    oooooooooooookay lol, thats not going to help me get a cheap mobile though is it? lol.

    I know this is in the wrong section for this, but i will also consider second hands for sale.
    (if a mod wants it moved, move it, but its a deal request first imo)

    Dont suppose you know if you its unlocked/will work on Orange.

    [EDIT] just seen it is cross network.

    e2save.com/vir…650

    I've bought from e2save a few times and their phones are almost always unlocked. Plus, whenever i've given them a ring instead of buying online, they don't make you buy the top-up.

    I got a good deal on a phone there last year and phones been great

    I personally would recommend the LG KP100 then as its under a £10 and you dont have to buy a topup... However its best to ring a couple of phone shops in your area and see if they can unlock it for you, we charge £5 to unlock these, however the problem is quite a few shops dont bother with unlocking equipment for LG handsets... If you have the right equipment its very easy to do.
