There is no way to disable predictive text as far as I can see.

There is.  Press # repeatedly to get Abc, abc, ABC modes, etc.

Ah thanks.

Am picking two up from Tesco today (£5 delivery - no thanks!!!) for the sprogs for their school bags for emergencies. Combined with an Asda SIM (£5, inc. £10 airtime), I consider it about the cheapest way of keeping in touch bar semaphore...

Tescos have a good PAYG deal for their own-brand service: 10p per min to 5 favourite landlines; 20p others.  Wish I got one of those instead of T-Mobile now.  T-Mobile have discontinued their Everyone PAYG tarrif for new SIMs and now charge 25p instead of 15p per min to landlines.  Only found that out after loading it with £5.

No, at least the missus doesn't. Best check the link though...

Lebara are offering free SIMs. Adverts are on YouTube and elsewhere.
Numbers get disconnected if not used for 80 days. They are very cheap for landline and mobile calls and extremely cheap for calls to other countries and other Lebara numbers.

Oh yeah, very good: Free Sim Cards - get your free Sim online | Lebara Mobile

I was silly for not researching more.

If I'd waited another 24 hours, I would have bought the phone for £6 less.

That's life.

Well, both phones working fine. An iPhone it certainly ain't, but at that size and price, who cares! They'll just be used for the kids to call if things go awry. I've made a calendar note to make a call on both of them in 89 days!

The Lebara page says the offers expire 30/6...

I ordered and received my Lebara SIM within the past 7 days, well after 30/6/10. There are some offers that have expired but I think the free SIM is still available.
