    Have I just got a free phone??

    I ordered a contract phone from phones4u a day or so ago. The phone turned up this morning but I also got a email a minute ago saying.

    "Thank you for placing your order with Phones 4u. We regret to inform you that your contract/Pre Pay order has been unsuccessful on this occasion"

    very strange not sure if I should ring 'em up to check or hope they don't realise they've sent it to me. :whistling:

    Their mistake, let them chase it.

    My bro was sent two samsung u600's a couple of months back. He's still got the extra one in the box it came in but he's still not been chased over it.

    Check and see whether they have taken payment

    I bet payment will be taken eventually.

    dont say a bloomin thing, its their mistake not yours

    Ring them about the email but dont let on you have got the phone, then you will see what they have on their system.

    Anyone who's ever posted on a forum before knows how to start a poll, it's not rocket science.

    I voted ring them, not so much because I think it's 'wrong' (though I do) but because I personally wouldn't be able to 'enjoy' the phone until I knew what was going on with it, it wouldn't feel like it was mine & I'd probably end up not using it etc

    Did I say it was??:? :? :roll: :roll:
    Just like you, I can post my opinions on anything, anytime on here.

    You insinuated a new member wouldn't know how to start a poll? What's with you lately? You seem to be jumping over everything I say with your eyes wildly rolling around in your head.

    That's not insulting is it?

    He merely pointed out he wasn't a newbie to forums in general despite having only just joined HUKD which is probably accurate, I don't see the problem.

    but who said it was insulting?! Think maybe there's a misunderstanding going on here, perhaps on my part? who knows.

    Dino said that the person who started this thread clearly isn't a newbie (insinuating imho that it's an older member signed up on a new account?) because they know how to start a poll. I was pointing out that's nonsense as any one who's ever been on an MB before will know how to start a poll. Then he seemed to take offense & make out I was having a go :thinking:

    Hmm reading again, maybe...we actually meant the same thing in the first place, and that's what's gone awry here? lol

    Just to be clear I am a newbie here but not to forums in general nor to good deals in fact :whistling:. Well sort of a newbie I've lurked around for a while (since jun 2006 in fact) but I don't tend talk much :lazy: and I posted here just in case someone here had had similar experence and was gonna pipe up and say "that happened to me then the ******s charged me for the phone!" or something. Of course I was already on the site looking for an alternative deal to go for.

    The deal that went south was on phones for you for 11 months free on a 12 month contract for a SE w610i. Didn't fancy a 12 months free refurb phone I've worked in a mobile warehouse I've seen the (lack of) quality control refurbing stuff.

    I've now tried for a years free e250 on t-mobile from mobileshop.com figuring I can always send it back if the first one works out after all and if I get refused credit again I'll have to wait for one of the free O2, Tesco, Vodaphone or Orange PAYG sims I've ordered to turn up.

    DONT GIVE IT back

    if you have something delivered to you that you have not ordered or 2 of the same items that are delivered at different times, if you tell the sender they have 6 months to collect the goods at there expence. If they do not collect it after 6 months the goods become your property. I know this is true as it happened to me about 10 years ago. I ordered a flash gun and bracket direct from Olympus to fit a OM2 SLR at a cost of £180 they said it would be delivered in 3 days. After 6 days no sign of it so a phone call was made and they said it would be with me the next day. Next day it turned up and the day after that another one turned up. I rang and told them and was told that it would be collected in 2 days. 6 months later I still had it so asked consumer advice what to do and was told that as I had informed them and it had not been collected I could write to them and claim the goods as my own property. this i did and then sold them in a camera mag for £150:whistling:

    We seem to be 'dissing each other lately, I don't know if it's my fault, but if it it, Soz.
