    You have to keep telling yourself 'not my concern', but if you know people you just can't help but think of them.
    8 years on and when my assistant manager died I have had dozens of messages about it, I had to go back into work mode to organise!!
    Concentrate on eliting (SP?), it saved me in dark times.
    There is another world out there away from work, I could have gone on for another few years but I eventually played the sick card, and haven't regretted it.
    OK we can't have first class holidays in exotic climes, but I have my health, my sanity, my family and friends... what more do I need?

    On this link it says has NFC

    But on this link
    http://www.phonemore.com/alcatel-u5-5044d/specs/3493
    Says doesnt have NFC.

    So are argoose telling porkies
    Anyone else got this phone and does yours have NFC?

    I am really sorry for any inconvenience and hassle . I went by the description on the Argos website which explicitly said this model does have NFC (I did not mention those that did not mention NFC explicitly - it took ages as there isn’t an easy way to search models with this feature!). Has the activated account got the game showing? If yes, at least you have that ready for getting a phone with NFC.

    Yes you should be able to return this to store as it does not have the feature you bought it for which is explicitly mentioned on their site as included in the specification.

    I am really sorry to have misled anyone - the U5 4g did say NFC is on this phone .

    Good Afternoon All

    Not been around much lately, but have read all your posts, which keep me entertained and informed.
    Have a nasty chest infection and cough, but hopefully it will sort itself out.

    Have booked BG to "fix" my heating tomorrow. Found I have a very old service contract, that's no longer available, costs me 4.00 per month. then a 50.00 call out charge, which includes all work and parts. Fancy forgetting about that.
    Boiler is only staying on for a bit and then switches itself off, so house not getting above 13 degrees.
    Last firm, through emergency house insurance told me it was the thermostat, so they disconnected it and sent me an estimate for having a new one fitted, but makes no difference.
    BG will probably tell me system is obsolete and need a new boiler, we will see.

    A very belated Happy New Year to you all.
    Hope it's a sweet one, filled with love, happiness, good health and plenty of glitches.

    I used to have this contract and they replaced up to four parts free ...I just acted silly and they replaced some then found they had to send out for more.
    The next day a different guy came with the extra parts but it didnt sort it so I made him tea and told him that I was promised it would work and couldnt pay for any extra parts.
    He agreed to replace the whole circuit board, electrics too for no extra money and was really lovely about it.
    My boiler is absolutely ancient and still going strong nearly five years later, so hope you get yours sorted too x

    I need to hand back my badge and make huge amends. Someone a few days ago asked about where to pick people up from Manchester airport. I was struggling with RL and couldn't remember enough detail to help, especially as I am dyslexic with numbers. But I did an airport run yesterday and worked hard at remembering. The best and cheapest way of picking someone up who is arriving at Terminal 1 or 3 is to ask them to go to Terminal 1 Departures A. I can't find information online about the difference between A and B, but the website drop off directions seem accurate for A:
    • Leave the M56 at Junction 5 and follow the signs for Terminal 1.
    • You will see the 'Hilton Hotel', followed quickly by the 'Clayton Hotel', on your left hand side.
    • Take the ramp to the left and enter the car park under the 'Drop Off' sign on the left hand side.
    The person waiting needs to stand on the pavement so that they are facing the cars coming up the ramp. You park in one of the bays and they leap into the car. I tend to time it so that the person being picked up is there before me, but if necessary, you can, with the help of your sat nav, drive off and then go back and try again. While it is usually very busy when I need to drop someone off, it has never been very busy when I pick up I guess I have been lucky.

    In the multi-storey car park you can park for 30 mins for 4. I only did that when I was picking Mum up and couldn't trust her to find her way to the departures drop off area and that was ages ago.

    I'm sorry this wasn't in time for whoever needed the information but may help in the future.
