I bought the LG G6 Play last week after the phone arrived, I rang them to cancel. On the first call they refused to cancel saying to call cpw.... Then next day I rang again and it wad cancelled in two minutes... Only issue is that it has a search mark on your credit history.... As some one who work on this on dayly basis, telecommunications searches is not a big deal, but having credit card searches (3 in the last three months) is a straight decline....
OK buddy, let's just leave it there between us, thanks for your input though (highfive)
I would have thought the terms & conditions are clear "in which case you agree to pay us the amount of the discount being the stand-alone retail price of the Promotional Items (i.e. the price you would have paid had you purchased the Promotional Items without entering into the Services Contract) less any amount paid by you at the time of purchase for the Promotional Items". The 1 month may well be less (based on info above the outstanding amout would be £60, i.e. £119.99 less £59.99). I certainly would not want to risk fraud allegations for a 50% discount on a phone. It does bring up an interesting point; what if a mobile operator did something that gave rise to the user cancelling without penalty - the retailer could still enforce their contract (i.e. the above). What took me to the fair was the Vodafone pay monthly terms; they can cancel at any time if they cannot provide you the service or for any reason with 30 days notice (no issue there), but if they do, you have to pay back the 'equipment subsidy'. Oh & just to make it even more ridiculous, they will tell you how to calculate the subsidy in your welcome letter (i.e. after you 'sign on the dotted line') - classic!
They can only bill you for 1 month, pay for the first month if it makes you sleep at night.
I hadn't realised yesterday - I certainly didn't entertain buying. Surely you can see that you are effectively recommending a very dangerous path? What next - buy stuff at tesco, get & use the petrol voucher, then return the stuff?
