GeneralI have two identical phones and it's doing my head in Pin

So, why? Well, I bought a new phone from (whisper it) Amazon back in December. It's a Nokia G20, and it's great. But, after I'd had it for a few days it wouldn't power up one morning so I sent it back for repair.

(Time passes, no sign of it being returned to me, working or otherwise.)

So, tl;dr; Amazon gave me another one.

(Time passes, and meanwhile I learn that all G20's sometimes do this and will only come back on if you hold down the power button for like 3 days. Conclusion: old phone was working fine all along. Hey-ho.)

And then, nearly FIVE MONTHS after I sent it back, guess what? Yep, here it is, back from the great beyond. Bizarre.

So now I have two (even down to them having identical cases - more fool me), and of course I'm always picking up the wrong one. First world problem. But we plan to give one to my mother-in-law so that she can watch the tennis, so it's an ill wind etc. Result.

And thanks to all for putting up with bipolar me. I'll try to keep a lid on things when times are bad.

Some of my best work is in the undo buffer.
