Sell Phone Skill

Which mobile phone outlet would you say had the best sales staff?

Out of my recent experiences of Orange, T-Mobile, Carphone Warehouse, Phones 4U and The Link, here is how they turned out...

Winner: Carphone Warehouse! the guy was fantastic, doing the best deal, remembering who I was the day after (v. imp!) and coming up with a smart way to circumvent my porting problem switching from T-Mobile to Vodafone.

Loser: Phones 4U! the girl couldn't even remember who I was less than 24hrs later, didn't try very hard and didn't seem very interested in helping me get a good deal.

Effort Award: The Link, trying to sell me some way over the top, expensive phone and contract when they didn't have what I want - all with a straight face!

Sympathy Award: T-Mobile, their stupid F%&*ing upgrade rules meant I had to go somewhere else - still at least they provided me with the new sim card bought for me free by carphone warehouse ( ) and were very nice...

Discuss!

They rated average - probably why I forgot to mention them...

Also I didn't even bother getting round to visiting O2 and Vodafone etc...

My first ever phone was an Orange, if that makes you and the Dutchies happier?

Easily explained. Your sheer ugliness meant the guy from Carphone Warehouse couldn't forget you mug, for the same reason the girl from Phones 4U mentally blocked you after the trauma of your first visit.

oh and I've just bought an Orange phone, well an Orange contract.. the phone comes with it...
