How about this.

1p Phone

Can't get much cheaper than 1p. If you just want a phone that makes calls and Texts. I've actually got one of these and its not a bad little basic phone.

I agree re the Samsung. I use one and it has been dropped, covered in dust, got wet and no problems at all. Worth looking at.

I know you said you don't want to spend a lot of money but.....

Take a serious look at the Samsung B2710 - it can be immersed in a metre of water for 30 minutes, is dust and shock proof, and is a pretty nice phone into the bargain. You can get one for around £100, SIM free.
