My New Alcatel 2010!

Another successful dodge from Smartphone stress.

I got this good functional mobile phone from Argos (Ā£40). It can take anyone’s sim card and you are not tied up into any contract.

But the real secret to turning into a stree-free and welcoming device, was to find this excellent site for Vintage Phone RingtonesĀ  at

If you plug the Alcatel 2010 into a pc or imac you can put it into ‘Mass USB mode’ and place music files directly into its memory so you can pick them up in the Profile settings for a new ring tone.
