    Thanks Dave, I am still a bit green about phones! Our problems understanding that began because we initially took our WF’s up to the Grimsby EE shop for Sims. They carried out all the setup, which probably included the Unlocking process. They also sent SWMBO’s phone TU (I still get occasional fallout from that!) and it took another visit to straighten it out. Then the CMod afair hit the buffers. My swift updated OK to stock Android and then Nougat. SWMBO’s fell over (more fallout 😣😥) and it took the RMA to sort out, detailed in an older topic. have to say that Wfox were very good about that.

    Ed that is encouraging and I am pleased that someone else here has a Wileyfox. 😀 Even SWMBO is mostly happy with her little Spark (the phone, not me) and I like my Swift, but will have another WF sometime.

    The WF are not locked to a carrier bob. So any card would work out of the box.

    I’m glad you like it so much, I’m sure I put you on to them. We had a couple of the first ones here. They was great.

    Yes you did recommend WF Steve, thanks. And that’s good news, I should have known it.

    Steve Chibay phone battery replacement is not physically difficult, just near impossible to find a replacement battery for 2+ years old phones.

    Wileyfox now offering pretty big discounts for lock screen ads. It’s not an always on feature, just when you wake the phone up.

    Might sway some people.

    Pm, I don’t mind this at all so me hate it. But the kindle reader and cheap kindle fire both do this. I not only don’t mind it, quite liked it, as you hardly seen it, and to me it was just like an ever changing lock screen background. Once unlocked, ad gone.

    Id take the ad version over the non ad one. Even if there wasn’t much discounted for it.

    Others are doing this also.

     

    Update – £50 saving, bring on the ads.

    Totally agree, if I was after one of these it’d be a ad based one. Bargain.

    Going back to gdaughter’s phone: Ordered a Wileyfox Swift 2Plus: http://tinyurl.com/y9joe9j9

    In Gold, with earbuds and cover, gson used Workplace to get the lot for £153 instead of £189 for phone, plus accessories.

    I will be looking at it with envy. As I started typing this, just received a System update to my old original Swift (it’s Soooooo 2016, dontcha know! 🙄😏) Waiting for Installation….

    EDIT …. and done! Latest Nougat 7.1.2.
