    My mam is desperate for a new phone. She has to take the battery out to hang up a call :dohh: so I was thinking I might get her one for Christmas. I could probably get some money from my brother and sister so say a budget of about £100. Would have to be pay as you go too. Can anyone recommend a good phone or some good deals?

    Tesco are offering £15 off their pay as you go phones if you spend over £30 instore

    I just bought my dad a samsung galaxy ace for £64 instead of £79 and It would have cost £90 in the carphone warehouse

    It's a decent enought wee smartphone, Leah and jack got them for Christmas 2 years ago and they were around £140 then. One got batters off the radiator and screen broke but the other one is going strong and still getting used every day

    With tesco mobile do you have to be on their network? I'm pretty sure my mam will want to keep her sim?

    Arte you on facebook? I just got my mum a pretty decent mobile from one of my local selling sites. Brand new in box (unwanted upgrade) for £35 they are selling on Amazon for £110! Infact I have got loads of Christmas presents from them (all boxed brand new) for a fraction of the price - as the saying goes one mans trash is another mans treasure :winkwink:

    How about a Nokia they have a lot of different ones, easy too use and they seem to last very well x

    Thanks girls,

    Selling pages. I'm pretty certain there will be one but I can't for the life of me find any. I live in Newcastle, if anyone can help me I would be eternally grateful!
