Too smart for her own good

Conversation at dinner this evening moved on to the Olympics, and Tibet, and things. We tried to remember where the Olympics were held in 2004. Sophie (8 and a quarter!) informed us it was Athens, and we all chorussed “Two thousand was Sydney!”.

Sophie put her hand on her forehead and said,
“I predict 2012 will be in … London!”


“I’m a fortune-teller!” We all laughed, but corpsed completely when she followed up with,

“Naw, I googled it.”

How to unlock an LG KG225

I have an LG KG225 mobile phone.  I needed to unlock it so that I can put in an NZ Vodafone sim when we go to Nu Zilland on Wednesday.  The Sunday afternoon call-centre muppet could not tell me how to enter the unlock code when I squeezed it out of of him, and I could not find the instructions anywhere.  So here they are:

 Having obtained your unlock code (calling Virgin Mobile at any time is difficult, and they don’t reply to emails) you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Make sure your Virgin sim is in.
  2. Enter 2945#*1201#
  3. Go to the ‘Settings’ menu and find ‘Security setting’
  4. In there should now be an ‘unlock’ menu.   
  5. Enter the code, hit ‘OK’ and away you go.


The cunning bit is the 2945#*1201#
