Found 19th Mar 2010
hi, mate just bought a blackberry from Tesco. got it home and it had a sim in it already and bbm pins written all over the manual. Turned it on and the blackberry has loads of stuff on it, bbm and pictures and the guys email and facebook.
Basically all their details on it, bbmessenger had already been used which means we cant use it.

Where do we stand?

edit:
we found out thru talking to the people on bbm the guy whos phone it is brother works at the tesco phone shop.

Where do we stand? this is pretty bad selling us a second hand phone that wont work surely? especially as our mate had to stay down for an extra day tomorrow to go in store and sort it out.

Where do we stand?
i guess what im really saying is : CAN WE GET FREE STUFF?

i dnno, at least a cover surely

If you bought this as a NEW product then it
obviously is not. Take it back and get a full
refund. The goods are not as stated and the law is
on your side.
There should be no problem at all.
I would also put in a complaint to them.
This kind of service is NOT acceptable.
Forget the free stuff, you could have problems.
I had this happen to me at Argos a few years ago.
Someone had returned the phone to Argos and they had
made no checks to see if it had been used.

Refund or replacement as standard, yes.

Ask for £1000 you deserve it

Ask for £1000 you deserve it



ask for £2000 so when they knock you down to £1000, you get what you deserve

ask for petrol money

Ask for a double cheeseburger with fries

Ask for half a pound of common sense, I can see that your friend forgot to put some in his basket.

You bought a new phone.

Tescos did not supply a new phone.

Breach of contract.

Worse. They don't have access to secondhand phones, so they must have put someone's returned phone old phone back on the shelf.

Not only has that meant they were selling an old phone as new, but they have also failed in their duty of care that the previous owner's private data is now in someone else's hands. Private data which could include personal information, bank details, etc.

For the breach of contract the very least you should expect is to have what you paid for: a new phone.

With regard to the breach in their duty of care, you could ask the local Trading Standard officer or at least mention that you are thinking of involving him when you write to head office.

Mistakes happen. Under these trivial circumstances a replacement or refund will suffice.

I would be incredibly surprised if Tesco have a duty of care to the person who returned their phone as they probably should have ensured that their details were already off of the phone. If you run by this rule then the duty of care would just continue for pretty much any scenario of this nature.

Did you not check the box was sealed. I'd never accept/buy a phone classed as brand new With the seal broken

good it all helps, what did they actually say when you told them, was the guy who had used it at work? Had he just borrowed it or had he ever bought it. Like those girls that wear the clothes from clothes shops and return them the next morning.
