :(

    A new phone would be nice to have though it's not really for the new features or official updates. I am not a power user so 1.2 GHz and 768 MB is more than enough to keep me happy. It's more, that a new toy brings new experiences.

    Longer battery life would be very welcome though.

    The nexus 4 is relatively cheap considering the specs etc.

    Is that a sim only plan?

    Less than £300 is not bad, but as my 32GB sd is practically full, I'd probably need something with more space.

    If you have unlimited data though, you would be able to store everything online :)

    Yeah, but HSPA.... If it was 4G I'd mind less.... Also battery life? I don't even know if that's a good enough excuse really.

    Personally, I prefer cloud storage. No more synchronizing devices.

    I do like a bit of Dropbox. :)

    So storage wouldn't be too much of a problem... But I still probably won't be allowed it :-(

    So there I was in town and I thought, 'I'm due an upgrade. Let's go and find out what I can get '. Easy right? Hmmm. Went into the Vodafone shop first (I'm in the UK) as that's the carrier I'm with. Waited a bit (staff were all busy) but walked out when noone came free. Went into a Phones4U shop and spoke to a young chap. Was asking about the S3 as that's what I'd like. He said, 16GB version for

    These phone "experts" in phone shops are anything but.

    Most of us here could school them on phones, OS's, accessories, the lot. They're just there to sell phones with con deals to people who know nothing about phones imo.

    Anyways, it's always cheaper to get your phone and contract direct over the phone or online in my experience, cuts out the experts in the phone shops commission.

    I agree. I could easily out geek them. Although technically I am a nerd
