kids and broken mobiles
The young un has bounced her contract mobile and the screen is goosed. It's also starting to screw up in other ways. I don't know the detail, but it's useless and stupid and OMG and Jesus. We're just over a year into a 2 yr contract (never again).
The insurance that comes with the phone (which I thought was a clincher at the time) has a hefty excess. I dunno, maybe I didn't think this through, or maybe I thought people wouldn't bounce their phones around. Apparently it landed on soft grass and cracked.
Anyhoo......the daily grind of useless, Jesus and OMG is wearing me down as it's intended to. I'm wondering if sticking the SIM into an unlocked cheapo smartphone might sort things out for a while.
Is this feasible, oh tech-Lords?
