    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 isnt 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 .

    Probably mentioned, but take a copy of what is there now in case they change it before you return the phone. Also see if you can activate a new game/account on it before returning it - it may not work, but as some people have got the game to appear again on the same device, there is no harm in trying before returning it as you are factory resetting anyway . The website says the phone comes with 2 free covers too by registering from the link on their website with the phone IMEI ... #justsaying .

    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

    Anyone got a link to the other products giving points at Morrisons, very sad to say I can't make use of beans as I and no-one I know likes them. Know condensed milk and custard have been mentioned.

    Still have Heinz5Beans from when there were free vouchers to print some years ago.
    Told myself I would grow to like them, but didn't work, so not going to do it again.

    Snap-ant, not that Im nosey, oh no but I just wondered how the bidding went with the gorgeous Griffin, I would have loved that.

    louj . Hope you got the payment sorted out after that error the shop made

    hampy Many congratulations to your DS and his gf. Youve every right to be so excited, enjoy the visit to Spain next month

    3Dogs. Thank heavens you had that prescription with you, a life saver indeed. Safe drive home today xx

    mrsmac. Well done! Your motto for a while is Not my concern. Difficult when first letting go but youll soon reach the stage of how did I ever have time to go to work

    Saversue. Speedy recovery wished for you. Have you seen a doctor about this chest infection? I do hope so. Ive got one brewing or it could be the onset of pleurisy (again). Another appt booked for tomorrow.

    All done, off for evening meds and a well deserved coffee

    evening .so today i have spent 6.75 at morries including
    20x small beans
    16xbig beans
    16xsoup
    rice pudding- 55p - 300 points
    Then reduced milk,strawbery tarts and spaggetti for my cupboard.. will be due another 5 voucher next time but i can already see the beans running out very quickly ..

    Had quite a long mooch around shop. the range has things like frozen meals at 1 with 300 points - not super amazing but if you eat ready meals anyway . Garlic bread at 1. Salad dressing at 68P . I thought they might have had some eat smart on like tinned veg etc but i guess that doesn't count as healthy .However a lot of foods in the wholefoods area have extra points attached - not as good value but if your looking to buy it anyway
    91.50365 a year spend challenge - this has included food/clothes/beauty

    Nivea Lip butter tins 3 for 2.
    Just the Raspberry Rose should compare to Waities, 2 in Asda v 1.03 in Waities.

    Should work out at 26p each.

    Nivea Lip balms 3 for 2.

    The Hydro Care, Pearly Shine and Fruity Shine Cherry should compare to Morries,
    2 in Asda v 1 in Morries.

    If the Morries offer compares would work out at 23p each.

    Just the Hydro Care should compare to Waities 2 v 1.03 so could put with the Raspberry Rose lip butter above against Waities, 26p each.

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/Shopping/FindProducts.aspx?query=nivea+lip&store=ASDA

    Like last time, the original nivea lip balm is in the offer in store but is still not showing on Asda website so won't compare.

    If you have Windows 7 or Windows 10 you have it on your computer. You simply bring it up, click "new" on the menu it brings up, then you drag the box around that which you want to copy/print etc. You can save it, copy it or print.
