Hi George
Regardless of price, they are a great phone and we have 2 of them, a his and hers.
Will out perform other NextG Phone when the going get tough in that price range.
That seems to be the going price, but $100 cheaper than we we purchased ours before last Christmas.

I took one fishing with me about two weeks ago and it could not swim very well, so I went on the net and looked around, About $139 was the cheapest until I went on ebay.

Total cost was 112.50 including overnight delivery from brisbane to jabiru.

Came with warranty etc same as my first phone.

Have a look at ebay.

Regards Bob

Thanks for your replies.

Actually my current $50 Nokia CDMA went into the swimming pool a year or so ago-it was hilarious watching the light go out after flickering for a second or so-reminded me of the last scene in that Terminator filum......ha ha. I dismantled it and left it in the sun for a few hours, put it back together and it's never lost a beat since!

I'll look at ebay but I assume you don't then have any trouble getting it 'set up' at the Telsra shop? you know..... like getting your old number swapped to the Samsung and the balance of your account swapped over? I'm a luddite when it comes to mobile phones ....

I cheated. I took the SIM out of my old one and used it.

However, all of the instructions were in the box to enable me to hook up the phone with my old number just like I did with my original phone. Just get onto an operator using the info that comes with the phone. I have a bit of a reputation in my family for destroying phones in a very short time. One month has, unfortunately , been my best effort.

Thats why I was impressed with the price I paid for this one.

Oh, they are an excellent phone as well as cheap.

Totally off topic. Can I use my current SIM card (and number) in a nextG phone. If I can't, can I migrate and still use my current number?

Your old SIM card most probably won't work in NextG phone.

Today I went into a Telstra Licenced Shop to get a NextG SIM (will work in GSM or NextG phone) to replace my GSM-only SIM - they wanted $30. I told them I wanted to be able to use it in my wife's NextG phone.

I walked further down the shopping centre to Fonezone shop - they did it for free - guess where I'll go next time I'm buying a new phone.

You can do either however a GSM sim will only work in GSM mode in your next g phone. This is no big deal as i set my next g phone to GSM when out at sirte as it gets more reliable penatration into my room, and doesnt fade and drop out the same. The missus says she can hear the differnce when i have the phone set to GSM as it is clearer

Yes you can!

Telstra Sim no problems.

If the phone is unlocked any GSM sim will work.

However, note that you will be operating on your carriers GSM network not NextG.
