I have been having a little spot of bother with my phone.
It’s nothing much. It’s just a small matter of its battery and charging of same. I plug it in to charge and leave it. I come back a while later and it’s still half flat. There’s something wrong with the connection.
Anyhows, I know it’s probably a simple quick fix but my attitude was one of fuckit, I deserve a new phone. Yesterday I ordered one and forgot about it.
The new one arrived this morning which is something quite remarkable.
Naturally I unpacked it. I’m not going to mention the name as doubtless everyone will queue up to tell me it’s a heap of shite and I should have bought something else. Suffice it to say that it’s a mid range Android and has 5G which is fun as I have a problem here getting 3G.
So far so good. My problem now is transferring all the crap from my old phone to the new one. Naturally it happily transferred all the rubbish but balked at transferring the good stuff. I have yet to work that one out.
But then I noticed a problem. Naturally the phone arrived with only a little charge in the battery. I went to plug in a charger. Bugger! It has a type of connector I haven’t come across before – a Type C [apparently]. Now they conveniently gave me a cable with a Type C on the end which I plugged in. But the other end of the cable is a Type C too which is fuck all use. Damn! I have no way of charging the phone and the battery is almost flat.
So now I have to head off to Dublin to buy some proper cable or at least a mains plug that takes Type C.
Never mind. I’m in good mood today.
It’s the Spring Equinox and the day is now longer than the night.
