I'd like to replace my wife's Moto G.


This is a network security device called a "firewall". It works because the electrons find it scary.

I really am going to replace my work supplied iPhone 6s. I have given it a fair go for about three months now but I really hate the OS. The phone itself is great and if I could put Android onto it, I would.


We're already with Vodafone so getting one of these phones would be so cool!

Replacing an HTC One M7 which seems to be on its last legs.


It has served me well since 2013 though.

Would (regretfully) replace my Microsoft 950... still love the phone, but the battery is failing and apparently they are made of unobtanium  :-(

My phone is not as old and my situation is not as desperate as some posts I've read. But I'm still in for the prize.


I'd replace my Sony Xperia Z2 which has lost one of the SIM contacts so it can't do phone stuff. It is cracked front and back (the glass phones just slide off anything) and the magnetic charger connector fell out yesterday.

Replacing a Lumia that's decided it's going to keep trying to do a Windows upgrade, but never quite gets there, and also appears to forget contact names periodically. It has the battery life of a short sneeze.

I have an eye-wateringly, rage-inducingly awful old Huawei Ascend that I need to replace. Then I can remove the battery and joyfully go all "will it blend" on its carcass. (I'm going to be travelling soon, and I think a more trustworthy travel phone might be in my best interests)

My wife and I both have the Samsung Galaxy S3. Nice phone but now stuck on Android v4.3 as there is no more updates available for them.


One of us would be smiling, if we were lucky.  :)

I will be replacing a Vodafone Smart Prime.




This photo is definitely related to security, can you guess how?
