New mobile phone, advice please

Postby ChoccyCake » March 28th, 2018, 9:58 am

Last time, I went into the local Carphone Warehouse, I was told that I'd have to pay to have my Sim unlocked. Only it's not locked and I don't want to pay for that, money-grabbing although it's sort of ridiculous as well.

Only the provider's 02 and a nokia mobile phone.
Since 02 was merged or taken over by a French company,
I think that its services have got loads worse.

I am not that sure about smart phones because I prefer to use my laptop at home. Also I am aware t hat I could download 'apps' some could be useless.

Advice please
My 2 very loved cats are Smudge, an 10 year old female, her feline 'friend' is Tommy, a 13 year old male.
They are both black and white.



I will always remember Marmalade and Mischief
also their funny ways.

Your phone would need unlocking if you wanted a different provider than O2, most phones will only work with the providers SIM card.

I think O2 are great.

Poods now I understand but the shop assistant told me that I needed the Sim card in present phone unlocked. That's what I disagree with. It works and I know to unlock its keypad.

Here you go Sally.
This is what you need

There was a young Scots bloke called Piglet
Who walked round his house in his singlet
When his eyes fell on Poods
His thoughts turned quite lewd
Now the clothing he likes are her fishnets
