    Currys Refund: A reason that works to get a refund on a tablet? 28th Nov 17 at 2:10 PM
    Hi all,

    What is a general reason that works to get a refund on a tablet product from Currys?

    I recently bought it but realised apps like Whatsapp don't work on it.

    I have already opened it, it's only a few hours old and no damage and still have the original box etc.

    If bought in store and been used, they could decline a return.

    Purchasing mistakes. Like mistakes in general, we have all made them. Some remember their own mistakes and allow for those made by others.

    And some are not so tolerant. They are the Perfect Ones.
    There may be more than one way to skin a cat.
    But the result is always inedible.

    Can't you just run Opera Browser on it? It allows you direct access to WhatsApp.

    ANY browser that enables a Desktop Site view allows direct access to WhatsApp.

    Or are you referring to something different?

    Yes, and when we do make mistakes we own them and deal with them at our own expense.

    We dont try to make up reasons to make it someone elses problem.

    Whats the business meant to do with a tablet thats opened and used? Would you be happy buying it as brand new off the shelf with say, the box taped up with cellotape??

    I'm wholly intolerant of this Snowflake generation where theres always someone else to blame and noone takes ownership for anything.

    A quick Google yields mutliple results on how to install Whatsapp on a tablet.

    I've stopped buying from PC world for this very reason. It may be something like you hate a user interface or maybe a fiddly remote neither of which may show up in reviews or specifications. Most other retailers offer no quibble returns and buying online guarantees it although you may have to pay return carriage.

    It was a current thread when I replied I guess I didn't notice the spam and it has been removed. Unless deleting the spam doesn't alter the thread position in the queue. Either way my post was genuine and I'd advise others to think twice before buying from Currys/PCW unless 100% certain of suitability.

    No problem. I should have spotted the spam assuming it was there when I posted but I didn't read the entire thread as I already knew what my answer would be.
