    WANTED...mobile handset on 3 network... must be cheap

    My mobile is playing up and I'm a couple of months short of being entitled to a free upgrade. I need a phone to tide me over. My network is 3 so it must be compatible.

    thanks

    Duh doesnt take a rocket scientist to work out that :thinking:, why i said that you can get an ismartsim thing off dealextreme!!! Only asking for a tenner for a basic phone just thought i'd offer it to the OP too see if they wanted it or not!

    Also why i put ON VIRGIN in block capitals - not like i was trying to pan a phone off saying that itl work on three when it wont

    Forum rules state the seller must state a price. Please take a minute to read them.

    The phone will not work on Three with a DealExtreme sim or even if its unlocked as its not a 3G compatible handset...

    3G phones will be mid range to expensive, Nokias, Samsungs, LGs, etc...

    The OP specifically asked for a 3 compatible handset... You can unlock the Alcatel, You can stick a magic sim in the Alcatel, You can send the Alcatel to boot camp, You can strap a rocket onto the Alcatel but it will NOT work on Three...

    Forgot to add, if you use a phone which Three dont like with a contract sim, they may write to you telling you to stop using "unauthorised" equipment on their network, lol they might even block the phone... We have had a few customers that have had this happen, on Contract and on Pay as you go Three...

    There are quite a few phones that should work on Three, e.g 6300, 6500... etc however it might be safer and easier just to buy the cheapest pay as you go Three phone and use that or alternatively ask Three if they can provide a replacement or a cheaper handset you can use, sometimes they will give you one of their Pay as you go phones a little cheaper to keep you happy with their contract
