    Smile Please can anyone help solve this ?

    Is there any kind person who can solve the below for me: Ive tried for ages to get this to run in NetBeans and it won't work. I'll be truly grateful if anyone can get it working. )

    Application coding
    Project Name: PhoneProblem

    Write a program which allows the user to input information to solve the following problem:

    “Sometimes it’s difficult to decide which phone to use – my mobile phone or my home phone. If I’ve got free minutes left on my mobile phone, then I use them – but only if I’m calling a land line or the person I want to call uses the same network provider that I have. If I don’t have free minutes left, then I use the home phone (as long as I’m at home) – unless it’s on the same network, in which case it’s still cheaper to use the mobile. Having said that, sometimes my flatmate is on the home phone, and so if it’s urgent I have to use my mobile anyway. If it is not urgent then I will wait until my flatmate has finished then use the home phone”.

    Your program should ask the user various questions and then display the correct phone to use (home or mobile) based upon the conditions stated above.

    Your question is very vague.

    Do you have code already, and have bugs or exceptions? If so, can you post the problematic code here?

    If you just plain don't know what to do, I can offer this advice: think if-statements. To me, the above situations sounds like a bunch of if- and nested-if-statements. Read the problem through very carefully, and then try to devise a structure for your if-statements.
