Re: iPhone broken charger


How long have you had the charger? I suppose O2 and Apple could say you broke it yourself.

I don't think you will get anyone to take responsibility for a charger. You may be better off buying a replacement.

Not what you want to hear, but I think that will be the only outcome.

They won’t take responsibility, they will just say you have to purchase a new one

Re: iPhone broken charger

Thanks for the input, but to give my side of things here is the reason I don’t want to buy one. Firstly they’re £20 for 1 metre or £30 for 2 metre. That’s a lot of money. It wasn’t my fault it’s not working properly. It’s just died on me. Also I’m paying nearly £90 for the phone a month. I resign paying for a charger that’s in good condition otherwise. I know I could go to Poundland, but they’re not good for my battery, does insurance include accessories? Or their warranty perhaps. I’m paying £1000 for the phone so I should at least be able to charge it. Thanks in advance

Insurance policy excess would be £50 minimum, so not a viable option.
Loads on Amazon for a lot less than that.
I'd cut my losses and just order one from there https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_5_7?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=iphone+charger&s...
