I have. There's a fee of $2. And a choice of different shipping options plus you are able to fill out your own customs form.

I'm not too fussed deep down regarding the IMEI change, more the storage change, however, it does shit on an unaware / non-techy consumer though. Had I not checked and sold the phone as 64GB, could have raised some trouble down the line.

Even more so, as the insurance company's contract states that they will notify you if they cannot repair the phone.

Insurer wrote: If we are unable to repair your phone, a replacement will be sent to you within 1-3 working days. If we don’t have the same make and model in stock, we will contact you within 2 working days to discuss the other options available.

Checking the IMEI online, gives the full spec of the phone, so it's clear that the phone has been 'tampered' with.

Will give them a call, and see what is what.

any development on this. oddly intrigued by the outcome

Probably your billing address was different to the shipping one. I always just used the same address for both

What's a nice minimalistic and slim zip hoodie? I just want one black zip hoodie, but most stuff on the market looks cheap or has a "rugged" look. Kinda like the NikeLab Essentials one, but is there anything better?

Got married a couple of weeks ago and got a few cheques as gifts. Some of these are made out to Mr and Mrs Surname, can I just deposit these into my account as normal or will I need to open a joint account for them?

You'll need a joint account mate, caused me a lot of hassle.

Yup, joint account.
Santander opened us an account with my Mrs passport and our wedding certificate.
Then deposited our cheques in and happy days.

Some of my students are wanting to get either a ping pong table, or a foosball table in the creative studio, but the university won't stump up the cash for this. Short of getting them to chip in a few quid each to buy one, anyone got any ideas how I can get one for free or know anyone (pubs, leisure centres, etc) who might just want to get rid of one? Or any companies who might donate one!?

Loads of used ones on Gumtree for £50ish. Could try looking on Freecycle as well if there's one local for you, might find someone getting rid.
