    Cool PP

    Hello!

    Is the use of the present perfect correct in these cases, please?

    -I tried to call her but she's changed her number!

    - You've impressed me today.

    -Your results really bad. You can't be the winner. You've bribed the jury! I'm sure!

    -I've talked to her and she said she was fine.

    -This is the first day I've spent here.

    Thanks a lot

    Thank you.

    Are there any sentences in which we could use the past simple instead?

    Yes, the past simple would be equally correct in all except the first and last examples.
