    Check out MBK shopping centre in Bangkok, it's the best place in the country for mobile phones. The whole of the 3rd floor (although for some strange reason it is referred to it as the 4th floor) is dedicated to mobile phones and similar gadgets.

    The norm is to but them without a contract so there are literally hundreds on the market. You can buy new or second hand Nokia 2360 or something like that cost me 3600 baht last week. Very flat thing with camera and video etc....
