phone in bog :(
« on: 12 April 2018, 22:34:41 »
I had my phone in back pocket and I went to use the toilet and its fallen in and the back come off - battery is fixed in so couldnt be saved. its in a bag of rice constantly rebooting and vibrating with the screen going funny colours sometimes

so bloody annoyed, been working all day for a friend fixing 2 computers (paid 20 later) and this happens right when ive :

A) got no money to even purchase a crappy 30 2nd hand 3G fone (as 3 sims only work on 3 or 4G phones)
B) right in the middle of moving/viewing flat

so effin annoyed  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

i was working for free.. but he said he would pay me 20 today for doing it (7 hours i was there on 3 computers actually) but hasnt paid as i cant phone him to give him my bank details, told him to watch his facebook messages as i wont be able to phone and I dont think he will go on FB as he rarely does...

I have literally no money, 12 in bank and 5 on me and i need 7.20 to go and view the flat, I need gas and have to pay the forum hosting fee

thanks buddy - lovely flat, cant wait until im in and settled 20 seconds walk from the beach :)

the phone was on Tescos and ive found out that I can flash it BUT it doesnt remove the network lock - so my only options are to either buya tesco PAYG SIM and top up or get another phone, my friend says he has an iphone for me but hard to contact him, think I will just bus over
