this is not for everyone. i just upgraded and three now do a two year warranty on all there mobiles including iphone. there website says its not. but customer service will confirm. also there is an automatic £10 discount for upgrade customers against the website prices £20 and over. customer services will tell there is not. stand your ground and get transferred to the retention team. some inside information the retention team will also remove £99 upfront costs on the iphone 6 16gig and still get the £10 monthly sadly they will not do it on 64gig and above.
new customers can do the deal as long as customer services transfer you to the uk based team

I always thought contract phones had to have warranty protection for the life of the contract anyway?
#2
£10 warranty is for suckers. The phone is already covered for 12 months. Better read the small print for what is covered.
#3
I understand warranties have to be proportionate to the item and I doubt a company could successfully argue, if challenged, that a £600 phone shouldn't be covered for 2 years. I assume we are talking warranty and not accidental damage cover, etc..

sadly not. after one year you will be told to contact the manufacturer and hope they will repair or exhange it under the the six year rule.

Q. I've heard that under European Union (EU) law I'm allowed a two year minimum guarantee on goods. Is that correct?
A. EU Directive 1999/44/EC states that all European Union member states must allow consumers to make a claim for faulty or misdescribed goods under their consumer rights for a minimum of two years. English law already allows you to make a claim for up to six years from the date you bought the goods and for up to five years in Scotland. Therefore if you buy any goods from any other EU member state, you can assume that you can make a claim for faulty or misdescribed goods for at least two years after. See the 'Buying goods - your rights' leaflet for more information.

its the sale of goods act. i thing its after 6 months you would have to proof it has a manufacturing fault with it. the six years is also a grey area for mobile phones. manufacturers say its reasonable for a mobile phone to last three years. but as blackberry found out through the courts. users expect to sell the old phones on when they upgrade or pass the phone to a family member who also expects two years use. while waiting to get the newer phone in two years time and then able to sell the four year old phone on as working
