Yesterday my newest replacement phone arrived. This is replacement number 3, phone number 4. To recap my fun thus far:

  • Phone 1 locked up with increasing frequency
  • Replacement 1 had physical damage, including the display not working reliably
  • Replacement 2 had worn contacts and so didn't charge reliably, nor could it be connected to my computer (and Bluetooth wasn't enabled)

So now I’m on Replacement 3. I was pretty thorough in checking it out when I got it. I made sure it would charge and connect to my computer. I made sure the Bluetooth worked. I made sure there was no physical damage, wiggling parts or sticking buttons. It is possible that this one is actually new, not a “refurbished” phone.


What’s really scary is that it could be the same phone I started with. There’s no way to know really, at least not until a few days go by and I see if this one locks up periodically.


But thinking positively, perhaps the third time is the charm and this replacement will work out nicely. If it lasts the 4 years that my previous Nokia phone lasted I’ll be very pleased indeed!

Maybe you'll need to start a site to track the seriel numbers and history of those phone - like

W - not a robot... But I guess I've not been mistaken for a robot before. Maybe I need to reconsider my choice of cloths.

Maybe you should find one of those older clunkier ones from ten or fifteen years ago. Not much for features, but I have to wonder if they'd break less easily...
Of course, another question would be if anyone even suports them anymore.
