Buying cell phone in Brussels

Has anyone purchased an inexpensive cell phone & SIM card from a kiosk or shop at Brussels airport or Brussel Zuid train station? My husband & I will be arriving in Brussels April 3. We would like to just pick up an inexpensive phone there instead of going the eBay or rent-ahead route. We'll be in Belgium for our entire trip. If you HAVE purchased a phone from the Brussels airport or train station...can you recommend a specific shop or kiosk? Thanks!

FYI. Our host in Brussels very kindly took a look around the Brussel Zuid station to see what he could find re: buying cell phones. He recommended we buy in/around the train station instead of the airport, as the airport will be much more expensive.

He found a shop in Brussel Zuid station this evening that sells cell phones. You take the exit "Place Horta - Horta Plein." Before leaving the station, there is a shop on your left side, very close to the Eurostarlounges. He found mobile phones from 29 euro (very basic, Motorola). There was a Nokia promotion with colour screen for 39 euro. Prepaid cards start yet from 5 euro. No paperwork to fill in. Just buy and call.
