I let her plug it into the mains but deduct the usage from her salary. Seems a fair compromise

Was having Blackberry problems yesterday and had trouble getting a mobile signal first thing this morning but seems OK now.

Somebody probably forgot to press the big red 'On' button at Etishite before breaking for coffee and strange pastries.

There is something on Gulf News about BB problems. Our work network was crap yesterday, and my phone reception was on/off.

Just another day in paradise.

Have to admit, they are much of a muchness.. My employer just moved all our mobile numbers from Estishite to dOn't and we have now found our office in JAFZA does not get a dU signal....

Thats what happens when you get accountants involved...!!!
