    Well the e63 be nice but qwerty keyboard won't be necessary. The phone is only used to pick up calls only lol as its for taking phone orders.
    So the w810i has good speakers and when you take calls its loud??

    Yea from what I remember. Have you thought about using the headphones? You could just stick one headphone in when you get a call. You know the earphones like this with the rubber bits in:

    they would be perfect in a loud environment IMO.

    The old K800i but you'd probably be stuck getting it second hand. Fucking rugged phone, i used to love that phone and lol its better than my current phone.

    My parents don't like earphones and the phone used at work is old school its an old nokia phone with those giant plugs to plug in to use earphones.
    I love the k800i it was definitely one of the best phones i have owned,very reliable in every way. Excellent camera and fast lol.
    I was thinking about getting a k800i to replace my parents work phone.
    KieranD says thanks.

    K800i has a good audio and signal quality, the speakers are clear, voice is good on this too. Has a bright screen and the menus are easy to navigate.

    Thing feels nice to hold and the phone is well built, it can stand a lot of punishment.

    You can get one of those cheap phones but the k800 would be better overall and since its a few years old it will be cheap to get. I looked up some cheapo phones at like £10 lots of them are bright screen and simple to use but no mention of call quality or volume :( which can be a problem on those. Nokia C2 isnt very loud and doesnt feel good if your hands are sweaty, my grandparents have that as their main phone but its easy to use.

    EDIT: yeah man the k800i was fast to use everything just happened as soon as you pressed it unlike my current nokia, fucking sloooooooooooooow! Great battery life too i almost forgot that.

    If your not a UK citizen you can be of another nationality providing you live in the UK, If I was a Russian living in Angola would I be eligable? :D

    BBQ sounds like a good idea though...

    i don't know how high your house is (this might be dangerous) but it sounds good, you get a lovely view from that height

    EDIT: i have pepsi for the first time this week!!!

    Yea, I got the sea like 300 metres from my house. It's only 3 stories high but would get a nice tan, and it'd be peaceful. Only bad thing would be the seagulls crapping everywhere.

    How sloped is your roof, if it's a flattish one then it'd be a good idea

    Yea it's completely flat up there. The builders are always going up there to fix aerials and stuff but the loft-hatch thing they go through's got a padlock on.

    Might have to borrow my Dad's bolt-croppers :D

    i've only left this house twice this week, and since my PC is broken i've spent about 6-8 hours a day on the playstation

    As opposed to last week where i had so many things to do and not enough time to do them
