After the initial confusion on how to best set the phone up, my husband had figured out the wallpapers and alerts and could immediately tell which sim he had active and could nimbly switch networks depending on the network that an incoming message was from, so that he could reply from the same network.
Things went well for a time. The phone had a Facebook app so he could keep track of his friends’ messages to him and he could also check his email using his sims’ load whenever he wanted to.
This morning however, disaster struck. He had turned the phone off to charge it last night, and when it finished charging he kept it off and went to sleep. This morning he found the Samsung logo blinking on the screen, and it refused to turn on. He tried taking the battery out for a few minutes and put it back in again. Same results.
It’s a good thing the phone is still in warranty, though. A thorough search of the internet revealed that this could be a software problem, and that he needed (well, that would mean me) to take it back to the shop and have it looked at. I suppose worst case scenario would be they would have to give him a new unit so bye bye to all the data stored on the original phone.
Will post findings here as soon as I have them.
