bill48er Replace the Sim first, not helpful when you consider that the phones now have nano slots and no way of allowing a sim slot for micro sims.
The phone died unexpectedly and there is no way to order a sim card when you have no internet... It was lucky that I had a sim card that I got to put in my sons phone, he lost hos phone so I didn't get to use the sim.
What the issue is, the way in which people are shoehorned in to one size fits all, sadly, real life does not work that way or simply.
So your reply is not as helpful or as clever as you seem to think.
Main aim of my post was to point out issues that arise from inconsiderate design changes, service updates, so called upgrades and so on.
The world is full of idiots that think that updating something makes it better... wrong, about another 20 years under your belt will confirm that for you.
