broken and I'm about to take it back to be replaced (for the second time!)

having friends in tech companies again pays off as mates working in 3
(www.three.co.uk) manage to wangle me a 3G phone for three months, 3000
voice mins/mo, 500 sms/mo, 200 video msgs/mo, £50 call credit thru the trial
period for non-geographic calls and other services outwith call allowance,
and if i decide to keep the handset at the end of the trial, I get a 75%
discount.  Rawk!!
