What phones do you guys usually get? I mean, something that is cheap but good... How about Huawei? How much is it here?

Got a Huawei IDEOS X6 out of ebay last year and a second battery from mpj, and am still using 'em. Huawei is a not bad option.

What do you mean by "cheap and good"? If you're looking for a good phone to just make some calls and send SMS messages, there are plenty of options out there. If you're looking for a smartphone, with a camera, mp3 support, internet connectivity and other new features, it might be difficult to find something good below 200 AUD. Huawei has some pretty cheap devices, but I heard lots of their devices come with issues, errors and their customer support isn't that great.
