My phone only cost £7 and is pay as you go. :roll:

If your phone only cost £7 i'd tend to bin it and get a better one :D

Why? I hardly ever use it and it does what I want it to do. I don't see the point of paying money for extras I'll never use, when all I want is something to text with or receive the occasional call on.

agree. my phone is like 6 years old, but it still works (not perfectly i'll admit, but does what I need it to). don't need any fancy features. have an mp3 player if i want music, have a comp and consoles if I want to play games. i'm good. :)

I agree with Tony. I don't even own a mobile phone although I do borrow one (which is about ten years old) when I go walking in the country, just in case of accident or I get stranded. :D

Not much point in ditching the phone, if he uses the same sim card (ie, phone number).

He'll still get plagued.

'Ere Tone. You tried putting the mobile number that texts you into Google and see what comes up?

Yes, I tried that. I often do that when I get odd calls. Nothing really showed up. I suspect they'll get fed up before I do. ;)

If they're so stupid they haven't blocked the number, you should put it into the hands of the police. You'd be doing society a favour.

Pain in the bum letting everyone know your new number, mind.

I've had the same number with about five different phones. I've either switch the SIM to the new phone or gotten the people at T-Mobile to be sure to give me the same number. :)

It's only a "minor niggle", hence posting it here. I'll just ignore them until they go away. ;)

Actually, it'd be great if you gave the number that was hassling you to the Cops, and they rang it and put the fear of gods into the little sh!t.

or if you post the number on the internet, or more old fashioned places - though I don't advice this, it would be illegal here and it's probably illegal where you are. However, it might lower the annoyance levels if you mentally choose homepages and toilet walls to publish their number.

I think you're right Tony, they'll just get bored and give up. Or, you could give us all the number and we'll start texting them.

Batty, how did the appointment go today?

Probably the telly people texting you. Maybe just one text back saying, ' You can see me? How's my technique, am I sacrificing this goat properly?'

I'm sorry for your troubles.

Me too!

My minor niggle is I start night shift again tonight. It gets me down thinking about it. Not so much the work but the lack of sleep, if you know what I mean? Ah well, things could always be worse.
