I have two mobile phones, sony W810i walkman phones, I am thinking of getting a smart phone, am a total dunce with phones, and computers!! only use them for phone calls really but on my UK orange prepay card I have about £90 credit on it and I get free gb and text allowances when i top up, my Dutch T mobile prepay I hardly ever use, only for family emergencies by phone. aldi currently has a Mcirosoft Lumia 540 dual sim card (simlockvrij) I am tempted, what would the experts recommend?? thanks Laptopdunce

If what you have does the job, why waste money. No one is going to be impressed

well, it would be handy to have a phone that has internet access when at airports etc., as I travel alot, my latest denver tablet is a DISASTER!!! rotten battery life!! and difficult to always travel with a large tablet, hence thought a dual sim card smart phone would be handy, I will NO WAY take a contract phone - EVER!! - but as I get a good gb bundle that I now never use with my UK phone a smart phone I could use "easily" would be handy - plus the fact that all the airlines are now promting me to always check in with a phone, so in the future I think it will be impossible without a smart phone, but I am worried about battery life and it being too complicated for a dunce like me.

what about this phone?? it is currently on sale in Aldi UK and has a dual sim card and is simlockvrij, I only want to use it for (free) wifi at airports and maybe some of my UK Orange bundle prepay with gb allowance - only for a few days of the month am I in the UK, this seems to be a good buy but would like to hear what the experts think - I am not downloading film, playing games (maybe solo/patience card game now and again) only looking at ebay/flight sites/doing emails. thanks Laptopdunce MEDION® LIFE® E5005 Smartphone
