Need a cheap phone
Posted February 10th, 2014 - 9:43 pm by from London, England (Permalink)

I need a cheap phone which doesn't have to have apps or anything just so I can call and send texts. I know the whole SIM process is difficult without Portuguese so if anyone has a phone to sell please send me a private message.

Hi! You can find one at uruguaiana street, it is the place where you can buy most of things very cheap.

Uruguaiana is a huge electronics (and everything else) street market in downtown Rio (metro stop Uruguaiana) where you will find dozens of dealers selling what you want. Competition is fierce which keeps prices reasonable. Don't be afraid to bargain!
