    Cheapest in that category would be the E398 which is about $500.

    well he is looking for one new and you certainly won't pick one of them up for $400 new but nether the less both great phones though no expandable memory. :)

    The E398 has 64Mb on a reduced size MMC card. I assume it would be possible to expand the memory but because its a strange one you would probably pay through the nose for a Motorola brand compatible MMC card.:eek:

    your both wrong, the e398 doesnt have RS-MMC it has Transflash memory or T-Flash, which is about the size of a finger nail, its tiny. its smaller than a sim card too. trust me, i have one:thumbup: they are an awsome phone. btw i got mine from stop.com.au on an $11 plan for $286. and you can get them for $499 on www.techoni.com.au :thumbup:

    I picked up my Nokia 6600 2nd hand after just 2 weeks of use for $400... absolute bargain and the best phone ive used in a while.

    Another vote for the 6600! The best screen around IMO and plenty of applications. Very easy to get a cracked MP3 player for it. I run a 256mb memory card on mine, great for storing heaps of MP3's and 3gp's.

    Cheers

    Yeah, MP3's sound great in mono...

    Also, nice work on letting everyone on a public forum know that you pirate software.

    He did not say he was using any pirated software, what he actual said was it was easy to obtain pirated software there is a big difference. :Pirate: :Pirate:

    Great if size is not an issue, might as well get a SE z1010 for $195 as it looks alot better.

    Or you can recommend to him a 7610 second hand.

    Dunno if it was a dodgy sale as it looks like the guy never responded :confused:
