Well, I went on contract with orange on an 18 month contract at around june the 25th. I bought it from the carphone warehouse. The phone I chose was the lg chocolate (in black, it was the only colour then). The thing is I really dislike the phone. I find the buttons to be unresponsive and dislike the general feel to the phone. At the start I thought it to be faulty so I sent it back to the manufacturer and I have recently got it back, however the problem still persists. <br />
<br />
I have just got back from the carphone warehouse and they cannot see the problem, when they use it seems perfect, which leads me too think that it is my hands that are the problem. I have quite hard tips of fingers through to playing a lot of bass guitar therefore I think that is the cause. <br />
<br />
However I did not take out insurance on the phone as I could not afford it so carphone warehouse will not replace it/cancel the contract.<br />
<br />
Can I sell it? Am I allowed? If so, is there anything which will remove the light scratches which are on it?<br />
<br />
What should I do? I cannot last the 18 month contract with this phone, I am currently using my really old brick of a nokia as I cannot use my chocolate.<br />
<br />
Thanks

You should be fre to use any phone that's compatible with your sevice provider. Were I you, I'd take the hit and sell that thing on Ebay ( or some similar service)... that's where my brother got his phone.Then, take your time and research what phone you'd like to replace it with.<br />
<br />
I know exactly what you mean with regard to how the phone "feels" and how impottant that can be. I'm using an ancient Motorola flip phone ( inherited from the wife when she got a Razor... I already went through one of 'em), because it suits my needs the best.

Thanks, I will try and unlock it and sell it.<br />
<br />
But first to get more money I think I should get rid of the scratches first, any products that can do that?

Best advice would be to sell it and go to an authorized dealer or store and pick out a new phone. Get the feel of the new phone..etc..make sure you can live with it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">

Niko... I know there's a product out there that will take out minor scratches in plastics.... it's used for comp cases.. but cannot for the life of me remember the name of it. Perhaps one of the admins will have seen and remembered it.

My two cents worth would be to use sanitizing solution on the phone, to get the nasties off of it, then to use something like car wax over top of it, and then to use lemon oil to buff anything else out. Then, as a final touch, use oxidizing solution to make it shine. Of course, you'd be doing all that with a surgeon's touch, and quite possibly with ornament detailing brushes etc. etc.
