    It's like a Pocket PC, and the HSDPA gives it mobile broadband ... great for geeks [​IMG] lol

    It means you can have mobile broadband internet access on your phone, or whatever .. they make laptops and stuff that take HSDPA sims now, too.

    Just like a regular phone sim, but with a broadband fast connection.

    Does it cost extra to use this feature like GPRS does?

    You buy a broadband top-up ... the higher the top-up, the more net time you get for the next 30 days ... £15 top-up will get you about 100 hours, for example ... still works like a normal phone, too.

    Really fast download speeds, too, for a phone ... up to 7meg, depending on the provider and the phone ... and, if the phone can take a memory card ... they usually can nowadays, you can do a lot with it ... like torrenting on the go [​IMG]

    It's at least worth checking out.

    Save your money and just borrow people's phones.

    There is no "best phone".

    Explain what your needs are, what features you're looking for etc, and maybe you will receive a more relevant answer.

    The Samsung F700 isn't a great choice regardless. The iPhone simply outclasses the F700, and at a lower price point. If you WiMo, or prefer something with a physical keyboard, the TyTNII would be better as well.

    mentally make a list of your priorities and start with popular phones. They always hit certain spots and miss others.
