Carphone Warehouse’s Flexible Leasing is financed through a company called ThinkSmart, meaning they own the smartphone. This means it’s your responsibility to return the handset in good working condition and protect it from loss, theft or damage.
If you fall behind with payments, you won’t be able to switch after 12 months and you’ll be liable for late payment fees. This will have an effect on your credit rating.
Carphone Warehouse operates a 14-day change of mind policy, subject to the handset being returned, unused and unopened.
You must be:
• Over 18 year old
• Have been a UK resident for a minimum of two years
• Be in employment for a minimum of 16 hours a week, have a partner in employment, or be retired and over the age of 50
• Have a home or mobile telephone number
• Have a valid credit card or debit card registered to your current UK home address
The minimum agreement is 24 months
After 12 months you may have the flexibility to switch to a new smartphone. Option to switch is not guaranteed and is subject to criteria and our consent. You will have to sign up for a new agreement with a £49.99 admin fee. It is also subject to an early upgrade fee and return of the original handset. The upgrade fee will not be more than the value of any unpaid lease payments in the minimum hire period.
The Admin Fee is for the services Carphone Warehouse supply including sales consultants, administration and complaints management. The Admin Fee is not related to the Hire Agreement. The Admin Fee is payable separately to Carphone Warehouse.
After 24 months you can choose to make 4 additional rental payments and retain use of the phone for the rest of its remaining useful life (being a further 10 years).
For each handset you will need to apply for a new Flexible Leasing agreement
