    Hi there,

    Basically I'm after a phone to use for a week or so whilst mine is sent off for repairs.

    All I need is an Android phone that's unlocked (for use with 3). The one that's kicking around at the back of your man draw!

    Probably don't need cables or anything, unless it uses some daft proprietary thing.

    Just need it to be working and unlocked!

    Let me know what you've got

    Haven't got one to offer, sorry. But, the Doogee X5 on Amazon for £43 is not bad at all.

    Runs 5.1.1 and quite slick. I've just got one to replace my broken business mobile & for £43 it'll be worth keeping in the drawer for another 'just in case' etc...

    Thanks guys. I really am after a proper cheap phone, like £10 - £15? That Doogee looks nice, but it's more than I really want to spend.

    Something like an old Samsung Galaxy S2 that anyone has?
