New! Shiny!
I have a new phone! I've had my old one (Samsung S4) for at least 4 years and it has a cracked screen. However, it's not actually the screen that's the problem, it works fine, it's just that it hasn't got enough memory and apps want to update and they tell me there isn't enough room. I also want to start making videos and I need lots of storage space for that. After a couple of Samsungs, I've gone for a Huawei this time.

I got it partly set up yesterday. When I switched it on it gleefully found the wifi and took me through setting up a new account and downloading updates. Only after all that did I realise I had no phone signal!

So today I went online and did the SIM swap thing (SIMs are getting tinier and tinier. This phone has the nano size) and now it's fully functioning.

Of course there's still a lot of setting up to do. I have to download all my favourite apps, copy over my contacts and work out how to stop it making so much noise when it wants to notify me of something, but I'll tackle that over the weekend.
