Help I can't cope. Tesco will sell me a phone. I cannot really find out how much it will cost. I do have a phone. It does not charge up well. Also the calls are really expensive now. Pay as you go. TMobile. I can't afford to use it. I would like to keep the number just cos I am old fashioned. I suppose it does not really matter. So do I get a pay monthy for £7.50? That is OK. But if I drop it down the toilet, will I have to pay £7.50 for 2 years? Or do I get a pay as you go - cheap option - but how much will it really cost? We just helped out kid get a new car. She remarked that her old car was worth less than her phone. Her new car is worth less than her partner's mobile phone. How strange is this? She pays £20 a month for her phone. I pay nowt at the moment. I just use the land line. Which costs so much a month but is never used except by people in foreign climes that want to cut off my internet. This is bizarre. We pay for the land line which is never uses except I do call out on it. It costs quite a lot with BT. Mr Nell has a mobile phone so the kids tend to ring him. I am not sure I should be out on my own. I am finding the world too complicated. I need a Complexity Consultant.
