Prepaid phone maybe locked up by Telstra.
C & C or + Shipping while stocks last.
I'm assuming some/most are 2G which won't work in Australia.
Would be surprised if they didn't work considering JB HiFi is the retailer.
Boost Tango $9 3G - 3.5 inch (480 x 320) Android 4.0.4 lol
I gotta say, I'm impressed. This phone is at least 5 and a half years old
And works great as a GPS tracker. Cheapest I found
Where did they find this old stock?
Huawei Y530 $99 (512MB RAM, 3G, Android 4.3) sold for less over 5 years ago!
Telstra variant, locked to Telstra on 3G… which is being turned off
Mine @$79 died years ago!
Someone at the warehouse must have found an unopened container of phones from years ago….HTC Desire! Wow
Yah got an LG L40… wait it should have been LG V40 :-(
I didn't think they could sell NEW Android 4.0.4 (released March 2012) phones any more.
They won't run many apps if any at all.
They'll run older versions of most of the essentials, not to mention most of your socials run better in browser 9 times out of 10 anyways. Hell, the best thing about these older ones is Facebook usually allows you to access messages via m.fb with little to no workarounds like I have to on my more modern phones.
Maybe good as a Xbox motion controller?
Some games like Just Dance you load an app into your phone and use it as a motion controller. I don't trust my kids to dance with my phone, but $9
Also maybe can use for 7-11 lockin?
Great. That's Christmas sorted. Thanks OP.
Worth mentioning none of the Nokia button phones are actually a decent price. I was looking to replace my 3310 after "someone" threw it in a pint at a gig a few months back and the speaker died on it. Disappointed.
LG V20 anyone $249
Good find scoobie. Its a great phone back in the days
I see they still have the Nokia Lumia which are basically useless as windows phone services are dead including the app store.
:( bugle plays in the background
still the best smartphone user experience even after all these years
RIP lumia 1520
I did read somewhere that if reception doesnt work when you buy a phone they have to compensate you/refund you… i half followed it up when one of my phones stoped working due to the frequency changes about 2-3 years back.
if reception doesnt work when you buy a phone it's "not fit for purpose" (use as a phone), so ask for a refund under ACL.
These phones should work in most locations with reception.
The issue is how long they will still function as a phone as the 3G networks shut down.
If network is not available much later - unlikely store will refund. Closure of 3G service was announced long before this sale.
Telstra offered free 3G phones to customers when the 2G shut down. There were still Deals here for 2G phones!
Recently many of us were given free 4G phones when Telstra shut down part of the 3G network.
And some of these phones are ancient - so many apps won't install.
Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware.
Better to do your research than being caught with a useless phone! It's less hassle than having to complain.
Does anyone know which "Prepaid Nokia Feature Phones" were available for $9?
