Popular mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse is now selling the Alcatel OT-209 handset on pre pay, for just under £1.
The phone shop has the Alcatel mobile on the Virgin Mobile plan known as the Addict Tariff for just 99p, although a £10 top-up is required when the phone is purchased.
The Virgin pay as you go plan comes with a 300 text message allowance for that fee, unlimited web access for 30p a day and a 25p a minute cost for calling any number - mobile or landline.
Previously, the phone actually cost £4.95 from Carphone Warehouse where it's now been reduced to this low amount but it's unsure whether this is time limited offer or not.
Alcatel's OT-209 is a candy-bar style handset, with a 1.45-inch colour screen, a built-in torch, FM Radio, basic GSM connectivity and the ability to instantly fake an incoming call with a click of a button.
The Alcatel OT-209 is also available with the Carphone Warehouse on a contract, starting on a £4.99 tariff with 50 minutes and 50 text messages where the handset costs £39.95 SIM free and unlocked.
