I need a cheap, loud and reliable 2G phone

8
Posted 24th Oct
I've had many Android smartphones. Eventually they had some failures at one point and I had to go back to my old and trusted Nokia 1100, which unfortunately is now on its last legs.

I don't care about 3g/4g or Internet access. I need a phone that:

1) is unlocked
2) is loud when it rings and vibrates
3) long battery life
4) ideally also camera but not essential.

Is the Nokia 105 what I'm looking for?

And does anybody know if the phones sold at Asda are unlocked?

Doro's flip phones are quite good. Argos do 'em.
The Nokia posted by jbecker is a good one to go for, with the loooooong battery life.
How much is the Nokia 3310 unlocked SIM free

£28.
Asks for a £10 top-up though.
Should be able to deflect that by saying, "yeah, I'll get round to it, send me the phone now" and then using the SIM you already have.


2G model, £22 on eBay rover.ebay.com/rov…980
but OOS.
3G model, refurbed for £26
rover.ebay.com/rov…342


Argos are selling it SIM free no strings attached for £50.
They have other cheaper SIM free models

Keypads aren't as good as they were when it was 100% Finnish genuine Nokia made phones of yesteryear.

The £5 Alcatel from O2 is alright but you'll get about 9 days battery life on standby.

No, thanks. I've had two Alcatel in the last 3 years and both rubbish.
