I need a burner phone for calling, texting and WhatsApping to contact SB’s and WG’s.
So it does not have to be very high spec, my best burner phone was a dual sim Samsung Galaxy Star, cost about £50 brand new. It was as an indian import and was about 4inches by 2inches, very compact, easy to hide and worked well.
Where did you buy it from mate and cos it was an Indian import how was you able to charge it here in the UK?

No but chargers are. I dont know the phone or whether it uses a standard charging lead that runs off USB, or needs a specific charger. I assumed a specific charger as the poster asked how you charge it.

Go to argos and buy yourself a dual sim phone. £50 quid tops. If you want a higher spec pay more.

Samsung phones use standard micro USB cables, standard the world over. You just plug it into a local ac/dc converter plug (they are not chargers) or a USB socket.

Got it off eBay, charges on a normal usb lead, it is a Samsung Galaxy star gt s5282 and at the time dual sim in the UK were hard to get hold of, over the years I have seen many import models advertised but they all work in the UK, if they don't, at least on eBay you have some reclaim.

It was probably my first "smart" phone and bigger than my Nokia 8200, so apps etc were not of interest, now I have really got into using a smart phone, I use Whatsapp, Google maps, Facebook messenger & Livescore, there are a few others that I use, like the Trainline, but they are the main ones.

I still have a few 8200's as well as a Motorola 8500 in the loft somewhere, my first mobile was a Panasonic desktop transportable, it cost £1,200 in Feb 1988 and was a split box that I had fitted in my XJS, part of the box slid into a frame in the boot, the handset plugged into a hands free box in the car.

PS The Samsung Galaxy Star gt s5282 is NOT recommended as a full time smart phone, but is a great burner phone for text, sms & Whatsapp.
