I am using my SO's old Samsung Galaxy Ace3 for more than a year after my 3 year old S3 screen shattered. This Ace3 also switches off all of a sudden when it's battery reaches below 30%

Time to move to a new phone is long overdue.

My second hand nexus 6p took a tumble over the weekend... I tried to jump a small puddle and the phone fell out my pocket and landed face first. The worst thing is I only had it for 2 months! cry

Been trying to find the Motorola Razr that was being used until 2014 for the picture.  That family member now on a pretty Lumia 735 but obviously finding the Windows Phone death more and more restrictive..

Would love an upgrade to my old Moto G. I now have it as a backup phone after inheriting my daughters 6s. Still fires up - just a bit slow.


I'm feeling lucky........

I would like to replace my old man's broken phone. It's a cheap smartphone with a cracked screen, but still works - mostly. Fairly often the phone will ring, but, the phone can't be answered as it stops responding. Would be good to be able to give him one that works.

This old Nokia was good in its day, but times have changed. Texting with this is too hard for my older hands and eyes, and a new Motorola with a wonderful battery life would be a dream. Like the phone,all good things come to an end, and this  phone is  too old to continue   in our modern day technology.

If I won I would probably give the phone to my sister. She has been using an old Nokia for at least 10 years, if not longer. I feel she needs to enter the world of the smartphone and this would be the perfect way to do it :)

And the winner is.... @xlinknz who will receive his phone some time this weekend, when I drive around the suburb and drop the phone on his mailbox.
