The phone that works is 3G, and it doesn't seem to have a 'force 2G' option anywhere. I'm in the Greater Boston area, so I can't imagine the phone company could just have turned off 2G here yet; there are too many subscribers around. > Assuming that your email TLD matches your location, you are doing this > in the UK, right?

The only reason is laziness. I like following your work very much, and am glad you're doing it, and planned to upgrade eventually. I might as well do it now indeed...

It does, I expect, I just haven't set it up to do that yet. Basically because I just want a dumbphone that works, really, so tend towards laziness regarding my phone nowadays. > HTH, It certainly does, thanks, I'll report back tomorrow.
