I left for town this afternoon, dressed to face the extreme weather conditions in my waterproof clothing – denim jacket and LUFC beanie hat. My mission, to find a mobile phone contract that will actually benefit my bank balance and no rape it.

After trips to various mobile retailers, including The Carphone Warehouse, The Link and Phones 4U (do the actions with your hands like on the TV ad) I eventually ended up where I started at The Orange Shop.

After going through all the rigmaroles of agreeing to a contract and signing my life away I left with a huge box where, somewhere inside was my new phone.

Upon investigation into the box given to me, I noticed they had included an additional box containing various promotional merchandise for Superman/Spiderman/He-Man – one of those characters. It’s probably linked to the release of an up and coming film. Not of any real interest to me.

I may watch the DVDs if I ever get bored. More than likely though they will just sit on the shelf with the other 508 titles I am yet to watch. Also in the box was a red cape and pair of underpants. Am I supposed to walk around the streets wearing only these?

Anyway, back to the phone. I decided to stick with Nokia as my manufacturer and went for the 6280 model. I tried a Samsung once and I didn’t like it. Like most Nokia phones this once is all singing, all dancing, full of games, ring tones, graphics, I think there is an option where it’ll cook you a baked potato but I am yet to find it. Oh, it also allows you to make telephone calls.

One of the best features of this handset is its camera. 2 mega pixel, almost as good as my digital camera! Now that I have this device, expect a lot more photos on this blog, sometimes from unsuspecting people :o)

One downside, and there always does seem to be one whenever I buy anything, my phone is yet to be activated. Therefore I cannot use it to call or text anybody or receive calls and messages. C’mon Orange! Sort it out! My number is 07816 9… :o)

Here are a few photos I took using the camera.

The view from my bedroom window.

This spider scared me greatly. I took this photo from a safe distance using the zoom facility.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
