Very quick question for The Pit:

I have to go buy a new mobile on my lunch break from work in about 25 minutes.

It has to be on a UK Pay As You Go deal and can't possibly be an iPhone as there's no way in hell I can afford one.

Any recommendations?

samsung galaxy mini

£100 from carphone warehouse

i bought one just to piss about with android games on but as a phone it's actually unbelievable for the price!

if you don't buy it, at least check it out.

Umm, is there a Tesco near you? They usually have a selection of PAYG phones.



Near where I work I have access to:

Orange, O2, Carphone Warehouse, Vodaphone and possibly a couple of others, nearest Tesco is on the outskirts of town so that's a no-go =\

Well yes but just searching for "I need a new mobile" doesn't help much I don't know much about mobiles right now, I haven't been paying much attention since the Nokia 3330 went out of fashion

£200 is the absolute top mark, preferably a little less than that...

I think everyone had one of those at some point as well

If I knew that I wouldn't be asking

No, seriously, I'm leaning towards a Blackberry Curve right now, I just wanted to know if anyone has anything they'd say "YES GET THIS NOW!" to.

I still remember my very first mobile... It was one of those promotional Coca-Cola Sony Ericssons, with the huge aerial on the top, and the snap-off interchangeable front lol.

nah like if you're going to a chain store than just go onto their website...they usually packed with info, that's just my way though I never buy a brand new phone on the spot I always do the research.

AEDIT: I wasn't kidding by the way.




If P. Diddy has one, we all should.

I have a Blackberry Curve and it's pretty good, probably helped by the fact that so many people I know also have Blackberries, I find myself using Blackberry Messenger more than texting.

Don't really know what it's like for media, although the camera is really poor.

Not sure how much it is on PAYG either, since I'm on contract

If you like to take pictures - Get a Sony Ericsson Cybershot
If you text a lot - Get a blackberry
If you play games - Get a HTC on Android or WP7

Good choice. As has been said a few times, the BB series is great for texting, pretty good for internet too. BBM isn't too bad, considering that more and more people are buying BB's nowadays.

Shows just how much you read my post or rather did you even click on the link? If you did, you wouldn't have wrote what you posted.

Have you ever thought that he might have been out, actually buying the phone when you posted that link?

Guess I should have been more specific, I meant Vitchb and not you.

Quote by maiden_man_666
You could get an HTC for that price


Possibly but I know I didn't want an android phone, everyone I know who's owned one has had some kind of trouble with either the phone itself or the OS or something. BB does everything I could possibly want out of a phone right now and more, it looks like something I want to own and I've not actually heard anything bad about it in any way that matters. About the only negative point I could find out of anyone was that the interface isn't as flashy as some and I really don't care about that. Sometimes I'm still impressed when I see colour screen phones for god's sake


Seriously, no more debate guys, the phone is in my pocket. You can say "you should have bought this" all you like but I've spent my money now
