Lost phones

On the 29th of September last year stupid allatsea left his pride and joy (in the phone world at least) on a train from Cannon Street to Margate. Subsequently it was reported lost to the network and to her majesty’s testicle scratchers and to the train company. A new phone was obtained, nothing like as laden with bells and whistles but it did. After two months of struggling with the free issue I gave up and purchased a new Android. All was well.
Yesterday memsahib lost her front door keys in the faithfull old Toyota, the recovery of which required a deep rummaging (ooh madam) under the seats (she said). Her key had come to rest in the darkest recesses under the front passenger seat and had butted up against my lovely phone, lost all those months ago. So….it hadn’t been lost on the train but on the way home from the station. It was the one place we hadn’t looked. Cupid stunt!!

Anyone out there in bloggy land know how re-enable it to accept a sim card again?

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.

    Officially, I think you are supposed to take it to your mobile service provider, let your lower lip tremble and ask for help. I think you can also take it to some backstreet types who will sort it out, no questions asked for between £5 and £20 cash (depending where you are), but also no guarantees. Many years ago, they used to say that putting it in a deep freeze for 24 hours sorted out all such problems, but I suspect things have moved on since I heard that in 1993!
