My (biased :D) advice would be to forget the latest symbian S60 phones as nobody has the required software to unlock them (only network operators can) and go with Windows Mobile :P I have had a C550 and found it to be a good phone, however having said that you can buy a C600 with WM5 for around ?150 new i think?

The two OS' work in very very different ways. If you are familiar with Nokia phones you may find the 6680 much easier to 'get with'. Personally I prefer the Windows interface, but it is much more text heavy than Symbian which some people find offputting.

If you don't like really getting to know your phone the 6680 is probably the safe bet. If you are a bit of a geek then the C550 gives you a lot of possibilities.

Well with the disclaimer that I've only been using my C550 extensively on T-mobile...

The C550 is mostly an excellent handset which I use to play audio and video frequently. It has a very nice QVGA display.

Some (all?) of these have problems reconnecting to GPRS. If the GPRS connection goes idle, times out or it just feels like it it will stop responding to data requests. The only way to get it to respond again is to power cycle the thing or switch into and out of flight mode.

I make heavy use of GPRS and sometimes have to do this a dozen or more times a day. I fell like stamping on it sometimes :)

YMMV: this might just be a T-mobile issue.

On the subject of GPRS it doesn't have a build in data counter. A major omission but you can buy third party counters.

I did use an S60 device (the old N-gage) on Orange. I was largely happy with it until I hit a hideous bug. If you fill up its internal memory it wouldn't power up and needed to be sent to a service centre to reset. Apparently newer S60s don't have this problem.
