O2 recycling

I've just upgraded to the samsung s9+ so I traded my s8+ in. They offered £300 then today contacted me to say they'd only offer £60 as the screen has LCD damage. The phone was immaculate. I only got it in august 2017. If that's the case surely I can return the phone to o2 to be fixed under warranty?

Re: O2 recycling

It’s a common scam from o2 recycle to do this kind of thing.
Ask for it to be returned to you and trade it in to CEX instead.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
Lumia 950 Dual (O2 & Sfr) and Z3 Tablet (Three UK)
iPhone7 (EE)

nil desperandum. When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, are taken away.

I wish someone would take a close look at this appalling practice by O2 Recycle. They are constantly getting away with this.

Re: O2 recycling

I've lost count of the number of times I've seen similar threads like this one. I wonder how many people who don't come to this forum buy into what O2 Recycle tells them, and wind up getting so much less when they send in their phones? It's an unscrupulous practice.

Worth noting, oled burn in is classed as screen damage and if even slightly there, they'll jump at chance to rip you off.
Also worth noting, Samsung warranty covers burn in.

Re: O2 recycling

I'm in the o2 shop now to send it back. Staff are saying oooh we don't know if it's covered and don't seem to have a clue. I've checked the screen once I got it back and can't see a thing. I do think they are trying it on.
