    i found a local cpw store which will be selling the 16gb iphone friday

    Is there any difference buying from them? even if it's little ie; contacting cpw instead of o2 in case of problems,etc? Just wondering how cpw make a buck out of it by selling for the same price

    CPW will try it's hardest to sell you un-needed insurance EDIT2:(relating to stolen handsets) with the device.

    Watchdog investigated them for it last year.

    EDIT // Found Source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7115830.stm

    Avoid them, goto O2.

    My advice. :cool:

    If you do there's a search, there are one or two threads about this already - but the upshot is that there is no difference.

    CW warehouse make money on the deal, because they receive a fee for each contract sole to a network.

    With regards to insurance, I take it you already have some arranged?

    Sorry man, I dont mean to hijack your thread or anything but I was just wondering,
    If I were to go to a O2 or CPW store on Friday, what documents would I need to bring with me to get a contract phone? I've tried calling my local store earlier and they didnt answer lol.

    A UK registered credit or debit card.

    Driving license / passport are not needed, but if it assures your peace of mind, take them anyway.

    They will perform a credit check on your card,
    and verify your name and address.
