Cheap Mobile Phone - May 21st 2009, 03:34 PM

Looking for a bit of advice here.

My phone has decided to play silly beggars and for some reason if I call someobody or they call me, they cannot hear me. Tried absolutely everything with it like turning it on and off, banging it on the table and throwing it against the wall. Nothing has worked.

So does anybody know of a website where I can find a cheapish mobile to keep me going? I'm not overly fussed what kind it is as long as its not too old.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Cheers

Have you tried your supermarket like Asda or Tesco? They sell mobile phones so maybe you'll be able to get one pretty cheap. Same for places like Argos as well.

^^ Asda or teco's your best bet really.

orange do a 4.50 phone, flip! mum's got it LOL

Or Argos do 24 phone slide, does the job pretty decent for the cash really.


If you live for ever?

Try CEX (Computer exchange)

They are a proper Exchange shop, they do electronics, games consoles...& millions off phone. You can get camera phones for under 30

Im not sure I can give you the website...but its all legit, there is one near me & I go in there twice a week.

Its fantastic

Erm, I'd say it's okay to post the link, since you're doing it to answer the OP's question rather than to advertise the site.

And in response to the question, I have to agree, Tesco or Asda do surprisingly good deals for mobiles.
