    So my phone has died tonight for good. Because my dog ate it. So now I want a smartphone that can download apps and it must have Sim card support. preferred OS would be Android. The cheapest possible would also be good. as money's tight right now.

    The best candidate I found thus far is this: http://www.airfiremobile.com/Device/Index/105 And I have to find a way to obtain a extra $77 for that. Wondering if anybody else knows of any cheap candidates that meet my requirements.

    Thanks.

    How bout a galaxy 2? You can sometimes get them cheap on ebay. Great for apps and its pretty fast. Umm my other choices aren't small budgets :(

    I'm sticking with mine which is a local one that uses a Normal Sim card. The cheapest one they have is the one I showed in OP.

    Well I got $45 I'm going have to somehow get around a hundred or a little over.
    This requires a Mini Sim and I have a normal one. :(

    Use a micro sim cutter ;) on eBay for about £0.50p, and hmm $45, is about £30 with current exchange rate, I'll have a look and see what I can find might come to a bit more if you want something decent.

    That place looks sketchy. You had experience using them?
    Will look into this in a bit.

    Cheapest I can find them is $5 which is doable so that's a possibility.

    Did a little digging on it and it looks like an option. People complain of poor quality and slow service though.

    There is a tool that looks like a stapler that snips them down for $1
