    Well Im still faffing around with my new argoose android phone. I cant seem to get it to accept the three sim card I got. I've followed all the instructions and now done a factory reset and going to try again.
    Does the sim need to be working to get AP to work. I managed to get it onto the internet and downloaded AP and 1two. But dont know if I need sim to actually work to use AP and 1two. If I dont need sim working then not that bothered as plan to take it to cex when finished.

    Just had a very tearful call from my 34 years DS. One of his cats was run over this morning and killed. He doesnt know what to do about his other cat ( the dead cat's sister ) or how to tell his 2 year old daughter ( who loved the cat dearly - was always showing him her dolls etc ). Sad

    Google "contactless atm near me" and in theory it'll tell you where.

    Yup. NFC is needed to pay, but the understanding is that you can set the account up on a non NFC phone then log in to said account on an NFC phone to collect envelopes.

    Afternoon all - gosh what a horrible day out there. Popped to Ms for a bean run. Plenty of stock carefully divided my shopping in two expecting a voucher to pop out to pay for my other bits and pieces got nowt.

    It's receipt show points and previous balance so I am assuming that it's updated overnight - can anyone confirm please.

    Oh Rose that is sad news about the cat. No easy way to tell the little one either. Huge hug.

    Well 3 dogs that's a result bringing your op forward in current climate. Hope it goes well for you.

    That description on argoss said NFC. I almost bought it. Think I might just hold out and hope that they run the promo on Apple Pay soon!

    Unless anyone knows of a decent android tablet it would work on? I don't have a tablet so might invest in one as our home is going "smart" with one thing and another.

    Thanks

    Just opened the Bendicks bittermints.

    You only get 11 in the box.

    I've had them before and I thought there were more than that...
