mobile phones should last for five years
Yesterday my two year old mobile phone suddenly decided not to make noises anymore. And no, it wasn’t on silent – it simply no longer rings out loud, no matter how I set the volume or ring tones or profiles and so on. Interesting, then, that the Oslo courts have just decided that mobile phones should last for five years, like fridges and washing machines, and that the mobile phone producers are responsible for fixing them for that long too, so long as the customer wasn’t irresponsible in her use of the device.
Maybe I won’t be buying a new phone after all 🙂
