Singtel and loan phone!

Bah, just given my Nokia phone to Singtel for repair, after a mere 3 months use. Asked for a replacement phone and was given N8210! What an outrageous handphone replacement.

Furthermore, despite being a company that deals with communication and in a sense information, the company seems to disregard information security altogether. I found tonnes of other people's contact in the loan phone! I realized that the numbers could have simply be there from the previous person having the loan phone. But still, Singtel as an established and respected company should have simply and easily press several key to delete all the contacts from the phone before passing it to another person.

What a nightmare if the loan phone was at a bad guy's hand.
