    Hi, I'm wanting to buy a new phone. I'm not looking for anything fancy but here is what I would like:

    colour screen
    camera
    small & light (under 90g)

    umm that's about it but long talk and standby times is obviously a plus.

    the phones i have been looking at so far are:

    sony ericsson k500i
    siemens c65 and cx65
    sharp gx15
    sendo p600

    what do you think of these? are there any phones with the specs i want that are cheaper? I'm wanting to get a sim-free pay-as-you-go phone or maybe a networked pay-as-you-go phone that I can unlock.

    thanks for any advice offered! :thumbsup:

    I bought the Sony Ericsson K700i recently from the Orange website on Pay-As-You-Go for £140. For the money this is a really good phone. The camera is only 0.3 megapixel but it of a very decent quality. The colour screen is spot on, absolutely no problems with that whatsoever and at least on a par with my old Samsung E700. The phone also has Bluetooth (very useful), GPRS and all the other features you'd expect including a relatively addictive 3D darts game.

    On the downside, the battery life isn't the best but it isn't as bad as some people make out. With normal usage I can get 4 or 5 days out of it before it needs charging and it only takes around 90 minutes for a full charge.

    hi there, thanks for your reply. i'm really not wanting to spend that much - more like half that amount!

    i'm looking at the sony ericsson f500i now. it's only £70 on vodaphone pay as you go. if i got this phone could i get it unlocked and put my own (non vodaphone) sim card in it?
