    Hi,

    I lost my mobile and am looking for the best replacement pay as you go mobile I could get for under £70.

    (I tend to prefer sony ericssons).

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    That's good... but the thing is, I'd really like to be able to use my old 3 sim.

    I'm on 3 too. I'm not sure what I would recommend, but it would definitely not be this.

    Probably the nearest you'll get on your network and price range is a Zylo:

    I had a W580i and it was brilliant and near your price range but not sure they do it on 3?

    If you can push it to this then do it. Note: this can be unlocked for £1 on eBay.
    Brilliant phone for that price, you just need to live with the branding.
    Sorry... I can't push it to that much. :emo:

    They do, but for way too much on 3 in comparison with other companies!
    (I'll keep the suggestion in mind though, thanks).

    This, definitely this. An amazing screen/phone at that price!

    3G is pointless if it isn't on a smartphone. Just get the £10 mobie phone for the time being.

    Are you getting mixed up with wi-fi?
    Simple phones are fine for things like MSN or quickly looking up things on the net. :p:

    Three use other providers Edge/GPRS :erm:
    3 sim cards will only work in a 3G phone
