Wanted: Fairly cheap mobile phone.

First off, this is NOT the same as this thread: http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=371045. There I wanted a high end mobile phone to replace my Samsung Soul.

Here, my brother in law has asked me to buy him a fairly cheap mobile phone. It should be somewhat similar to the Nokia 6680 which has a 1.3mp camera which is what he is replacing. Needn't be a good phone really, similar to the Nokia 6300 or so would be ideal but I want it fairly cheap.

If anyone has one, please let me know. Condition should be pretty decent, no major scratches, especially on screen, and supplied with a charger and preferably, the headset too.

I have got two mobiles Lobster 621 on virgin and vodafone 533 locked to vodafone. Both are BNIB. I would like to offer 621 for £20 and 533 for £25.
Would prefer a Nokia and one that's either unlocked or easily unlocked.

Wow dude, your selling a lot, are you moving to mars or something :-D

Is that the E900?

Again, would prefer Nokia.
Much too expensive, looking closer to the £20 or £30 mark.

yeah it is...thought no harm in offering.:-D
Hey I think you might be in luck.

I had the Nokia 6680 - superb phone absolutely loved it. The next best phone for your brother in Law would be a Nokia 6120 - as like the 6680 it's a smartphone, and basically very similar features.

Fully boxed, and in very good condition + 2GB Sandisk Premier micro SD (accessories still unused - in packaging!) about 6 months old. Comes with an unlock sim. £50 delivered - very competitive, have a look on ebay.
Hi Rash,

Can I presume that you're selling that?

I'm not too bothered about all the other accessories really, nor the microSD, nor the unlock sim. What network is it locked to btw?

Sounds good but to be honest, is above my price range. Certainly seems competitive but how low can you go?
yup I am selling the 6120.

Currently on 3 - had this since new. The accessories are basically charger and headset (i know - stingy Nokia!). The unlock sim unlocks it basically to all networks. Very handy - and also doesn't void warranty, as this phone is still under warranty. I really want to sell it as a package, I got the whole package from 3 inc. the micro SD card.

I think this would be a good replacement as it's basically the same layout/options as the Nokia 6680 - i.e. a smartphone. And from all the Nokia phones - the 6680 is very responsive and so is this phone. And you can install apps like TomTom, Nokia maps, Garmin etc. on to it.

I also have a brand new Nokia 2630 (£20), but it just be a downgrade from the Nokia 6680 - hence why I didn't mention it. Not only that but it's a 'dumb' phone and I don't think your brother in law would like it too much. :thumbsup:
Ok, then the package sounds good but the price is just too high for my brother in law unfortunately.

I'm open to offers.

Maybe 2630 then?
To be honest Rash, my range is around the £20 and £30 mark so I wouldn't even be as rude as to make an offer knowing how high the asking is for me! If you drop it voluntarily I can make a closer offer...

And the 2630 has too poor a camera.
First bump guys, anything?

Rash, let me know if you drop the price on that phone.

Sorry can't really go any lower on the phone. A £30 budget is quite low.
Fair enough but if you do drop it, let me know, but £50 is just too high for my liking, can't get the budget that high
Theres a faulty 6233 on Ebay for about £35 including posting, just has a fault with the volume button, have a look around for the Nokia 6233 and 3110C they are similar in features to the 6300 but a little cheaper so you might be able to pick one of those up in your budget???
Any links mate?
Sorry mate, it only had a few mins to end when I saw it... So I didnt post the link, however do have a look on there for the 6233 and 3110c (search for 3110 instead of 3110c, but check its actually a 3110c rather than the older 3110 :) )

They are both quite good handsets, similar in features to the 6300, a friend that owns a phone shop swears by the 6233, he wont use anything else, says its the loudest Nokia ever and loves it... As they are not as popular as the 6300 you may be able to pick one of these up in your budget :)
6233 has awful reviews and the 3110 is a bit too expensive.
Dont always trust reviews, you'll find bad reviews for everything ever made... People complain more than they praise... You will find more people will spend their time looking at bad things and writting about them, the ones that dont have a problem with the phone and like it never bother to go and write about it :)

The 3110c is cheaper new than the 6300, so this should be cheaper second hand...
True but I'm not looking at people reviewing, looking at mobile phone sites:


I'm fond of this site and a 1 star makes me think stay away!

The 3110, still seemed at around the £50 mark on eBay...
We repair phones every day mate, at some time or another we have come across every phone imaginable and I only recommend the phones basically that we dont get in all the time to repair... We have been in the industry for over 10 years, a lot of our customers will only ever come to us every time they want a new phone because of that we are very very carefull about every phone we sell, for example we get a lot of SE K800 repairs each week, software issues, etc due to that we have never sold one of those as I wouldnt subject one of my customers to one of those... With the 6233 we have sold quite a few and never had a problem, often with these reviewers they have an early batch of an item, they then play with the item for about a day sometimes even less and write about it as I said you cant trust reviews. In this case though the reviewer did recommend the 6300, now ask a few other people and you will see a few people will also moan about the 6300...

Your looking for something similar to the 6300, it has to be a Nokia better than the 6680 and very very cheap, there really arent that many options available...
Similar to the 6680 is also phone, doesn't have to be better than it, just somewhat equivalent and similar!
Second bump, only Rash's has interested me so far though too expensive.
Final bump before this is expired...
