Mobile phone

I've had my current mobile (Motorola "Razr" v3) for a few years now, and considering that they're not really designed for longevity I think it's held up pretty well. However, the front screen stopped working about a year ago, and the battery life has been dwindling since then. Last night I (accidentally) drop kicked it down the road, and I think it's finally died the death.

So, now I need to replace it. I've been meaning to switch over to "pay as you go" for a while, and I suspect that this will either be a very good time or a very bad time; I'll need to look at the costs of new phones, and see how useful a discount would be. Anyway, does anyone have any recommendations? I just want something basic that can do phone calls and text messages; I don't need a camera or internet access. I'd prefer a clamshell design so that I don't dial by mistake when it's in my pocket, but that's not absolutely essential.

In the meantime, it's best to contact me some other way.
