I have a budget of about $200 for a new mobile (pref VF) and am looking for suggestions. Theres an abundance of chinese imports on trademe and I am happy to go with one of these but can someone reccomend one, both for reliablity and features. If it's a dual sim card phone would also be great.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers
Stu

I'd avoid the chinese imports, why not just find a second hand Nokia 6121? would be available for under two hundred bucks and is a S60 phone

Brand new (and runs on S40) is the Nokia 2730 $199.00 no plan. Free on a new txter/talker 60 plan.

Got one for my wife yesterday - good little phone.

when Stu has already said is fine with buying off trademe then I wouldn't consider buying any phone brand new from VF
