It'll be fine on Christmas if you bought it today.

I have the shittiest samsung PAYG phone on vodafone, I need a new one but want the same number. Do I just need to buy a new payg vodafone phone or a sim free phone?

what's confusing me is that on the carphone warehouse website, it says payg upgrades are only available instore, which I don't quite understand as to why.

Just but a sim-free or VF PAYG phone bill (so it is unlocked to your network) - no hassle.

Last night a chinese takeaway was accidentally ordered to our friends house. The delivery guy left the food with my mate as it had already been paid for online. He didn't mention to the driver that nobody had ordered food and endeavoured to tuck into his feast. 30 minutes pass and there is an angry knock at the door, the delivery driver was back! We turned the lights off and hid until he left. We checked outside to see if he was gone and noticed that our friends bike had been taken! Laughing out loud This was the friend that took the food in the first place btw.

We checked the menu that came in the bag and it turns out this takeaway is over 5 miles away Laughing out loud He called them to complain but they called him a cunt and put the phone down. He rang the police today and explained to them that he had taken the food but they had taken his bike etc. They have also told him to fuck off Laughing out loud

Is he fooked? Karma's a bitch.

He actually explained to the police that it could have been some kind of revenge theft instead of just saying his bike his been nicked? Laughing out loud

Friend just got their iPhone stolen, searched for it on the Find iPhone app and it says the device is offline. Cunt has switched it off, is there anything else that can be done?

Yes - he's quite a basic lad Rob, we even had to write him a script with a bullshit excuse for when he rang them up Laughing out loud

My mate, that I haven't seen in a while, recently got back with his old girlfriend. He had wanted this for a long while beforehand, maybe two years. Just beforehand this, he was making a delivery and ended up having sex with this girl (receptionist/company directors daughter). The next month, when making the delivery, she told him that she was pregnant. This is when he got in touch for advice. She had told him that she had decide to keep it and that she didnt want him to have any part in it. I basically gave him all of his available options but told him the ball was out of his court.

Now he has text saying that she wants him to sign the birth certificate. Obviously, he is reluctant and asked my advice but I'm unsure where he stands legally. He knows very little about her (probably should have considered this at the time but what you going to do?). The stance seems to have changed from having nothing to do with her from this text alone (I know, there could be many reasons for her doing this but it is impossible to know why). If he's not the Father and he signs the birth certificate, will he be made to pay child support? I imagine he would do with the proof that he is the Father but it may be difficult to get out of this later down the line if tests are done afterwards. Nor does he know how he is going to feel later down the line should he not sign it, knowing he will probably never get a chance to know his child?

Basically, I don't need the moral background. It's his option to take but it is particularly the child support that I'm interested in.

'My mate'

I wouldn't suggest he signs the certificate without having a test first.
