I've finally got a new phone. So I'm now only about two years behind the times. At least I've made it into the 21st century. I contacted Mazuma Mobile to see if I could get any cash back for my old phone. I was greeted with a sharp intake of breath and was then promptly informed that it would cost me a tenner for them to take the old one off my hands.
Many people have predicted that advances in technology and the low cost of phones will see the demise of public phone boxes within the next few years. However, I'm not so sure. Granted a public phone will not play your favourite music or allow you to stalk your ex on social networking sites, but you can't eat your kebab out of the rain on a Saturday night or relieve yourself of a surplus of alcohol in a Apple iPhone 4S or a BlackBerry Z10.
