the idea of a software engineer not being able to fix hardware is not unknown - only last month we had to spend 2 hours on a conference call explaining to an application development team that, no they couldnt load their new module into a specific SAP system in our maintenance window because we would actually have the system shutdown for a break-fix.
We ended up having to say it very slowly, very loudly over and over again
You're really lucky - where I live in Wales (5 miles from the border with England) Orange/EE/Whatevertheydecidetheirnameisthisyear gives me 4 bars of 3G signal (forget about 4G), Vodafone give both me and my wife (on our employer provided mobiles) 2 somethimes 3 bars of 3G signal, whereas O2 gives my wife 1 bar of 2G on a good day.
"the camera is slow. it's adequate. but can't hold a candle to my old nokia N8."
I dont think there are many phones out there that can hold a candle to the Nokia N8 when it comes to the camera. It was (and mine still is) a fantastic phone even if the screen is too small for me to use without having to find my glasses nowadays

There, fixed it for you.
No I'm not an Android fan, I'm not even a Microsoft hater. but having played with both Android and Windows phone I'd rather have the "mess" than all the restrictiveness.
Yeah I had a TyTn, it ended life being thrown against a wall after i had recalibrated the screen for the umpteenth time inside an hour. I have no idea why but mine just would not seem to hold on to the screen alignment settings and would drive me crazy.
It made me swear I'd never buy another HTC device, which I broke with the Desire and regretted very quickly.
No it's the idea of self protection. Again as a former swim coach one of the things we learnt on our various courses was that ALWAYS have a chaperone when dealing with minors or even adults of the opposite sex. That way you always have a witness should someone decide to make malicious allegations.
I have to agree with this sentiment, having been a former swim coach, admittedly to adults only, but I still had a cheap PAYG phone I used to contact any club members. Likewise I now have a work mobile as well as a personal. The work one has no personal contacts on it and vice versa. That way its extremely difficult to send a text that could land you in trouble to the wrong person
Really? twice a day? I often get 2 days use out of my Note - maybe about 30 mins of calls a day, reading about 40 emails a day and replying to about half of them, an hour or so of web browsing, an hour of ebooks and about 3 hours a day listening to music while at work.
If the battery is sitting below 40% of a morning, I find an hour's charge will keep it going for the next 24 hours at least.
