Phone help!- updated

Right peeps, ppl, homies!

I've lost my phone

Firstly bit of advice as i need to speak to T-mobile as i have to pay £50 a month and im not happy with them anyway and my mate suggested say to them i cant afford to keep contract as i have to buy a new phone and they will reduce it to say £5. firstly anyone else had something similar as i cant see this happenning myself and any tips on what to say to them

secondly, i dunno whether to get the new iphone or blackberry. I have seen the new iphone and looks pretty neat however i do have ipod touch & ipad so is it really needed, the main use of my phone is to text/phone people not too bothered about internet but be handy if i could go on CL on it and like a phone which looks good

so any help would be appreciated

Many thanks in advance :-)
John

    I would ring T.Mobile and block your phone to start with?

    I recently bought an iPhone 3G, it's an amazing piece of technology...

    It's really simple to use and the apps and other distractions are uncountable...

    My mate had a Blackberry, he tried to flog it to me when his contract was up, it was good but the iPhone is much better...

    Heard a few negative comments about the i4 but never actually tried it...

    Thanks Redzed, yeah i know ipod phone is good and the new one looks much better just unsure because of i have an ipod touch & ipad which are both very similar apart from calling people so may discontinue either of those

    You still need to phone them, if someone has the sim card, they can run a large bill on your account.

    How can he ring them if he's lost his phone...?

    haha i will phone them, but unlikely they will run up a big bill if anyone could find a battery to go in it or to use the sim card in someone elses phone good point but i have alot of credit so to speak on there only way someone could go over is phoneing the sex line etc. I will call them in a bit just wanted to see if anyone has had experiance where they have dropped to lowest cost? and if so what would you say

    Spoke to T-mobile who are useless!!!!!! said i have lost my phone and they can only reduce to £35 a month and will send sim card out, apparentally cant cancel until January

    took 10 minutes for them to cancel, the lady i spoke to was an aussie and couldn't understand me at all, really not impressed with them at all

    See if T-Mobile will drop your contract but good luck with that. I had to leave Vodafone as I got a work phone and when I told Vodafone I couldn't afford to keep it they dropped it by 1 price increment a month. Basically reduced it by a fiver a month until it got to their lowest of £20 a month.

    Next i'd go to Mazuma and sell your ipod touch - you won't need that if you are getting an iphone and you'll probably get a few bob for it (I just chopped in my old 3g and my 3gs and got over £400 for the pair so that paid for my iphone 4. I have had a couple of signal issues with it but nothing major. It is a fabulous bit of kit and I am delighted with it.

    Tell us the bit where you lost the phone but still have the battery, I'm intrigued...

    thank you swisdom for your wisdom ;o) some great ideas there mate

    Redzed, i dont know tbh i went out with a couple of friends in clapham junction a couple of us started around 5 then before you know it we was smashed by 11 and me and my mate had muck around fight which i crazed his elbow which i dont know how? maybe chucked him, then i remember i had to get train to waterloo east then walk to waterloo and then get train to sevenoaks, i fell asleep on that train so ended up in tonbridge. then had to pay a cabbie £30 i think and then stumbled in doors emptied my pockets and realised i had the battery and no phone! weird considering i still had my ipod touch, wallet and house keys thankfully. I should really learn to be more careful and maybe not take my phone next time i go out on a heavy one, oh yeah got home around 1.30am, unsure what time we stopped drinking and headed home guessing around 12

    you signed a contract, hardly surprising that they'll make you honor it

    I know stuey, just frustrating at least they moved it down to a cheaper bill. frustrates me how you have to have a 18month contract i may look into that when i next get one as i think 12 month is fair

    ok mate...... hope you get it sorted mate....... have you checked ur mums insuracne if she has pp?? When i get my phone i am going to add it just in case

    Never got round to putting what i ended up doing so thought i would bump incase people want to do what i did(not lose a phone)

    In the end i called phones for you told them that i wanted to cancel my contract and heard that they pay the remainder, told them how long i have left 6 months and how much a month it is. they came back to me within 5 minutes said its fine and went through what phones i could have which was quite alot, i went into the store ended up getting nokia E72 which i actually quite like at mo very similar to blackberry but looks better IMO. In regards to paying of previous contract they gave me £210 or however much it was to pay of on a debit card so just phoned t-mobile and paid of. So now new phone, new contract which is cheaper and everyones a winner, thought i would mention on here incase anyone did want to cancel there contract as this is quite good
