Dear all I know very little about mobiles. My wife wants me to buy her a new phone and will use it for the following (in descending order of priority); 1) sending text messages Australia around 50 per month 2) sending text messages UK around 50 per month 3) Australia calls (to a mobile) around 30 minutes per month 4) UK calls (to mobile) under 60 minutes per month We understand (or think we do) that if we buy a smart phone then we would be able to download an application to help reduce the cost of texts to Australia. We haven't found any call plans or bundles with an overseas text allowance. Are there any? From what we have read, it would seem sensible to have a phone which is wi-fi capable so that it can be used at home via our broadband connection. Finally, she's always used Pay as You Go and not a contract & if possible, she prefers to keep it this way. Would anyone be able to point us in the general direction of which phone and which tariff/operator we should be looking at? Many thanks for any help.
