For some reason I can't put my finger on, that colour makes me feel queasy.

I still say it looks like old stale Bazooka Joe Bubblegum (I don't know the British equivalent to that) and almost makes my jaw ache in anticipation. ;)  But that might just be the color in the photo.

Being the highly educated man I am, I'll say 128.50.  ;D

$42.98 plus tax.  Looks like I'm just getting in under the 24 hour limit.

Pepto-Bismol? Not something you see in the UK so I don't think it's that.

Bubble gum? We have pink bubble gum over here (or we did when I was a kid) but I don't think it's that either that makes me queasy.

I think there is a lurking memory of some kind of medical equipment or appliance that makes me uneasy. Anyway it's an ugly phone and colour to my eyes.

Apologies to fans of the shade of pink and the style of phone.

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut.  It's about time I broke through with a "win".  Thanks.
