How much to purchase a phone outright? ₦

Just wondering how much a mobile phone say costs in nigeria compared to here (just for reference say a phone with a colour screen and a basic camera (maybe a sony ericsson T610) and then say a Nokia 7260

The sony costs $200 (about N20000) here outright (so you can use prepaid) and the Nokia costs $500 (about N50000)

I ask because I'm wondering if it's cheaper to get my dad to pick up me a new phone in nigeria than buy it here (my phone has decided it needs to have a over bright section in the screen and I really can't be bothered getting it fixed)

for those unfamilar with the model number here is the phones (so you can see a picture and details)

it's not the shipping that costs us the big bucks it's the fact they come from hong kong and we have to pay %33 import tax :/

Yes, but what about cost of shipping?

You might want to try checking on eBay... Phones sometimes can be real cheap if you are lucky...

so a little more expensive for the T610 and a little less for the 7260, though warranty could be an issue...
