Wanted: Red Mobile Phone £100.00

I wish I was joking, but here's a conversation between me and my wife:

Wife: I want a new phone.
Me: You just got one.
Wife: Yeah, but I want another one.
Me: ...
Me: Ok, what sort of phone do you want:
Wife: I dunno...
Me: Camera, music player, etc?
Wife: ...I want a red phone.
Me: How about pink?
Wife: No, a red phone... and if not red, then silver.

So basically, I want to buy her a red phone!

I did buy her a 5800 which she is ok with but it's not ideal (more black than red!!)

I think ideally, a Tocco Ultra, W995, Viewty Red would be the best bets. Either unlocked or on Orange.

Looking to spend, give or take, about £100!

I also have a LG KS360 and a Nokia 5800 for part exchange but I don't want to sell either of them (at the moment) for cash, solely to trade for a phone for sale here.

So does anyone have anything?

Can also offer this:

Or an as new Nokia 5800 unlocked as trade.

couldn't you just buy her a red cover for her current phone?

We've had this discussion before, and no lol.

£100 for the tocco ultra is a bit optimistic isnt it? Not sure about the other phones but Im sure the viewty is only about £99 brand new now....might be worth looking into?....although just realised the red is only for vodafone (well it was) so unlocking would be on top of that :)

It is optimistic so can add more than £100, that's just ballpark, and I have phones to trade.

And yeah, the Viewty red needs unlocking and is cheaper so if anyone has that, I clearly wouldn't want to pay £100!

£100 is a ballpark, of course I'd be ok paying a bit more and a bit less for the right phone.

Lol,

More interested in the Tocco Ultra rather than the Tocco Lite but thanks for the interesting idea!!

I've got a red SE K750i brand new still boxed lying in a cupboard that you can have for £40.

I know its probably too old a model - but still an excellent phone/camera and its red :)

Yeah, I asked for the same thing about two weeks ago. Bought a Nokia 5800 out of it and whilst it is ok, I can't get used to the touch of it and even though it's my wife's, occasionally I need to use it too!

Had no other luck that time, trying again!

The LG Viewty comes in red and looks really nice, I had a boring old silver one :-(

Good find - I clicked a link to Prepaymania from Google and found this one :w00t:

Edit: It's out of stock :-(
#16
I must admit to hating prepaymania. Bought one thing from there, came incomplete and I had to jump through so many hoops to get it sorted.

Plus, the £99.99 one is out of stock.

It's at £90 or so at Argos but it has the nasty Vodafone logo on the bottom :(

Thanks for the help though Mrs.Z, will show this to the missus!

I bought my 5800 from them a few weeks ago and all was perfect :)

Good phone on paper but has bad reviews with reliability, particularly the alarm which my wife uses more than the call or text "option"!!

Thanks though.

Okay no worries, my friend has had the phone a while and had no worries. I bought it and changed me mind!

This is an absolutely gorgeous red. I bought it just cos I liked the colour. I found it hard to use the qwerty keyboard though and sold it! Can pick them up starting from £150

Bit dear for me unless someone else is selling it, thanks though.

Bump 1/3.

Thanks, but a reliable review:

"But the big problem with the W760i is its appalling reliability. It regularly freezes, shuts itself down or drops calls. The alarm seems to never work. The menus are slow. Basically, despite all the lovely features and the good looks, we urge you not to buy this phone. "

My wife's main uses are call, text and alarm! But thanks!

Appreciate the advice.

Don't mind paying a bit more for the W995 as it's a good phone.

I can't wait for w995 to drop to 100 but probably end up waiting a year

Tocco ultra of eBay can be had for £120

Thanks anyway but will pass. Mark on the screen and the vodafone brand, no-nos for me!

Thanks though,

If your that bothered about logos they can be gotten rid off using sugar and greaseproof paper. Works in the same way as sand paper. Abrasive enough to remove the branding but not enough to scratch the plastic.

The scratches on the screen are worse.

But that said, how reliable is this? If it is, I can use it on my HTC Magic and effectively, make it unbranded!!

Final bump.
