Disposable Cell Phone for 2 weeks inThailand?

Maybe not exactly disposable, but something cheap to use for 2 weeks in Thailand
maybe pre-paid minutes, or something on that order and throw phone away when done? Someplace near Soi 2 on Sukhumvit.

You can buy & sell used GSM phones at MBK on the 4th floor. Buy one for about $40, and sell it back for about $25.

I recommend DTac Happy for a SIM card. You just buy the minutes at any 7/11. For about $10 you should have enough minutes to use in Thailand and call home a few times.

You know guys, you just simply rent a phone from the DTAC booth at the airport when you arrive, and drop it off when you leave.

Michael has got it. As you exit baggage claim look for the booths just outside the doors. They rent cell phones for quite cheap.

Yes - that's when about 50% of the long haul flights land.
