WHERE TO BUY PHONECARE INSURANCE
When you buy a mobile phone from our company, we'll give the option to choose whether or not you'd like to take out insurance cover. If you choose to take out cover for your mobile phone, you will automatically pay premiums on a monthly basis, so if you don't want to stay with us, let us know by calling 0800 049 6189.
- any claim for theft or loss that occurs whilst the user has deliberately left the phone unattended and unsecured;
- any claim for theft from an unattended vehicle, unless the vehicle was locked and the phone concealed from view;
- the excess you need to pay towards any claim (no excess on breakdown);
- claims for breakdown before the manufacturer’s or PhoneCare warranty has expired; or any claim for unauthorised use.
The excess is the amount you must pay toward the cost of a claim. You must pay the excess (shown on your insurance certificate) for each claim you make. There is no excess to be paid on a claim for breakdown.
To make a claim on your policy, follow these steps:
- If your phone has been stolen, you must report it to the police and obtain a crime reference number.
- To make a claim for theft or loss call us on 0800 049 6189 or alternatively visit one of our Carphone Warehouse stores. To make a claim for damage or breakdown, we recommend you visit any Carphone Warehouse store so that your phone can be promptly assessed. If you have difficulties in reaching one of our stores, please call us on 0800 049 6189.
Before you contact us, please make sure you have:
- A police crime-reference number for theft claims
- The damaged phone or accessory to hand for claims for breakdown, accidental or liquid damage
