Just been on-line to Amazon technical support about the busted phone - superb!  eeek:

Chatted to some bloke supposedly called Claudiu-Florentin who didn't work through a set script of, "is it switched on?', etc. but appreciated that I had worked out what the fault was...  :thumbsup:

...new phone in the post!  cloud9:

EDIT: New phone arrives tomorrow!  Shocked:

Either that or when he saw your name come up he realised that the phone was FUBAR and just sent a replacement instead...  rubschin:

 rubschin:

So can we conclude you wish to withdraw this post?
Got my new phone...  cloud9:

Moto G4 Plus...  Thumbs:

No, 'tis a great phone (shortly to be LL's great phone) but my new phone is greaterer....

And as far as customer service and support goes, I suspect that LL's new Moto G4 Plus will be even more greaterer than the Elephone...

I was seduced by the deca-core processor...  redface:

At this point I should normally have extolled how good the iPhone is

but

Having waited for IOS 11 to get to the .03 'surely they've fixed the fuck ups by now' revision I went for it

Big mistake  evil:

Well summed up here:  https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2017/10/17/apple-ios-11-0-3-problems-ios-11-problem-iphone-battery-life/#57e86087e336

Or in brief: it fucks the battery
Well, whatever nevermind

Just found out that my contract is set to end in december so I'm due for an upgrade in a few weeks.  cloud9:

Time to look at Three's special hidden offers to see what I can try and blag...  :thumbsup:

Progress eh...?  noooo:

It does still amaze me how Micro$oft (Piss Be Upon Them) manage to update a billionteen hand-built PCs made with a combination of premium parts, discarded shite and Lego bricks on a regular basis without fucking the whole lot up completely once in a while...  rubschin:

It's upgrade time so I've been looking online for current and upcoming phones and I found this one. Havent had a flip phone since my Razr  cloud9:



The question is do I have the patience to wait for Samsung to release it over here..

As you can see m'lud, my client is innocent as he only sort of stole the smartphone. The defence rests...  noooo:

Loved my Honor 7 and so far this is just the same only betterer  cloud9:

Got the silver one before anyone asks, the guy in the shop said that for some reason nobody wanted the shiny blue one...  lol:
