so the box they gave you is now f***ed? hmm! you should ask them why the gear they supply you with is not more durable. (it's not as if the box f***in moves, is it? ) tell them to replace it or you'll cancel your contract. same happened with my dads sky. told them to replace it or we would take the 40 + that we spend with a month, to a company that values their customers. that should do it. cheeky f***ers! nft.
