Found 6th Feb 2010
My other half just went into an O2 shop in wales and was looking to buy a new phone on contract. She wanted an iphone as she likes mine. After talking to the sales advisor she was told the iphone was crap and that she should get a blackberry!!!!!! She ended up getting the blackberry and hates it. Was this sales person an idiot please tell me?

more fool her.....if she wanted the IPhone she should have got one.....she chose not to :? personally I dont think the sales person is the idiot if your OH has ended up with a phone she doesnt like....whats the problem here?

You should never let a sales person push you into anything you don't want to buy, If your other half wanted an iPhone she should of stuck with her decision!

Is this a joke or something? you said it yourself that you have one and now you want us to tell you if the sales person is an idiot? Nope the sales person is not but someone sure is.

thats the purpose of sale advisors

O2 don't have exclusive rights to the iphone now and have stopped pushing it, they told my daughter's boyfriend yesterday not to get an iphone 3gs as the 4g is due out in days LOL

yeah i know but the advisor should be there to tell her the benefits of the iphone too. He concentrated all on the negatives which is wrong!!!!!!! oh yeah she is blonde too so u may be right!!!!!

all there trying to do is meet their sales quotas and shift a few extra blackberries.

its all good now though she had 14 days to send it back she had the blackberry for 6 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bet they either didnt have an iphone in stock or they are getting more commission for selling the blackberry. I think your GF might have learnt for the future. If anything like this happens again she should either stick to her guns and get what she wanted or if not sure walk away ask friends, search the internet etc before doing the deal. I feel really sorry for her.

should have got a nokia 5800xm. Great phone and alot cheaper than both. hehe

i thought there is a 7 day cancellation period?

I would check that as the 14 days can only usually be under the Distance Selling Regulations 2000.

You cannot fault it for the money. Iphone is a rip-off, imo.

Ive bought (as have my mates and family) more than a few phones that havnt been impressed with and have in most cases had 14 days to return. as long as phone is still in same condition as was sold in i dont think there will be a prob.

should be fine to return as long as shes not dropped it!

+1 Flash Player and now Free Navigation and Maps for Life on Nokia 5800

They get FAR more commission on a Blackberry than an iPhone and thats the only reason its better
