Phone Home

I don't normally get excited by mobile phones. I was tempted to get the iPhone until Ethical Consumer advised me otherwise (check Ctrl.Alt.Shift issue 2, soon come, for more). Anyway, given mobile phone companies are bumping us even more with 18 month contracts (what do you mean you've run out of credit?), that means less upgrades, but on a positive note, perhaps this will stop our gluttony for all things gadget related. Given my phone had started freezing I opted for a spot of recycling - check this - you can get anything up to £125 for your old mobile. You can keep the money or donate half or all to charity. Not bad for a bit of junk that normally collects dust down the back of your bed. Anyway, having donated by old Sony, I've got my hands on the W980 and I'm bigging up the 8GB memory. With my new obsession for talk radio, it's also handy that this one, unlike my last, boasts the FM too. Who needs an iPod afterall?
