    You can, yes. The warranty from the likes of Carphone Warehouse/o2 etc. however has to be purchased there and then so that they can guarantee that the phone is in perfect condition.

    Surely 2G means 2G in mobile phone data terms only therefore the first iphone

    ie.

    2G (data) phones
    iphone 2G = First iphone

    3G (data) phones
    iphone 3G = Second iphone
    iphone 3GS = Third iphone

    They are really taking the P by not offering a two year warranty on a 24 month contract for a phone that costs 500+ to replace.

    Aren't there EU regs that state all consumer products must be covered by a 2 year warranty.

    The burden of proof changes at the 1 year mark (I think).

    Burden of proof changes after 6 months AFAIK

    Consumer Direct - Extended warranties

    There has been some recent press activity around EU legislation which appears to provide consumers with a '2 year guarantee' on goods.

    The EU legislation describes a legal guarantee which is enforceable across Europe for a minimum of 2 years. The use of the term ‘guarantee’ can be somewhat misleading as many consumers relate this to manufacturers/ retailers guarantees on goods which are often freely given for around 1 year after the purchase of some goods.

    The EU legislation does apply in the UK, however as the UK already had a whole host of consumer legislation, instead of creating new laws the changes were incorporated into existing UK law, The Sale of Goods Act as amended 1979.

    The UK already has far greater protection for consumers than is generally found in the EU legislation. Some of the benefits of the Sale of Goods Act include a 6 year statutory limitation period as opposed to the 2 years offered by EU, which means that you can bring a claim for up to 6 years in the UK and Wales and 5 years in Scotland and can reject goods and claim a refund of the price paid under certain circumstances.

    Those ones on eBay are from the US. Can they be used in UK?
