Help! Do I change contracts or not!

Hi I currently have an Online simplicity 20 on which I get unlimited data. I've had this  for 5-6 years. I am currently on the lookout for a new phone, I normally buy my phones outright to go with this contract, but this time I don't no what to do, It probably would be cheaper to take out a new contract that includes a new phone with 1g data due the cost. But am so unsure if I should let the unlimited data contract go! Looking at getting either Samsung s4 or sony z1. 

 

anyone got any opinions that might help me decide?

Re: Help! Do I change contracts or not!

I too have unlimited data, and I'm holding onto it for as long as I can. My opinion is you should do the same. O2 are not likely to offer an unlimited data contract again. A new sim free phone will not be cheap, and it's a lot to lay out in one go, but it really does work out better in the long run. You're not tied to a lengthy contract, the phone will be unlocked, and if you keep it in good condition you can sell it for a reasonable price if you want to change phones. 4G coverage is rolling out slowly, but it's still in its infancy, and all the kinks haven't been worked out yet. 3G is still more reliable, and more available. At least for the moment, you should stick with what you've got.

Your current contract is certainly worth keeping Smiley Wink

I'll have your unlimited data and I'll buy you a phone !

Seriously keep your legacy unlimited data tariff.

I'd suggest going to the high street shops to have a go with the working demo models to get a feel for the phone and it's operating system.

Battery life, all much of a muchness with high end phones, you get through a day with them and then need a charge basically.

 

Camera - I would put them in this order:

 

5S

S3

Z1

 

Putting the Z1 at the end may seem surprising, but the firmware/hardware/whatever is just not right still so the pictures don't come out as well as they should!

 

Out of them all as well the 5S is the fastest and most responsive.

 

Android is VERY flexible, which can be both a positive and a negative.

 

Owned all of them, which would I keep? The 5S.
