[WA] Optus Prepaid X Lite Mobile Phone $9 @ Coles

140

Spotted in WA, unsure if same in other Coles locations. Asked about it instore and seems it was sold out, label did say "until sold", say have a look around at your local Coles.

I'll be honest, I don't know why you'd buy this phone, but we've all bought stuff just because it was stupid cheap.
Occasionally we get use out of them.

It's a basic ass phone that phones things, it has a calculator and an FM radio. It also may not be any good at ringing things.

    Dirt cheap mp3 player?

      128 mb built in, is enough to hold like 32 songs XD

      It is expandable up to 32gigs and that's decent enough. It'd be hilarious because the card would be the most valuable part of the phone.

    • It also plays movies on that really tiny screen.

      • I was gonna say you'd need an SD card but from the phones screen quality you could compact a movie under 128mb easily and still see no difference in quality 😂

    Would this be a good 4G Wifi Tethering Device (via Mobile Data)? Need something for school

    • wifi? hahaha …

      maybe bluetooth hotspot, it draws less power than wifi hotspot(not as fast though) and don't need to be switched off.

      Just buy proper 4G WiFi modem, barely any more expensive than this and actually designed for it.

        Mitch889 - where is a 4G WiFi mode cheaper? They're all well over this price.

        • Where did I say cheaper? I said barely over. They often come up for $29 at Coles/Woolies on special.

          As another commenter noted, this device doesn’t have WiFi anyway.

    keep the charger throw away the phone

    • +5

      It'll be a microUSB slow charger. Not worth it IMO.

  • which coles ? is this nationwide ?

  • +2

    Think the X Start for $19 is the better deal. That's got a touch screen and 4G so nice burner phone and potential hotspot.

  • +2

    Honestly am surprised to see it have Bluetooth 5.1

  • Can I Unlock it for free?

  • +10

    Dammit, just bought the 13 Pro.

    Not many phones have hardware (enabled) FM radio built in

    • more than half of the phones I've looked at recently have had FM

      • ah but do you have to plug the earphones in to act as the antenna?

  • online still $49. only selected coles?

    • It may have been cancelled out by newest catalogue… I'll see if it's still there later today.

  • Is this phone locked for Amaysim?

    • Works with Amaysim.

  • Take out the Band 28 and bring it to Telstra!

    Seriously no GPS, take the $19 one!

    • Given how overpriced petrol is now, many 7-11 choppers incoming to Ozbargain

    • +1

      Was gonna say that no GPS would make an ideal burner but as long as there's a sim card in it you can probably still be tracked even if with much less accuracy.

  • basic ass phone

    Technology has come along in leaps and bounds hasn't it… amazing. Or is this a nod to XKCD ? https://xkcd.com/37/

  • The 3G version of this was also $9 at AP: https://auspost.com.au/shop/product/optus-x-lite-push-button... (out of stock)

    It's a slightly higher spec phone, and other than not being 4G, is better IMO.

      Thanks for your comment. Found one in local Australian Post. Ordered unlock for $1.10. Good phone for my dad :)
      It came with an expired sim, charger and even headphones! Detachable battery
      I’m impressed for the $9!
      Sadly only English and Chinese for the language

        Nice score!

      Hey not bad. These kind of deals are usually not available online. I must remember to check Aussie Post regularly.

      • +1

        Yes, as great as online shopping is, you never know what's actually in store on the shelves until you look.

        • True but for me only worth it if I was leaving the house anyway. I no longer leave the house to grab a bargain unavailable online but it's good to see that some places leave the dirt cheap deals up online in spite of scalpers.
