Carphone Warehouse scam

Posted on September 22nd, 2006 at 3:04 pm

Yes, another rant. I signed up to phone insurance last year when I bought my phone via The Carphone Warehouse. The cost was £30 for three months of insurance – a bit steep but it was my first contract phone and I was worried what might happen if I lost … Continue reading
