Why does my i-phone lose pikkies?

I bought a Nokia i-phone (runs on Android) and I am having trouble keeping pictures on it. The thing is that I bought it because I needed to take pictures (I am about to start house hunting and need to send photos of any issues I come across to DP who is good at DIY, so he can tell me whether something is easy to fix or I should avoid because it isn't).

The photos go missing from teh gallery. These are photos that have been sent to me and ones I have taken. I thought, at first, that it was pictures that I sent to a friend (a pikkie of him and his DW went missing pretty quickly, as did selfies I sent to him and pikkies of him and his DD in the park). Stuff I've sent to my DP and other friends only exist in Whatsapp messages, they've disappeared from my gallery.

I have downloaded the Google Photos app, but they disappear from there too. I've not deleted the pictures - one was destined to be my "Miss October" profile picture, but has gone Puuuuuffff!!!! before I can use it.

Anyone else had this problem? On the verge of popping the phone back in the box and forgetting about it.

Can I ask what outfit you chose for the ‘Miss October’ outfit?
Is it Halloween themed or just autumnal?

What's a pikkie?

Like a Cornish Piskie, only smaller?

Is a pikkie a cross between pixie and a pikey? A kind of leprechaun thing?

Livedandlearned · 11/10/2020 21:56

Pikkies Hmm

CoronaBollox · 11/10/2020 21:59

Look through your phoney woney settings and click through photos. Might have it set so it deletes the pikkies after a certain timeys.

Backup those pikkies from Crimbo last year and holibobs first.

The photos are being dissolved by the tears of despair that the phone sheds when it hears the word "pikkies"

WTF is a Nokia i-phone? And WTF is a pikkie?

@TheSecondMrsAshwell, if someone's sold you a Nokia iPhone that runs on Android then you've been conned big time.
