Summary

Vicki in the Three store was a worthy winner: very knowledgeable and with good customer service skills, too.

O2 was also strong, but the tariff was not quite as good as Three’s offering.

In Vodafone the 555 was a good, cheaper alternative to the HTC ChaCha, but I was disappointed I could not try the phone out instore.

I understood why Carphone Warehouse made its recommendation, but there was a handset available that better met my needs, which Irfan failed to mention. Although Craig in the Virgin store was polite, I felt I needed to be a Virgin customer to get a decent deal.
