    Unfortunately not, they'd blocked off the admin tools pane which was annoying. Ended up having to buy a new one because the work had to be in that afternoon. £6 for a 1GB stick, I felt like I'd been stabbed :\
    That's pretty brutal. Feel for you man!

    Pretty much, I may still right an angry letter to the biology department due to poor organisation in the hopes of getting reimbursed. Every little counts =P

    Getting it on my current contract, my iPhone 4 is essentially dead now and I'd have to wait another 7 months until my upgrade so I'm paying the early upgrade fee then balancing it out by selling the XBox. Works out at about £45 for the handset including deposit which I'm more than happy to pay for, then keeping my current contract.

    Yeah, that makes sense. Not a bad way to do it at all.

    Ah, nice. That's a Windows phone isn't it? :holmes: WP7 does intrigue me, although I'm quite happy with my 4S.

    Yeah it's a Windows Phone. Six months ago I would have laughed at the thought of getting one, but since then my smartphone use as done a complete 180. I used to have about 8 screens of apps which I used the majority of quite regularly, now my iPhone is in that bad a state I've stopped using most apps that are remotely battery intensive, and I haven't missed it much at all. I'm now just after a phone with a great camera, nice web browser and proper social network integration, which the 800 excels at. Plus it's so pretty :ahee:

    I know, means I'm getting the handset for about a tenth of the price once I see it off, so I'm happy [=

    I do like the look of win pho but seeing as I now have a good collection of paid for android apps I think I'll be staying put for a while. Will certainly look at it when my contract is up in 18 months

    I don't think I've ever watched an unboxing before, how can you get excited if it's not you unboxing it?

    Depends on the product really, if it's something I'd want myself or downright awesome then I watch them, I tend to glaze over the dozens upon dozens of Android handsets that the tech channels I subscribe to unbox each month though

    Oh yeah I don't doubt that, it's just I personally don't see the point in them
