    I'm looking for a budget smartphone. Must be simfree, as I won't be in the UK very long. Also must have wifi. I'd like it to have 3 megapixel and above flash camera, as well as mp4 player, but those I can waffle on a bit. The closest I've seen to this is the LG Optimus L3. If you've got any other suggestions let me know

    Only problem is the fact its locked to vodaphone (if your lucky they'll unlock for free - if not its a £5 jobby on ebay.)

    Nah, would like something that's either not locked or easy to unlock.

    I'd second the g300, great phone for the price. If not, prehaps the Galaxy ace.

    A refurbished isn't TOTALLY out of the picture, but I would much prefer to get a new one

    HTC Desire : £99 (refurbished A grade)
    HTC Wildfire S: £99 (refurbished A grade)
    iPhone 3 GS £104 (refurbished A grade)

    If you purchase any of these handsets, you will only receive the handset, usually no charger, box or instructions. However they are much cheaper that RRP sim free cost.

    I recently bought a Samsung galaxy Y from argos, sim free, £119.99. http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...s|14419108.htm
    I'm enjoying it so far. The camera and music player don't meet your requirements but it meets the price and is great for using the internet.
