After twelve years with Orange, I’ve finally had enough and switched my phone provider. Yesterday my mobile number was ported to O2.
Of course, a new phone provider means a new contract. And a new contract means a new phone. What I really wanted was a Nokia N95, but on the contract I’ve got that would have cost two hundred pounds. And paying for a mobile phone just seems wrong.
So I chose a Motorola KRZR which is similar to the RAZR, but narrower. I’ve only been using it for a day or so, and it’s so completely different to my old Nokia N91 that it’s taking some getting used to. I’ll give it a couple of weeks though. In the worst case, I can always just put the SIM into the old phone.
One major disappointment already. There isn’t yet a version of Shozu available for the KRZR. And a cameraphone without Shozu is a disaster. Hopefully they’re working on it and will release it before too long.
I will, of course, let you know how it goes.
