Boogre

Phone Choice advice...

I'm after a relatively basic phone. Only condition is it must have a 3.5mm jack so I can plug in headphones and use as an MP3 player. Other than that I am a relatively light user: dont use that many minutes/texts/data. Ideally I want a contract that is only about £10 a month or PAYG with a low cost handset. Any suggestions?

The Orange San Francisco seems pretty popular for a budget PAYG Android handset: http://www.mobot.net/orange-san-francisco-grey-white-99-incl-10-topup-argos-13200

I checked up on the headphones connector as that wasn't in our specs, but confirmed that it has one in TechRadar's review: http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/orange-san-francisco-901915/review

Thanks. In the end I plumped for a Nokia C3 Touch & Type (got the 3.5mm jack and looks like a good handset with a few features that I think I will use : decent camera/wifi connection and its not a complicated touch screen phone). Phone was free. I've got 100 mins/ 100 texts and unlimited internet for a £10 monthly contract with T Mobile. Sure I'm locked in for 24months, but at a tenner a month thats no biggie, and I dont have the initial outlay for a PAYG handset
