Modern technology is wonderful WHEN it works! If I had a penny for every time I said that, I would be worth mugging!
Now steady on George, go back to work and relax I said IF!
Elly sent me an email and suggested I blog the content. The easiest way is just to copy and paste the info so here it is:
Nokia have announced a battery recall for some BL-5C phone batteries manufactured between Dec 2005 and Nov 2006. In very rare cases the affected batteries could potentially experience over heating initiated by a short circuit while charging, causing the battery to dislodge.
Since so many people carry Nokia phones, I though it might help to post the link below which provides you details on how to check if your battery comes from the affected batch. Remember to look closely to spot the difference between ‘zeroes’ and the capital letter O – it can be hard to tell. Also think of sending the link on to anyone you know that uses Nokia phones.

Now you know, do what your grannymar tells you, go check!
Thank you very much for that, Grannymar.
I have a Nokia phone, but I couldn’t find how to open it. I gave it a good few good belts with a hammer, until the case fell open.
It now tells be that my battery [what’s left of it] does not need to be replaced.
Anyone got a spare phone?????
