Anyone? Looking for a good smartphone in good condition. Android for preference, 3.5 inch+ screen, MDPI (320*480)+ resolution, got to have or be upgradable to gingerbread. Prefer it with standard rom instead of a custom cyanogen or miui etc. Decent camera is a must. Would be great if it still had boxes and manuals, but not a must.

Don't know what is out there for this price so just putting this out there to see.

Thanks
Paul

Was looking at 2 degrees/vodafone. Should have said.
Cheers for that, been having a look at the gio, but was not too sure about it.

Sony Xperia X10i. Purchased from Vodafone NZ and had little use due to the free Galaxy S2 I procured shortly after getting this phone.

Has the standard issue gingerbread ROM with original manuals, box, charger etc.

$300

I've asked my folks to send me a Huawei Ascend G300 from the UK (100ukp from Vodafone UK). If you know anyone there you could try the same?

Yes. Might not be such a good deal..


Some people say it can be unlocked for free if the person asks nicely in the shop

The OP might be best getting a second hand galaxy S  or something..

Sorry mate, more that I was looking to spend. I think the search is off, thanks for the suggestions and comments.
