So I lost my phone last week, and the CPW insurance have agreed to offer a replacement.
Only thing is, they don't have the phone (HTC Touch HD) in stock. Neither do any of the Carphone Warehouse stores.
They have offered me an Omnia, or Touch Diamond 2. Neither I feel are as good as the HD.

Also, unless I get the replacement phone, it will cost me £15 for a replacement sim.
Is there anything I can do?

Nope, they can only do it through CPW. It's so annoying, especially as I am paying £11.99pm!

So with insurance if you 'lose' your phone they will just give you a new phone?

Yep, depending on what insurance you take out. As I took out the most expensive one (£11.99), this is included.

But, its very annoying being without a phone, waiting on them to receive stock. Another company i'm sure would give vouchers / find stock from other sources.

So what stops someone saying they lost their phone, just to get another one? If they lock it, get it unlocked. Anyone can take out insurance of whatever amount, a month later......oops phone lost, new one please, then cancel insurance. This sounds too easy.

Yeah thought so :x
Called the sales line, and they don't have any, and went into my local cpw - same.
Yeah if there was a better phone, i'm sure they would offer it. BUT, they don't. I really don't want to accept an inferior phone?

then i would refuse, and demand the phone you want or the price to buy a new one elswhere, what does it say in the t&c of the policy

I have a brand new (2 week old) HTC HD which i'd be more than happy to swap for the Diamond 2 if you decided to take CPW on their offer?
