    I've had so many mobile phones I never keep track of each of their settings

    Think this was the mobile which had about 9 pending. I ticked the do all box

    Currently down to 4 mobiles and if I can get around to taking off all the stuff from the one with the swollen battery will have that one to give away

    Looking to buy a 7.2" 5G phone, see photo but only if can buy here, not send away for

    when i hear "phone"
    I still think of that thing with a dial hanging on the wall in the kitchen....................

    "mobile" cures that.
