What mobile phone?
I've never been particularly worried about what phone I use. In fact, whenever the kids bring in their old phones, I usually pick the best looking one and swap it with mine. I've had a Nokia 3310 for a while now but I need a phone that is unlocked for when we go to South Africa in the summer holidays. My wife also has a 3310 which she complains is too bulky so I thought rather than pay to get mine unlocked I could get her something it little smaller on Ebay that is already unlocked. I don't want to pay much more than £25 if I can help it.
Any recommendations please?

Get the Motorola F3. If you want a phone that is just a phone you will not find better! Ultra thin, Ultra light, and Ultra Cheap!

Wow, 3310, man that is old!
laserblazer, download the WorldUnlock Calculator it can unlock most old Nokia's for free. I have unlocked many 3310 (back in the day now!) using it.
However, if you want something different, I have a brand new Nokia 2610 sitting at home. I brought it on a 12 months free contract for my wife but she has a flashy G600 Pink so has never used it. You can have it for £20 if you want...

Seems the Motorola F3 doesn't have a car charger facility. Zoom7000, thanks for the unlocker, seems to have done the trick I've sent you a PM about the phone.

Old post constantoo but thanks. We have a major phone company, Carphone Warehouse, who only supply unlocked phones. I ended up getting two little Nokia phones (can't remember the model). They were £19.99 on O2, plus £10 off if you traded in an old phone. They also included £10 of calls. So effectively, they cost -£0.01. We used the free calls to phone relatives at Christmas and then put in our Orange SIMS.

Apparently the 3310 is a collectors item now, dont get rid of it... someone i knew was looking at a new phone and the shop wanted to take the 3310 off them over their latest phone....
