I'm not normally careless but the other night I made a total boo boo when I put my iPhone in the washing machine. I switched the machine on and as the drum filled with water, a light shone from within which mesmerised me until I realised it was my phone! I emptied the drum and retrieved my phone but it was too late and it's totally knackered. Fortunately the sim is ok so I have all my numbers but I've lost my lovely pictures of Canada as I hadn't backed my phone up since I got back.
I'm lost without my emails and internet on my phone so my friend lent me a Blackberry.
I struggled a bit with it last night and although I could send and receive texts from Beth (she was in the same room) I wasn't able to text abroad or receive texts from abroad and in the end gave up and went back to my ancient Samsung.
I visited my local O2 shop at lunch time and asked for advice. Was there a setting on the Blackberry that needed changing to send/receive texts from abroad? Not to their knowledge!
I'm not due for an upgrade and therefore a new phone for 3 months so am considering buying myself out of the contract and setting up a new one to be able to get a decent phone. To buy an Iphone ranges from £400 to £500, or a Blackberry from £160 to £460 so I don't want to pay that. O2 have a new deal where you can pay buy yourself out of the contact for the price of the line rental (£35.00 per month) less 20% less VAT of 20%.
The big question is, would you go for an Iphone or a Blackberry?
I have to admit I loved my Iphone but Beth raves about her Blackberry.
