Where did you buy your phone?

Looking for some suggestions on where to get smartphones on the cheap. My only requirement is that it be waterproof and work on PM.

Amazon.ca, their line of Umidigi phones give good bang for the bucks paid. my Son in Law buys off of Kijiji, and ebay. however you have to be careful with that. The phone may be stolen, so make sure that its unloced.  The U after the model name indicates that it is.  Also, use the see if your phone is compatible link to make sure it is - https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/bc/get-started

I will add to this third party retailer list with OEM options like Samsung stores and OnePlus.  @ashleyskye , if you provide some additional parameters the community can help with narrowing options.

Decent price on the Pixel 2 at Amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/Google-Pixel-Unlocked-Certified-Refurbished/dp/B07F18GCQK/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=...

Only thing is it's water resistant, not water proof.

It will be hard to find a cheap phone that is waterproof unless you go used. Catapillar phones might be worth having a look at as they are all waterproof and built tough. The better the model Catapillar phone the deeper the water it can handle and the longer it can stay in it.

 

This one here is a middle of the road one for CDN $444.92 and it can handle Up to 2m for 60mins and works on Public Mobile.

Amazon has some of their newer models as well such as the S60 for a little more money which will handle 5 meters for 60 minutes:

@ashleyskye  I have a Galaxy Note 4, iPhone SE and Samsung flip phone (SGH C414). None are waterproof but they are what I have and all work on PM.

I have an Umidigi phone and I love it. Not sure if it is waterproof but it works great and was cheap. Before that I always had Samsung phones and even if my next phone isn't an Umidigi I can't imagine going back to the Samsung version of android with all those stupid extra Samsung apps you can't delete.
