    The contactless is in that space to the right of the keypad - usually, but not always, marked with the contactless sign.

    Thanks. So to the right of the keys, if there's no contactless sign is there something else to indicate something's under the plastic?

    I'm beginning to think I won't be able to find a compatible atm, looked in town today and they all looked like my previous photo.

    Could anyone post a pic of a 'right' atm?

    Argh - Muller fail. Despite me arranging groups of 5 different flavour yoghurts it has gone through as 1 x 68p and then 11 @ 68p. If I were lucky the hidden one would be the first one (1x) but it's irrelevant as I ended up then with 7 different items - including some nakd bars.

    On Arg0s it says PAYG phones have to be bought with a 10 top up, but there doesnt seem to be anything forcing you to when you order for fast track collection?

    Has anyone bought from there and walked away with the phone without a top up?

    Good afternoon everyone

    Having trouble uploading photo but someone in front of me had bought a single size duvet set blue stripe & went through @ 25p
    So I went to have a little look. The double went through @ 90p No King size left so couldn!!!8217;t check price. Still full price on the sell.

    Similar to current one on the George website b/c ending 387299

    Hope someone else finds them.

    Does the phone come with an empty sim?

    I have my sim that I use for my o2 app on my normal phone, could I use this? Or woud it confuse my normal iphone?

    I have a spare visa - could it be a debit card or a credit card?

    why are people buying the more expensive phone from argos rather than the cheap O2 phone ??!!

    thanks in advance for any clues

    Afternoon all - feeling rough which a shame really cost it looks nice outside yeah I know it will be cold but it's the sort of day I could up my step count. Got like funny sensation in my left ear - it's a bit like white noise. Think it must be the leftover cartaah from the headcold I have. At least the headache has subsided.

    Not a brilliant start but hopefully I will have the energy to pop to Ms for beans and soup.

    AJ don't be naughty and take it easy. Di sorry yr op has been delayed but it's sounds as though it mightsuits you better. However have to agree with Blacklist - money tight at this time of year. I had to wait until a pension was paid into my account before I could make a contribution. Glad I don't have to wait until end of the month like most others.

    Bubbs I know you have to move out every year but don't understand why. Gosh it must be a real pain just after Xmas too.

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday folks. xx

    It does not have NFC so will not work for going out shopping to be able to play, but can be used to activate a new account to then add to an existing phone with NFC. To reiterate, if you do not already have an NFC enabled phone to use Droid Pay at the checkout, don!!!8217;t buy this one as you will still not be able to play.

    You don!!!8217;t need a SIM to activate Droid Pay on it, you just need a WiFi connection.

    I felt it was time for another C0 -op till spit MOC so I went home today via the co-op and I found Granny Smiths apples - 4 pack reduced to 75p - 68p after using the NUS and blue Co-op card.

    Out came a till spit for 50p off water and soft drinks so I found a 2 litre bottle of low sugar cloudy lemonade for 65p - 59p after NUS/blue card and then 9p after using the 50p MOC


    Thanks

    55p of yesterday's spend was on rtc parsnips and carrots at a Co op (it's next door to a charity shop where I'd just donated a load, one of the few locally with parking outside.)

    For the day-to-day, I quite like Co op. In yesterday's store, they actively promote their rtcs, pricing them low from early on, and the till ladies will ask you if you've seen the 10p tomatoes etc.

    Co-op also have a free monthly magazine at the till, lots of reading and recipes etc

    Also 2 MOCs valid until early February - one for 1 for an Innocent juice - hideously expensive unless you find it in clearance.

    The other was for Flora diary free 50p off - quite a few supermarkets have this on offer for 1 but I don't imagine the C0-op will

    My suspicious behaviour at Bclys till today netted me a coke, 3 M&S, 3 X 3 Gregg's, 2 x 10 Dine out and a 20 meal voucher (over 2 phones). I decided to use this rather than the STDr as one of my cards is Stdr and their ATM message asks me to use card whereas Bclys says cannot read card. I didn't want to flag my account with Stdr so hoping the fact this ATM says they cannot read the card won't flag my account anywhere.

    Apart from that, I can think of lots of examples where a newcomer has started a post with Im a long time lurker, but I might have just found something.........
