    Well I havent had a mobile for a while now which is pretty sad so I was wondering if any one could help me find a good priced mobile (under $200) that I could get in Australia

    also could you link me or pm me where to buy it since just saying the mobile name could take me to 50 other stores or can even be hard to find in australia also make sure its available in australia

    Any help is appreciated guys :)

    Usually I would do research my self but I am really clueless when it comes to phone and the phone market is so big now I don't know if I would be buying a shit or good mobile

    (sorry mod if this wrong section please move)

    Hi

    You can buy HTC Smart Phone on Ebay for around 60 British Pounds.

    They are amazing phones. Thats where I bought mine.

    Buy HTC Google Nexus One, it's an amazing phone with all the features of high ticket ones. You can find them unlocked for $250 on ebay ;)

    ZTE Blade for sure, it has the best screen of the lower cost android phones and you can hack it now so you can have gingerbread 2.3.

    It's awesome!

    Another vote for a Blackberry - I have the basic curve at the moment, but holding out to get the new Torch 2 when it comes out (Unless anyone in the UK has a Torch they want to sell :))

    I love my Blackberry Bold 9780. Love it. Allows me to text fast, surf the web, instant message. Good screen size, very durable, and not a touchscreen so I don't have to worry about it being gross. Just buy some replacement screen protectors on Ebay so you always have backups. I should also note: This is my first new phone since 2005, so I don't have a lot of experience with High End phones to compare.

    The blackberry 9780 is a great phone! I have one myself, the battery life is amazing if you turn 3G of (can last up to 48 hours with regular emailing and whatsapping). Absolutely loved my blackberry but the screen is a bit to small for me.

    The only downside I have for the Blackberry 9780 is sometimes I have hard time logging into websites because I accidentally put too many letters/numbers in for the password because yes, the screen is a bit too small to count the stars in password fields. Definitely not a 100% perfect phone, but I like it a lot.

    I am using Blackberry Bold 9000 and its a great phone to have. It is a very good phone but the browser is a bit of crap. But nothing is perfect. ;)

    LOL how good were the 3210's you could chuck that thing off a bridge, or use it as a weapon and it wouldn't break!

    They just dont make phones like that anymore.
