Well, those days have returned... sort of. Not the bad fashion and the even worse music, but you can now buy a phone without having to take out a second mortgage. In fact, if you havenít got the money, it would only take a small cash loan and you have the coolest handset available without the hefty price tag!

If youíre considering the purchase of a PAYG mobile, weíve put together a list of the Top 3 PAYG Mobile Phones for Under £500.

1. Nokia N8
The first Nokia phone to feature multi touch, the N8 is the newest and most anticipated handset on our list. Despite the success of the iPhone and the emergence of HTC, thereís still something nostalgic about owning a Nokia. Even if the buttons arenít there anymore, you still get the same old Grande Valse ringtone - probably the most famous four bars of music in the world!

Itís the first Nokia to utilise a 12 megapixel camera sensor size of 1/1.83Ē, the largest camera phone image sensor in the world at time of launch. It has a 3.5 inch screen with 360 x 640 pixel colours, 680MHz processor and runs on the Smybian 3 operating system. Basically, itís amazing, so donít beg or steal but certainly borrow to get your hands on one.

2. HTC Desire
If you want all the best bits of the iPhone without being the same as everybody else - the HTC Desire is for you. Similar in many ways to the previously successful Nexus One, HTC Desire is regularly voted as one of the best mobile phones in the world.

The HTC Desire boasts a large touchscreen, a fantastic 3.7 inches and 480 x 800 pixels. Running on the Google Android operating system, the phone boasts 576MB of RAM and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon so surfing the net is as simple as can be. And donít forget, you can make calls with the phone too.

3. Samsung i9000 Galaxy S
Probably most famous for recently knocking the iPhone off the best selling list in Japan, the Samsung Galaxy S is a little bit special. Named the European Smartphone of the Year at the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) Awards 2010-2011, it was one of the first phones to offer Bluetooth 3.0.

Featuring a 1 GHz processor and 8-16 GB internal Flash memory, the Galaxy S also boasts a 5 megapixel camera and wide touchscreen. Itís easy to see why this phone is popular, and itís likely to continue as one of the best selling alternatives to the seemingly dominant iPhone. And for less than £500, you can get hold of them without breaking the bank.
