The second hand phone market in Ji Lin city is a history lesson in phone design, covering everything from the original brick-like Motorolas & Nokias to more recent 3G offerings.

This 8850, 2nd or 3rd hand, with non-Nokia battery but otherwise perfect working order – 250 Yuan (22 Euro). One happy new owner.

OS supports Malaysian so presume its a grey market import from there. Phone memory contains list of previous owners contacts. The volume of data & content stored on phones is growing.
