Cheap Android phone
I've started using the Zombies, Run! Couch to 5K app and am really enjoying it, however recently my headphone jack has become a bit "temperamental" on my HTC Desire HD and some sound goes quiet/cuts out etc unless the jack is held in a certain way (which is hard when running!) Rather than the expense of sending it off for repair, I was thinking it may be easier to buy a dirt cheap basic Android smart phone purely for running with, on that can run the Zombies, Run! app, has enough room for a bit of music and also has GPS tracking so I can accurately map my runs. I wont bother putting a SIM in it as it's not needed. Anyone have any recommendations?

Have you considered the Samsung Galaxy Ace?
These are ok little phones and would probably do the job you want for very little money.
There would be plenty of phones for you to choose from.....Have you tried somewhere like CEX?
CeX (UK) Buy & Sell Games, Phones, DVDs, Blu-ray, Electronics, Computing, Vision & CDs

have you checked the jack hasnt got full of lint, I have seen this before where unless you are physically pushing it in, then it won't work.

Selling 2 HTC Sensations soon, one has a few dead pixels on screen so will be going for cheap.

Recently bought myself one. Would recommend as a main phone. Wouldn't recommend it "just" for Zombies, Run! but if you're going to use it for more than that, it's a lovely all-rounder. I can give a better review if you really want xD

I used one of these as a workaround for a broken headphone socket
Sony Ericsson MW-600 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
Should work on any Bluetooth enabled phone.

Oooo thanks. Can't seem to find any Android smartphones around that price so this looks like an ideal solution.

I use a Huawaei Blaze (£40). I bought it as a stop-gap phone as I keep wrecking them, but it's now 6 months old and going strong. So far it's been a surprisingly tough little phone.
