    iPhone 8 + 256gb Space Grey SOLD

    I exchanged this last week but have decided it isn't for me - I'd miss Face ID too much. This has to be the most mint second hand phone I have bought in 10 years, it is immaculate, has never been locked and still has about a month of warranty left. The battery status is 100%. It is boxed with all of the accessories unused - you really could say it looks new I can trade this in at CPW against a Note 9 for £620* but before I do, I'm offering it here at a breakeven - £630 to include RMSD. It would really be quite a shame if it went off to the recyclers - I have 2-3 days before it has to go, so any takers? Payment by bank transfer £630 to include RMSD *since I have been asked, there is an extra £200 on the Note 9 trade in only

NB Power plug is EU. I bought this on the old PSC Forum£520 to include RMSD Payment by bank transfer

  5. About the smallest Windows 10 Pro notebook I can find. It is really compact but very good for viewing media because of the yoga format. I have used it when travelling with great success. Pretty much the full spec is here, although it doesn't mention the micro SD card slot which is pretty useful:https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-ZA150015GB-10-1-Inch-Black-Laptop/dp/B01M2YOST2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1536349213&sr=8-3&keywords=lenovo+yoga+bookIt is boxed in as new condition.

    Network unlocked UK stock You can see the specifications here: https://www.gsmarena.com/lg_g7_thinq-9115.php I bought this and have scarcely used it. It hasn't actually been out of the house.

  7. Title says it all really, Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Boxed with all accessories (which are unused). Receipt from Carphone Warehouse in box for warranty purposes Titanium Grey colour. Phone was bought unlocked from new but has a 3 splash screen because Huawei allowed 3 to do that if a 3 sim was the first inserted - not a mistake I will make again Screen protector still intact. In a case from new, mint condition £345 incl RMSD Payment by bank transfer Forgot to say that if this is your thing I also have the bootloader unlock code (unused) for this device

    modaco ROM stck in boot loop

    Rooted my 2X, installed clockworkmod Having flashed with a baked rom the phone is now in a boot loop - it switches from the LG startup logo to the modaco boot logo and back again. It refuses to restore from the backup I made - it hangs on the LG logo I've tried baking another rom, but that takes me straight back into the alternating logos Any ideas welcome! Update: worked 3rd time, relief:-))

    I want to hold it...

    Did you get any reply on this?
  12. Same site that charged me £25 to unlock a Palm Pre Plus!

    SF is it really that good?

    Don't think I've ver been called a geezer before but... sedj why don't you read what I wrote about battery life before you try to sound like you know what you're talking about. If you don't want to sound like you're still in nappies stop behaving like it

    SF is it really that good?

    Tell you what. I'm 50, and had my first mobile before 1990, I think I'm now over 300 mobiles (lost count). This is without doubt the best £99 phone there has ever been. As for battery life, my SF was taken off charge at 9am this morning and went back on charge at 11:15 tonight - showing 84% left. OK camera not up to much but everything else is stunningly good value - in case you're wondering, current crop of phones includes an iPhone 4 which has been little used since I got this and applied the Modaco ROM
  15. Finally got my SF flashed to the Modaco rom - brilliant job Paul, well done. Two real questions: 1) Any way to gett he Orange clock on the Orange software - don't know why but I rather liked it 2) any advice on wallpapers - I was reading about android malware and it does seem a bit of a problem - this morning I nearly downloaded an analogue clock, until I saw that it wanted "full internet access" - I can't see how it could need that? Thanks again
  16. That's almost exactly what happened to me. Paul suggested that I check the MD5 checksum of the file - which I did, and it turned out OK, so the solution was to wipe the file on the SD and try again. It failed again, but 3rd time it worked. So I'd concentrate on cleaning up that SD card and trying again. Somewhere in Orange's T & C's is going to be something that gives them the right to charge you if you trash it like this, I'll bet. If they do swap it out, someone is going to try to find out what went wrong, so I'd concentrate on trying to fix it, good luck - and stick with it, its worth it
  17. Strange, but 3rd time seems lucky:-) (Relief)
  18. I have checked the md5 checksum and its correct. So I deleted the tar.gz from the MicroSD and copied the file over again. No different - power on the phone and Mr Android just sits there looking green:-(( Really stumped - have flashed plenty of phones in the past (though only 1 android) but I can't see how to get back from here.... From where I am, I doubt it matters, but this is on osx snow leopard
  19. Bit of a disaster: Rooted no great problem Failed to pick up the tar.gz file. Read through the thread and reduced it to mcri-system.tar.gz Picked that up alright - got as far as the green android and hasn't done anything for 30 mins:-(( Suggestions welcome!
  20. I've tried 3 times to remove the application lock on my C500, but the Orange web site just sits there, having taken all my details, until it times out. :D Any other ways to do it than a long phone call to Orange? - I want to install the freedom bluetooth keyboard drivers

    Can't application unlock my C500

    Thanks for the encouragement - after go #8 it worked :-))

    Can't application unlock my C500

    Yes that's exactly what I've tried - I've just tried again, this time using Firefox - gives me a "request timed out error" - who do I have to ring at Orange about this - or would the developers forum be the best place to ask?
  23. I have an unlocked C500 which I'm using on O2. I've put in all the settings without difficulty, but it occurs to me, seeing as how O2 sell this phone elsewhere in the world - is there an O2 rom for it? Are there any issues about getting the Rom onto the phone that I should beware of? Cheers Richard

    PIPEX POP3 email setup on E200

    I've had this problem too. I fixed it by reinstalling the update for a 5th time! Every time it has appeared to have updated OK, only for problems to become apparent later - eg camera didn't work, MSN worked when it felt like it. The email thing is a real pain, because everything looks OK but isn't, but this time (fx fingers crossed) it appears to be fine cheers Richard
  25. I wish I hadn't even bothered. So far I have had to reinstall the new Rom 3 times, and activesync twice too. Whenever they feel like it, they just don't talk to each other meaning that both need to be rebooted. The keyboard no longer works - even putting the cab file on the phone doesn't work - it tells me its downloaded OK but failed to install. I can't add any third party software either. Good job I didn't want to use the camera - it refuses to load at all The only real reason I "upgraded" was for better Bluetooth connection, but I can't get that to work either - the jabra 200 I had paired before doesn't want to know, nor does my desktop. I've wasted a small bloody fortune in lost time on this, and I'm not sure I'll waste any more shame really - I actually quite like the new display!!! cheers Richard (Any ideas not involving the use of a hammer would be much appreciated!!)
