I think i said in another post that i saw an add for an upgrade on my phone, and i think  i told you about the fiasco trying to get one, the husband said there was one place that we had not tried and would i like to go try.....Yes said i.....Now this place is a bit like B&Q don't know what the American one is
Anyway we go in and we see a girl behind the counter that looks like she has just sucked on a lemon you know the sort...carries on what she is doing without looking up, to make it worse she does not speak a word of English  ( so she said )
We show her the photo of the phone and tell her we want it in black...Si si ( I've told you they always say everything twice )  negro.......she goes to a cupboard and brings it out,we ask her if i can stay on the same contract and keep the same number......Si she says shrugging her shoulders and sticking out her bottom lip,
I am happy that we have finally got somewhere, .......She goes to her computer and starts punching things in, then she asks for passport, we give her passport......then she Say's something in Spanish we don't understand, but it turns out to be that the contract is for 18 months, we agree to this, she finishes off all she has to do gets a box puts the phone in and off we go.

This morning i turned on said phone and it suddenly occurred to me that she never said anything about the monthly rental of the phone  like was it the same as the one i had or what,
I asked the husband, he Say's he doesn't know, so we look at the contract and to our horror we think the monthly rental is 68€ old one was something like 15€, so now we have got to try and find out what the monthly rental is because i am buggered if i am going to pay 68€
I hope we are wrong because i like the phone.

To be cont :


  1. I always get really stressed when I do something new in techy stuff. I hope you get it straightened out.

  2. You and your husbnd both didn't thinking about the terms of contract?
    Hope everything okay with you...
    Enjoy your day.

  3. Oh my goshhhhhhhh. Hoping everything works out and you get the same price back, but I don't think you will. You know how it is today: the heck with what you want, it's what you sign for, ugh.
