Talking For the first time ever...

...I find myself liking a mobile phone!
To explain: I lost my last one, a very basic smartphone which didn't deserve the name, and I was reluctant to replace it because I hate the damn things. Unfortunately they're a necessary evil these days. So I got a Nokia TA-1205, keeping the same number. I'll have to phone Northern Rail's Lost Property at some point, if only so I can retrieve my contacts list.

I've received a few of the usual scam calls; on the last phone I had 220 blocked contacts (Who Called Me is a bloody useful site!). But this phone actually tells me if the caller is a suspected spammer/scammer, so I don't need to save it as a blocked contact - all I have to do is block it! Result!

Re: For the first time ever...

Are your contacts not stored on your Google account, if not why not as it makes life easier?

Don't forget to change password.

Re: For the first time ever...

Hmm, that's a thought. Nice one, I will.

In fact my phone has been found and is perfectly safe (in the safe! ) at Man Vic; I'll fetch it tomorrow. Seems they checked its contacts list, discovered a Bolton number - my sister's - and contacted her, after which she contacted me. I gathered whilst setting up the new phone that info can be transferred between phones via Bluetooth, so I'll do that.

Re: For the first time ever...

how did they manage to go through your contacts list? you got an easy passcode or a really common fingerprint / face?

Or no security on the phone at all?

Re: For the first time ever...

Um, no, it wasn't secured...because I never expected to lose it. I have secured the new one. I learn from my mistakes.

Re: For the first time ever...

no one expects to lose their phone / have it stolen. that's the very reason why you secure it!
