Pre-owned phones - Guide

By: joycewebber1977 | 19-06-2019 12:16

Just bought a pre-owned phone and assumed it would come with a charger. But of course not. It would have been helpful to have had a reminder that chargers are not included when buying a pre-owned phone, on this page - https://www.giffgaff.com/mobile-phones/pre-owned. And, also on that page, have a link to the guidelines - at the moment, the guide is buried and definitely not easy to find, especially if you don't know it exists. This would make it clear that a charger won't be included with the 'new' phone and not come as an annoying surprise.

Had the same thought today when I unwrapped my shiny re-new diddyputer, though I half expected it and so wasn't really annoyed. I guess we can use any USB wall plug, they're not hard to come by, right?

Have checked the pre-owned phone purchase screens?

EVERY screen where the user actually purchases a pre-owned phone they are told that it comes with a USB cable and NOT a charger.

Thus a no from me...

Yes on the main page there isn’t but it hat matters in my opinion is when you select the phone you want which is what matters and everyone buying given the chance to read in detail what they are buying tans that part clearly states the no charger issue.

Chargers in general are declining in popularity now with usb cables being the norm now and hence probably giffgaff giving it less coverage on the main page. But the info is there on the purchase page.

Oh this one again! Probably some would say justifiably but this has been suggested already and a good number of times.

Seems like something that makes sense, I believe giffgaff do state that there is no charger included.

I expect it is our over nannying society protecting us from unchecked mains electrical connection or something as asinine.

Well that's becoming a pattern three comments with the second two contradicting the first. Looks like bad habits are being spread from other members.
