I currently own a ZTE Crescent which I've had for just under a year, my parents have offered to get me a pay-monthly contract which is around the same price as what I pay for my Three Sim Only contract (£12.90- 5000 texts, 200minutes and All-You-Can-Eat data). I've been looking online for the deals between £7.50-£15.50 and I'm wondering what you guys would recommend.
I just want a upgrade really, something a bit better than my Crescent, and hopefully has a decent development community, but it's not essential. I need to have a decent amount of texts (At least 3000), having plenty of data would be great but I'm not hopeful so I'd settle for anything really, and i don't really care about minutes (50 or so would do me).
I'd love to get the G300 on contract but I can't find it anywhere in the UK on contract.
So far here are my options;
HTC Desire C
Nokia Lumia 610
Sony Xperia U
Orange San Diego
Sony Xperia Tipo
Nokia Lumia 710
Samsung Galaxy Ace II (Not a very good contract)
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S (Again, not a very good contract)
Please bear in mind that I live in the United Kingdom so I need to find a UK-based contract so I can't use any foreign networks.
