We know that the mobile telecoms sector suffers with a few ‘pile them high and sell them cheap’ retailers that are more worried about making a quick return than they are in delivering genuine value and service. Some less scrupulous retailers are selling ‘grey market’ imports of certain phones. On the surface these deals can seem attractive – with the retailer able to offer a slightly better than normal price, or delivering different features to the standard versions of phones. A recent example is the Samsung J3 dual-SIM.
Some retailers we know of are selling the ‘Dual SIM’ variant of the Samsung J3 in the UK right now. The trouble is Samsung do NOT sell a dual SIM J3 in the UK. So what’s going on? This is where the ‘grey market’ comes in. Retailers are purchasing stock of the Samsung J3 indirectly from outside the UK. The trouble is that Samsung don’t sell any dual SIM phones in the UK and as such – your Samsung warranty might not be valid if the device was originally purchased from outside the EU. If your phone develops a fault you might not be covered by the manufacturers warranty.
At YB Communications we believe in a different way of doing business. We believe in protecting our customer base by only selling stock that we know has been purchased from UK sources. It protects you and it protects us.
Don’t fall for dodgy dual-SIM offers. As we often say here, if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
