I'm rather pissed off at HTC. Perfectly in time for a birthday treat, I was finally sent a quote for minor repair work on my phone three or so days late, simply sorting out the microphone. They offered to sort out that issue out for a nice, comfortable 100 pounds, or return it completely unfixed for just twenty - with charges for labour on that bill somewhere for whatever reason. In another sign of their graciousness they even offered to dispose of the phone absolutely free! This likely meaning carrying out the £5 or so repair before selling it on for £250 or so. For whatever reason, the bill they sent shows charges for a full case replacement (including a new screen, despite the old one having no issues), followed by a partial case replacement (because a job done once is little better than a job not done at all, apparently), coming together to make quite the total indeed for what is likely just a popped microphone.

Three whole months? In the era of instant gratification I believe that is considered to be a very significant sign of dedication.
Anyway, I wont complain because one of the options is £20 worth of Android Apps, which is convenient seeing as my Wildfire S is now sitting under the Christmas tree.
I can imagine that being very interesting. I am still yet to buy a retail app, being the cheapskate that I am. A cheapskate too young still in order to purchase goods through the majority of online retailers and such, at that.
At least I assume it's the Wildfire S. The box seems to be the right size and it was the one I suggested.
That sounds like it should be - let us know. From what I've been hearing the Wildfire S is a great phone, and as it's one of their more popular models I can imagine that it receives a lot of attention from the manufacturers.
On top of these £20 free Android Apps, I think T-Mobile gives all new Android phone owners 6 months of free internet access on their phones, which saves me another £20.
This is starting to sound like an amazing deal, I may have to look into getting onto the same thing rather than this (albeit well priced) risky deal, especially if you plan on using the internet. For just £5 a month for unlimited texts it's all I really needed it for at the time (although, despite it being supposedly 'unlimited' I actually topped the cap on my first month, not since then though). I'll definitely look into that deal sometime soon.
Hopefully I wont be forced to change price plans if I want to make use of there internet bundles.
If you're capable of speaking on the phone enough, just rage down at them until they go along with it. I have a natural aversion to phone conversations (I just find them absolutely horrible), however a friend of mine whom does not have the same problem ended up getting a fiver shaved off of his monthly bill when upgrading simply by continuously pushing and doing so well. I may have to get him to help deal with my issues at the moment. :3
I'll sleep for now, as I'm feck-tired and wish to actually wake up despite my lack of an alarm at the moment (yeah, unlikely to happen, I know), but I should get time to respond to the rest of the posts in this thread sometime tomorrow, in amongst catching up with the icons that I skipped out today.
