If you are looking into buying a real cheap mobile phone, here is a great alternative for you this christmas. Carphone Warehouse has introduced a $1.60/Rs. 71 mobile phone made by Alcatel. The phone is the cheapest pay-as-you-go mobile phone ever.
The Alcatel OT-209 is a simple, lightweight phone that makes it easy to stay in touch. It weighs only 65g so can be slipped into any pocket.
It has large, separated buttons and a clear, bright display. With a built-in FM radio and mobile games, this handy phone will keep you entertained on the morning commute. It takes just 2 hours to fully charge the handset, and one charge gives you up to 400 hours of standby power.
Customers, who are not tied to an expensive contract, will be connected to the Virgin network, the Daily Mail reported.
The only catch is they will have to buy 10 pounds of credit to make calls. There are no more fees other than the cost of making calls and text messages.
Other Features include:

If your mobile phone has a built-in speaker you can use it to have
hands free conversations or share music with friends. (Dependent on
your handset's features)
Text messaging - also known as the Short Message Service (SMS) -
lets you send and receive messages on your mobile phone. A single text
can contain up to 160 characters, although some phones can combine
several texts into a longer message.
The iM600 is fully compatible with iPod models that have the
alarm clock and sleep timer features.
USB capability allows you to charge your phone from your computer
and, with WiFi, use as a modem.
