/ Nepalese Mobile Phone
As the sim was a local one it's not working in the UK so I'm just wondering what to do with the phone. As it's registered to me I don't want it falling into the wrong hands. On the other hand I'm never going to use it again.
make sure you eat the sim card to be sure
What do you mean by this? What do you think could happen? (genuinely interested, not being facetious).
I think you look for problems. You have just come back from one of the poorest countries in the world where for a lot of people struggle beyond belief just to exist with little complaint.
Get a fecking grip man!
But that is surely only a problem if you are involved in criminal activities yourself. If not, and something did happen (which is unlikely), then when questioned by the police, should it come to that, then you explain what happened, where you were etc etc and there is no longer a problem. I think if a criminal prosecution hinged on the fact that the suspect had a phone in your name from Nepal (or that you were the suspect for that reason) then the CPS have bigger issues!
Maybe I'm too blasé about this stuff but I'd just throw it away (or envirofone it to get some cash). Either that or keep it as a hill phone with a UK sim. I really can't see what the problem is here.
In reply to David Best: I was asking for friendly suggestions not vitriol. But there again I suppose there's something to be gained in winding up a dickhead.
Probably do that.

and they're a damned sight more courteous than you.

Excellent. Problem solved now if you'll excuse me, the bat cave is calling..

You didn't specify either way. People just guessed.

He doesn't look for problems; he simply wants to ensure that EVERYONE knows where he's going, where he is and where he's been.
Several years ago I flew out of a very poor country, where I too had to buy a cheap mobile, when I came leave it stil had credit. When I had checked in I gave the mobile to the first cleaner that I met. Seemed like a good thing to do.
> I think you look for problems.
I think you are right! Whilst I would quite take your brusque and nasty approach to this thread, all your points are pretty valid.
Get a uk payg sim and use it as a hill phone. We all buy phones in our name, and we all get rid of them after a while. Do you worry about uk landline phones you've bought in the past and no longer have. What if they have fallen into the wrong hands and are being used to mis sell ppi?
Yes , I was harsh, but this is UKC , home to bickering/slagging /general unpleasantness, oh and poor spelling /puntuation.
Really all I can say is ....whatever :)
