    I dont know much about the lite one, but one of my friends had the original Tocco, and the 3, 6 and 9 buttons broke on the messaging so she couldn't write texts out properly.... she got it in October and it broke about 2 months ago :/

    I've got a Samsung Omnia (also a touch screen) and I hate it. I just hate the touchscreen, it's annoying, it always selects the wrong letter, even though I know i've pressed the right one, you can't see a thing when the sun shines on it and it only vibrates for phone calls.... nothing for text messages so i'm constantly checking my phone for texts :(

    It's going on eBay very soon and i'm getting some good old buttons back LOL

    I have both the Samsung Tocco & the Tocco Ultra. Have the Tocco since X-mas & it's still working perfectly. Only have the Tocco Ultra since around May & it's fine so far!! What's the difference between the Lite & the other ones?

    Samsungs are really good phones, its a shame there isn't a sliding keypad or anything on mine... i'll never own a touch screen again in my life, I look at my phone with disgust every time it comes out of my pocket LOL

    ...oh, and another thing I hate about my phone!! When I get a message, a little box pops up on the screen saying who it's from and what time it was sent, but when I press it... it just moves somewhere else on the screen! It's like my phone is going "ner ner :001_tt2:" at me whenever I get a text :cursing: :cursing: it's lucky it hasn't gone in the bloomin bin LOL

    Sounds like the Tocco Ultra is the one you should have. It has a touch screen, but also a keypad. The camera is great on it too!! I took some great pics of the sun setting at the beach the other day & they're so clear, I'm actually thinking of getting one of them blown up & framed for my new house.. There's not much of a difference between the original Tocco & the Ultra, but the keypad makes it easier for texting sometimes & the camera is much better.

    It's the Tocco lite that i actually want though :(

    Someone at the carphone warehouse said it was £100 and now it's £119 with £10 airtime on O2 :( Every other network, it's £100!

    Lol!! My sister got the Tocco - I know loads of people at work who have it & love it, I was going to get one, but had a go at hers first & was I glad I didn't get one! The touchscreen for texts drove me insane. I'm out of contract & trying to decide what to get next. I love Samsungs but not that keen on any of the ones out at the mo. I need one with a good camera - use it loads for taking quick pics of my cats - my phone is always to hand, but by the time I've got my ordinary camera out, they've long gone, lol :cursing:
