Where have I been? Nowhere really ... on Friday an Iphone4 fell into my shopping basket and I spent most of the day skipping around in excitement! On Saturday by 9am the said phone had arrived ... I ripped open the box like a small child ... and that is where the saga began!
First thing you have to do is register the Sim ... the website wants 14 digits and I only have 12! After 4 phone calls to T-Mobile Customer Service ... and one to the T-Mobile shop ... and 2.5 hours ... I am finally advised that a) they have given me a new phone number and should n't have done and b) my Sim is faulty. I gets in the car ... sit in an hour long traffic jam ... you aint gonna believe this ... the guy in the shop won't replace the Sim ... I have to buy a new one!!!! I ask him to test it before I go home ... he says he can't ... I have to go to the Apple shop. He also tells me if I want to keep my old number I have to buy a Sim from another provider ... pay 25 quid to have my number ported to that supplier and then port it back a day later ... for ... get this ... another 25 quid!!!
At this point I had fallen out of love with my new toy and close to tears of frustration I walk down to the Apple shop! There I meet Leo ... what a sweetie he was ... got me all set up ... listened to my tail of woe ... empathised ... then showed me how to use all the little gadgets! I wish the mobile phone world was full of Leos!
Anyways ... guess who will be getting a letter of complaint this morning!
