'Phone goosed.
« on: July 13, 2010, 08:03:57 PM »
As much as i luv me owld mobile teleohone, even I have to admit that it's seen better days, and it's started acting all peculiar like now too.
Virtually impossible to read owt through the highly scratched screen now, and it seems to have erased all of my pictures sad32:  even though it tells me that the phone's memory is full of them. Even the screen saver has vanished. confused:

So, advice please.
What am I going to get to replace old 'steamy'?

I'm with o2, and they sent me some fancy pants all singin' and dancin' touchy scrolly monster thing a few weeks ago, but I told them it was shite and sent it back (just found the instructions for it actually. redface:)

I want summat with nice big clear buttons, a camara, and p'raps a flip down front to stop me accidentaly ringing peoples sometimes when it presses aginst me leg whilst its in me pocket.

No fancy pants crap with loads of useless features that I'll never use, and it's got to be cheap, preferably no more than about 20 quid.
Got to be able to take me sim card too with no messin' about.

Well?

Swapsy?  rubschin:   Not sure if Growler likes the look of it.  Anyway, here's the spec me ol' chum...

Sounds to me like it'd do the job for you. The face and back are midnight blue which is hardly girly shaver  ;D, but you have a think and let me know.

It's got blueteeth I notice, so it's not that old then?
You used it in the past then like?

Has it got a loudspeaker on it so when I'm driving I can switch it on to 'paws free'?
Would it take me sim card or would it have to be unlocked or whatever they call it?

Shame it's not red like, but s'pose I could paint it like? lol:

Ok. I've put it on charge overnight and I'll see how it performs in the morning. I can't remember tbh if it has "speaker phone" mode so we'll see.
You might be able to pick up a couple of Ruby Red front and back plates  eyes: from somewhere. Or you could of course slap some paint on it!

It's got the box it came in, the charger, spare silver fronts and backs, manual etc. The spot light has been useful for getting the key in the door on a dark night  eyes:

Well, it seems to charge up ok. Think I was mistaken on the "torchy" thing  redface:. Must have been another phone that had that.

It's currently got a Virgin PAYG sim card which I'll take out and then you can buy what you want / need. Spose it'll work something like that. I've never actually done this before  confused:

How's about you just cover the postage?
