    I'd like an smartphone, but I'm a tad blonde(!)

    Can anyone help please?

    I recently bought a t-mobile vibe phone and love the internet access I can get, but it's not like the actual internet. I can't buy anything on eBay using it, and a lot of sites just won't load - I'm guessing there not compatible?

    I don't mind spending a bit of cash, up to ~ £200, but don't really know what to get!

    Can I get an iPhone for that? I want to stay on PAYG and t-mob as that's the only network that'll get a signal in work.

    My hubby says a blackberry would be best but everything seems to be geared towards the iPhone.

    As if that wasn't enough, I would really like a QWERTY keypad.

    Obviously, I understand I can't have everything above. Is anyone techy enough to know what I'm gibbering on about and willing to point me in a nice direction?

    Pretty please?

    Blackberrys are known for having qwerty keyboards, but I think most of the touchscreen phones have a touchscreen qwerty keyboard too.

    You'll find it expensive to buy just a handset on PAYG. However, the HTC Wildfire is now available for around £100 and that does "proper" internet. If you want an iPhone, wait a few months until the iPhone 5 is available (January?) and then prices will drop on previous models.

    Everyone does an app for the iPhone first, but the Android app market is very close behind now. Also, you pay a premium just to have an iPhone - nothing to do with how good it is, just because it's an iPhone.
