I bought a mobile phone in 2005, which I only use when I am trying to meet up with someone.
Last November I bought a new battery for it for £10 off the internet and then just recently when I tried to charge it the adapter/charger was not working. I wondered if I was going to have to spend another £10 getting a new adapter charger. But when Dean last visited he said he had seen a new mobile for £8. So yesterday I when to Carphone Warehouse in the local Retail Park to see what my options might be.
They could not sell me a new adapter, but I was served by an extremely helpful Muslim lady who sold me a fairly basic phone for £5. She also changed the chip over, checked it was working OK, set some of the settings the way I wanted them, checked my balance had been brought forward and showed me how to send a text on it. She said on pay as you go most of the deals are pretty similar and 3p a text is standard for all the networks, so I am staying with T mobile and my old number. :-) I should have bought a new phone last November rather than the new battery, it had not occurred to me that a whole new phone would be cheaper than just a battery.
After the service I got yesterday I would recommend Carphone Warehouse as first port of call for any mobile phone issue.
