    Carphone Warehouse Refurbished Phones
    Hello

    Has anyone had any experience with refurbished phones from Carphone Warehouse?

    I sent my phone in for repair and they have apparently lost it! So they have offered me a refurbished phone as a replacement. Would this be 'as good as new'? They state on their web site that it will come with a 12 month manufacturers guarantee, rather than the 2 years I had before, though my phone is now 18 months old.

    Any insights into your experiences would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    your 18 mth old phone was sent in for repair , this could not be completed (lost it) so they are going to replace it , the replacement will only have the remainder of your original guarantee left on it , in your case the replacement phone will have 6 mths warranty ,

    Thanks Papa Golf.

    In the end I complained enough (after lots of calls and failed promises) that they gave me a voucher for a new phone. Lots of hard work but a good result in the end.

    Reports would suggest that Apple will release a new iPhone early next month. I'm in the market for a new phone but not necessarily the latest.

    Once the new iPhone is introduced how long do you think it will it take for refurbished handsets to drop in price. I assume quite rapidly!. I'd be looking for an iPhone 6s

    I'd buy from a major retailer: O2, Argos, some of the major players.

    Refurbished iPhone 6 from O2 - Can't cancel airtime only
    Hi All,

    Just a quick note so that no one else gets caught out:

    I followed the advice given on an MSE post which suggests that you can buy a cheap refurbished iPhone from 02 by selecting the phone, signing up to the cheapest 02 Refresh airtime tariff, and then cancelling the airtime tariff, leaving only the actual phone contract, HOWEVER, I've just come off the phone from 02 who will not let me cancel the 02 Refresh tariff only, and have said I can only cancel the whole contract and return the handset.
