    think latest samsung unlocked is simerlypriced

    Inherited undamaged from daughter unlocked
    Via O2 while in contract

    Running on giffgaff£10' goody bag

    couldn't of got one cheaper if I'd a nicked it
    Had it a year and it fell off the table
    Apparently it was my fault
    leaving it in the middle of the table

    While mrs [STRIKE]ocd[/STRIKE] mrs t was rearranging the table mats
    As it was in the way so had to moved to the edge:Eeek:

    Then the words were uttered what was that noise
    Me my phone probably
    Yep it was :Angry:

    Just when I had nothing to worry about oh well:Doh:

    Yip changed the battery in my old I phone 3 gs
    Took nearly 40 minutes to watch the tube clip
    Our broadband was so slow and kept buffering

    Only took 10 minutes to change the battery
    Strange that they attached the battery to the
    Back of the phone case and you had to take every thing out
    Replace it

    And on the I phone4 it's two screws and a push:Blush:

    Yes, I know what they cost.. done plenty of looking ..

    hence my using my old Nokia after giving my BB a 40c wash :Doh:

    for that money you could buy a decent lappy

    Check out these guys www.ifixrepairs.net or 01273567184/07788151022

    They are in Brighton and I had my iPhone 3GS back and new screen replaced for £60.

    They use genuine apple parts.
