Need a cheap decent phone for overseas travel

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The last time I went overseas I had my iPhone unlocked so I could use local SIM cards, and when I got back and updated the software it bricked the phone. So I won't be doing that again. Can anyone recommend a phone with the following features -- can use all over Europe, has a usable keyboard, and has a map function that will allow me to preload maps so I won't be eating up data downloading map info on the fly (which I believe Google maps does?) Don't care about chatting or Twitter integration or any of that.

Thanks all

I used an unlocked Xperia x1 on my last overseas trip. It was alright and did all the basics (made calls, had GPS/maps, etc.) but it was WinMo and generally just a piece of shit. Interface was horrid and it was probably one of the slowest phones I've ever used.

 

Considering just picking up an unlocked iPhone 4S... kind of pricey, but probably worth it.
