Depending on what you want to spend I really like my Cat S41.

Scratch proof glass, water/sweatproof. Basically Me proof which is difficult to get ;-)

Camera is ok ish loads of storage

Dual sim as well, whatever that means

About £300

My phone arrived today and the one thing I can’t do ( there is probably lots of things I can’t figure out ) is get my own ring tone onto it :-(

I'd quite like to get a new phone too. I like Motorola but am a bit wary as they are now a Chinese phone when originally they were American. They win on price though, maybe I should just suck up and go with it. I am a bit of a technophobe though and don't really need the actual phone part of it much. ;-)

Can’t work out if it’s the newness of the phone but it keeps updating stuff and asking me restart the phone - it’s really getting on my nerves :-(

Just discovered my Motorola G7 doesn’t have voicemail and when I dial 1571 it says it’s a technical fault. If I go on YouTube to see how to set one up it tells me to contact my carrier....does that mean BT in my case as that’s who my sim deal is with?

LG - it's not the phone that has the voicemail, its the service provider. I'd bet my child's life on the Moto G7 being able to handle voicemail. Presume you've got this sorted via BT Mobile by now though.

Question for those with teenagers etc - my son has some learning disabilities, but is perfectly adept at using his mobile, and gets a great amount of joy from it; from music, youtube, strava (!), gaming, no doubt some less salubrious activities given his age etc.

What he's not good at is managing his data as he's impetuous. So in some months his 2Gb allowance will last him all month, in other months he's burned through it in days.

I'd like to be able to make sure that he always has some left and usable without him having to intervene so that (for example) we can use Whatsapp to contact him, or follow his movements via Garmin's activity tracking when he's out running.

The data management apps that I've generally seen focus on warning the user when they are close to their limit, but don't seem to offer a way of keeping a buffer which can only be used for certain apps only, whilst allowing him to frivilously use most of his data as he sees fit.

Anyone seen an app that does this sort of thing?

My Motorola is just over a year old and I’m having problems with phone calls.. I can hear people when they phone or I phone them but they can’t hear me. Tried the online chat with someone but after about 2 Q&A’s they wanted £5 to continue so I gave up.

Any technical Fetchies able to offer a solution - thanks

Got something to say?
