:)Hello all

Unfortunately, I had to part with my mobile (insurance repair) today, which has left me phone-less.

I am after a "reasonable" mobile to tide me over until I get my phone back from the insurers.

Looking to spend around 20-30 quid, but needs to be unlocked or on Orange network.

Not fussed about anything fancy, and I am partial to the retro phones!

Hope somebody can help, as I have a lonely sim card on me at moment looking for lodgings!

Jason

Not to sound offensive, but bit pricey for 3310.

Do you have a shop, as I might pop in later?

I have an ex-wife, that's even close to offensive.

We have similar ones in, brand new, boxed, open to all networks. The offer of the 3310 was because of their liking for the "retro" stuff.

Have about half a dozen different ones, all brand new, under 30. Nokia, Samsung, Alcatel, and unlike some high street chains you don't have to buy any credit with them.

As a cheap/replacement/calls only mobile they're cheap. The Alcatel one takes two SIMs, useful for keeping your own/business number separate, a lot of people keep their private number in one slot and a throwaway SIM in the other for adverts (as above) so you don't get 100+ calls a day trying to get you to sign up for free boiler or reclaim your PPI.

I'd rather have the 3310 over the newer 'budget' phones, it has a certain charm about it, and will probably be worth a few quid in a couple of years/decades/centuries.
