Hubby and I both have mobile phones, though we use mine the most and it has all the important numbers in it. It’s the one we give out should anyone want our phone number as it’s the one that is carried around everywhere every day and is always switched on.
My network provider is one of the major supermarkets, and the package I have is a simple PAYG which I have been happy with for over 20 years.
My little Nokia was purchased before I went on this network and people laughed at me because my phone only made and received calls and text messages. We honestly didn’t know it did the latter for almost two years when we finally worked out what the occasional ‘ping’ was. How sad is that?
Anyway, my gem of a mobile went to that great network in the sky a couple of years ago and we had to buy a replacement.
The only one we could get that was even remotely similar for the use we wanted as a PAYG and no contract had a camera on board which I am still trying to work out how to use the flash! Coooool, and I’ve posted some of the ‘flashless’ pictures, like this one.
I should really have used this post as a Monday Peeve, because I get SOOOOOOOO mad when everyone assumes we have the same techno stuff, apps and mobile packages as everyone else. Someone decided today to send me a download which has possibly fubared my phone as it is not designed to accept stuff like that and doesn’t have the capacity for it either.
I sent her a text message asking her to abort, but it was too late, and the app/picture/whatever it is was trying to download into my phone, locked it in the process, and I couldn’t delete or stop it.
We’ve gone through the manual, and this type of problem isn’t listed, so even the manufacturer didn’t include this kind of scenario.
We’ve tested the phone and can make/receive calls, and are hoping it will time out and delete itself as incomplete/failed.
In the meantime, I’ve made a note of all of the important numbers (2 sides of A4 paper no less) just in case we have to ditch it and get a new sim card. Dammit, I’ve just put twenty quid on the damn thing!!
