Well the Nokia Lumia 1520 was a great phone, but lots of things don't work on it anymore...


The lights at the bottom are intermittent


The speaker and microphone work some of the time - so it's basically useless as a phone


But it works OK in the truck, should it get stolen - I can track the phone (and hopefully the truck).  All it's good for thesedays.


And as for the NF-50 vodafone - well, what can one say that's nice about this phone.  Nothing!





Cheers! :)

My son has a scungy old iPhone 5C, the camera doesn't work, and the ringer works about 60% of the time (that's his story anyway).


A functioning phone would be a novelty for him...

I would love to win the Motorola Moto E5 phone, in fact I was the proud owner of a Razer V3 folding phone many moons ago (remember those???, it was the envy of the Star Trek fans in my office cool haha).




If I win the giveaway, I would pass the phone to my 12 year old son who has been having a rough time recently. Last week he dropped his ipad at school smashing its screen and, soon after, his phone (Huawei Y6) was stolen!




He is saving up for the repair of the ipad, and not having much money he tried to go back to the old phone (Nokia 1208) but discovered it’s not longer working because of 2G is no longer supported. Sadly, my son had to buy a humble Vodafone Smart mini 7 as a phone replacement.




The Moto E5 would be a great surprise for him and stop the teasing by his friends for the use of a “granny phone” cry

I'd like to give this to an elderly family member who has been using an old Samsung S2.  I don't look forward to explaining how to operate the new phone, but at least it will work.

Would give the missus my G5s to replace a beaten up Samsung something. I love the moto I have, but having to choose between 2nd Sim or SD is a bit annoying.

I will replace this Motorola E1070.  No kidding, the black beauty below is my actual everyday phone.  It has two screens and a hinge and a battery that lasts two weeks, it's tough as an anvil, and in a few months it will be old enough to stay home alone and babysit its cute little Motorola sibling, the adorable little baby that can only stay awake for a few hours.


It will be hard to part with the anvil, but I'll do it if I win the Moto e5!

My wife is still using a Huawei from 2013. I have been trying to get her to upgrade for the last couple of years but she refuses.  She also complains constantly about how slow it is, and how it will only run a couple of applications.  I can't even get the lotto app on there.  Save me!

I would use this to upgrade my mothers Huawei P9 Lite which doesn't even talk to her Fitbit due to Huawei's broken Bluetooth stack.

As you can see this Nokia E63 is held together with elastic bands - I really do need a new phone and connection to the intertubes would be an excellent addition.

I'm replacing an iPhone 5S so that would be a really timely return to my first love, the Android.

Hugs and kisses.

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
