Getting my new phone

so i got my new phone yesterday. i got the I phone 7. The 32 gig model. I love it. I had to pay 99 euro for the upgrade. Now I am entered into a 24 month contract with the phone company but thats ok with me, I didnt really mind that. The guy who did the upgrade was really nice. He was really friendly and he tried to get me as many discounts as he could. I asked him if he could put my sim card into the phone for me as that is hard to do. I also asked him if he could turn on voice over for me. At first he said I’d have to take out insurance on the phone which also included tech support. That would have cost me 15.99 a month. He thought I didnt know anything about I phones or how to use them. When I told him that actually I know how to use the phone, and I didnt really want insurance, he agreed to switch it on for me and put in my sim card. I was delighted that he agreed to do it for me. He could have just said no or get the insurance. It took about an hour to get the upgrade completed. There was so much paper work to do. I also had to set up direct debit to pay my bill each month. I really didnt want to set up a direct debit but I had no choice as it was required. After the upgrade was complete I took mom for a coffee to thank her for waiting around for me. She said she didnt mind, there had been music playing on the street, people busking and she was enjoying that. So she said the time passed quickly. So now I have the new phone, I had backed everything up to the cloud so it was just a matter of downloading all my apps, photos etc back onto the phone again. That took me about an hour to do yesterday when I got home. I’m happy with the phone though. I really like it.

  1. That’s great! I’m so happy you got your new phone working! Yes, when it comes to setting up a new phone, sometimes you need to insist that people help you and explain what you mean otherwise they assume differently to what you expect. Hopefully your new phone keeps working for you now.

  2. I have The iPhone 7 plus and i love ny phone. Just a small advice… don’t charge your phone to 100% . Charge it to like 85% and again when it’s not lower than 35… that’s how I kept my battery last now good for 18 months


  3. New phones are great! I got a new one a few weeks ago at the fair. My phone company was there and had special deals for fair-goers. I got a Motorola z2 force (the z3 is due soon if not already out, so good prices on the z2) I love it. Karla won a new tablet by spinning a wheel. It was a great day that the fair, at least until I ate the Italian Sausage Sandwich and had food poisoning all night, and had to go to work the day after feeling miserable… 🙂
