Selling used phones and putting the cash towards a new device may have become a lot more attractive today, after Alcatel and Virgin Media announced the release of their latest handset.
The manufacturer will provide Virgin Media with the first stock of the VM202 phone, as well as giving the company a one-month market lead.
A number of the phone's features may attract potential buyers, such as the inclusion of a full QWERTY keyboard and a sleek and stylish design.
Meanwhile, it also offers a compact yet robust case that is tough and not easily damaged.
It is the first mobile on the market to include a Micro SD card, loaded with 1GB of memory courtesy of Virgin Media, allowing owners to store their top songs, photos and video clips.
Virgin Media delivers broadband to more than 12 million UK homes, as well as being a provider of mobile phones and television services.
