Best deal on a new triband GSM phone in BKK

I need a phone that works in multiple countries (as I travel a lot). I don't need any fancy fancies (like camera phone or internet/bluetooth) - I just need a simple tool for communication.

My question is where is the best shopping area for this type of phone in BKK and how much does it cost (in Thai baht). I'm looking for an honest price).

thx

Try the MBK shopping center/mall at the Skytrain Stadium stop. Another place you can try is the Pantip Plaza on New Phetchaburi Road.

As a technician I would suggest you buy a basic hand phone - forget the camera or the G3 features. Doing this will increase reliability and reduce the chance of a warranty claim.

Make sure the unit is unlocked - so you can use it elsewhere.

Also that the power block is 110-240VAC
