My old phone has been getting steadily more frustrating to use as its joystick has been dieing a slow death. This happened to it before and I got the joystick replaced under warranty, but it's more then 2 years old now and no longer covered.
I've been on a SIM only Vodafone contact for the last while, so I wondered into town to see if I could get any kind of deal, and wa-hay, in return for signing up for 18 months at almost the same monthly cost I've got a shiny new phone with that killer feature - a D-Pad instead of a Joystick. I have high hopes of longevity from this handset (my last two phones have been replaced mainly due to dead joysticks).
