    hi i was looking for a mobile. something cheap. my previous phone was a 3315. now i'am looking for a phone with a higher SMS storage capacity than 3315. 3315 had a SMS or text storage capacity of only 10msgs. something like a 100 would be nice. it should not be a color phone coz right now i cant afford to spend so much. i will buy a second hand of whatever you recommend. i can spend upto 2500 rs. any other brand other than nokia will also do . but nokia is preferable.

    I think the best posible option for you is to go for Nokia 1100. Its a hardy set with a large sms storing capacity. But I think you'll have to go a little beyond your budjet for that, its somewhat near 3-3.5K (most prpbably, check out for yourself). And any how, I don't think Nokia has anything in the range of 2.5K!

    If u Can then Go In for a Nokia 6610.....It has about 150 Sms Storing capacity...well it costs for around 7,000 to 8,000 bucks....i know its costly but this is a decent piece.....or go in for a Samsung c100 It will give ya 50 Sms in phone memory and 25 in Sim memory costing around 5,000 bucks..... :D

    hi

    hmm, lets see, if its more than 2500 in retail stores, i can go to national market. it will be cheaper there.
    and, what is 32K sim??? :?: do i have to pay more for that? can all phones take 32K SIM ?

    thanks for the replies . keep them coming.

    Re: hi

    with 2500, u cant even buy 3310, which costs 2800.no nokia phone is cheaper. even SE T100 is 2.9k .

    u have one option, dude. :idea:

    motorola C115 is available with airtel. buy that and u can get a 64K with their post paid connection....
    it "effective cost" is only rs 1500 (ie, u need to pay more but u get free sms, free talktime ,etc).

    in 64k we can store more in SIM, without having to depend on phone.

    32k sim can store more messages and contacts than the ordinary 16k sim's we all have.
    that u can get in prepaid connection itself, and btw, airtel is giving 32k sim for rs 50 extra.

    we have to opt for postpaid connection in order to get 64k sim. and u will have to a "gold member", in order to get that.contact airtel, to know more, dont ask us.

    yes, we can fit into all phones..., it is just an another sim card.

    thanks for your contributions everyone. the panasonic A100 is too small . wat do you think about the samsung slim phone? and by cheap i mean around 2500-3000rs.
