Why is it so difficult buying things from Carphone Warehouse?

Why is it so difficult buying things from Carphone Warehouse?

| September 24, 2015 | 3 Replies

  First off, this may just be coincidental but my last two purchases from Carphone Warehouse have been a lot tougher than they should have been. Basically no one able to help properly, and being shoved back and forth from customer service and the physical store. The first was regarding the free wireless charger that comes […]

| July 29, 2013 | 114 Replies

Windows Phone is a Microsoft product that has an amazing vision of what a smartphone should be, not restricted by the common features that other smartphones have, it goes for a different target audience and experience so it operates differently.

  Nokia concentrating on smartphones and not producing tablets is somewhat understandable given the current conditions for Nokia. But in the world of mobile phones (which includes smartphones) trends within this category are not too be missed. It isn’t the first time Nokians got left behind. In clamshell and touch, Nokia was much too arrogant […]

  What am I looking at above? It’s a concept Instagram for WP8. What am I looking at below? It’s Instagram. On BB10. And apparently, it’s NOT an Android emulation. It’s rumoured to be native. If that’s the case then there’s some tables flipping this Sunday :p.  (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ No, we aren’t the only ones beginning […]

Rant: How Microsoft Are Killing Themselves (and Me) With Regional Restrictions

Got tipped this the other day from Syed ( @spunkybloke ), about the Lumia 900 arriving in stores in KSA. I pushed the post back until I could get more information from him, and now we have it, as well as official confirmation, so I thought it was an appropriate time to post. So as […]

| August 9, 2012 | 141 Replies

I posted this over at MobilePhoneInnovation, so I figured I should post it here as well, since it is something a few readers may be interested in taking a look at. I’ve been doing some digging and have come across an interesting quote by somebody that was a part of getting MeeGo-Harmattan to where it […]
