Dear Orange,

Thank you for the lovely phone. It's very nice. I like the little camera and I've decided to take odd snapshots of my life with it for the benefit of my audience.

However, while I don't mind how long it took you to get the phone to me, or the extra delay in transferring the number even when I gave you all the information when I ordered the phone, or the unexplained invoice for just under a couple of hundred quid, or losing all service for a few hours yesterday, I do use my phone as an alarm clock when I'm away.

This means I often forget to turn it off (yes - I know the alarm works even if it is switched off) so PLEASE DON'T SEND ME MEANINGLESS SIM UPDATES AT 3:21am.

Yours faithfully
18 lies or Lie to me

They must not like you... they never do that to me. ;-)

Seems like you've had a bad deal so far -- I feel bad for recommending them now, but I've always had perfect service from them.

I like it really - I'm just being entertaining (I hope!) ;-)

Re:

bacony has told me all about what you consider entertainment. You are clearly a lucky bad man.

Was that the tavern sauce story?

Re:

That name was not used. Though it might be the same one. Apparently there was a cartoon drawn about it.

But enough of feeding the bad-man's infamy.

Re:

Heh. It's only really about that if you already know about it, if you catch my drift.

Re:

Well, that and the filename is a bit of a giveaway.

Enoguh seediness. I'm trying to pretend to work here. EU State Aid regulations - yawn!

Re:

I don't know what you mean. "BJ" stands for "Bad John".

Re:

It makes so much more sense now you've explained it.

I too use my phone as an alarm. As I could sleep through WW3, I tend to leave it right near my head.

A long while ago, one of my friends sent me a text at about 4am to tell me she'd just seen a song on MTV. I sent one back saying it was 4am, I was to be up soon, and didn't need to know.

She sent me one back about 20 minutes later to say sorry, and she wouldn't do it again. Failing to understand that she just had.

I obviously sleep deeper than most - I also use my phone as an alarm, but last night I had six text messages between 12-6 and none of them woke me up... The alarm still does though. Hmm

Ah - the SIM update happens because it's a new phone. So if it's any help it's an "I've just bought this phone" thing.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: February 19th, 2004 04:00 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah - I guessed - though as this was number 79 over the last 10 days I thought they might have stopped by now...

Ok - maybe a slight exaggeration.

Re:

I think I got just one and certainly no more than three. If you are getting so many perhaps it is worth contacting them?

Re:

If it happens again then I shall. Hopefully things have settled. I was expecting one yesterday as it was when the number port happened - but I had two at lunchtime then the early morning one.

Re:

See if you'd gone T-Mobile i coulda fixed it for you but Noooooooooo you had to go and sign up with those gaudy shaded upstarts ...

What did you get (I am a phone geek and will make little appreciative noises at you)

Oh and as to the SIM one will be vms set up, one will be roaming and one will more than likely be wap settings. Expect another few if you set up mms or any other remotely complicated service.

And every time you get one try to save it and if it wont let you delete it and reboot

There how to love your phone in 3 seconds
