Last phone in the house that needs replacing - a Nokia 830.

 

Phone is still good, but man lack of apps is killing it.

 

 

 

Can't figure out how to upload an image atm - at work.

 

However imagine if you will

 

An unplugged network cable beside a router.

 

A caption stating - there, now it's secure.

 

end scene

I'd be replacing my Nokia N8. It's my everyday phone, and it's over 6 years old.

Replacing the broken screen but working with screen protector Nokia lumia 640. It took quite an effort to break it though.

I have a work phone that doubles as a personal phone and they're cool with that but if they change the number or decide I'm excess to requirements that'd be a holy online mess to fix.  Having my own phone would be awesome, and one of these ones even better.

 

 

 

It's quite obvious that there are people here with a real and immediate need for a new phone, so scratch me out please.

My 65 year old mum has one of these my dad gave her from 2009.

She does not own any smart devices or laptop/tablet/PC and I really want her to get onto SKYPE so she can talk with her family overseas. Funny thing is she has fibre internet and a unifi AP which effectively do nothing all day except run the vodafone TV and look good (unifi AP).   One of these phones would be most welcome and I can simply show her how to call her family / receive calls.

Looking to replace my trusty Telecom R22. Great battery - it can last up to twelve days in standby mode which is pretty impressive for an Android touchscreen phone.

It's to replace my 16 year old daughter's shameful LG-E425 - A 3 inch screen says it all. If she got this giveaway phone she would no longer be a social outcast and could quite proudly text holding her phone next to her rich mates and not hiding it, pretending she doesn't have a phone or pretending she is so rebellious (to impress her friends) that her mean parents have confiscated her very cool phablet phone forever.

 

And yes, this meme of Batman and Robin was created by me (not the pics of course) especially for this giveaway.

 

May the best-creative-original-Batman-and-Robin-especially-done-for-this-giveaway win!

 

Most humbly yours,

 

Thinkbrig.

I would be replacing a Samsung S3 I9300.

 

I use McAfee, free with my Spark broadband, on all our computers for network security.
