Any recommendations for a low end android device to replace a Nokia Lumia 710?

have a nexus4 currently on ee (T-Mobile) but tend to also carry the Lumia as it comes in handy when ee are being terrible or if I've managed to do something daft and run out of power on the nexus (eg forgetting to plug the car charger in then using GPS for a long journey)


Lumia has an ovivo microsim in so would either need Something that takes microsims or an adaptor.

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Please post in the forum instead. You will get more help there :)

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Spoiler

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Spoiler

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

(If not, Press it anyway!)

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

I've always been put off by these as you're never quite sure if they've kept to all the safety standards, perticullarly given the quality of some of the cheap chargers you can get on ebay.

Most of the devices, I *think* actually conform to EU Regulation, and if you are really worried, use one of the chargers you already have for your blade, Vega or u8810, they probably will all have the same microUSB connector. 

Also, I would post asking about a phone that does have all the EU Regulation...

Focalprice have some decent throwaway Cubot dual core phones for under £45:

Dual sim so you could throw an extra ovivo data sim in there to up your allowance to 1.5gb.

Only problem is TD-SCDMA ...not that I know that much about the difference.  :wacko:

Wrong frequency as well, It looks like TD-SCDMA is used by some of the networks in China.

 

Also not that worried about data on Ovivio usually use less than 100MB most months as only thing that phone usually does with data is sync my email.

 

I do browse on it, but only if the battery is flat on the Nexus or i've got no signal on EE (T-mobile) as I have unlimitied data on the t-mobile sim.
