Hi guysrecently my dad's 3 year old Samsung R220 broke down. He was just thinking of a way to stop using his cellphone. He wants to be more 'disconnected' while others dont feel the same. It's actually quite useful for him as he is always on the move. Now that his cellphone has broken down he refuses to get a new one. He feels its an unnecessary expenditure.So to convince him I would like to get a really CHEAP phone. I dont care about the manufacturer and I dont care about the features (as long as its a phone its ok with me). The price range I am looking for is Rs.1500-3000. Anybody suggest me a good phone?

if u want a nokia 3585 ( cheap ) , which works with tata quite brilliantly . then u can contact me , i had to switch to Airtel for international roaming so had to leave tata :( , it has all the features , u can check at nokia site and if u are intrested then contact me @ abhishek_vij2003@yahoo.com.

Btw go for a nokia phone if ur buyin a cheap model coz nokia phones are far more sturdy than samsun or motorola , siemens cheap mobile range is also good but lacks on some features.

I forgot to get back to this topic. I bought Nokia 1100 on Monday. I tried locating the Motorola handset but apparently the dealers dont keep it. Nokia 1100 rocks! Its a great phone. I would recommend it. For 2500 bucks it was a good deal.
