I got mine from Tesco a couple of months ago, it's a Samsung, not sure what model but really basic.  Cost £2.50 plus ten pound for the top up,£12.50 all in, with T-Mobile.

I've met some girls who'd break a bed if you dropped them onto it, but it doesn't make them a better shag. :)

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:

That's exactly what I did. Got a 3 PAYG SIM and a basic cheap Android £30 new) for it to go in. Set-up a new Gmail account and a couple of apps to erase the phone if required. Bonus is that I can use the phone for SatNav, at 1p per Meg of data, a text is 2p and the top-up exists until credit expires. Also has Wi-Fi so can connect at McD's for emails/Adultwork etc. Stick a lock-code on it and if it's ever discovered / stolen, etc, you can remotely wipe it.

Of course this doesn't offer total anonymity as you still need to buy the SIM and register a card to top it up. Not too sure if there is a way of total anon Sim purchase and top-up? Anyone any ideas?

Yes; most shops; CW,O2, Voda etc, offer a pay cash over the counter top-up credit - they just need you mobile number.

Most offer a plan were either you just top-up by about £10 a month for the free texts, or whenever needed, but without the free texts. The latter is now limited, I think, in that the phone is dissed if there is no top-up after x months - it varies by provider.

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

You're right. These quick comparison sheets can potentially save hours and lots of frustration/pennies.

I've got several different unlocked phones on top of a landline and can't say I'm thrilled with any of them. Good phones are a slight liability and generally need a microsim that'snot swappable with a standard cheap-phone sim. I use usb chargers as none of them accept the same charging lead, even same-brand. The wifi and mobile reception on all of them varies - and due to the quality of the antenna, not just the network. There are still places in Scotland where you are totally fucked, whatever network. For travelling abroad, the sims are not only inconsistent (what's cheap in one country is crap in another) so I end up buying local sims, especially for calling within a country. The rates of most companies seem deliberately complex so there's as much chance of getting thebest deal as going to trainline.com. The table is 2013, but companies change their rate plans so often it's still only a rough guide. Virgin have just sent me a deal-to-beat all deals, which, like most such deals, will probably turn out to be utter shite if I search for the small print with a microscope, and Virgin don't strike me as the cheapest even if they claim to be half the price of anyone else.

I'm not a skinflint. Calls to prossies don't break the bank, and punting carefully can avoid being taken for a mug. I wish I could say the same about phone companies.  :rolleyes:

Phone companies today are the equivalent of double-glazing in the 60's: either live with the fact you will be ripped off or live with some carrier-pigeons. :mad:

I would have always thought punting phone MORE dangerous unless you have a cast iron reason to have a second cheaper phone she's never seen before and can't see now.

Do McD's allow access to AW on their free Wi-Fi?

As I  use an old Nokia as a punting phone (no internet access), I could not take one for the team, even though it was an easy one.

But as has been posted countless times on here another punting Sim is all thats needed which are obviously tiny, no need for another phone if thats going to be a problem.

Some time ago there were phones that would support two sims each with different numbers , I tested one from Voda but it never worked
I would be interested to see if those do work

SAMSUNG GALAXY S DUOS DUAL SIM

Dual SIM Functionality
he Samsung GALAXY S DUOS combines high-end performance with total communication flexibility owing to its Dual SIM functionality, which allows users to manage two phone numbers from a single phone.

Bad idea. I'm sure it's slapped all over Mumsnet that if your OH has a dual sim phone there's a reason. Also it's the same risk really, forgetting to switch back, texts etc.

If it really came down to it I'd stick a sim under te carpet in the car or something and at 10-15 a go buy a phone every time you need a punt if you got to and there's nowhere you can keep it safe. I mean really stick it in a poly bag and drop it in some nettles each time and if its not there then buy 1 but don't ever leave a trail.

I top-up my punting phone in cash at a newagents buying a one-off throwaway voucher they sell, they dont need or ask for my mobile number.

Except when the agency (a well known one from a few years ago with an stroppy bitch on the phones) calls you back twice during a business meeting.  :angry:
