In morrisons this evening lookingfor Hard drives or Ipod bargains. But came out with Sat Nav instead. Not sure why as got one in the car.

But I saw they were having mega clearance on Mobiles Phones.

Sony Ericsson W350i on Vodafone PAYG for only £14.99.

This is by far the cheapest by a long way over anywhere else on the net.

This was also on in our larger store so guess it maybe is nationwide. Our local morrisons had 2 left.

I doubt it very much especially in supermarket. Though not too sure but I know Aerix is best free tool out there to unlock Sony Ericsson as its uses their standard data USB cable though not sure if these models are supported. I have unlocked many W595 with it and takes seconds. The site is now down but those with previous access can still use the software.

i would imagine ALL branded prepay handsets are locked to network.exception is the dreadful carphone warehouse

What makes CPW worse than all the others? I have used CPW subs, OSPS & Mobiles.co.uk, without probs. Not used CPW direct for a few years but never had any probs when I did. In those days you could email Dunstone direct - no longer though.

I would put it purely on their lack of customer support afterwards.

Carphone warehouse cost me a fortune 4 years ago. It was found that somehow their newly setup contracts and info i.e telephone numbers, customer perosnal info were being given out to companies dealing in insurance particularly handsets. I got call within 1 hour of setting up 2 new contracts through CPW direct. Knew everything, including handset, numbers, my details, even stated first 4 digits of card number for the one I used. (Didnt realise these 4 digits were generic on all cards till after) and they offered me better deal on insurance than what already taken. Thought nothing of it. Gave them payment details they gave me reference number and tel number for cust service, still nothing clicked. Decided to cancel after 2 days no luck number not working. Searched their details didnt exist, went to bank and no money, account empty and through my overdraft. My debit card I used to buy insurance was used to clear out my account. £2995 in total give or take few pence, bank found me liable and only managed to get back 1/3 of total. 25 seperate transactions over the bank holiday period. CPW denied any involvement or knowledge of how my details got to these people or who infact they were

To date stayed well clear

The phone clearance looks to be widespread at Morrisons. I dropped into Sutton branch yesterday and they had a basket full of reduced mobiles. I found an LG GB220 on O2 at £9.99.

Well you should have taken it higher up the food chain at the bank and to FOS there's NO WAY you should have been liable for a penny of it, sorry to hear that, nasty

This had nothing to do with Carphone Warehouse (read this BBC article - looks familiar)

Sadly you fell for a scam, plain and simple, and you gave away your banking details to allow a fraudster access to your bank accounts (which they plundered).

This is why the bank did not go in your favour and why Carphone Warehouse denied any liability.

It may sound harsh, but it's a lesson learnt the hard way - don't give your bank details over to anyone you don't know (the bank won't foot the bill, and to be honest, why should they?).

If anyone phones asking for your details, do what Martin advises from MSE and ask for a contact number so you can phone through to their switchboard. Personally if anyone phones me asking for my address or any details I politely tell them NO. There's plenty of scams where they will call you first to get details about you and then a while later some one else phones you who now knows about you so they can complete the scam. Don't give details over the phone to anyone that phones you, even if it some one you think you trust, phone them back, and don't give details via email, email is not a secure medium.

Gave up fighting in the end. Unfortunately when using your Debti Card you dont have any backing should anything go wrong. The biggest issue I had was I gave them my full card details. Only thing I had going in my favour was it that it was bank holiday so back then bank never up dated as transaction werent as adavcnd as they were now so could stop majority of them. The ones that did go through couldnt get back. Fought the company involved but in the end just took it on the chin and vowed never to relay my card details to anyone over the phone again.

There are a hell of a lot of posts and threads across the web with the same company so it wasnt just me that was scammed.


But what I have learnt is, live life via your credit card, its so much safer nowadays cause of the protection you get. Just spend on it as per your bank balance and come end of month transfer money across. Does wonders for you limit.

I know all about the stories, but why should CPW take a hit of the blame, how else did our Private personal information submitted to them get to these guys.

CPW are different to other mobile phone retailers in that they manage your account so they hold vast amounts of data about yourself. I had a right to formally complain and ask that they took liability, thought they didnt but feels like they should take some blame.

The key to the whole matter is - people bought the phone from CPW, a short while later they got a phone call from the scammers - how did the scammers get the contact details? From CPW! There must be a leak, CPW must be responsible!

I totally agree but it didnt get me anywhere. From BBC and trading standards investigation found out 90% of victims of the scam all got their new contract through the CPW, but nothing came about it against them. Tried under Data Protection Law as could only conclude that they sold of information as part of the 3rd Party Clause but....nothing back. Plus no matter what I buy if DPA is mentioned I ensure boxes either ticked or unticked where required that under no circumstances are any of my details to be given to anyone.

But CPW covered their asses and that was it

i cant find the phones on the website ???

link anyone ??:|
