Thanks to muffinhead, and, originally IrishGypsy on MSE for this one.
As muffinhead has already posted, "I went to the Virgin Mobile stand in Zavvi in Reading today and got myself a brand new Nokia 1112 for only £2.50. This deal is for existing Virgin PAYG customers - I had to give my Virgin mobile number. You get no simcard & no credit but you do get a brand new phone. The phone costs £7.49 with a sim."
However - to take it a step further - visit http://www.tradeinyourvirginmobile.co.uk,
and Virgin will give you £6 to recycle a Nokia 1112. So - buy it for £2.50, they will send you a pre-paid envelope to send your shiny new 1112 off for recycling, and credit your VM account with £6! £3.50 clear profit !!
(ps - my first ever deal - so hope this is ok!)
