I ******g hate people.

Some ****hole grabbed my phone and ran tonight (last night)
Old and about to be replaced but my ****ing life is on the thing.

Yes I know, photos backed up and all.
Cancelled the simm and the IMEI cabbages it even if a new simm is put in.
But **** **** **** none the less 

What do you reckon Samsung S10 plus a reasonable replacement for an S7?
Not going 5G. Overpriced and not widely available and waiting another couple of minutes for something to download isn't going to kill me.
Not like I'm actually pushed for time right now.

Ow that's dreadful. Not exactly the best time to force you to spend more money either. :/

I'm an iPhone user so I can't really answer your question, but it's 3 louder? :)

What you want is an old motorola flip phone, like mine, bought for £30 new a long time in the galaxy ago, and I can lay it down on the table in a pub go to the toilet, come back and its still there. In fact lay it down anywhere and come back a few hours later and its still there, ok, its works but is rc[at]p, so no-one steals it :D

When I opened this thread I very nearly put a 'No I don't want a beam me up Scottie' disclaimer as I knew you'd pop up with that Bandi.

I do actually need something a bit more up to date though as I need to use it for Paypal as a lot more folk are taking the contactless option rather than handle filthy lucre.
Plus I want the entertainment side of it given all the staring out of the window between fares.

Ordered the Samsung S10 plus but with all the faff of having to switch my number to another network and then back to EE to get the decent new account deal.

Ms Police person rang today with an update that basically consisted of sympathy and tough luck mate.
Most low level crime now is just here's your crime number for the insurance and have a nice day. Severely reduced police numbers means they haven't got the time. I'm not sure what the cut off value is but I'm sure it's going up.

So unless it's a government minister's iPhone nowts gonna happen.

That's so s*** that mate.  Were you using it at the time?
Your photos etc. are all backed up yes (wasn't sure if you were saying they were or a 'don't mention photos...').
I assume you just use Google Photos so it's seamless.
Also your Conacts are all Google Contacts too hopefully.
S10+ is a more than reasonable replacement yes.  We got daughter an S20FE for Christmas that seems great too.
I just reluctantly replaced my Mate 20 Pro with a P30 Pro.  By such a long way it was/is the best phone I've had.  Sadly the newer 40 range don't have the Google Apps though.  Can't recommend them highly enough.

Oh, c***s!

No.
Long story but punter said he'd dropped something down the seat so ended up looking for it from front passenger and the phone was on charge in the middle. Would normally have been in my pocket or my side door just bad luck it was charging.

Photos all backed up to Amazon contacts all Googled so backed up as well.

Just all the Apps you have to put back on the new one and the to do lists, reference numbers etc in notes that you wont remember till a couple of months later when you need them.

Were you able to provide a good description of your opportunistic thief?
