Well your response didn't exactly inspire me to go out of my way to help, but the basic steps are:

1) if you haven't already done so, on your PC go to www.gmail.com and set up a gmail account.

Why would you store the master copy of your contacts locally (either on phone or SIM) anyway? Just keep your contacts in e.g. your google/gmail account, the phone will synchronise with it. They'll...

Don't agree with his actions, but there's a bit of unfounded hysteria here IMHO.

Re: upgrade

It's free because they've got little choice but to do so. They're one of the worst examples of the misdemeanour that Mr Plodd points to : in standard guise the MIRO of the 255 is 3250kg, which if...

(I'll await the flames).

Caravan. Get one. Your usage pattern is better suited to it, you'll have a lot more room in the van itself, and ability to go out in a "normal" sized vehicle when you...
