1st requirement - cheap
2nd - no camera
3rd - Doesnt delete the stored call register or text messages when the sim card is changed (I think all sony ericssons do this)
4th - Decent reception.
5th - Loud ringer, I keep missing calls on the t610 because even on loud the stupid polyphonics it comes with are too quiet


3g, mms, stupid ringers are not required.

Good luck with number 3

Other than that the Nokia 1100 is $79.95 at Noel Leeming covers most of those.

3 is kind of the deal breaker, I dont see the point in moving texts to the phone if they are just going to vanish when I use a different sim in it. If the phone would leave them on the sim then it wouldnt be an issue.


I did quite like the nokia 1100 when I had one, didnt realise they were that cheap now. - its one of the fastest to turn on unlike most flasher phones that take up to a minuite from attaching the battery and hitting on till you can make a call.

The SE P910 doesn't delete the call log or text messages when a different sim card is inserted.

Though it fails your first and second requirements.

Your 1st and 3rd requirements are blocking you to have the perfect deal:

Cheap phones have no internal memory so they store the call register and txt messages on the SIM card, which obviously wont be available in the phone after you change it.

Only expensive phones store those in their internal memory, but many of them only the txt messages, the call register will be deleted anyway. At least in the Nokia ones.

No, the SOny ericsson t610 stores the call register on the phone, as the texts, but it deletes this store when chaning sim cards. If it was on the sim that would be fine.

I can understand that its there to stop me from calling someone or texting back from the wrong sim and potentially giving them a number that I would rather they did not have, but its very frustrating when you have to text people to get an address or something again because you lost it when you popped another sim in to make a quick call to someone else.
