More phone questions

If you are following my story of phone selection I can tell you it got even more complicated today.

Firstly, I hadn’t decided whether to go for a new number and provider or just a new phone with my old number.

Then I had to decide whether to buy one or get it on a two year contract.

Then I had to choose a phone and a provider.

Tesco weren’t much help yesterday and I really wanted someone to do all the setting up for me and talk me through anything I didn’t understand so I set off for the town centre.

Vodaphone were very busy with people waiting, 02 only had one assistant and she was busy.

EE had a nice young lady who tried to sell me a phone I never heard of and, finally, Three said they didn’t see why I wanted a new phone but they could let me have an updated version of the one I had.

None of them had a big choice and most on view were the latest models.

Now I have to compare contracts.

I’ll let you know if I ever change! ( My provider does not have a physical presence in town)

I am a retired schoolteacher now writing novels in Worthing where I live with my husband. After eight locally based relationship novels I have now written a children's story which could be considered a pastiche of Beverley Nichol's works which I loved as a child and still remember fondly. " Penny Down the Drain" may remind folk of " Alice in Wonderland " or " Narnia." but it is set in the 21st century. Our two sons are similarly creative as one is a journalist and the other an actor. When there is no pandemic I am the publicity secretary for Worthing Friendship Centre and listen to live music , folk and jazz.

  1. Whichever phone and/or provider you end up with, you do not need to change your phone number, you can keep it forever. The switch to the new phone is organised for you.


    1. Noted. The boys have complicated matters by offering to buy me a phone. I saw one I liked and then the man demonstrated it and it was all ‘swipe here. swipe there!’ I’m such an old fogey. There must be one out there I would be happy with!

      1. It’s like everything else – whenever we’re faced with the new and unknown, it always looks more complicated than it is, and then we allow our fear to creep in and convince us that it’s too difficult for us.

        Don’t let your fear win. Tell yourself you will not let it beat you. You are in control Julie.
        Get the new phone, take baby steps and learn things gradually.
