These halfords cards are doin my nut , I have used it a fair bit and saved money which is good but it takes them 30 mins of phoning about and running back and forth to managers etc to sort it out ,makes me abit uncomfortable using it as I get treated as though I made it myself at home and the quee ends up being a mile long waiting for me to get my £2.50 off lol

I have not been refused yet which is good but still....................

I find myself not using it because of the hassle

People on the tube, or rather people who aren't in the tube but feel they have an absolute right to be on the tube, even if there isn't room. In fact I'm going to expand my rant to just the tube, actually no, Londoners in general, in fact EVERYTHING south of Watford Gap, oh and rip off taxis, £12 for 3 miles! Oh and effin Nandos, tried that the other night as everyone raves about it, muck, slop doesn't even describe it my dog wouldn't even eat it, I wouldn't give it to him or even my worst enemy. £18 for a chicken wrap that tastes like **** but you can't tell because it's so !Removed! hot you cant taste it, garlic bread like card board and cold chips, when i complained the waitress said "I am sorry about that" and walked off, you pay up front so what does she care. It's crap don't eat it eat proper food

Had a bad day getting out of London, on last leg though and sat in Euston waiting for my train and all will be good with the world.

Just smashed my phone, never managed to break one in all years of phone ownership and done two within 14 months. Still if it was an iphone would have broken as soon as it saw the floor. Had a year of the baby launching it around just pisses me off

I got an iPhone and I've got a military grade case for it water, dust, vibration and impact resistant, even tested it (not deliberately I might add) today by dropping it down a flight of concrete stairs and watched it bounce all the way down and off the end where it fell about 8ft further before bouncing on the concrete floor below, I thought that was it being an iPhone. But it's completely unscathed. Not even the case suffered. Best £20 I've ever spent. Sorry to hear you weren't so lucky.

Before the last android update I could use the phonebook and everything through the stereo now it won't sync so need it mounted so can dial people plus it doubles up as my dash cam, may just invest in a proper one come jan.

My iphone may be crap but at least it fits in the cradle in the case and still plugs into my radio, and all my apps and phonebook work perfectly (until apple do their next round of fixing things that aint F*****g broken). :)

Yep, fixing all the stuff that ain't broke, breaking the stuff that worked and forcing you to empty your entire phone so you can do the update you didn't need or want.

Only saving grace is when working the iPhone is actually very good

Press and hold the off button and menu button for about 15seconds it does a forced reset. You might find its better after that

tried that. I'm just getting the apple then it goes off then I get the apple again then it goes off then I get the apple again, I wish I could change the logo to 2 fingers and send it back to them. :D  It's not even connecting to my pc with the cable symbol when I plug it in.

It's an iOS system crash, there is a way of rebooting it even if the iOS install is corrupt. If you search on apple support you'll find it

i'm having to restore the ios but apple forces the update with the latest ios that may not be supported by my appradio in the scooby. APPLE YOU B******S. 1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10. and relax.

Ah, frustrating, I wonder if there is a way of reverting to an older update once it's up and running so you can sync?

BLACK FRIDAY & BOXING DAY SALES 

 

Sad !Removed! plan to go shopping on these days  :angry: Boxing day gets my back up more than today but still fighting to get some crappy deal and queuing for hours to be the 1st to get crushed. I feel for the poor F@ckers that are forced to work on these days for the greed of others  :angry:
