MessagePlease note the change of subject heading to reflect my focus here, 
which is, what phones will run Talx now;  and what's the position with the 
various networks and provision of Talx capable phones on Pay AS you Go or 
contract?  All this arises of course out of the Wild Fire being put out, so 
Orange customers are naturally interested in the alternatives.

  I'm pretty sure this isn't an option with Virgin mobile.  With my experience 
of making enquiries about joining Virgin and, explaining that I couldn't sign 
up straight away and buy one of their selected phones due to the talx issue.  

  They seem to understand what I meant when I mentioned the talx software.  
HOwever, if they did sell any phones with talx put on them, they'd have said 
I've no doubt.

  I think only Vodafone are the ones that offer talx ready phones.  Orange seem 
clued up on with the talx software, having spoken about it with their customer 
service on several occasions and, at the Orange shop.  

  If you wanna go with one particular network and don't want vodafone, you'll 
have to buy talx separately from your phone.

    Can anyone else clarify what the situation with the various networks and 
Talx is?  I'm thinking of getting a phone with Talx and I'm not sure what the 
best deal is at the moment.  Is it better to buy Talx separately, or can you 
get it as part of a package with a network?
