    Default [Price Drop] Uk price drop

    Ok, so i already own a US iphone which the other day i plugged into a speaker set, and it fried a chip

    Anyways, when into carphone warehouse today, in order to purchase a new iphone, anyway guy behind the counter reckons theres going to be a 100 price drop in advance for the new version expected in june. The price drop is expected in the next 7 days the guy says.

    So just a bit of advice for you customers who plan to buy a new iphone in the Uk in the following weeks, delay as much as you can.

    Although personally i believe that 100 is a rather big drop and might not happen in the next 7 days its just a bit of advice for you guys in the Uk

    Thank you bobhope, yea im just trying to help people out. I know that the Carphone Warehouse do something that if within 14 days of your purchase the price is dropped you get the difference back. Not sure the name of it though

    I find carphonewarehouse a bit intimidating. I bought an iphone from them in January, and returned it within 2 weeks (repair needed message following unsuccessful gunlock). They handed me another iphone.

    On friday i went into the store to change my address (I ordered a new contract from e2save.com, and they got my address wrong, so had to go in show proof of my current address). The sales assistant asked why i have 2 iphones (I said coz one of them was faulty), and then he asked me question about have i signed a contract, blah blah.

    Then, he would not change my address on the system, and said that the computers are not working, and to come back in 2 hours. I immediately went into to "attack is best form of defense", and had a go at the sales person about how rude he is, and not very helpful etc. Then the store manager stepped up, and changed everything for me, and i left a happy man. lol.

    So, the moral of the story is: Avoid carphonewarehouse if you can, and if you get cornered by a sales assistant, just raise voice and complain about the rudeness/unhelpfulness of the staff.

    Haha, I have a plan to rip of them.

    Basicaly i own a US iphone, living in the uk, its broken, plan being.

    1) Buy a new UK Iphone from them, take home
    2) Remove the back of the old broken US iphone and replace with the back of the new UK iphone (Bcos they have different logos)
    3) Take Old broken iphone, with new UK back into the store within 28, and say it wont turn on, they replace no questions asked
    4) This leaves me with two new iphones for the price of one

    =] Happy lad =]
