    Hi all.

    I've been mobileless for about 4 years now and have finally decided to buy one.

    I did look around the local shopping area with some uni friends who know about phones but didn't see anything of interest.

    I'd appreciate if anyone could reccomend a good model thats:

    * o2 network
    * NO camera or other cheesy add-on
    * Pay as you go
    * below £60

    Thanks in advance :D

    EDIT: I did find this on my haul through many-a-webpage: http://www.phones4u.co.uk/shop/shop_payg_details.asp?itemkey=123035&st=215 I've found it for £49.99 on another site (though it's descriptions aren't as good). Any views?
     
  2. My advice is this:

    Don't listen to my advice on this topic.

    seems like a good choice to me yoshi.

    although ive been contract for a couple of years now, i couldnt imagine going back to pay as you go....

    Nokia 3310 or 3320,good solid reliable phones, consider a secondhand one (you'd probably get one for £30 or so).
    Plus there are loads of accessories for them (Covers,Facias,keypads) so if you get a scruffy secondhand one you can bring it back to mint for about fifteen quid!

    Thanks a lot for all the advice, even bau tigers..(confused?!).

    I went searching in town today with the plan of 'if I don't find anything good I shall just get the one i linked to'.

    I found a nifty one in town for £49.99. A basic phone for novices wth no hi-tech features (the clerk was shocked when I protested against such devices!). I got home and it turns out that the phone I bought was infact the one I linked too :D Strange eh?

    On a lighter note, I've already scored the number of a girl from uni :hyper:

    You see dude, the whole not having a mobile phone thing sucks. You score chicks with mobile phones.
