our shiney new samsung galaxy s3 phones should be here tomorrow, I'm very happy.. It had a bigger screen, so using the forum should be a little easier. Especially now the eyesight is a bit worse..
We got a good deal too. I like the tarrif we are on now as we get £240 per month to spend however we like.. It's £35 a month, but we got the phones free, and back then when we got them they were meant to be £300. Sadly our tarrif no longer exists. However, we've managed to get the new phones for nowt, 2000 minutes, unlimited calls to other t mobile numbers, unlimited internet, unlimited texts and 50 photo messages per month too..
They were adamant at first that they couldn't give the phones for nowt and they couldn't give any photo messages.. Janet said cancel both contracts now then.. They changed their mind fairly quickly lol

I've just got to get all the info, contact details, photos, music etc into the pc now so I can swap it over straight away... Lol
Kept the same number too, which is great cos I've just started to remember it :lol:

    thanks folks.. DD, I'll give you some tips when the time comes lol
    Karen, you won't miss the blackberry for long, it'll just fade from memory once you start enjoying the new phone :D
    Mell, I've given samsung a heads up on how hard n northern I am, so they've made this one from krytonite, kevlar AND granite.. I'll still go steady with it though, just in case lol..
    Julie, no sign yet hun..
    Wish he'd hurry up.. :lol:

    I love my Galaxy S III Only had it on Thursday and have spent all weekend learning about the things it can do! I reccommend you got to the samsung page and download the manual for it as it explains everything it does as you don't get a proper manual! I had the blue and my OH had the white. You can get these cool covers for it on ebay for 99p reccommend you get one of those as well as it protects the phone and for 99p you can't go wrong! I'm still learning all the things it can do! We will have to to swap things we learn about it! I'm on 3 contract!

    still not here :roll:
    I could do with the distraction too, in a lot of pain today..

    Bubba, I've had the galaxy s for two yrs now, which will help in using the new one I'm sure.. Personally I never read instructions, I much prefer to just mess and learn along the way lol.. I found so many things on this one that my pal with the same phone who had read the manual didn't know about lol
    Happy phone using :D
    :lol:

    Tony, I've read through this thread now and as a woman, I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed you've missed out a majorly important bit of detail...WHAT COLOUR IS IT??
    I too am not a manual reader, you do discover more fiddling about and then a month later you get the added bonus of finding something new and unexpected by accidentally pressing something, far more satisfying!
    Hope it arrives soon and gives you that much needed distraction. LV xx

    hi all.
    No post as yet :roll: :cry::cry: :roll:
    Janet is home now and has been on hold for a while now lol..

    Right, I'm trying to remember the process of setting the phone up.. You do have to set up am email address for the full phone use, apps etc.. You could always log into a current email address through internet on the phone? Eg, launch internet, go to the provider.. Hotmail or whichever, then just log I in..
    Sorry but I can't remember how to set the email up on the phone :oops:


    I can hear half of the phone call, sounds like they're messing us around a bit... No stock apparently, bull...t if you ask me..
    There will be Hell to play.... :x

    Our last contract was a 24month one, so we have waited 2yrs, I am sure another few days will be ok.. I am just angry at them saying the phones would be here yesterday :roll:

    I thought this was a spam message at first, advertising phones!

    I got a 2nd hand iPhone yesterday and don't know how to use it, I heard a noise and looked in the lounge, my two year old (28 months) grandson is sat on the settee with a Thomas the Tank engine video running on it, how on earth did he manage that?
