A lot of people buy these kinds of handsets ranging from £5 to £20, however I personally would recommend people against these... As they have more problems in the long run

Its a great price for a phone, however we have been in the phone industry for over 10 years, a lot of our customers bring us phones like these after they have gotton used to them, for replacement chargers, batteries, accessories or spare parts... They just arent available, I always encourage people away from Alcatel, Siemens and so on... If its a Nokia you can get a charger from anywhere, a battery, get it unlocked, get spare parts, etc

Great find, Millarcat, please dont take offence with what I said, I dont mean anything rude or bad about it... These are fine for people who just want a disposable phone, however it should be treated as such, they should expect to just throw it away if anything goes wrong

No offence taken MobilePhonez, thanks for the feedback

These types of phones are good 'first' phones or for older kids etc or for those who like to take a cheaper phone with them on a night out.


I know, I wish people treated them like that though I get so many old folk bringing in these kinds of things to me each day, asking about unlocking, repairs, batteries, chargers, screens, accessories, etc though

Should be treated like a disposable camera when broken throw it away and get another, or get a half decent one in the first place For the same price you also have woolworths LG KP130 deal, 2 for £30 They can be unlocked, they use the LG Chocolate charger, so you can get stuff for them, so in my opinion thats a better deal
