    Hey guys

    I accidentally smashed my phone last weekend and it turns out that it wasn't insured as I thought it was.

    Long story short, I got the receipt for it but never paid a penny of insurance and therefore I am not eligible for a free repair/replacement. :p

    Do you guys know any sites where you can buy mobile phones (in UK) cheap?

    eBay's OK... just be sure the seller is reputable, without a shred of legitimate complaints... there are some disreputable sellers on there trying to move stolen phones, and the mobile providers won't activate them.

    Do the providers in the UK not have a "free phone every 2 years" program like most do in the States? Or are you not to your "anniversary date" yet?

    Heh, if you are on a contract phone you get an upgrade every year... It just so happens I had mine in May and Downgraded - reduced my contract price per month and took £75 credit. Unlucky timing on my behalf :(

    Ah thanks guys, just got myself a Sony Ericsson k700i for £31 inc. P&P off ebay

    It was a k750i that I broke, so it's a bit of a downgrade but considering it was my fault I can't complain :rolleyes:

    I was going to suggest depending on what your phone was , to get in insured then after a month or so, put a claim in , thats dishonest i know but its helped me out in the past

    No, the house is currently un-insured as we only moved in 3 months ago. We are still paying the insurance on old flat until we get it sorted :blink

    Can I ask what network your on? and what contract? I was going to get one of these but o2 said it had to be 18 month contract. I know you can push them but wasn't sure if they'd give it to me on 12 month contract :twisted:
