Ericsson A2628 Mobile Phone has now been discontinued, though
you can buy Accessories for the phone. An alternative is
the R520m SIM Free. When you buy
a SIM Free Mobile Phone, you get the handset without a line.
As these have never been locked or unlocked, you can use
your existing GSM
chip or we can buy a Pay As You Go SIM from mPhone. . Dual-band
unlocked Handset for Orange T Mobile Vodafone or o2
The Ericsson A2628
Mobile Phone is a dual
band unlocked handset works on GSM 900 and GSM 1800, so you it
works on ANY UK network or SIM:
PAYG (Pay As You Go)
of buying this affordable SIM Free Handset, over buying a similar
handset on PAYG network, is that you are free to use any other SIM
in the future. So if you go to Europe, for example, all you need to
do is insert a local PAYG SIM and the A2628 is converted onto the
new network. You can not do the same form another PAYG handset from
say Orange or T Mobile as these are locked. You would then need to
pay very high roaming fees, if there is a roaming agreement in place.
The second main
advantage of buying a SIM Free phone is that the prices now are lower
for our many of our SIM Free phones, then the the same locked phone
on a network! So buy a flexible phone and save money!
