I'd suggest avoiding the Skypephone and go for a popular well known 
brand such as the Nokia phones.  I was shocked to read that the failure 
rate of the Skypephone is rather high (and that was on the 
3skypephone.com forums.  My experience might be just limited to the poor 
staff in the store.  I found the Zavvi store to be much more helpful 
when I went to get a Virgin Mobile phone as a replacement (sadly they 
don't offer mobile broadband at the moment and their data rates are £4 
per meg!!!).
