    Theres a galaxy s3 mini out now. Only about 10k baht. You would be better off buying one at swampy on your next visa run

    Nokia are shit mate. Good for the camera and maybe music but the operating system is pish
    Get an android. You can get all the apps for 3
    Th galaxy advance which i have is down to 10k now too, its like an s2 but a slightly lower spec. It will get a jellbean upgrade soon too.
    It does everything i need in a phone. I fully reccommend it

    I have just switched to Samsung from Nokia thought about a lumia but decide it was time for a change of company.
    So far the Samsung has impressed me don't think i will be going back to Nokia,i like being able to link my mobile to my Google account makes life so much easier.

    The Midget has the 610. Dead easy to use, but only has 256 RAM which means some Apps can't be downloaded and it doesn't have Thai. Get the next one up if you can afford it.

    The only downside I can see is you need to charge it every night ,, it does eat the battery , but then from what little I know about these type of phones I believe they do use quite a bit of battery power.

    The map app which comes with this for me has proved invaluable this week as I have been driving a spare lorry with mine away in a garage 50kms from our depot having to get the engine management reset with computers ,,, with all my bloody maps in it , my fault.

    But my little HTC has saved the day ! bless it so easy , even can watch myself driving along on the bloody map ,, its unreal

    Nokia maps does the same.

    Anyway, from the link above it looks like the Midget is going to upgrade her phone to the Samsung SIII Mini, so I get the 610 and the oldest lad gets my Nokia Classic thingy. The youngest won't get the pink Nokia as he has enough brain retardation through attending a Thai school without microwaves adding to it.

    That's going to be really useful to him in Thailand, a UK 2 year contract on a phone locked to a UK network!

    Wife has one. Likes it a lot. She uses it for phone calls. I have a Nokia, and I also use it for more phone calls. I had a smart Samsung phone a while back when BettyBoo was shopping them. It met with an unfortunate demise, it burst!

    Took it in as it was only three weeks old and under warranty. Took Samsung repair one week to repair. that same day I visited the phone mall and shopped around for best trade price for the Samsung Smart Galaxy SII. Best I could get was 7,000. I swooped in and collected it mas rapido!

    Walked down a few doors and picked up my old favorite Nokias version of Smart. does just fine for me and when I was hooked at the hip with wi-fi it was stunning. 79 baht per week for the service. since I'm not addicted to the news of the world, stock exchange, videos, porn channel, text messages, twitter, Facebook and tonight's menu, I dropped the wi-fi and simply use the phone as it was originally intended.

    Why doesn't anyone call? To busy with their Smart aspects I suppose?

    Look A.O. lets not get to personal here. I'll give you my number, but you'll have to keep it in a safe place.

    You are doing a lot better than me, as my phone rings but there's nobody on the other end usually. Mostly AIS messages wanting me to connect with some music or discount. I pay 3 baht per minute for all L.D., local is like 1 baht/min.

    Since I don't make calls and nobody calls me, (they're all dead) I have a lot of time left on my phone. Call 081345-6789 anytime day or night. I hope my doctor doesn't mind you reversing the charges?

    She did look at the advert on a Thai website, but can't bring herself to buy one of them things. We will take a look at one before a purchase is made though.

    The make might put her off,
    I bet you if she tries the s111 mini then the iq5 she will go back and forth comparing a few times then take the iq5.
    It has 2 sim slots inside, my missus likes to keep her brothers numbers seperate
