Yet another number that’s been calling my mobile on a daily basis over the last couple of weeks. This one belongs to Phones 4U, a company in the UK mobile phone industry which firmly believes in the hard sell ethos. At the moment they aren’t going to sell me anything because despite calling me many times I’ve yet to hear a voice on the other end, they just hang up.
I think I was with Phones 4U when I first took out a Vodafone contract, many years back. In 2003 Vodafone thought better of that arrangement and dealt with me directly instead. Needless to say I got a much better deal from then on. Looking at their website now it’s pretty obvious they are still unable to offer Vodafone. Score one for Vodafone for not being associated with their nasty hard-sell tactics.
Phones4U was owned by high-profile, corporate tough-guy John Caudwell. He sold them in 2005 and I’m not sure who owns them now. Don’t really care either, I just wish they’d stop calling me!
