I just called up EE to enquire about price to upgrade to IPhone 7 on £40.99 tariff with 10GB data. The offered at £210 upfront cost. I quoted MPD price of £128.99 only to be told that the phones through them are refurbished. I duly requested my PAC but contacted MPD to check. They confirmed phones are new. The guy on phone offered upgrade to me for £122 even though on website is £164.99. I left my details for guy to call me tomorrow.
I just wanted to check is it common for resellers to offer different prices to what's listed on website and can the company be trusted. I mean when he calls tomorrow how can I be sure he's legit before giving my card details over phone. Also does the 14 day cooling off period apply when doing an upgrade over the phone.
