You could probably just pop your sim into the new device. Though as its a smartphone you should talk to Meteor and get a suitable plan with data. Should be cheaper than a normal plan as you are supplying your own phone.

I'm having problems installing Java 7.21

I get so far then eventually get the error Browser Launch Error : 1314

Any help much appreciated.

I THINK I've got it sorted. I ran some Microsoft registry fixing program from the web and turned off the fire wall while downloading the Java.

I'm still not 100% sure if what I want to work will work.

How do you screen grab, using a toshiba laptop? I can do it in mac no problem, when I tried googling screen grabs/captures for a PC laptop, all I came up with was "click on the print screen key" but it didn't seem to work?

If you print screen key is at the bottom of the key, with a frame around it, you may have to click on the "fn" keys framed in the same way (both might be a different color like blue rather than framed)

The "prt sc" key is often a "function" key...
Just like you usually need SHIFT for the upper character on a key, and the "Alt GR" for the key at the bottom right.

I google-imaged the keyboad, and if this is your keyboard, my first impression is that it should print screen directly, or using the shift-key:

If you have Windows 7 you will have a program called "snip" this lets you capture your screen and save it to file.
Shift+PrtSc works too, but it copies your screen to your clip-board. You then have to paste this to somewhere. So you can, for example, open MS Word and then paste your screen in to a Word doc.

I tried snip and I did not like it.
When it stips working, for no reason, after a number of snips, it stops the normal copy/paste from working too! so I end up having to reboot the machine.
It may have been my machine but I never used it again...

I prefer to print screen (you can use Alt + Print Screen to print only the active window) and paste in "Paint", then edit and copy what I need.

@Intrepid,
if you just "paste" the result into a document or email, the resulting document size may be too big due to the Bitmap format likely to be used to store the image...
So try various "paste as" in MS Word for instance, to find a paste format that respects your image but does not make it too big.
You have more "paste as" options when you paste from Paint than directly from a screen grab.

The clock on my PC insists on being eleven minutes fast. I did re-set it, but it's jumped back again.

Must be synching with a server somewhere. Poke around the clock settings and find out if it's set up to synch maybe?

Yeah, like Wheelie says.
Right click on the clock then click
Adjust Date/Time
You then click on
Internet Time
tick the box to synch with an online server.
Should solve the problem

Sound like the oppoite of what Wheelie Bin says (as in: he says it's because I am synched, but your suggestion is to synch).

It is synched with "time-b.nist.gov". I'll break that synch and see what happens over the next week.
