Default getting a curve in the uk, wondering which network to go on

Please Login to Remove!

Well, im getting a curve for myself on wednesday, and all the networks have good coverage in my home area, and in the area i go to uni.

As i said, i am in the UK and will be using the curve for the following:
sending email from my gmail address
sending IMs through windows live(msn)
sending texts
making the occassional call
i dont need to download huge files, but i would like to be able to browse the internet occasionally

i was wondering if someone could suggest a network, and also any extra things i might need (im new to all this phone stuff!)

also - does the curve have a space for a little phone charm to be put on it?

cheers to all!

Since coverage is not an issue you could now move on to researching prices for plans. Whichever one gives you the best price I might recommend. Also ask some of your friends about their customer service experiences with the different carriers.

I'm with Orange and their data plans are not good, I would recommend O2 or Vodafone.

o2 definately. I'm on the unlimited data plan, but if you are taking a text and call plan you can get unlimited data added on for an extra 7.50 per month.
