How about this.

1p Phone

Can't get much cheaper than 1p. If you just want a phone that makes calls and Texts. I've actually got one of these and its not a bad little basic phone.

cheers for that, not exactly what i was looking for, wanted one that a bit more robust, but bought one of each for my sisters two lads, just perfect for them,ther twins and birthdays in two weeks so thats there presents sorted.

Samsung Solid Immerse is free on am O2 £10/mth tariff and is pretty robust

I agree re the Samsung. I use one and it has been dropped, covered in dust, got wet and no problems at all. Worth looking at.

I know you said you don't want to spend a lot of money but.....

Take a serious look at the Samsung B2710 - it can be immersed in a metre of water for 30 minutes, is dust and shock proof, and is a pretty nice phone into the bargain. You can get one for around £100, SIM free.
