|08:59 pm - We are not amused.|
I had been having a good shopping expedition today.
And then my mobile phone got stolen.
*sigh* Can any of you Australian types recommend a good phone and/or deal available about now.
Current Mood: aggravated
DON'T get anything Telestra. 'Scuse my french, but my new Telestra phone/plan and the biggest piece of merde =P , and I'm sure it's got sneaky little things in it which make you spend even more, like automaticly sending half your calls on to voicemail. IT'S CRAP CRAPPETY CRAP.
'Scuse the ranting, but seriously. The only good part of the phone is the camera, and I could just get myself a digital camera and be done with it, really. Guh.
I was with Telstra, but that was prepaid, rather than a plan. And the phone was over two years old, so it was getting on a bit.

Oh, that stinks!
Sorry, no useful advice hear. Lots of sympathy, though.
It's not even a very good phone, as all my babbling about getting a new one in December implied. But it means I've lost all my numbers.

Oh, jeez. I didn't think of that. That really does stink.
If it makes you feel any better, I don't think you had mine.
It means I don't know what my own phone number is. Which is very silly, but it's not like I ring my own apartment that often...

Oh dear. But, yes, it's a common phenomenon. I'm not sure Simon knows ours.
Bastards. A pox upon them. have you barred your phone so they can't use it? Can you even bar phones in Aus?
I'm not on a phone plan or anything, so they won't run up any bills. I just need a new phone.
A pox upon them anyway then.
I got my phone stolen 3 years ago; it's definitely possible to get a sim card with the same phone number as you had before, though I don't know if you need to stay with the same phone provider to do that. In any case, when you go shopping for a new phone, you might want to ask someone at the shop about how to keep your old phone number.
I asked, and it should be possible. Which is a good thing.
