Well, My Motorola V3 just broke.

and... now I need a new one...

Am looking for a few reccomendations in the $100 - $240 Price Range.

I text quite often and use the 2Degrees $10 txt pack.

Seen the vodafone 845 and the 2degrees ideos one.
they both look pretty good. also seen the LG KE850.

What are your opinions on a new phone?



-preferably android smartphone.

Thanks.

As much as I dislike Vodafone, the 845 phone deal is pretty sweet, for an entry-level Android phone...

I bought a Samsung SGH-i617 on TradeMe: 3G, Windows 6.5, pocket Office, Garmin GPS, E-mail, internet browser, QWERTY keyboard, camera etc. Oh yeah, can also be used as a phone :p Had a couple of minor hiccups at the start, but a very ethical vendor quickly sorted those out. All in all 8/10, and amazing value at around $200. PM me if you want the vendor's contact details.

... I hate vodafone too. But I am using the phone on 2degrees anyway.

I'll second (3rd?) the Vodafone 845.

I was very very skeptical at first when I saw the price tag, but after having suggested it to my sister-in-law, I'm quite impressed by them!

Comes with WiFi, GPS, Camera... Go in-store and give them a whirl, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how much is packed into the < $200 device!

You should wait until the boxing day/new years sales, as they should have some good deals. I got my phone from DSE in a boxing day sale for about 40% off.
