Last month I received a letter from Orange saying that their rewards scheme, Equity, would be closing at the end of September. As compensation the letter included a voucher for 40ukp which I could redeem against a handset upgrade. If I used the voucher I would lose all my remaining Equity points, which wasn't a great problem.

I called the upgrade centre to order an Ericsson T39m. This would, effectively, be a free upgrade as the price of the 'phone was less than the voucher value. Unfortunately it was out of stock and I was asked to call back in a couple of weeks time. One thing led to another and a month had gone by.

When I called yesterday I was told that the T39m was now free. As was a number of other 'phones. So, I've ordered a Nokia 8310 and I get to keep all my Equity points.

I was surprised that the 8310 was free; under the original offer it was 149.99gbp.

Jane tells me that it arrived this afternoon but I'll have to wait until tomorrow before I can play with it. Quite frustrating really!

(By the way, what does the screen icon, next to the link on the comments page do?)

What little icon?

On the Read Comments page, next to the picture, date & time and the Delete Comment icon there is another icon. It's an eye with one red line through it. Hover the mouse over it and it says 'Screen Comment' (or some such thing). I've not noticed it before. If you look back through this thread you can see that I've tried it. It converts the message into a 'screened comment' - that is, you end up with a link for it on the comments page, rather than the full message.

I suppose you can only screen messages you've created or that are in you journal.
