Have any UK members upgraded to BT Total Broadband Anywhere?

I currently pay £24.99 per month for BT Broadband option 3, but if I upgrade to the Anywhere at £29.99 per month, I get this free HTC S620 Mobile Smart Phone - PDA - WiFi - BLUETOOTH - WINDOWS, I have seen the item advertised at anywhere up to around £300, although BT claim it's worth £150, so for the sake of an extra £5 a month, might be worth it.

The specifications:

Just wondering if anyone upgraded and what's the phone/PDA like, any good? I have rad reviews, but I would like to hear from someone I know/trust. rather than an unknown reviewer.

I've only used HTC made windows phones since the very first one came out, and now couldn't live with anything else. They are wonderful.

Having said that... ehm... how to put this? The phones deserve windows and windows deserves the phones. Every single one has had some kind of minor flaw in terms of both software and hardware.

My current one has a really irritating bug where it remembers old alarm time settings and keeps using them as well as what any new ones you've put in, and its too easy to knock the microSD memory card out by accident.

Last one had a dust behind the screen and answering machine msg notifications failing to appear / failing to go away problem.

One before that had a battery cover falling off and volume turning itself to silent without saying it had problem.

One before that had a failing to notice you've pulled the headset out and crashing frequently problem.

And etc...

But I really love them as phones, they are the ultimate in boys toys. I really couldn't live without one anymore...

I'd have a look round the forums at to see if there's anything there on it - it's generally reliable and has info from both sides!
