Probably cheaper cos they treat the staff like **** and don't pay commission or bonus while shareholders rake it in.
And the bosses don't give a stuff about the staff only figures and targets

why should staff get commission, when I go to cpw I know what I want and find staff to be useless anyway

Try the Argos 3G deal - if the stores will still honour it...only £20 more for a 32GB 3G Nexus! I picked up mine this morning

The staff are paid a pathetic low basic and expected to produce unrealistic results on inflated targets set by bosses who have no idea what goes on on the shop floor . No lunch breaks or even any breaks , under staffing levels and told to get on with it or leave then get their **** kicked when targets are not reached. The stress they are under is ridiculous and its not just Carphone but many retailers. Retail needs a damn good shake up and staff start getting treat correctly by the companies they work for.

Wow this escalated quickly!!

What the Argos deal?

Strange how people moan about badly treated staff whilst others like Amazon have no shops nor pay their corporation tax !

It so often sounds like a vote for pestilence

Hey, I'll get you a new broom for the next time you make such a sweeping statement.

did you get the 3g version?
Coz I bought one yesterday and they gave me the WiFi version for £179.99 when I asked if they're sure it's the 3g version they just checked online and assured me that it's the 3g version, however after reading the reviews on hukd on how to verify if it's the 3g or WiFi model by checking if it's got an imei number I took it back to Argos to exchange however they refused to exchange and only gave me a refund

This isn't the place for disaffected (ex?) employees to vent their feelings. It's a very competitive business (maybe the most competitive). If you can't stand the heat..........................

I would pay £40 more for the second generation from Tesco.

That's retail I'm afraid! I work for Carphone on their insurance team, the pay is above average, we do get a bonus each month, and we have a fantastic management team! So don't be painting the whole company with same brush...

Seconded.

I got the Argos 32GB 3G deal today. I asked if they could check it was the 3G version so they opened it and there was no slot for the sim card so I asked if they could look at the 3G version listed at £239.99 and ask the manager about the description and they agreed to let me have the 3G version for £179.99

The Argos deal states that it's for Nexus 7 32gb 3g but it's the wifi version. Got mine today, will return tomorrow as not 3g...

For sure, but maybe not just yet! Hopefully an update will sort it and it's not a hardware fault. nexus 7 (2013) issues.

Motion passed

Is this the latest nexus 7 or the old one?

Seconded.

sloppy seconds lol

Got mine last thing yesterday. Brought out the wifi version initially, but finally got the 3g version. One way to tell the difference is to open the box (breaks the seal, though), and on the clear plastic protection for the Nexus there is a little micro-sim icon on the front pinting to the sim slot on the side. The wifi doesn't have this. There's nothing on the outside of the box to indicate the difference (no mention of '3G', IMEI number or anything like that. Without breaking the seal the only way to tell the difference is via the model/part number, detailed elsewhere in the post. The staff at Argos could not have done more to be more helpful - they wanted me to go home happy.

I totally agree with previous poster, Argos were great. I really expected coming out with the wifi only version but a quick chat with the manager and no argument, they let me have the 3G version for the same price and I used the Telegraph voucher as well

@goldie3 i couldnt agree more if only people knew what a sh1te place to work it is now.Years ago the pay was awsome and the best place i ever worked loved it but i since left.Targets were stupid and unreachable.Sam tyer is the cause and an utter bitch whos ruined what was to many a great company with excellent perks.Id still buy from them though as i feel for the staff and without doubt carphone are alot more competitive.As for the nexus i may be tempted for that price an amazing tablet.

we got one. it updated to 4.3 within 30 mins. The screen is really bright, not sure what those reviews were on about.

anybody got a link any good screen protectors and a case?

Is this the new 2013 model? Or the previous one? Thanks

Looking at the Tesco website it say's that you can per-order the 16GB/32GB Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet.due for Release on 28/08/13 so I would say its the previous one.

Retail are getting a shake up (By Amazon) don't think Amazon are much better to their staff though.

The Carphone Warehouse near me is fine they never give me any hassle or annoy the hell out of me.

(Unlike Phones4U or EE or O2 in the same shopping centre. Why the same centre needs 6 phone shops (2 of those unlocking type ones that sell cheap china $0.99 junk for £4.99 and do £20 unlocks).

Phones4U have in particularly probably wasted a significant number of hours of my life. (When I have just wanted to make a cash or debit card purchase).

Carphone Warehouse phone sales are not pleasant to deal with though.

Anyone got an Argos code they aren't going to use?

Phone Shop innit !

is the telegraph todays paper for the voucher?
