If you buy in phuket towm you can probably get a good deal but probably not at the beaches. Whenever I am in Thailand I normally just buy a THai sim and use my UK phone (may need to get it unlocked?). The last two years I bought a sim from Telewiz for one 2 call network for B300 which had B300 free usage on it.....in other words it was free! Paid B200 to unlock the phone originally but def worth it as uch cheaper to call/text back home.

We had a look all over Thailand for a good deal on Phones. Ended up that they were about the same price as in Oz or just a little bit cheaper.

Do some research on what phone you want and also how much it is. Then you will know if its a good deal or not. But if it is not a lot cheaper better buying one at home in case you have any propblems with it.
