    • The Legal Ombudsman has a wider remit than the SRA, and can always refer matters on to the SRA where they find a breach of the SRA's code.   I'd suggest writing to the solicitors, highlighting these issues, asking them to refund the money. If they don't then complain to the LO.
    • Good morning all,   I have an update for you all, shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company, Obviously i agreed but after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation, I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly  salary, I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i dont have the funds to finance a solicitor,so any advice would be appreciated.  
    • Sorry, but what does this mean?   Who are ARC? It would be helpful if you could be a little bit more clear about what happened. I don't understand why you are not simply proceeding against Amazon – because it is clearly their responsibility as it was their driver or courier company
    • I understand that you were involved in a contentious divorce in respect of which there was a bill for court costs – £850. You decided to challenge the costs in court and you lost and an order was made against you. We decided to appeal the order but before the appeal was heard, the solicitors made you a without prejudice offer of a 50-50 split – £425. You agree to this and you signed the document to that effect which you returned to the solicitors. Despite that the solicitors are now trying to impose the original £850 order. Is that the correct order of events? "Without prejudice" is certainly something that doesn't seem to be very well understood, including by solicitors. "Without prejudice" can protect an offer from being disclosed to the court where the offer has been refused so that it is not binding on anyone. However, without prejudice cannot be used to hide everything from the court – including wrongdoings, unethical behaviour et cetera. It seems to me that once you sign the agreement you effectively had a contract. I'd like to know a little bit more about the agreement that you signed but presumably it was intended to bring a halt to any further proceedings. I don't think there is any difficulty about disclosing a contract to the court in the circumstances. It is only the offer which was made without prejudice. Once the agreement was accepted and signed then the document acquired a wholly different character. It was no longer an offer open to be accepted or refused. It was a legally binding contract which imposed obligations upon both sides. In my view the solicitors have acted in a highly unethical way and I would begin by making a complaint to the SRA. I wonder whether the solicitors proposed the 50-50 split to you without consulting with their client and when they then contacted their client and told her what had been agreed, she refused to accept it and on that basis the solicitors recognised that they had made an error but rather than accept their responsibility and footing the £425 out of their own pockets, they preferred to get it from you. Of course this is just speculation but it seems to me to be quite a possible scenario. I'd like to see the agreement post up here please – that my sense is that you should complain to the SRA and you should tell the solicitors that this is what you're doing.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

I have an Apple iPhone which is on a 2 year contract with O2 and I signed up for it about 2 months ago, the problem I have is that the battery on device is only lasting about 5 hours on stand by and its clearly not right.


O2 do not want to know and advise me to call the network directly, I call then and they say that the need to send it off for repair etc,


Is this right? I am paying £35 PM + £10PM Insurance for a 2 month phone with damage what so ever to be sent away for repair.


what if anything am I entitled to?

I'll give the bad news first, as the phone is 2 months old, as far as I am aware O2 have a repsonsilbility for the first 30days(I may be wrong and I'm sure someone will tell you if I am) but you have a 12 month warranty with Apple the makers of the phone. It would mean them having to have a look at the phone to check it out and find the fault, which in turn would mean that you don't have to claim on the insurance route. It may be worth bearing in mind that the bods at the Eu state that electrical equipment should be guaranteed for at least 2 years. I found that out from one of the main newspapers after a guy went to tescos because his tv went wrong just after 12 months of use. You may be able to google it to find more info.


But in the first instance, I would goto Apple. I had to do this when my LG 910 wouldn't work properly the touch screen wasn't working properly, so I called them explained what was going on they sent me out all the bits to send my phone for repair under the 12 month warranty given by LG, lucky enough it was a software problem and was sorted out pretty quickly, so I didn't have to claim on the phone insurance that I have.


So try that route first.

who did you actually get the phone from? if it was an O2 store the store is responsbile under the sale of goods act. Just ask them for a new battery - it could just be as simple as that - go and play nice to the store manager

Do you have a Apple store nearby, if you do take it in and they might replace it on the spot. My wife has a 3G (not the new 3Gs) which developed a charging problem about 6 months in to her contract, O2 didn't want to know as she didn't have insurance so she took it in to Apple in Southampton. One of the guys tested the phone but could not replicate the fault but did say that the handset would be replaced if she provided proof of ownership and the original packaging. We went back the following day and it was swapped out there and then.


To be honest I can't fault the staff in the Southampton store, they have been fantastic on the three occasions we have needed their help. My only criticism is they do seem a little too happy, like an American store assistant but on drugs!

If its an I-Phone all O2 stores send them back to Apple. Batteries and other accessories are covered for 6 months. You need to go through your O2 store as the retailer, not via apple. Dont let them fob you off(I know, as I work for the company that handles O2's repairs, as well as other phone companies)
