Spec Me A New Phone!

Hey, well i stupidly lent my Nokia 1680 Classic to my brother while he was at the Leeds Festival, and surprise surprise he manages to loose it on the first day. So not i have no phone. Time for an upgrade as well i think, so with some money he gave me and some that i already have the budget is around 60. I can go over, but i'd rather not since i'm saving up for some PC upgrades. I barely ever touched my last one, but i think i might if it had more features. I like the idea of it being able to access the internet, in a roundabout sort of way. Here's the list of criteria:
  • Sub 60
  • Being able to access the internet, preferably through a wireless router so it's free (does this mean i would have to have 3G?)
  • PAYG
  • Preferably bought from Tesco since i get clubcard points that way

That's pretty much it, as a necessity. Obviously more features would be nice. So i was doing a bit of research and i found the Orange Vegas, which looks good. One thing i don't get about it though is it's internet access. How does it work and would i have to pay for it?

Thanks for any help or advice you can give

PS) Probably needs to include a SIM, i think i had one somewhere but it's gone walkabouts.

Scrapping the wifi idea, i don't know what to get. Out of these:

Orange Vegas
T-Mobile Vairy Touch
LG Cookie
Samsung Tocco Lite

I really don't know. I think i'd get one of the first two as a stop gap then get a used android phone later on, but the other two i'd keep for longer. Suggestions?

If you can - the GT500 in T-Mobile is a beefed up version of the Cookie. It supports Wi-Fi and has a decent GPS chip in it (the phone also comes with a 30 day free trial of Wise Pilot).

It has an updated A-Class interface and a near little stylus that sits in the phone

This is around your budget - alternatively, Orange do the GT505 which is pretty much the same but looks a little different.

Hope this helps!

Probably out of the Cookie and the Tocco Lite as they spec pretty well (Tocco Lite is a little newer though)

Read my comment above on the LG GT500/505
