""OK I'm really jack of my Samsung A501. It needs *RECHARGING* every bloody day.
So I rang Telstra about getting a new phone and this old duck on the other end said to me that I need to get a Blue Tick phone because they work better in the country""
As I understand the post it's about the REASON you rang telstra, because you have a Samsung phone that may have a DUD battery
that's why you rang Telstra... isn't it ?
I also changed to a Samsung (a412) after ditching the dam useless Chinese made Telstra 165 thing.
Admittedly my FIRST Samsung 412, also had a low battery run time, so I 'insisted' the entire phone be swapped for a new one, just in case it was an internal problem causing the battery to drain.
This second Samsung seems to run for ever with-out recharging, at least 3 if not 4 days minimum.
And that's nothing to do with phone coverage on nextG, 3g, blue tick or cdma :-))
