Author Topic: Got myself a punting phone for 99p  (Read 4377 times)

Hi all,

Just thought you'd like to know that Carphone Warehouse are doing Nokia 105 basic PAYG phones for 99p (plus £20 credit) so you shell out £21. The services are Virgin and O2. It is a basic job, doesn't have a camera, or do anything fancy like access to the internet.

The colours are black and blue. Don't read anything into that for a punting phone guys :D

The battery life is claimed to be 12 hours of phone calls. Obviously its too soon to tell as I only just got it but it seems to be performing well.  It has a torch which is accessed by pressing the up scroll key twice. However for safety reasons I have to advise against using it to illuminate a WG's back passage.....as the light is pretty feeble and you'd do yourself a mischief.

LOL, fantastic advice for some of the brave souls on here who punt on their everyday phone despite being in a relationship. :)

Propper fucking old school. My old punting has no fancy shit either - it's the size of candy bar and the battery lasts all fucking week. I have to charge my iPhone every night

If you provided any details to CW / paid by credit card then best to bin the SIM card & buy another.  For cash.  And then do cash top-ups.  Are you still feeling quite so happy ?  :scare:

paid by cash.
that is the right answer.  Hope you gave them some bollocks info on yourself.  When i got a PMob then i was asked for details.  To which my answer was i don't want to receive loads of marketing crap.  Yeah right.  Finished up with 'do you want to sell me the phone or shall i buy it down the road ?'.  Did the trick :)

What a wonderful way to deal with pushy salesmen, webpunter.  I'll remember and use that line!

I have a Nokia 100 which is great, Primitive but did the job and battery life is about 2 weeks between charges. £10 from Asda but they then bashed them out for £5.

I went off for a punt once (and was likely running late) and it wouldn't unlock so I went and got a Nokia 106 (£16) - then the original unlocked when I got to my car. Anyway 106 - bad phone. It has a colour screen, basic camera and you can add a microSD which is nice to store pics of various girls spesh for a plan B. The BIG problem with it is the keypad lock. I can set them to lock after 1 minute inactivity and the 100 works perfect. The 106 doesn't auto lock in a few of the screens. I'm single so not a massive problem there but I like the peace of mind that nobody could just pick my phone up and find it unlocked, lots of girls numbers, pics, texts on it.

Good move OP.

99p, really is a no brainer. My punting phone is an old Nokia, does calls and texts and sod all else, I wouldn't let anything prossie related anywhere near my iPhone.

how is it 99p when you had to spend £20.99.  Not such a great deal imo unless you spend £20 a month ringing prossies?

Also don't you have to top up X amount on a regular basis or they delete the number anyway.

The £20 would last at least 6 months I would think. I still wouldn't spend it all, but you could use some of the credit up on normal calls to people you don't know obviously & then just top up a fiver when needed.

:( I miss my 3210
The longest lasting battery was on the 6310i.  Like a week+.  Had to look online to find the model.  Was great looking through photos of old Nokias & thinking - had one of those & one of those &...

An unlocked basic phone costs about 10 quid online. Basic, lightweight, and can't remember what your dog had for dinner.

To recap: the phone cost 99p and seems perfectly adequate for punting and as a backup phone for emergencies (I need a mobe for work, so I am now covered if something happens to the main one). It's pay as you go, so the £20 of credit stays on it until its used up. I don't have to top it up or anything unless I need to. I think that's excellent value for 99p so I posted to share it with UKP members in case this information is of use to you.

99p for the phone and 20 quid PAYG credit, sounds perfect to me. I reckon you could to the same total at Tesco (10 quid for the phone and same again for credit) but it really doesn't matter.

Key point is it's easy a cheap to get a punting phone - weigh it up against the consequences of a prossie calling your main phone at a bad time. Pay cash and Bobs' your uncle.

Exactly, for punters with a OH whether it's 99p or £50 it's a lot better than being in that situation  :hi:

Whether you're in a relationship or not, having a punting phone is key. It's not just about being outted if you're in a relationship but about the safety as well. If you walk from an escort or issues happen during your punt, all you have to do is throw the sim card away and your life is fine. Always use a different punting name and never use your day to day phone and it's night on impossible for any issues to occur once you've left the escort.

I once used my main phone to book a girl as she was on the same network and I got free minutes. Half way through the punt she complains that the condom broke (I wasn't convinced), she wasn't on the pill etc - great cue for me to leg it. Anyway there was always the worry was going to get a phone call 9 months later  :scare:

Punting is a different life, a different world, and if you want to keep it that way you get a  punting phone and if there's any risk of it spilling over you toss the sim and get a new one, max £10 topup lost to keep your life in order.

In my opinion it's worth paying a bit extra to get a 3G phone (e.g second hand off eBay where I expect you will find them for under £20). The point is that I want my punting phone on the Three network as this way when I top up with a £10 it will last for ages (since calls are only 3p per minute and texts 2p each). Compare this to Vodafone where a £10 top up would only last me 2 punts (I phone / text a lot of girls last minute to see who's free) since Vodafone charge exactly ten times as much per minute for calls and seven times as much for texts.

So consider your network.  Use this to help you decide:

Thanks LL, that comparison link is useful for much more than punting!
