“used phone not new”

Written on: 01/06/2015 by gwthomson (1 review written)

I bought a new phone from Carphone warehouse Glasgow silverburn a Nokia only to find when I going to import my contacts the contacts list had 17 peoples contacts on the phone and when I checked everything on the phone I found the internet history was full of searches. I questioned why my phone had no plastic sleeve on the handset and no protection on screen and was told oh that was taken off in front of me when I know it clearly was not. Simply silly excuses to them reselling a returned phone… Read Full Review

“Disgusting. Customer. Staff. ”

Written on: 30/04/2015

Absolutely terrible. The service is just shameful. The manager had English that was so chavvy. The store manager for Currys was so big headed. Didn't allow me to wear a bracelet yet wore a bracelet himself and said health and safety. Never go here. Utter rubbish… Read Full Review

“Beyond Excellent!”

Written on: 24/04/2015 by Rafferty139 (1 review written)

I'm considering to buy/upgrade to a new phone for some time. Still in doubts of which place to get my phone from. A few weeks back I went to PC World in Ken High Street London, where also a CPW is based and I got the best service/advice ever. Store manager a new member to the team were the most helpful from all the CPW store I ever visited. I still haven't choose the plan I want to go for (as to me, I always take a time to do so not only i choosing a phone), but I could highly recommend, if you… Read Full Review

“Lousy”

Written on: 22/04/2015 by fraught (1 review written)

They tried to deliver phone to a scrap yard - I don't live in a scrap yard, but as they left card, someone at scrap yard might get a free phone. Numerous phone calls, wasting hours of my time, to CPW and their couriers (DPD) phone still not delivered, Customer service is non-existant. They are inept and don't give a damn once they have got your money. I wholeheartedly regret ever doing business with these people. They have reduced me to tears, I am so worried about losing the money that I have… Read Full Review

I was served by a lady who I THINK was called anji in the Doncaster frenchgate store, I've never had customer service like this before and I'm so impressed, went in not really knowing what I was looking for and she helped me make the right choice and found the best deal ever, I then left with a huge smile and lovely iPhone 6, both me and my grandma were so happy with this service I hope this lady gets the recognition she deserves !!! :)… Read Full Review

“Mis-selling a product”

Written on: 11/04/2015 by NoraMu (1 review written)

The Carphone Warehouse are and appalling company I of my experience at the Ocean Terminal Edinburgh is anything to go by. I upgraded my up contract taking what the assistant said as being correct, but was given the wrong phone which they now refuse to correct Nd I am stuck with for two years. The manager lied through his teeth and was incredibly abusive as well as saying that the law doesn't matter as he is only doing what he is told by CPW. Vodafone should investigate them as they are… Read Full Review

“Shockingly bad service ”

Written on: 26/02/2015 by IainCoe (1 review written)

I ordered from carphone warehouse online due to the promise of next day delivery. To start with the web site did not allow me to change the delivery address despite me selecting the option to deliver to a different address than my billing address. I rang and this was sorted out. All of this at around 2pm I asked the customer service staff (3 times as she was not listening to me properly) if the next day delivery would be affected. She promised it would not be. Next day arrives and no… Read Full Review

“worst customer service ever!”

Written on: 20/02/2015 by Alexandrac121 (1 review written)

I bought a Lumia 930 and carphone warehouse were the only place that had it at a reasonable price. I had to go to 3 different stores and out of them all, only one was good. The other two had lazy and rude staff who treated me and my father like dirt. I do not reccommend their branch at meadowhall Sheffield if you are a person of colour. Shocking behavior. I was ignored and just left. My father was utterly shocked. Do not go to this place. If you feel like they have the best price however, I… Read Full Review

“Absolutely horrible. DO NOT ENTER. ”

Written on: 15/02/2015 by Javionf331 (1 review written)

Worst customer service ever. If I could give -5 stars, I would. The staff is unfriendly, lazy and untrained. I am on a 2-year contract and totally not worth spending even a penny. The staff was unwilling and unhelpful - they clearly had no training whatsoever. They also do not tell you a lot of stuff when they are trying to sell to you. Worst experience ever. Anyone looking for a phone, never ever go to this place. Avoid if you do not want trouble and hassle later… Read Full Review

“Dreadful shop service”

Written on: 24/01/2015 by swambobo (3 reviews written)

I ordered a new iPhone online from CW and the delivery timing was excellent. As I was up-grading from a very old Nokia 3210 the technology was new to me so I went to the local shop asking for help to put in the sim card. I was I was told I must either pay £14.99, a one-off fee, or £7.99 per month, to include insurance. Hardly a welcoming start to my first contract!… Read Full Review

“Stunned”

Written on: 15/01/2015 by MckenzieBentley322 (1 review written)

UTTERLY STAGGERING I am shocked that the Carphone Warehouse can find that blurting out unacceptable verbatim at people who have a valid complaint in answer to that complaint but does not resolve a single issue!! I received a Motorola Nexus6 8 days ago which has developed a fault, and by their own terms (document zzvmmowelc2001001 paragraph5), I contacted customer service to get a replacement sent out and this one returned. The rep said “that I should go to their stores in local towns.” I… Read Full Review

Jasonkelley's Comment

Written on: 26/01/2015

That is odd. I bought a new phone on a new contract. Decided after a day I didn't like it, they told me on the phone I could replace it in store. I went to my local shop and the guy there made a couple phone calls to make sure my number porting wouldn't be interrupted. Found a new phone for me but wasn't the colour I liked so ordered one in for the next day and it arrived the next day. I couldn't have asked for more.

The only thing the guy in store said...."always go in store", "don't deal with CW over the phone".

“very helpful”

Written on: 10/01/2015 by Reese202 (1 review written)

My windows phone became problematic after a system update. I took it to the geek squad in Merry Hill, who were most helpful. The phone, a Nokia Lumia, was still under guarantee and was fixed and returned to store for collection within a week. Since then the phone has worked excellently. You can only speak as you find!… Read Full Review

Lol. Person buys phone, gets liquid in it and expects a company to give them a new one! It's like crashing a car with no insurance, and expecting Ford to give you a new one!

“Firstly I was due an upgrade, Carphone warehouse...”

Written on: 30/12/2014 by ksjkoa (1 review written)

Firstly I was due an upgrade, Carphone warehouse called me 8 times in the space of 2 days to get me to even though I stressed I didn't want a new phone at this precise moment and would upgrade in a month or so when I was less busy. I stated I had an iPhone 5 and was happy, in the end they persuaded me to change my tariff in which my contract would be only a couple pounds less. They sent me a micro sim that is 4G compatible which does not work on the iPhone 5. I needed a nano sim and 4G… Read Full Review
