Yesterday went to upgrade my phone in shop near work. First CC declined then second accepted. BUT the sytem crashed on the last page (30mins later!) and they couldn't complete it.
Checked bank and nothing wrong with card, put it down to system playing up.
Today I went to the shop near home and again first card declined and second card declined. Again checked at bank , nothing wrong with either but they couldn't go any further without a credit card. Suggested trying the internet as its a different system.
At home has tried the internet and the i-phone page won't load (your browser doesn't support this format) but I can access all other pages.
Tried phoning up, explained story 3 times to different people and eventually got someone to sell me one only to hear that they are completly out of stock and won't have any til the end of next week and why don't I try the stores
I got one as an upgrade through Carphone Warehouse and although they didn't have it in stock (twice!) I got them to call me when it came in then did it all over the phone when they actually did call me (I wasn't expecting that they would but then we all expect shabby service don't we ).
Hang in there! They are divine. It is possible to fall in love with a mobile phone
There's a tiny hole at the top next to the headphone socket that you stick a pin in ( actually I think there's a litle thingy in the pack to do it with, but I used a pin. A little section comes out between the headphone socket & the off button & the SIM card goes in there.
First app to download is the Missing Manual - tells you all sorts of things about saving battery power etc - don't know if there's a new edition for the 3Gs though.
Yep should be tiny little hole on the top, stick the poker thing that you got in the box into the hole and press down it should then pop out for you to put sim in. I fell in love with mine within an hour of having it
