Winrar will extract Tar files , inside will be a Zip file , but if you go down this route , then read read read before you do it.

after explaining the problem to an 'o2 guru' (guru roughly translated meaning useless eejit who speaks little english n doesn't have a clue what they are doing), they went quiet for ages, then left the conversation.
Tried again, explaining to someone else, they asked me for my account details as in remaining air time allowance etc, which i obviously don't know if i can't get into my phone to check, thats the whole problem. so i try logging into my o2, this doesnt work n wont let me log in, n just asks me to reset my account, i reset, but it just keeps going back to the reset page, so i go back to the conversation to tell em this, only to find they have said i've took too long to tell em the info n they've closed the conversation.
Try again, new guru, explained everything, went quiet again for ages, then a message popped up n it said they passing me onto a relevant person who can help.
New guru, this time they don't even say anything, n it just pass's me onto yet another one.
Final guru, explain yet again, they ask if it's still in the first year, i say yes, they ask if i bought it online, I say yes, they say take it to the nearest store where they will replace it. I ask if theres no other way of doing a hard reset or them doing anything with the imei number, cause whenever i've had trouble with previous phones, the first thing asked for every time was the imei number. They say there is nothing they can do without physically holding the phone in their hand n to take it to store for replacement.
So after a few hours of trying to talk to at least 5 different 'gurus' I'm no closer to fixing it.
Taking to a store will be a right !Removed! take as the closest ones are in town, which has just been on tv today that nottingham is the 3rd worst city in the uk for congestion n is basically stand still traffic all the way through.
Was gonna go today but the Missus has been suffering from a severe aura migraine since last night so I've been trying to take care of her.
Also, looking on o2 site, it says if i bought my phone online, i have to phone a customer services to ask them how to send it to them.
So if i drive all the way to town in stand still traffic, n take it to a store, are they then just gonna send me off with my faulty phone n say phone the number?
Gonna try n call it tomorrow but I know i'll be stuck on hold for ages
Sorry for the long rant by the way I'm just obviously very stressed out with not having a phone since monday
