1p phone on sale at Carphone Warehouse

Popular mobile phone and device retailer Carphone Warehouse has announced a pay as you go phone for just 1p, in the Alcatel OT 209 handset.

Carphone Warehouse's offer is for a phone that was previously on sale for just under £1 at 99p, which we first reported at the start of November last year.

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.

Previously, the phone actually cost £4.95 from where it's now been reduced to this low amount but it's unsure whether this is time limited offer or not.

The ‘ultimate bargain' of a mobile phone is available on CPW own Talkmobile pay as you go essential tariff, with 25p a day internet costs, calls being priced at 8p a minute and a single text message costing 4p - whilst calls and text messages to other Talkmobile numbers are half price.

One Mobile Ring believes this is a good start to the year and on a day that began with the highest ever recorded level of VAT being included on goods.
