      If you do decide to leave ask them how they need to be notified. I had one company insist on a written letter which they needed 3 MONTHS notice, by the time I found this out I was stuck with them for 6 months - thieves the lot of them.

      There are companies that handle all these issues for you. Phone bugging is useful sometimes.

      @Uranium235 i was top 2% on xbox for years 1&2 on destiny tracker logged over 3000 hours. just to much grinding for me the social side was fantastic and i enjoyed it while it lasted. bring on ANTHEM !

      Xbox?...lol. Try D2 on a gaming PC ;) totally different experience. No aim assist, since mouse and keys are far superior  (headshots galore!). The new updates made heroic strikes more difficult than a nightfall  (which is utterly bonkers).

      i thought it would be pretty cool effect lol. i wounder what it would be like to clean though

      just a thought! - i suppose it would cushion the impact and damaging an eyepiece and/or accessory if it 'hit' a solid surface.

      I stopped looking after finding that out. Plus stock photos don't give me confidence.

      If I sold any of my TV's it would have to be no paypal, I do not have an account on Paypal. Not everyone trades on ebay and so has a paypal account. I have lost a lot of bits from SGL sellers because I do not have a paypal account and they were not keen to sell but there is the idea that no traders should be buying and selling here. Could be argued that requesting paypal only infringes that idea. Someone with no paypal account selling off their stuff and getting out is the simple answer.

    4. scarp15

      scarp15

      Paypal is useful in that you have varied accounts registered so providing options to pay by debit or credit. Otherwise I personally usually have had no problem with bank transfers when buying on AB&S.. Agree that original pictures would have been helpful.
