I'm looking for a new cheap phone that has both FM radio *and* wireless hotspot built in. Would be grateful for any suggestions.
I bought a Nokia Lumia 520 cash purchase from Three - my mistake. I thought that as I wasn't getting it on contract it would be sim-free, but no such luck! Not only is it tied to 3 (gah!) but
1: It doesn't have FM built in (if I'd bought it from Nokia, I was told by the Nokia helpline it would have)
2: the wireless hotspot feature works, but switches itself off after 5 mins if it's not being used. This is a pain in the backside. I want the hotspot to stay on so I don't have to keep switching it back on.
Do any of the cheap Giffgaff phones ( >£150) have these two features (I'm now turned off by Lumia, I think)
If not, can anyone suggest another phone?
Also, I realised that standard giffgaff doesn't allow tethering - I was hoping to swap sims regularly, as I also have a sim-only Three One Plan which does allow tethering.
Supplementary question: I have a Gigabag sim in my mifi. Would it work as 'hotspot-only' in a phone?

Sadly the only bit of this I can answer is the Suplementary one... You could use a SIM with a gigabag as a hotspot in a phone and use it to tether. You could also do this with a £10 goodybag which has a limit on the internet usage. You would also still be able to make calls and texts using credit on the SIM with a gigabag
