    Mobile phone question???

    I'm thinking of buying a mobile off here, it's only 2 months old, where would i stand if anything went wrong with the handset, will the supplier (orange) repair/replace without the recipt and without me being the original buyer??

    Cheers in advance for any help

    Thanks for the info:thumbsup:

    Carphone warehouse will repair any phone thats under warranty,(regardless of which shop it was bought from) in one of their repair centres but they ask for a proof of purchase. I took one into them,which was under warranty,didn't have a receipt though so they wouldn't entertain it. They scanned the imei and said also it wasn't bought from any of their stores.

    It was on orange network,I then took it to an orange store,asked them could they check it on their system,they said no,I would need an exact date & place of purchase for them to even be able to check and they also said I needed to produce the original receipt

    Im worried about this.
    I have just bought a moby off someone on here and by the time i thought about this problem, it was too late!
    They didnt have a receipt as it was just an upgrade.

    What about if you get some moby insurance?
    Im gonna look into that and hopefully it'll cover the phone for everything.

    The warranty most likely would only be valid for the original owner anyhow,

    Whoever took out the upgrade may not have a purchase receipt if the phone was free but they would have some form of paper work,

    I'd imagine if you were able to take out insurance on it it would only be valid for loss/accidental damage/theft, rather than a fault developing with the phone that the warranty would have covered
