    My DDIL just bought a Blackberry . They seem to be the hot item . They do everything . Have an MP3 Player, camera, and GPS .
    Geez, I must be ancient . I still have an LG flip phone from three years ago .

    Robyn had hers for 2 weeks and the screen cracked.Not on the outside but the pixels on the inside.
    Had to pay £30 to have it fixed.

    She's too scared to use it now and we were told by 3 that it shouldn't be carried in a pocket or bag.

    That's what i said and there are messages from people on the nokia forum stating that the same thing has happened to their phone but nokia will not accept that it is not fit for it's purpose and rufuse to pay for the repairs.
    I spent hours on the phone sorting it out.
    I even took it to a 3 shop so they could see how new and unmarked it was but as soon as it got to the repair centre they just said it's been dropped or knocked £30 or no phone.

    I'll be ancient with you, Tinker!

    I have a bar phone that was outdated when I got it 3 years or so ago! It serves the purpose, though--sending and receiving telephone calls. I don't even text message--not sure why anyone does, to be honest! :lol:

    Threatened them with that too and they said 'madam there is no manufacturing problem with this phone it is the handling of the phone which is the problem!'

    If it happens again i will take it further.

    Thats the one Patrick got, Krista .
    Taja ~ I'm with you ... it serves my need for incoming and outgoing calls . And I do text, but not much . Takes too long , I could have a conversation in the time it takes me to text .

    I've got LG Viewty in silver. It's a touchscreen and has optional stylus you can also write with onscreen or use a touchscreen 'qwerty' keyboard for messages.

    Always had Nokias before and this is the best phone I have ever had - oh and it looks nice which is the most important thing for us girls :wink:

    I'd gather all the information I can (repeat cases ect) print it off. Get the phone and put it in a protective phone case (which she's always kept it in nudge nudge ;);)) and be onto the store.

    I hate bad customer service and this is something terrible!
    I sound like a right saddo, but I don't like being taken for a ride by big companies who use their power to scare people
